Green Rural Road (GRR) is an inventiveness for the infrastructure to be environmental and sustainable responsible to the societies. With the initiatives of management and technical approach for rural road life cycle from construction to its maintenance processes, it is important to assess the assessment system which highlights the most critical tools on GRR Assessment which mostly agreed the development of green based on SITES, GreenLites, Envision and BE2ST in-Highways and MYGHI that uses the social and safety as major category of assessment model. Social and safety criteria’s basically covers the pollutants that endanger the public health, global climate, biodiversity or integrity of ecological processes which allows the basic approach requirements of individuals and societies to be met safely. The aim of this study is to analyse the social and safety elements which therefore outlined in Malaysia GRR Index and its assessment. Data was achieved through an extensive literature reviews,which also been validated by expert point of view and has been distributed among 100 experts but only 73 responses included experts and stakeholders have been taken into consideration for further analysis. The data had been analyzed using SPSS with factor analysis method. From the early benchmarking ,its been highlighted that there are (35) elements that have been taken into consideration. It were then classify into (10) sub criteria and finally (5) criteria. The result have shown that five of the criteria reflected social sustainability (economy, public acceptance and environment) while three reflected safety issues (services and facilities, pollution reduction, management issue). There were (35) variables that had been analyzed but three (3) items were removed due to not significance loading.Therefore the final model consists of 32 items. Analysis of the major factor weights shows that Services and Facilities is weighted the highest accounting for 58%. This signify that most of respondents profess the importance of providing planned pedestrian networks, disable user infrastructure and improving health and education communities over better road access. As conclusion, by developing the indicator of social and safety for rural road, the sustainability development will be holistically accomplished.
