BARBADOS’ ROADS ARE among some of the safest in the region.

That was the finding of a recent survey carried out by the International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP) in collaboration with the Ministry of Transport and Works.

Explaining that the programme used a rating scale of one to five, with one being the lowest and five the highest, European development director of iRAP, James Brathwaite, yesterday said 27 per cent of the road’s assessed had received a three star rating while 50 per cent were rated two stars.

He said while five stars were the highest rating, countries needed to strive for a rating of at least three.
