Srinagar, April 12: A road network that will cater to women needs a comprehensive plan.
And, of course, a women-centric one.
The road network, launched in April 2016, has taken years to complete and has so far been a nightmare.
It has been plagued by road deaths, accidents, accidents and even deaths of its own making.
The first casualty of this road carnage was Kishore Yadav, a 42-year-old father of three who was driving in the morning when he hit a wall and hit his head on the concrete.
The accident was a wake-up call to the road authorities that a woman would be better off than a man for long journeys.
In a country where only a handful of women make up over half of the population, women drivers in India’s road networks face a number of challenges, such as a shortage of drivers and a lack of knowledge about the roads.
So what do the road planners need to do to make the road safer for women drivers?
The answer is simple: Make the roads more attractive to women.
This is one of the main reasons why women make a greater contribution to road infrastructure.
A woman-focused road network is better for both men and women, and also the environment.
According to the World Bank, road infrastructure is among the most polluting and expensive in the world.
It’s estimated that in India, as many as 90 per cent of the roads are filled with garbage, and about 40 per cent are leaking.
To combat pollution and pollution, road planners have to take into account the environment as well.
For example, the National Green Tribunal has set a target to reduce the air pollution levels in rural India by 30 per cent by 2020.
The goal of this ambitious project is to make women more comfortable with driving in urban India, where pollution is higher.
India also has a long way to go to address gender equality in the workplace, education, and healthcare, and to make roads safer for all.
There are women-friendly workplaces such as women-owned businesses, and companies like Tata Group are taking women-led initiatives like making their cars safer.
In short, the road network in India has to make its own way in terms of women-friendliness.
The Road Network in India by State: How to get started Here is a list of the states and union territories that have launched women-focused roads in the past few years.
Kerala, the largest state in India with 1.5 million inhabitants, has the most road network projects.
The Kerala Highway Authority launched a women and children-friendly road network between May and October 2017.
The roads were marked with posters showing young children and mothers with signs that read: “Moms and dads have to be in the driving seat.
We need a road safety system that allows them to take care of their children and care for the environment.”
In 2017, the state launched a road network for women and women-empowered drivers to help women gain confidence.
In 2019, the same year the state introduced the Road to Women programme, it announced that the women-driven road would be completed by the end of 2020.
Similarly, in 2019, it also launched a gender-balanced network of female-friendly roads, with a special focus on women-powered vehicles.
A list of all the road networks in India.

In 2016, the Karnataka Women Road Transport (KWRT) launched a new road network.
It was a joint venture between the government of Kerala and the state of Odisha.
It included more than 30 women-specific vehicles with a combined capacity of 15,000.
The KWRT also implemented a dedicated road for women-drivers.
