KUMASI MAYOR LAUNCHES KUMASI SUMMARY STATUS REPORT AND SPEED MANAGEMENT PLAN

Mayor of Kumasi, Hon. Sam Pyne has jointly launched the Kumasi Status Report and Speed Management Plan at the Lancaster Hotel in Kumasi on Tuesday 5th March, 2024.

The Kumasi Status Report outlines and provides a snapshot of the scenario of speeding in Kumasi and summarizes both outcomes and observational data. It also allows the understanding of the holistic picture of speeding on roads in Kumasi and sheds light on where interventions to mitigate the issue of speeding within the city should focus.

The Speed Action Plan is also a document which puts forth recommendations to alleviate the rate of speeding outlined in the Summary Statue report.

The event was organised in conjunction with Bloomberg Philanthropies Initiative for Global Road Safety, Vital strategies, John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, International Injury research Unit, World research Institute and the Building and Road Research Institute (BRRI).

Hon. Sam Pyne delivering his key note address indicated that the issue of road traffic fatalities and injuries remained a pressing global health and development concern, with each life lost in a crash being too many.
