Nepal Road Safety Barriers for Open Roads Project

Under the Road Sector Development Project, the World Bank financed a Road Safety Audit of various sections of the Nepalese Strategic Road Network (2015-2017) to identify critical road safety risks and recommend solutions. Building on this work, the Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF) with funding from UK Aid supported the installation of 73,000 meters of crash barriers along some of the country’s deadliest roads. According to GRSF projected estimates, the new barriers may save up to 3,456 lives over the next 20 years, in addition to preventing countless injuries.
