Tanzanian Road Assessment Programme launched

14 September 2022

TanRAP, the  Tanzanian Road Assessment Programme has been launched in Dar es Salaam to eliminate high-risk roads and curb the more than 16,000 people who die on the country’s roads annually.

The Government of Tanzania through the Ministry of Works and Transport marked the launch by signing a Letter of Intent to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with the International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP) and the occasion culminated with the release of a survey vehicle to undertake a tranche of TanRAP surveys along approximately 1,000km in Tanzania this year.

Tanzania is the very first country to be selected under the United Nations Road Safety Fund initiative to implement the UNRSC  Ten Step approach  to improve road infrastructure safety on both new and existing roads
