Palghar. In connection with the death of industrialist Cyrus Mistry and another person in a road accident in Palghar, Maharashtra, the district administration has asked the highway authorities to conduct a road safety audit. Confirming the audit, Palghar District Magistrate Govind Bodke told PTI that a joint visit of highway officials and police has been planned on September 14 to find out technical glitches and suggest measures to mitigate them.
The District Magistrate said that the officials have been asked to put up prominent signboards on the black spots (accident prone parts) on the route. Palghar District Magistrate Govind Bodke said, ‘Rambler will be installed on the highway as a short-term measure. The curves will be inspected and measures like reduction of lanes will be discussed during the joint tour.
Officials of the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), in a meeting convened during the day, said that the Mumbai-Ahmedabad section was designed for a maximum speed of 80 kmph, but there was no risk of vehicular movement over the prescribed limit. The issue is a big problem. Former Tata Sons chairman Cyrus Mistry died in a road accident on Sunday.
