New traffic control system in Chamba: The Tribune India
Chamba, December 30
To make traffic control in the city of Chamba more efficient, the intelligent traffic management system (ITMS)
is being installed at a cost of Rs 10 lakh.
Kangra Lok Sabha MP Kishan Kapoor said this while chairing a district-level road safety committee meeting here today. He said ITMS was being set up to better organize traffic management in Chamba.
The command center would not only improve traffic control, but also help monitor the city. For this, calls for tenders would be launched soon, he said.
MPs Vikram Jaryal, Pawan Nayyar and Jia Lal Kapoor, and the chairman of the district agricultural produce market committee, DS Thakur, attended the meeting.
Kapoor has asked authorities that major roads in the district be marked with pedestrian crossings and that road signs be installed as well. He urged people to follow the traffic rules.
The deputy also instructed the SDMs, deputy directors (Education) and the regional transport manager to organize road safety awareness programs among schoolchildren.
Deputy Commissioner DC Rana said officials from the Department of Public Works (PWD) and the National Highways Authority of India have been urged to speed up the black spot rectification work.
PWD chief engineer Diwakar Pathania said 858 black spots had been identified on various roads in the district, of which 644 had been repaired. The NHAI had repaired 19 blackheads.
