Grontmij and Safe Crossings cooperate to create a sustainable road safety solution in Bangladesh
Grontmij, the third largest engineering consultancy firm in Europe, is assisting Safe Crossings to design a sustainable road safety solution that can be used in Bangladesh to save the lives of many people, particularly children and poor people.
The cooperation combines Safe Crossing’s knowledge of the local situation in Bangladesh with Grontmij’s extensive design and implementation expertise in road safety improvements in both Europe and Asia.
The first outcome of this cooperation will be the design of a ‘safe crossings solution’ for a high-risk crossing on the national highway of Bangladesh. The solution uses a combination of proven measures, that are both effective and low-cost, to reduce the number and severity of road crashes.
