Ludhiana, December 31
Assistant Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Gurdev Singh has taken a New Year resolution to further improve the traffic situation in the industrial hub. The ACP, who had taken a lot of initiatives in this regard, now, pledges to do more for the city.
In a statement issued, Gurdev said due to the ongoing development projects in the city such as elevated road, Malhar road beautification, Pakhowal road RUB and widening of old bridge over Sidhwan canal, traffic movement at these spots had been slowed down but from January 1, he has made a special diversion plan at these places to avoid traffic jams.
The ACP said the traffic police had identified 91 black spots in the city which would be converted to white spots in the coming days by making technical reforms.
The ACP said in most of the road accidents, pedestrians and cyclists were killed. Now, to prevent such accidents, a special campaign has been started in which reflective tapes would be put on cycles and speed radars would be installed at black spots.
The traffic police have also planned special seminars for auto-rickshaw drivers and schoolchildren to make them aware of the traffic rules. The ACP said they were also planning to provide a separate lane to vehicles such as ambulances and police and school vehicles.
Notably, the ACP has also received the Police Medal for Meritorious Services and the Chief Minister Medal for Outstanding Devotion to Duty for his services in managing traffic in the city. He has also worked tirelessly during the pandemic-induced lockdown to serve food to the needy and implement the Covid-19 guidelines.
