Trials underway for formulating new traffic plan: SSP

Friday, 09 August 2019 | PNS | DEHRADUN

After the trials done by the Dehradun district police on Wednesday and route diversion plans set up on experimental basis, citizens on Thursday appeared to have avoided using Darshan Lal Chowk and Clock Tower.

This however, resulted in heavy traffic flow in other parts of the city. Many citizens have also complained that people are not being informed in advance about the diversion plan, because of which they are facing traffic related issues.

Dehradun Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Arun Mohan Joshi said, “These trials are being done so that we can study the cause of traffic congestions and ascertain the steps that can be taken for the improvement of traffic management. Whether we will implement the new plan or not can only be said after our study is concluded. This might take more than a month. We agree that initially it can cause problems for citizens but it is ultimately for them.

 In the current infrastructure it is difficult to make a good traffic plan. If it is to be done properly we will have to restructure everything. As that is not possible we are trying to formulate the best possible traffic plan in the city.”

When asked about the complaints raised by citizens of not being informed in advance, he said “If we had informed them in advance about the diversion plan people would likely avoided the route. Thats way we can hardly get genuine report. This is not a permanent plan; it is there on trial basis.”
