If there is an accident due to a bad road, the officials will be responsible, what is the government’s plan!

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will hold the officials responsible in case of any fatal or serious accident due to the condition of the road. The NHAI in a circular said that it has taken serious note of the negligent engineering work of the NHAI officials involved in the certificate issuance process. The carelessness or lack of attention shown in the construction of these roads

In this circular, it has been said that safety related works like road marking, road signs, crash barrier are being issued by keeping the certificate in the punch list. This compromises the safety of passengers and tarnishes the reputation of NHAI in case of accidents/fatalities. It may be mentioned here that the pending works are kept under a category, which is called punch list.

Inspection required before issuance of certificate
NHAI said that it should be ensured that all road safety related tasks are completed before issuing the certificate. Regional Officer/Head of Project/Independent Engineer will be held responsible if any serious or fatal road accident occurs due to very poor quality of engineering work.

Caution will be shown regarding punch list
The authority has said that the punch list should include only those works which are not related to road safety. The tasks on this list should be completed within 30 days. It may be mentioned here that a few days ago, Union Minister Gadkari had said that error in the DPR prepared by the consultant was the main cause of the disaster.
