KOCHI: In a bid to ease the traffic snarl ups in eastern Kochi, a new traffic arrangement will be implemented at Kakkanad signal junction and the Civil Station area.

District Collector K Muhammed Y Safirulla who also heads the Traffic Regulatory Committee, initiated a meeting after the traffic snarl ups in the area became a threat to the public. Political parties, along with the public, have been staging protests against the police's traffic regulation which resulted in jams on the Seaport-Airport road.

The new arrangement approved by the Traffic Regulatory Committee will be introduced on an experimental basis for two weeks from Saturday. The new arrangement has been devised giving prominence to traffic movements along the Seaport-Airport road.

As per the plan, vehicles coming from the Vazhakala side will not be allowed to cross over and should instead take a free left to reach the district panchayat before proceeding to Infopark and Pallikkara sides.

However, vehicles coming from the Infopark side and proceeding to Ernakulam can cross the signal junction. The vehicles in the other three directions should proceed according to the signal lights.
"With this coming into effect, the traffic in front of the district panchayat will be made one way. Only the vehicles proceeding to the Infopark side can enter the road," said the Collector in a statement issued on Monday.
