A city focus on road safety in Morocco

Back to news

Building on from rigorous planning and a successful mini workshop held in the middle of the year, October saw the official launch ceremony and first full session workshop of the Moroccan project, ‘Mohammedia, a Model City for the Protection of Road Users’, a joint collaboration between two GRSP programmes, GRSI-2 and EU MENA.

The successful launch was held under the aegis of the Wilaya of Casablanca and the Mohammedia Prefecture in the presence of Mohammedia Governor Mrs. Fouzia Imensar. Both the launch and the following workshop were supported by the GRSI funding partners, Michelin, Renault, Shell, Total and Toyota, the EU MENA project, as well as local corporate and civil society partners.

The Advisory Committee and four Technical Working Commissions have since finalized work plans, budgets are submitted and implementations are scheduled with a five point black spot improvement programme set to lead the push ahead of educational and enforcement initiatives.
