Crossing Continents

Fixing India's Car Crash Capital

Episode 9 Fixing India's Car Crash Capital



India has some of the world's most dangerous roads, with almost 150,000 dying in accidents last year - and the worst location is the booming city of Mumbai. Neal Razzell meets some of the people who are doing what they can to prevent road deaths, including the vegetable seller who fills potholes in his spare time after his son died in one, and a neurosurgeon whose experience treating victims has led him to try to build trauma centres along one of the worst roads. Meanwhile, the country is in the midst of a historic road-building push. By 2020, Prime Minister Modi wants to pave a distance greater than the circumference of the earth. Last in the series.
