In recent years, China has reported that as a result of systematic road safety initiatives, including those identified in the National Road Safety Action Plan, road trauma statistics have improved. One recent road safety initiative is ChinaRAP (China Road Assessment Program). The first phase of ‘Building ChinaRAP’ project was primarily designed to test the feasibility of drawing on both iRAP and RIOH expertise and knowledge for assessments in China. The project involved road surveys, recording of road infrastructure attributes, collection of supporting data (such as speeds) and risk assessments. This paper summarizes the results of the pilot assessment of one particularly high-priority road. Overall, the first phase of Building ChinaRAP found that both the iRAP model and the RIOH models produce meaning and complementary results for China. In particular, meaningful results were produced for various road classes and road user types.
