BHUBANESWAR: The Commissionerate Police will implement electronic-challan machines to check rising traffic offence in the Twin City. A proposal to buy nearly 100 such machines, approved by Police Commissioner RP Sharma, will be sent to the State Government for final approval.
“Apart from streamlining the challan issuing process, the system will help us keep a track on repeat offenders,” said Sharma.
In the wake of rising traffic problems in the two cities, the Police Commissioner held a meeting with officials of National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation here on Monday. Several patches in the city, where roads are in a deplorable condition, have been identified and the authority concerned has been asked to expedite the repair work. Widening of roads at CRP, Fire Station, Iskcon Temple and Acharya Vihar square was also discussed. The pavements along NH-5 need to be constructed immediately and maintained properly, said Sharma.
To address the parking issues, an area at CRP Square has been identified to be developed.
Among others, Additional CP Santosh Bala and DCP Traffic, Amrita Das were present at the meet.
