Traffic restrictions, diversions from Friday
FOR SMOOTH EID SHOPPING
Srinagar, Nov 1: In a bid to streamline traffic ahead of Eid-Ul-Azha when thousands of vehicles are expected to throng the City centre areas, the police authorities have devised “elaborate arrangements to discourage traffic gridlocks along Residency Road and MA Road stretches, which otherwise puts the common man to a lot of inconvenience as the whole area gets converted into a shopper’s paradise.” The arrangements will be in place on Nov 4, 5 and 6.
And, to avoid any “eleventh hour controversy” the arrangements have been made after taking stakeholders including traders and transporters into confidence. Officials said it was for the first time that the Traffic police took such an initiative for evolving the arrangements.
