Fast Tracking Road Safety Initiatives in Gujarat

Dear IRF Member,

IRF held the conference "Fast Tracking Road Safety Initiatives in Gujarat" on 10 June 2017 in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The conference was inaugurated by Dr. J. N. Singh, Chief Secretary of Gujarat State and was attended by senior members of the Gujarat State Government, and the Government of India. Almost 150 delegates attended the event. The conference covered the 4E's of road safety: Engineering, Education, Enforcement, and Emergency care.

One of the most important outcomes of this event was the decision to use the stretch of national highway between Surat (a city in Gujarat state) and Hazira (a port city in Gujarat) as a pilot project to demonstrate how the 4E's can be implemented to improve road safety.

The conference received extensive media coverage in the local press and we are pleased to share these with you (unfortunately, not all the articles are in English, but we wanted to give you a flavor of the press coverage that IRF Geneva has been receiving).

For further information please contact our Secretariat, by e-mail: info@irfnet.ch or by phone: +41 22 306 02 60
