The Chief Minister, who reviewed traffic management and control in Hyderabad at the Secretariat, said a comprehensive plan should be made for traffic control and management in Hyderabad in accordance with the future needs and coordination with GHMC and police department.

The Chief Minister asked the police department to give top priority to traffic control within the Greater Hyderabad limits.

Stating that law and order police should be used for traffic control duties in the city during peak hours, he said arrangements should be made for the presence of traffic personnel at all major junctions and high traffic areas in the city.

“The police should not rely only on the automatic signal system. Sub-inspectors and constables should be sent on two-wheelers to clear traffic jams,” he suggested.

The Chief Minister said it was decided to upgrade traffic police stations under the jurisdiction of Hyderabad, Cyberabad and Rachakonda Commissionerates and that the number of staff needed for the purpose would be appointed.

Attention should be given to the expansion of main roads and junctions in accordance with the increasing traffic, he said, adding that the feasibility of constructing subways, underpasses and surface ways like LB Nagar Junction should be identified.

When officials brought to the Chief Minister’s notice that traffic problems could be eliminated if the parking problem was overcome and with construction of multi-level car parking centres at as many places as possible, he asked them to identify private and government spaces for parking and also to prepare a special parking policy.
