Road and Vehicle Safety

Since developing reflective materials more than 80 years ago, 3M has been dedicated to enhancing traffic safety around the world. As a member of the following government committees for the last two decades, namely: Indian Roads Congress (IRC), H1 committee (Road Safety, Transport Planning and Traffic Engineering committee), H7 committee (Road Safety and Design), H8 committee (Urban Roads), H10 committee (Hill and Tunnel Roads) and International Road Federation (IRF) – India chapter, our work encompasses partnering with them to standardise road signage and furniture on major Indian Highways and urban roads.

One of 3M India’s prestigious projects was the installation of Road safety signages and road furniture that enhanced visibility and traffic safety on the upgraded 656 km of NH8 in Gujarat. Our traffic safety solutions were also installed along the second longest bridge, Sonepur Digha. That legacy continues today with our mission to help every driver, passenger, and pedestrian arrive home safely through smarter roadway infrastructure.
