The heart-shaped traffic lights were set up in a joint effort of Manipal Hospitals, Bengaluru Traffic Police (BTP), and Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to provide quick access to first aid or medical help in case of cardiac emergencies.

A post in the Twitter handle of the hospital chain read, “On the occasion of #WorldHeartDay, Manipal Hospitals installed innovations to encourage Bangalore to be a ‘heart smart city’. These included the red signal being in the shape of a heart, audio messages spreading awareness on heart health, and QR codes to access emergency services easily instead of dialing a number to call for it. Here are some snaps of the same. (Sic)

To encourage Bengaluru to become a “heart smart city,” these traffic lights on the city’s roads have taken on the shape of a heart. According to Manipal Hospitals, the heart-shaped traffic lights were installed on World Heart Day to “encourage Bangalore to be a ‘heart smart city’.” Over 20 locations in the city have received the traffic lights

Along with these newly installed lights, the management at Manipal Hospitals has set up QR codes near traffic signals. When scanned, these codes will connect an affected person to an emergency number and will be redirected to ambulance services at a single click. The idea is to provide help at the click of a button during emergencies when one is unable to call and check at several places for medical help.
