The centres, according to those in the know of the development, will be operational by December 2016. Sanjay Bandopadhyay, CEO, NATRiP, at a seminar on ‘Road safety-Time for action’ jointly organised by MoRTH and International Road Federation (IRF) as part of National Road Safety Week is known to have said that the centres will be ready by the year end. The infotronics laboratory and crash testing labs will be operational by June this year, and the high-speed testing track will come up in two years. Equipped to carry out safety tests, including frontal and side crash test for vehicles, the centres will be on par with similar such centres in other parts of the world.
