Review of road safety projects in Peru : Evaluation of project proposals establishing a medium and long-term road safety strategy Koornstra, Matthijs J

By: Koornstra, Matthijs JPublication details: Leidschendam Stichting wetenschappelijk onderzoek verkeersveiligheid, SWOV, 2000; Report R-2000-22, Description: 60 sSubject(s): Netherlands | Peru | Safety | Planning | Accident prevention | Economics | Financing | | 80Online resources: Publikation/Publication Abstract: The rapid motorization and enlargement of the road infrastructure in Peru have resulted in rapidly increasing numbers of fatalities, injuries and accidents. The (conservative) estimate of the macroeconomic loss due to traffic accidents amounts to 1.6% of the gross national product of Peru, and is on the rise. A National Road Safety Strategy 2000-2004 for Peru is being prepared as part of the Second Transport Rehabilitation Project (TRP-II), which is financed through funding from the World Bank. It involves the implementation of seven selected non-infrastructural projects and one project for infrastructural improvement of road safety. The specification of the projects has been prepared by the National Road Safety Council of Peru (CNSV) with the help of a reviewing expert from the SWOV Institute for Road Safety Research in the Netherlands. The review of SWOV is documented in this summary report for the World Bank and the National Road Safety Council in Peru. It contains a quantitative analysis of road safety improvement in Peru, its feasible achievement, and the review of the eight project proposals for the road safety component of TRP-II.
