Keeping in view the safety and security of the commuters travelling on national highways falling in the urban limits of Kharar, Deputy Commissioner-cum-Chairperson of District Road Safety Committee Aashika Jain has asked National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) officials to remove bottlenecks and make the accident-prone junctions safe.
Working on the directions, a joint visit was conducted by officials of the NHAI, the Traffic Police, Kharar, and the Municipal Council, Kharar.
“The joint inspection team identified five busy junctions, which are vulnerable to accidents too due to chaos.
