The Jaipur traffic police are planning to develop green corridors for ambulances in the city. The step has been taken to ensure patients reach hospitals on time without getting stuck in busy roads.
The project cost is Rs 3.5 lakh. These green corridors will be managed with a mobile application. The traffic control room will be linked with a mobile application ‘Golden Hours’. This application will help the traffic control room operator to have the complete details of ambulances movement in the city.
According to the police, the city has around 200 private and government hospitals. The driver of the ambulance will have to fill in the details of the hospital where he is taking the patient. If stuck in a traffic jam, the driver can press the alert button on the app. After the traffic control room receives the information, the traffic police will navigate the ambulance, clearing out the route with the help of traffic police on duty.
The ambulance and the hospital administration will have to first register on the mobile application ‘Golden Hours’. The administration of the traffic police will also ensure that the ambulance driver don’t misuse the service.
