considered from an infrastructure perspective, particularly:
- Technology of road surfaces: striking a balance between cost and safety, comparative analysis of bitumen and concrete from safety parameters
- Design, standards, maintenance contracts, auditing
- Legal and institutional framework for road safety
UN General Assembly has passed a resolution proclaiming a Decade of Action
for Road Safety 2011-2020, which aims to save lives by halting the increasing
trends in road traffic deaths and injuries world-wide.
Mr. Sundar will be the Conference Chair of the 4th National India Roads Conference 2011.

Our conference will make efforts to address questions that have emerged in road safety;
§ What methods is the government adopting to reduce road accidents?
Agencies like NHTSA in
The 57th WHO Assembly recommended to member states
to explore the possibilities to increase funding for road safety, including
through the creation of a fund. How should
§ The Committee on Infrastructure had decided that one per cent of the cess accruing to the National highways should be employed to create a National Road Safety Fund. How will the funds be utilised? Is one per cent a good enough amount to address safety requirements completely?
§ What quantum of funds would be required for the Road Safety Act to be implemented for engineering, legal, maintenance and awareness purposes?
§ Are our BOT contracts cutting safety corners? What elements would you bring into our contracts to ensure that our accident rate goes down below the current 14 per 10,000?
Are we using the most effective road designs for
our country? What are they? How are they uniquely
§ Do we have risk analysis and assessment of safety impacts mechanisms? What are such mechanisms we should be using?
§ What opportunities are available and emerging in road safety?
Our conference is headed by a Conference Chair, an eminent personality connected with the policymaking sphere relating to the industry. The Chair, along with Session Chairs, leads and summarizes the conference’s key points, and makes recommendations to policymakers and the industry.
ASAPP Conferences believes that interactivity at conferences results in better spread of understanding ground issues as well as in involving our delegates in discussions in regards to operations, technology and policy. Such interactivity also helps in evolving critical issues and taking them further in the form of recommendations. Consequently, the conference is replete with panel discussions, often involving delegate participation, and exhaustive Q&A sessions.
A typical session opens with the Session Chair’s lengthy introduction to the session’s main subject. This is followed by related addresses by the panelists in that session, a panel discussion, and Q&A. The session concludes with a comprehensive summary by the Session Chair.
Our typical conference includes two coffee breaks and a lunch break during the day, allowing plenty of time for business and professional networking opportunities among attendees.
