Nizamabad: The officials of National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) have prepared plans to implement `Jeevan Bachao’ programme on NH-44 in Nizamabad district as a pilot project in the state. According to the scheme, those involved in road accidents on National Highways would be shifted to corporate hospitals or multi-specialty hospitals and treatment would be given to them. The lives of patients who require blood or emergency treatment can be saved by shifting them immediately to hospitals. Special ambulances equipped with emergency medical equipment would be stationed at various accident prone places adjacent to National Highways. As soon as the NHAI personnel receive complaints about the accidents, they rush to the spot and shift the victims to hospitals. The project has already been implemented at various places in other states. However, in AP it is implemented on NH-44 as a pilot project.
Commencing from Baswapur village in Bikhnoor mandal, the NH runs about 160 kms up to Pochampadu village in Balkonda mandal within the district. The NH-44 in the district is a part of Nagpur-Bangalore highway. The highway connects Adilabad, Medak, Hyderabad and other towns in AP and other cities in Maharashtra. There are several towns – Bikhnoor, Kamareddy, Sadasivpet, Dichpally, Jakhranpalli, Armoor and Balkonda – on NH-44 within Nizamabad district.
In the year 2012, more than 80 persons died and 358 sustained injuries in 252 road accidents on highways in the district due to non-availability of immediate treatment. Last year, 85 persons died as they could not get required blood and other treatment after the accidents.
Within the district the NHAI officials have identified 21 accident prone zones and the ambulances would be kept near these zones. Argul, Perkit Cross Raods in Armoor mandal, Chandrayanpalli, Jakhranpalli are some among the 21 accident prone zones.
