Revised traffic plan to be implemented during Smart City work
One-way system on select city roads discontinued from Tuesday
After the four-day trial of one-way system as part of a new traffic plan in Dehradun, the same was discontinued on Tuesday. However the deputy inspector general/Dehradun senior superintendent of police Arun Mohan Joshi said that a revised traffic plan will be implemented later when execution of works for the Smart City project begins.
According to Joshi, “The traffic plan will be revised after reviewing the issues that were faced during the days of the trial. The motive of the trial was to study the plan efficiently so that necessary improvements can be made to make it more proficient. The revised plan will be implemented by police when the Smart City works begin in Dehradun. The route from Clock Tower to Dilaram Chowk would be dug out during the Smart City work so by then we’ll have to put the revised traffic plan in action.”
He further said that though implementation of the traffic plan was challenging, it was not that troublesome for all the road users. The maximum additional distance one had to cover was 900 metres. Another aspect witnessed during the trial was that at times, vehicle users wanting to avoid the roads on which the one-way system was implemented, ended up congesting other parts of the city, he added.
It is pertinent to mention here that the trial conducted by Dehradun police has elicited a mixed response from commuters. Some members of the business fraternity especially on Rajpur Road and Paltan Bazaar had also objected to the traffic plan stating that it had affected their business negatively. However, some citizens had opined that barring a few hiccups, they did not face any major problem during the trial of the traffic plan.
