Admin needs to gear up to tackle pre-Iftar rush
Srinagar, Aug 1:Given the expected rush of thousands of vehicles which zoom past the City roads in the hours close to Iftaar, the travel could end up in a mess if the authorities fail to provide requisite assistance to the “staff-starved” Traffic police, and also put some route plans in place.
Observers said there needs to be an additional deployment of police to regulate traffic at places like Soura chowk, Hawal crossing, Nowhatta junction , and Karan Nagar intersection which connects to Tatoo Ground road.
On the other side Dalgate and Khayam crossings also need an additional deployment while Sonawar and Shiv Pora also need assistance in traffic regulation.
Towards the south City, as per the observers, there’s a desperate need of additional police deployment at Rambagh, Natipora and Hyderpora crossings.
*Oneway traffic be allowed on the Karan Nagar Tattoo Ground route and Khayam- Dalgate route
*For vehicles heading from City to Barzulla suburb, diversion be given via puncture towards right of Rambagh bridge which connects to old Barzulla
*Traffic driving down from Hyderpora be diverted to bypass via Post Office lane
*The Divisional Commissioner Dr Asgar Hassan Samoon should hold a meeting to facilitate additional deployment of police and also devise effective measures in consultation with Traffic Police and the civil administration
