Chandigarh, October 17

The UT police have designated the open space at 33 government schools in 18 sectors as additional parking in order to avoid traffic congestion during the festival season.

Manoj Kumar Meena, SSP, Security and Traffic, has written a letter to the Chairman, Chandigarh Beopar Mandal, to take up the matter with all market associations for better traffic management. The shopkeepers have been advised to park their cars on the rear side of their shops and not encroach upon the parking area.

Shopkeepers may be advised not to park their vehicles on pedestrian pathways/cycle tracks, reads the advisory.

The open spaces in the government schools of Sector 8, 15, 18, 19, 20, 22, 29, 30, 32, 34, 35, 37, 38, 40, 41, 44, 46 and Mani Majra will double as parking space for vehicles during the festive season.

Chandigarh Beopar Mandal chairman Charanjiv Singh said, “Some congested markets, including Sector 21, 22, 23, 27, 28, 45 and 46, have been left out. We will approach the SSP (Traffic) to provide additional parking space in these sectors too.”
