Pakistan Observer - - KARACHI CITY -

KARACHI—The In­spec­tor Gen­eral of Sindh Po­lice, A.D. Khawaja has or­dered the Karachi Traf­fic Po­lice to con­duct sur­vey of the roads in or­der to as­sess the vol­ume of traf­fic dur­ing dif­fer­ent hours of a day.

The po­lice spokesman in­formed here Tues­day that the IG is­sued the di­rec­tives in view of the com­plaints of traf­fic log­jams dur­ing cer­tain hours of a day. The IG asked the po­lice of­fi­cials to en­sure that not only traf­fic jam prob­lem on any given road was im­me­di­ately ad­dressed but the dis­trict po­lice should also main­tain strict vig­i­lance to avoid any rob­bery from the com­muters.

The IG asked the traf­fic po­lice of­fi­cials to sur­vey which roads in Karachi take the higher vol­ume of traf­fic dur­ing which hours of a day and also to co­or­di­nate with the gov­ern­ment and pri­vate of­fices, ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions and mar­kets to make a com­pre­hen­sive traf­fic plan.

Khawaja directed the DIG traf­fic to de­ploy the SSPs of traf­fic in each dis­trict of Karachi to per­son­ally mon­i­tor the traf­fic dur­ing rush hours and to sug­gest al­ter­nate routes to the com­muters through the traf­fic war­dens and other modes of com­mu­ni­ca­tion. He em­pha­sized on the need of im­prov­ing Karachi traf­fic man­age­ment and reg­u­la­tory sys­tem and bring­ing it at par with those in the mega cities of the de­vel­oped world.

Khawaja asked the traf­fic po­lice to en­sure de­ploy­ment of the traf­fic war­dens at all the ma­jor roads, in­ter-sec­tions, u-turns and other traf­fic junc­tions.—APP
