DfT to close English road safety comparison website

It added that the equivalent information is now widely available online from several other sources – meaning it provides low value for taxpayers.

The ‘English road safety comparison’ website was launched in March 2013 to provide a detailed collision map, showing the precise location of the sites where injuries have occurred on the English road network.

The website also provided comparative statistical data on accident rates for each local authority, alongside their expenditure and other demographic data that could impact upon local road safety.

Since the launch of the website a number of similar collision maps have emerged on the market, including the CrashMap collision map.

The ‘English road safety comparison’ website receives around 1,232 users per month. After the site closes on 27 March, the remaining data will continue to be publicly available in alternative locations, such as:

Road safety data

Local authority capital expenditure

Local authority revenue expenditure

Population estimates
