WLA longitudinal study conducted by National Highways with the support of the Motorcycle Working Group identified the most important measures to increase road safety for motorcyclists. It has been highlighted Various measures to make the strategic road network safer for motorcyclists, Thanks to the diligence of the Motorcycle Working Group, which was established by the then Highways of England in 2015.

Then there is one A set of tips for designing intersecting and rounded curves.
the National highways have shown over time that they have listened to and implemented recommendations which are put into practice and form part of procedural updates in the design phase.
