Road Controlling Authority Reports

REG has developed Road Controlling Authority Reports to help decision-makers understand transport value using metrics, ratings and scores on service performance and outcomes.

A majority of the data presented in each RCA Report is already available in various places across the sector – but is not easily accessible or easy to understand. Each of the 67 RCA reports make local results and comparable evidence available in two-pages.  

Reports published in June 2020 present 2018/19 results and evidence.

Publishing the RCA Reports should lead to delivering better value in the transport sector. These reports provide a national, objective picture of transport investment and performance in a single resource. RCA Reports present clear and comparable data on value, and enable peer-to-peer comparisons and understanding of sector performance.

Publication of RCA Reports in December 2020 will present transport sector data for the 2019/20 year.

Performance results and evidence in each report are segmented into a headlines summary and ten separate ‘zones’ – including Co-investor Assurance and Service Performance.
