PUDUCHERRY: A comprehensive mobility plan is being prepared to find short-term solutions to ease overcome traffic congestion, said Chief Minister N Rangasamy.

The work has been entrusted with the Delhi Integrated Multi Model Transit System Limited, New Delhi by the Transport Department, he said in reply to a question raised by K Lakshminarayanan ( Congress) during Question Hour in the Assembly on Thursday.

The consultancy firm, as per the guidelines of the Ministry of Urban Development, would provide recommendations on the public transport implementation plan, road network development plan, non-motorist transport network facilities, mobility management measures, regulatory and institutional measures and fiscal measures.

Lakshminarayanan suggested the inclusion of MLAs when the recommendations given by the consultant were being discussed for implementation, to which Chief minister agreed.

G Nehru (AINRC) said the multi-level parking system planned by the government should be implemented to free the roads from vehicles. Anbazhagan (AIADMK) said  the unlicensed guest houses, where several vehicles were parked by tourists, also caused traffic problems.

On water purifying plants, the Chief Minister said the  administration would set up 26 such plants this year. Replying to a question from C Jayakumar (Congress), Rangasamy said that wherever the quality of the water was not up to the mark, such plants would be set up. He added that the N R Congress government was sticking to its policy that no polluting industry would be allowed here.

He further  said that steps would be taken to replace  the old pipes in Karaikal with new ones to provide quality drinking water. When E Valsaraj (Congress) made a plea for establishing a unit each in Mahe and Yanam, Rangasamy gave a nod to it.

To another query from AMH Nazeem (DMK), Rangasamy said the administration was taking steps to construct the integrated court complex and the Transport Department office in  Karaikal. The government order sanctioning about Rs 2.58 crore for the construction work was issued, he said.
