Delhi Traffic Signals to soon indicate Speed Limits and Timer Displays

Traffic signals in Delhi will soon have electronic signages indicating speed limits along with timer displays for smooth and effective traffic management as Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena directed officials to install these devices at all traffic intersections across the city.


Saxena issued these directions during a meeting to review traffic management in the city wherein he also directed officials for strict enforcement of lane discipline by heavy motor vehicles (HMVs). It said lane enforcement exercise was all the more relevant and important on the highways where trucks were allowed during late nights and early mornings.


He stressed that minimal manual interventions for enforcement will not only ensure less hassles to commuters and prevent corruption, but will also mitigate the problem of traffic pile-up at sites where commuters are stopped indiscriminately for inspection and issuing challans.


With regards to the issues of road engineering proposals pending with various road owning agencies in the city, including PWDMCD and NDMC, among others, the L-G assured of intervention to get the issues resolved at the earliest. He also underlined the importance of seamless traffic flow in the city with least manual interventions for enforcement and challans.


A statement from the Raj Niwas — L-G's secretariat said, “It was suggested that the information in this regard, listing the names and contact numbers of traffic personnel deployed, could be posted on the traffic portal of Delhi Police. The L-G also underlined the importance of similarly posting such details of the beat staff on duty for easy access of the people of the city.”
