Delhi Police submits time-bound plan for traffic congestion
The Delhi Police has submitted a time-bound action plan in the Supreme Court to make the city traffic congestion free by 2020. According to an affidavit filed by the Delhi Police in the Supreme Court, out of 350 tasks in ‘A’ category corridors, 108 have already been completed.
A task force constituted by the Lieutenant Governor had identified 77 bottlenecks in the city and categorised them into three corridors — 28 highly congested (A category), 30 congested (B category), and 19 mildly congested (C category). The affidavit further laid out the plan which entails construction of foot over-bridges, underpasses and fixing road geometrics.
The court also directed all the civic authorities to extend cooperation to the Police in the implementation of the plan. The affidavit also mentions that a policy is being formulated to clear the impounded vehicles which are lying in various police stations in Delhi.
