ARRB's contribution to the New Zealand Road Assessment Program

by Australian Road Research Board on July 1, 2010

On the 25th June 2010, the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) released the New Zealand Road Assessment Programme (KiwiRAP) results.

The New Zealand Road Assessment Programme, KiwiRAP, is a road safety partnership between the Automobile Association and New Zealand government agencies: NZ Transport Agency, Ministry of Transport, Accident Compensation Corporation, and New Zealand Police.

Further information on KiwiRAP can be found on the NZTA website www.nzta.govt.nz or on the KiwiRAP website www.kiwirap.org.nz/

The New Zealand Transport Agency commissioned ARRB Group to undertake a KiwiRAP assessment of the state highways. The purpose is to provide star ratings for the entire New Zealand state highway network. The star ratings provide a measure of the safety performance of the road infrastructure.

ARRB’s contribution to KiwiRAP involved the following three tasks:

• development of the KiwiRAP assessment process (in partnership with NZ Transport Agency);

• video rating of the entire 10,187 km of the NZ state rural road network, where the speed limit is 80 km/h or more;

• data analysis and provision of star ratings for 10,002 km of rural highways with speed limits of 80km/h or more based on the KiwiRAP assessment process.
