The government on Friday said safety audit of 19,300-kilometre of national highways has been completed till December in the current fiscal.

During FY22, safety audit of 16,500 km of national highways was undertaken.

National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has been conducting safety audits on national highways at the planning, construction, operations, and maintenance stages, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways said in a statement.

NHAI has made third-party road safety audit at Detailed Project Report (DPR) stage mandatory for all the projects.

For all new projects, the DPR will be safety audited by a team of independent safety consultants, and the recommendations of the safety auditors will be taken into account during further stages of design.

Further, the safety review of the DPRs is undertaken by dedicated road safety officers at NHAI to ensure that all the necessary safety measures have been incorporated.

The audit was done by safety auditors specialised in safe roads engineering studies.
