ANTI-ENCROACHMENT DRIVE, A TOOTH­LESS TIGER

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Lucknow -

The po­lice, along with dis­trict ad­min­is­tra­tion, have launched a fresh drive to de­con­gest the en­tire stretch. The drive largely in­cludes re­moval of en­croach­ments, ban­ning the move­ment e-rick­shaws, free­ing the il­le­gal park­ing space on the road.

The ad­min­is­tra­tion has also tweaked traf­fic move­ment on cer­tain sec­tions and cre­ated ‘free left turns’ at cross­ings to pre­vent ac­cu­mu­la­tion of mo­tor­cy­cles.

But, the ef­fec­tive­ness of the drive is yet to be seen. Shop own­ers near Jawa­har Bhawan said, “It’s not the first drive car­ried out on Ashok Marg. It’s a rou­tine af­fair. Things will be back to square one in the next cou­ple of days,” said Sushant Mishra, who runs a makeshift shop on Ashok Marg.
