TOD & Road Safety / Session 4 / Financing & Implementing Road Safety in TOD


This session is the fourth and final session in a four-part workshop series highlighting the importance of road safety, in Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) projects, through the Five-Step process and Safe System approach. This session talks about the last two stages of the TOD framework from a road safety perspective – how to Finance and Implement road safety measures in a TOD project. 

Financing of road safety measures in TOD require earmarking funds from the budget, but most importantly using innovative tools to ensure execution of safety strategies through development incentives that are offered to property owners and developers. Apart from that several other funding sources may be sourced through taxation, funds from state and federal levels or philanthropic organizations. Presentation on Haryana Vision Zero Road safety fund sheds light on such practices and how they can be used to fund road safety in TOD projects.

Implement of road safety in TOD requires addressing any gaps that may have been highlighted in the previous four stages. Along with that such high investment projects may require to be carried out through trials and phasing – as discussed through a case study of junction improvements near transit stations in Mumbai. Furthermore, monitoring and evaluations of outputs and outcomes may help in improving future implementation processes.
