Bangladesh has a large and growing road safety problem. At least 20,000 people die every year on the roads and due to increasing traffic these numbers are rising fast.
In 2014 we will run a pilot of the Safe Crossings program at 3 black spots across the N2 highway between Dhaka and Sylhet. At the selected locations the N2 highway crosses the villages Nil Kuthi, Nama Para and Kunder Para which results in many accidents. This is mainly due to the high speed of buses and trucks crossing these village.
Our program in Bangladesh will be implemented by CIPRB.
