The Indian government is to review road construction, infrastructure and safety, including traffic management, in the wake of a spate of road accidents in Mumbai, Delhi and Hyderabad.
In a letter to the Home Minister on Wednesday, the National Road Safety Council (NRSC) said it would look at the “complexity” of roads in the four cities.
The NRSC, a voluntary body of civil servants, has been set up to oversee the state governments implementation of the National Highway Development Authority Act.
The law requires a report on road construction and the implementation of infrastructure projects in the country.
A letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been sent to the Prime Minister’s Office to get a copy of the letter.
The NRSG will conduct a comprehensive review of road and infrastructure in India.
According to a statement, the NRS has “received detailed feedback” on the road safety of the cities and it has asked the Centre to review its current road management plans.
It said that the NPSC will also look at other road and other infrastructure projects.
