Sustainable urban transport in less motorised countries: Research and training, New Delhi, India
Road Safety and Urban Transport Planning
During its first years, VREF´s first Centre of Excellence — in New Delhi — has explored a range of transportation questions, from increased safety for pedestrians to developing traffic planning and policy making.

“Here at the Centre in New Delhi we have had significant influence, at both the national and local levels. We have been given a role in national planning. Now we are trying to get involved in all of the large cities in the country," says Dinesh Mohan, former Director of the CoE TRIPP: Research and Training in New Delhi.
