The road infrastructure that we are putting in place with our partners will make it possible to warn of accident-prone areas, organize traffic and control the overall rate of crime and dangerousness. With continued monitoring and maintenance, we are confident that this project will bring great benefits to RNAIPL workers, employees of other companies, and members of the public. »

According to the press release, the initiative is part of the plant’s broader rural development program which includes waste reduction and recycling, groundwater management and environmental and habitat protection. .

“The Oragadam Industrial Corridor is home to various manufacturing plants, and the movement of local villagers and the constant transit of vehicles carrying heavy equipment make it an area that must prioritize safety. The infrastructure project directly addresses a range of serious issues, from crime, to traffic, to accident safety, to make the Village Corridor comprehensively safer for everyone” , said Biju Balendran, managing director and CEO of Renault Nissan Automotive India Pvt Ltd.

The new project will improve security with CCTV cameras to help monitor crime; traffic lights at intersections; temporary roundabouts and barricades to control traffic congestion on roads and national highways (especially near Oragadam SIPCOT); flashing high beams on the separators to indicate the crossing points of the road to pedestrians; solar flashers to warn motorists on parts of highways undergoing repairs and the seeding of saplings along the sides of the road, the statement said.
