Mumbai, 19th October 2022: After the accident on Bandra-Worli Sea Bridge, the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has decided to make the Sea Bridge a zero-accident road. For this, the number of speed control cameras will be increased, along with increasing the manpower on the sea bridge. Also, notice boards will be increased, and it has been decided to take strict action against those who violate traffic rules.
In the first week of October, a terrible accident took place in Pavne at around three in the middle of the night. Five people died, and 10 people were injured. After this terrible accident, the issue of the safety of the sea bridge has come to the fore. Against this backdrop, MSRDC has decided to make Sagari Setu a zero-accident road. Accordingly, a meeting was held on Tuesday in the presence of MSRDC Managing Director Radheshyam Mopalwar, other senior officers, traffic police, toll collection contractors, and charitable organizations working for zero-accident roads.
In this meeting, senior officials of MSRDC informed that many important decisions were taken to make Sagari Setu a zero-accident road.
Multiple accidents occur due to speeding, wrong direction, drunk driving, overtaking, and many other reasons. Therefore, first of all, it was decided to take strict action against the drivers who violate the traffic rules. For this, the manpower will be increased to keep a close eye on the drivers, and the number of speed control cameras will also be increased. Since public awareness among motorists is also important, efforts will be made in that regard. The notice boards on the sea bridge will be raised and placed in such a way that they are visible. These officials also said that the help of Save Life Foundation, a charitable organization, will be taken for zero road accidents. Based on the measures taken in the meeting held on Tuesday, a regulation will be prepared in the next 15 days.
