Road transport ministry gears up to fix deadliest “black spots”

New Delhi: In order to make life safer on roads, Road transport ministry has decided to bring in necessary modifications in the Central Road Fund (CRF) norms for allocating certain portion of the fund for fixing 10 'black spots' in each state.

According to reports, Delhi will be the first city to receive benefit from this modification.

The national capital will get a share of Central Road Fund to fix its 10 "black spots" which claimed 84 lives in 2014.

These spots were identified by the Delhi Traffic Police and detailed plans to fix the deadly stretches are being prepared for quick implementation.

Other state governments are expected to come out with such lists this week.

Treating black spots with road engineering interventions has been identified as one of the priorities by the Union government to reduce road fatalities.
