Pilgrim Safety Initiative Ensuring a Secure Journey
The Safe Zone project is a collaborative initiative between the Kerala Motor Vehicle Department and the Kerala Road Safety Authority, dedicated to enhancing the safety of pilgrims traveling to Sabarimala. Pilgrims will benefit from the services provided by the Safe Zone, covering a 400-kilometer area throughout the pilgrimage season. The primary objective is to ensure a secure and smooth pilgrimage experience.
To disseminate information about the Safe Zone project, concise articles are distributed in six languages among Guruswamis (pilgrims) and drivers at major checkpoints, toll booths, and edathaavalams. Additionally, announcements are made in Malayalam, English, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, and Telugu within Safe Zone areas, patrolling vehicles, and railway stations.
The Safe Zone project operates with a central control office at Elavunkal and two sub-divisions at Erumeli and Kuttikkanam. Twenty-four squads are on duty 24 hours a day in Elavunkal, Kuttikkanam, and Erumeli. With an estimated one crore small and large vehicles expected on the pilgrimage route, approximately four lakh kilometers of patrolling will be conducted. In case of emergencies, ambulance services from the health department and the police will be deployed for swift rescue operations and to transport the injured to hospitals promptly.
To prevent traffic congestion, vehicles experiencing issues will be promptly moved aside and repaired free of charge. A Mobile Unit for tire puncture and repair operates at Elavunkal, catering to vehicles weighing up to 40 tonnes. Additionally, 90 mechanical teams from 35 different automakers are actively engaged in providing assistance.
