As this last issue of Trafficinfratech for the year 2019- 20 was getting closed, India went into a lockdown raising anxieties and uncertainties about both life and economy. Around the world, each country is putting up its own Covid19 battle; however, the fact remains that it is a collective global battle to be fought with patience and hope.

In this issue, the focus has been to show how the county is making huge investment in infrastructure and offering opportunities for international participation. Developing traffic and transport Infrastructure, leveraging technology and strengthening multimodal transportation have been among the top priorities. It is foreseen that as and when the country limps back to near or partial normalcy, there would be a renewed focus on Infrastructure with restarting of highway construction. Yes, the government has a huge task in front: solving transporters’ issues, tolling operations and above all giving security to the migrant workers.

In this period of national and personal crisis, one factor which is affected or controlled is mobility of people and goods. Many of the automobile manufacturers are putting into use their spare capacity to manufacture equipment and solutions required to treat the corona patients; many ITS solution providers or smart city technology providers are rolling out smart solutions that can help track patients, contain spread, monitor quarantined people, etc. The police could be helped with AI based solutions & ANPR for restricting traffic, and detecting violation during lockout period.

We may not be very sure about how soon life will be back to normal, but we are sure, all citizens and all industries/sectors should work along with our government to reduce the impact of the crisis.
