Say NO to violation on road
The Government of Pakistan (GoP) is implementing the project in cooperation with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Department for International Development of the United Kingdom, whereas NTU International is the implementation consultant for the Road Safety Component.
The Road Safety Component of TA-8990 PAK: Enabling Economic Corridors through Sustainable Transport Sector Development project is structured to reflect the five road safety action 'pillars' set out in United Nations (UN) Decade for Road Safety Action 2011-2020. This structure supports the implementation of evidenced based, results focused road safety actions within the globally endorsed Safe System Approach. The pillars are:
The TA Team will support the Government of Pakistan to further improve the safety of its road network through a holistic set of measures addressing (i) road safety management systems, (ii) road user behavior, (iii) infrastructure improvements, (iv) vehicle improvements, and (iv) post-crash response. An interministerial body or lead road safety agency will be established to coordinate various activities to improve road safety and supported in the development of a national road safety strategy and action plan, informed by a crash database.
Awareness raising campaigns and training of enforcement officials will be conducted. The TA Team will support the Ministry of Communication (MoC) to produce new Road Safety Standards Guidelines for all classes of roads and pilot these standards in at least three locations. The TA Team will support the MOC to develop National guidelines on vehicle and driver licenses and post-crash response.
All components under this TA are being undertaken in full consultation with the Road Safety Working Group chaired by the Ministry of Communications and in close collaboration with key agencies at National, Provincial and Territory levels, academics and civil society partners. The approach aims to foster ownership and ensure benefits are sustained and enhanced over time.
The TA Team will support the MoC to ensure that a national road safety program is implemented by 2020. More specifically, the firm will support Government of Pakistan to conduct the following activities presented in the figure above and detailed below, which are to be considered as minimum requirements.
