Hyderabad Traffic Police on Tuesday organised an awareness programme on noise pollution at the main gate of KBR Park.
The preliminary data from the study points towards the hazardous working conditions -- being exposed to vehicular pollution for long hours.
After videos of ambulances stuck in traffic went viral, the Hyderabad Traffic Police clarified that they always give top priority to ambulances and other emergency vehicles.
Under the system, around 150 new traffic signals and 100 pedestrian-friendly pelican signals were to be installed by a private agency across Hyderabad, Cyberabad and Rachakonda Commissionerates.
Despite this, police managed to execute the green channel and cover the distance of nearly 12 km in a span of 15 minutes, which otherwise takes nearly 45 minutes to span in heavy traffic.
