Chamba, December 30

To make traffic control in Chamba town more effective, the Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS)

is being installed at a cost of Rs 10 lakh.

Kangra Lok Sabha MP Kishan Kapoor said this while presiding over a meeting of the district-level road safety committee here today. He said the ITMS was being set up to make traffic management in Chamba more organised.

The command centre would not only improve traffic control, but also help in monitoring the town. For this, tenders would be invited soon, he said.

MLAs Vikram Jaryal, Pawan Nayyar and Jia Lal Kapoor, and District Agricultural Produce Market Committee chairman DS Thakur attended the meeting.

Kapoor instructed officials that important roads in the district be marked with zebra crossing and traffic signage also be installed. He urged people to follow traffic rules.

The MP also directed the SDMs, Deputy Directors (Education) and the Regional Transport Officer to organise programmes to spread awareness on road safety among schoolchildren.

Deputy Commissioner DC Rana said officials of the Public Works Department (PWD) and the National Highways Authority of India had been asked to speed up the black spot rectification work.

PWD Superintending Engineer Diwakar Pathania said 858 black spots had been identified on various roads of the district, of which 644 had been repaired. The NHAI had repaired 19 black spots.
