Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot inaugurated the 'tactical urbanism trials' to improve road safety. While speaking to reporters after the inauguration of tactical urbanism trials at Rajghat on Tuesday, Gahlot said, "We have taken 20 locations into the consideration. These locations have a case of fatal accidents. When pedestrians, cyclists cross the road, they feel scared. So, we had several meetings on this. This is a trial process. If it goes well, we will launch it at 20 different locations in Delhi."

"The aim of this initiative is to improve road safety. Such initiatives will reduce the number of fatal accidents in the national capital," added the minister. He said that Tactical Urbanism (TU) trials are temporary, quick and relatively low-cost interventions, which test out urban design, transportation planning and infrastructural changes for improving road safety.

Gahlot also interacted with auto drivers and bikers and requested them to turn off their vehicles when the traffic signal turns red as part of the Delhi government's "Red light on, Gadi off" campaign to reduce pollution in the national capital. (ANI)
