As part of the efforts to decongest traffic in the town areas, one-way system would be introduced in three stretches, said Senior Superintendent of Police (Traffic), Bhairon Singh Gurjar, IPS, here on Monday.
Vehicles would be allowed to ply from sea shore to Anna Salai on Vysial Street. One-way system would be followed in Vellala Street, allowing vehicle movement from Anna Salai to sea shore, he told reporters.
The full stretch of Nehru Street, beginning from Raja Theatre Junction to seashore, has been made one-way. Currently, one-way system is followed in the stretch from Raja Theatre to Traffic (SP) office.
The SSP (Traffic) said restrictions on parking would be introduced on Nehru Street. Vehicles would be allowed to park only in the north side in the stretch from Traffic SP office to the beach.
The new restrictions would come into effect from Tuesday, Gurjar added.
Even as the new traffic plans were being implemented, a crucial stretch on Ambur Salai, near the BSNL office, was being dug up as there were trenches on the middle of the road. The traffic is being diverted in the stretch.
In the past, plans for decongesting traffic undertaken by the police had gone haywire due to the relaying of drinking water pipeline, for which the roads were dug up.
