The Transport Research Laboratory and Road Safety Analysis are joining forces 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.
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.
Both organisations are now planning a number of projects to provide new tools and make their joint expertise more accessible to professionals.
Speaking on behalf of TRL, Tracy Savill, Director of Road Safety Division said: “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, we can deliver 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. “
