What’s It About?
Delhi govt launched the ‘Zero Fatality Corridor’ (ZFC) to assess the cause for crashes on the stretch between Burari Chowk and Bhalswa chowk on the outer ring road.
The initiative aimed at bringing down injuries and deaths due to road crashes and to be run in partnership with SaveLIFE Foundation, a leading road safety non-profit, was launched by Delhi’s transport minister Kailash Gahlot.
Officials said that the activity was in line with Delhi government’s plan of action to reduce fatalities due to road crashes by 30 percent by 2020.
“Delhi witnessed 1,691 road crash fatalities last year and our government is trying to change that by adopting a new approach to tackle this pandemic. Through the ‘Zero Fatality Corridor’ pilot project our aim is to reduce the fatalities to near zero levels on this particular stretch. After evaluating the impact of the initiative, we will replicate the model in other parts of the city.” Gahlot said.
Delhi govt is demonstrating exemplary leadership and political will to make Delhi’s roads safe for all. The partnership, in addition to reducing road accidents and deaths, aims to create a replicable partnership model for government and non-government organizations to collaborate on key issues affecting citizens in our country.
