As per the concession/contract agreement for construction of national highways, the safety/security norms are to be complied by the concessionaire/contractor on the project highway during the construction of National Highways. For this purpose, Government has made it mandatory to get the safety audit of all project highways done at all the stages including the construction stage through independent safety consultants. The safety consultants carry out independent safety audit of the project highway during the development/ construction/ maintenance stage as per the prescribed standards/guidelines of the Ministry/IRC. The recommendations of the independent safety consultant are acted upon by the concerned concessionaire/contractor for complying to any safety deficiency or for taking action to provide additional road safety measures, which is a continuous process.
