Routes to assess


The Human Impact Route Assessment (HIRA) tool and process aims to place safety of Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) at the forefront of the heavy vehicle route selection process.

This tool should be used by a workshop coordinator. The coordinator will provide some initial details about the plan and routes, and then present a workshop by sharing the tool on their screen, allowing workshop participants to assess the different routes against criteria.
