With the spread of the covid-19 disease, the country has been on a complete lockdown for the second time to stop the spread of the disease any further. Now, as the spread is coming under control, the government has allowed partial lockdown in the country.
PLAN TO DEAL WITH TRAFFIC IN DELHI-
The lockdown was carried out to stop the spread of the covid-19 disease, but it also gave the government time to think of measures to solve the ongoing issues in the country.
Traffic jams are one of the major problems in the country. Delhi, the capital city, has one of the worst traffics in the country. And one of the main reasons for the traffic in Delhi is because of the different types of vehicles running on the roads. We see all kinds of vehicles including cars, buses, trucks, auto-rickshaws on the road. But apart from this, cyclists and pedestrians are also part of this.
This creates a difference in the speed of the vehicles running together and creates traffic.
SEPARATE PASSAGE FOR PEDESTRIANS-
To deal with the traffic in Delhi, one of the measures that the Delhi government has thought of is creating a separate passage for pedestrians.
- The Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Marg in central Delhi will now be converted into a heritage corridor.
- This design was created by the Public Work Department (PWD).
- According to the plan, this passage will be for all pedestrians and non-motorized vehicles.
AIM OF THE PLAN-
- The aim of creating the passage is to ease the traffic in central Delhi, provide mobility, and reduce contestability on the roads.
- Parking facilities will be provided according to the new plan, with pick and drop points.
- Many times, it is seen that loading and unloading take place along the road edges which slows down the vehicles, and this will be eliminated according to the plan made by the PWD in Delhi.
