  • Supported by Indus Motors.

Project objectives
Project Objectives

  • To Quantify and assess severity Of RTA’s

  • Assess pattern & behavior of accidents on Major Arterials

  • Presentation of collected data on GIS

  • Identification of Major causes of accidents

  • Detailed analysis and improvement of Black Spots


  • Collection of data from five hospitals

    • JPMC

    • Civil Hospital

    • Abbasi Shaheed Hospital

    • Liaquat National Hospital &

    • Aga Khan Hospital

  • By 30 Research Assistants 24x7

  • All data is collected & Analyzed

  • We are trying to bring some more hospitals in our cycle

Project progress
Project Progress

  • 17600 cases have been registered in seven months ( from Sep 06 to March 07)

  • Data of last Seven months has been collected & analyzed using SPSS

  • Major causes of accident have been categorized

  • Many Black Spots have been identified & analyzed

  • We are working on presentation of data on GIS

Data analysis september 06 to march 07
DATA ANALYSIS (September 06 to March 07)

Bridges, Flyovers & Underpasses

About 865 cases form different bridges have been reported in six months from September 06 to February 07.

Black spot analysis
Black Spot Analysis

  • The location where the number of accidents are high is termed as black spot

  • Besides over speeding and overtaking, other factors are:

  • Absence of Median

  • Sand Loading Activity

  • Shoulder improvement

M a jinnah road
M.A. Jinnah Road

  • 1165 cases were reported from Sep 06 to March 07

  • M.A. Jinnah road was analyzed in different sections

    • Numaish Intersection

    • Jama Cloth Intersection

Numaish intersection

  • Numaish Intersection is a high-risk zone for pedestrians

  • Vehicular accidents were reported because of wrong way driving


  • Location of pedestrian bridge & absence of fencing

  • Wrong way driving practice through Lines Area

Jama cloth intersection
Jama Cloth Intersection

  • Right of way for left turn through Phool Wali Gali was provided without changing the geometry of Intersection

  • Inadequate provision of pedestrian refuge and bus stop, while there is huge pedestrian flow due to market
