Black spots to be rectified

Addressing an event organised by International Road Federation, Anurag Jain, Secretary, Ministry of Road Transport & Highways stated that about 4,000 black spots have been rectified in the last three years. Nine thousand more black spots have been identified and the Ministry has set a target of March 2025 to rectify all black spots in the country. Stretches of about 500 metres on national highways where at least five accidents have taken place during three years, resulting in 10 fatalities, are designated as accident black spots. Road safety audit of all national NHs will be achieved soon. There is also plan to launch zero complaint for road maintenance, making all highways fully maintained by the authorities concerned.
