Appreciation And Applauds
In 2022, Hyderabad Traffic Police has facilitated organ transport 21 times.
In May 2022, the Hyderabad traffic police coordinated with Cyberabad traffic police to create a green corridor from Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Shamshabad (Telangana) to KIMS Hospital Begumpet, Hyderabad
The ambulance, which left the airport at 07:28 AM, reached the hospital at 07:55 AM, thus covering a distance of 35 km in 27 minutes.
Green corridors have saved many lives in different parts of the country. In January 2022, a green corridor built in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, saved a patient’s life. For this, the ambulance covered a distance of 23 km in 15 minutes
It saved another patient’s life by transporting a brain-dead patient’s kidney.
In Nasik, Maharashtra green corridor created by the police helped the organs reach their destination in 15 minutes, and two people got a new life.
What Is Green Corridor
A green corridor is a system that transports vital organs from one place to another in less time.
In this system, the traffic departments of two areas cooperate to create a particular route where all the traffic signals are turned green.
This way, about 60 to 70 per cent of the time is saved by providing the transporting vehicle with a smooth passage.
A green corridor offers a better chance of saving lives since the sooner an organ is transplanted, the higher the chances of success.
