DA finalizing traffic plan: DC

ITANAGAR, Jan 15: Capital Complex Deputy Commissioner Prince Dhawan has informed that the district administration along with various stakeholders is finalizing traffic plan for the capital roads.
Inaugurating the All Arunachal Pradesh Tours and Travel Associations’ (AAPTTA) Sumo (shared taxi) ticket booking counter at the APST bus stand in Ganga on Monday, the DC requested all the stakeholders to follow proper traffic guidelines issued from time to time to ease the congestion in the roads of the capital.
The plan includes barricading roads to segregate the lanes, and u-turns at specific locations, such as near Zero Point, Gompa Mandir and Kingcup School.
Right turns would be restricted to the Bank Tinali tri-junction, the civil secretariat, the old Sumo counter near Ganga Market, and Hanuman Mandir at Ganga.
Additional arrangements include one-way traffic in various sector roads, no parking zones, one-lane parking zones, and operationalization of towing vehicles.
He requested all the stakeholders to cooperate with the administration’s endeavour to ease traffic congestion.
He thanked the AAPTTA for its continued support to the administration by obeying traffic regulations and defying bandh calls.
The DC expressed hope that the new ticket booking counter would help passengers by bringing both buses and light vehicles under the same roof.
The DC appealed to the tour operators to maintain cleanliness in the area, and urged the APST and private bus operators to cooperate with the operationalization of the Inter State Bus Terminal (ISBT) by shifting their facilities to the ISBT in Lekhi.
Station Superintendent, Tuter Dulom appealed to the tour operators to cooperate with his department in maintaining the sanctity of ‘no tobacco zone’ in the APST campus.
Congratulating the AAPTTA, CMEO Olik Taring extended the support of the Itanagar Municipal Council in smooth operation of business activities in the Capital Complex. (DIPRO)
