TOD & Road Safety / Session 1


This workshop is first in a four-part series highlighting the importance of road safety, in Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) projects, through the Five-Step process and Safe System approach.

This session introduces the need for road safety in high density areas, such as a TOD, including the requirement for safe access to mass transit stations using the principles of Safe System. This invitation-only session also includes a virtual interactive ‘role-playing’ activity. This engaging interaction will help in identifying plausible situations, and the role of different stakeholders, in determining safe access to a station — based on WRI India’s Safe Access to Mass Transit toolkit.
