One-way traffic circulation plan in Karol Bagh from Monday: Police
New Delhi: Delhi Traffic Police will implement its one-way traffic circulation plan on trial basis on Padam Singh Road and Tank Road in central Delhi's Karol Bagh from Monday, officials said.
To ensure smooth vehicular movement, the scheme would be implemented gradually on four other roads of the area, Pyare Lal Road, Hardhyan Singh Road, Gurudwara Road, and Saraswati Marg, a senior traffic police official said.
The move comes in for providing seamless and smooth traffic movement and is being used to create a one-way loop system for comfortable movement of all modes of transport, the officer said.
Karol Bagh –a hub of commercial establishments having garments, jewellary, electronic items and car dealers –registers heavy footfall and vehicular movement throughout the day thereby leading to street parking of the vehicles on all the major roads of the area.
One way circulation plan of Karol Bagh area was approved by the Unified Traffic Transportation Infrastructure (Planning and Engineering) Centre (UTTIPEC) in April, 2010 and the trial run on these roads was also conducted for sometime but could not be continued thereafter, the traffic police said in its statement.
Now in a concerted effort by Delhi Traffic Police along with other civic agencies, one-way circulation plan on the six roads in Karol Bagh area is being revived with its implementation initially on Padam Singh Road and Tank road, the statement added.
Meeting with RWAs and MWAs of Karol Bagh area has been conducted and the finer points of circulation plan have been deliberated with them, as their co-operation is of utmost importance for the successful implementation of the one-way circulation scheme, the senior traffic police official said.
About 50 Delhi Traffic Police officers along with marshals from MCD would be deployed to man all the intersections of Tank road and Padam Singh Road to regulate the traffic, the official added.
