MSRDC, VW & SaveLIFE launch Vision Zero Initiative

The launch ceremony

With an aim of reducing road crash deaths and make the Old Mumbai-Pune Highway (NH48) safe for road users, the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation, Volkswagen Group India and SaveLIFE Foundation, officially launched the Vision Zero Initiative on August 9. 
 
The partnership aims to create a scalable and replicable model for road safety across the highways. This is in line with the Government’s commitment to reduce road crash deaths by 50 per cent under the Brasilia Declaration.
 
While national highways constitute just two per cent of the total road network in India, they account for 35 per cent of total road crash deaths, translating to over 145 road crash deaths every day.
 
The Maharashtra Government taking initiative to tackle this pandemic, entered into a partnership with SaveLIFE Foundation and Volkswagen Group India through the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation, Maharashtra Police and the Public Health Department. The Maharashtra Chief Minister had announced the partnership as part of the Mahaparivartan Programme in February. August 9 marked the official launch of the initiative. 
 
Mr Eknath Shinde, PWD Minister of Maharashtra, said “Safety of people on the road is a priority for us. I want to make Maharashtra a model for other states to follow, with best case practices in road safety. Road crash deaths are preventable, and I am very hopeful about the Vision Zero Initiative that aims to bring down the deaths on NH48 to near zero.”
 
Elaborating on the partnership, Mr. Gurpratap Boparai, Managing Director, Volkswagen Group India added, “Safety is integral to our vision of sustainable mobility. We, at Volkswagen Group India, not only want to build safest cars, but through Vision Zero want to work towards a safer eco-system for commuters against the ills of road incidents and injuries”.
