Lane system back, 400 cops brought in to man adherence

Lane driving has been reintroduced in the city


Shivani Chaturvedi | November 18, 2010

Lane driving's back in the city after a short recall following the Commonwealth Games. Traffic is expected to congeal on the 10 dedicated corridors for laning - Tilak Marg to Delhi gate, Lodi road, Prithviraj road, Sardar Patel Marg, Naraina to Ashram, IIT to Safdarjung (Aurobindo Marg), Bhishma Pitamah Marg, August Kranti Marg, Nelson Mandela marg, Outer circle of Connaught Place and Apollo to Nila GUmbad on Mathura Road.

This time, 400 traffic personnel will man the streets for lane-rule violation and keep order on these roads.

“There will be zero tolerance towards traffic violations on these lanes,” said joint commissioner of police, (traffic), Satyendra Garg.

Bollards have been put on the lanes and cops have been deployed to regulate bus transit as there is more congestion near bus stops. Buses and heavy vehicles will operate on the left lane, slow moving vehicles on middle lane and fast moving on right lane.

No parking will be allowed in these corridors, plus, all intersections will be banned. Each corridor will have one crane.

Further, 50 motorbikes will be provided to men in uniform. They will carry out patrolling and prosecute traffic violators. Once successful the model will be implemented in other areas too, added Garg.
