Black Spot Mitigation Guidelines for Rwanda

Black Spot Management (BSM) is one of the most critical road safety tools used for

improving dangerous locations and sections on roads. Experience from years of black spot improvement work in developed and developing countries shows that BSM is still a highly effective engineering tool towards the

improvement of road safety.

Tatweer has commenced its work on the Black Spot Mitigation Guidelines which will

be tailored for Rwanda’s transportation system. The guidelines will be based on

international best practices and research applicable methodologies. The purpose of

this task is to assess blackspot locations and propose countermeasures that align with

safe system principles along with the objective of eliminating or reducing roadway


The guidelines will include methodologies of blackspot identification, countermeasure

strategies and options for prioritizing such countermeasures.
