Kent County Council – A227 in Kent
For nearly a decade, Britain has been among pathfinding nations in seeking to measure systematically the risk posed to road users from road infrastructure.
Since 2002, the Road Safety Foundation (RSF) has been mapping the rate of death and serious injury on Britain’s roads annually applying the protocols developed through the European and International Road Assessment Programmes (EuroRAP in Europe). Each year an award goes to the authority with the most improved road.
The most improved route in 2016 is the A227 between Tonbridge High Street and Borough Green in Kent. It is a 2-lane single carriageway, corridor of 12km through countryside, towns and villages.
