A harvested liver was rushed for transplantation from Bhopal airport to a hospital via a ‘green corridor’ formed in the city for the first time. “A distance of 12 kilometres was covered in barely 13 minutes to transport the organ for transplantation. More than 80 police officers helped in creating the green corridor,” Sameer Yadav, ASP, Bhopal told ANI.

‘Green corridors’ have manually operated street signals to avoid peak traffic for exigencies, mainly medical. They are now being frequently used to transport organs within and between cities.
