Two leading bodies in road safety research, intervention design
and evaluation sign-up to long term collaboration
TRL (Transport Research Laboratory) & Road Safety Analysis (RSA) today announce their commitment to combine capabilities and expertise to support road safety delivery in the UK.
The move brings together two organisations that share a commitment to deliver high quality road safety interventions and services to support local authorities.
With over 75 years of experience, TRL works at the leading edge of transport globally, generating and applying science, knowledge and understanding to develop innovative solutions and software. RSA was established much more recently after developing the multi award-winning MAST Online project; it has grown rapidly to deliver a range of related services particularly to the public sector.
Working together, these organisations are planning a number of projects to provide new tools and make their joint expertise more accessible to professionals. At a time when the industry is increasingly looking to improve outcomes and manage costs, the collaboration is expected to harness the capability and innovation of both bodies to produce effective solutions that can make a difference.
Speaking on behalf of TRL, Tracy Savill, Director of Road Safety Division commented, “The agreement we have signed with Road Safety Analysis is another mark of our commitment to the road safety profession. TRL has a wealth of knowledge and expertise on casualty reduction and, through our partnership with Road Safety Analysis, this can be delivered directly to local authorities who work on the front line of road safety delivery in the UK.”
Dan Campsall, Communications Director at RSA said, “At RSA we have brought forward a number of innovations that are now being widely used by road safety delivery bodies across the whole of the UK but we recognise that we need to work with organisations of the calibre of TRL to go further. The expertise that we share will provide significant support to local authorities looking to make progress on casualty reduction.”
