LUDHIANA: To pro­vide a safe ride to peo­ple on the el­e­vated road from Sabzi Mandi to Ja­graon bridge chowk, se­nior deputy mayor Praveen Bansal vis­ited the site on the el­e­vated road with his tech­ni­cal team of ex­perts.

Bansal vis­ited the site re­cently af­ter a man died as he had hit a rail­ing on the curve re­cently.

How­ever, ear­lier also, many a time the is­sue was high­lighted say­ing that the el­e­vated road had not been built right tech­ni­cally and there were a num­ber of faults that led to ac­ci­dents. But, to over­come the tech­ni­cal lapses, Bansal vis­ited the Ja­groan bridge and par­tic­u­lar turns where the max­i­mum ac­ci­dents took place.

He asked the of­fi­cials con­cerned to in­stall big rail­ings with nets or sheets on it so that in case a per­son hits the rail­ing sup­port­ing the el­e­vated road, he avoids a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent. He also as­sured an early so­lu­tion to the prob­lem.

Mak­ing the most of the mo­ment, even the traf­fic po­lice on the Ja­graon bridge also put for­ward their woes. They said the di­vider on the road was made on the wrong side due to which traf­fic jams were seen very of­ten, in­creas­ing prob­lems for them as well as the com­muters.

Bansal or­dered the of­fi­cials to cut short the di­vider on one side so that the po­lice could put bar­ri­ers and hence di­vert traf­fic from the other side.
