Lt Governor Anil Baijal today directed the local government and civic agencies to decongest two busy south Delhi corridors by acting against unauthorised parking and encroachments. The two corridors — Aurobindo Marg and the stretch between Chirag Delhi to Savitri flyover — will see coordinated action among the PWD, municipal corporations, DDA and the Delhi Police towards decongestion, an LG office statement said. The decision was taken at a meeting on traffic management at Raj Niwas, the official residence of the LG, that was attended by PWD Minister Satyendar Jain, Chief Secretary MM Kutty, south Delhi municipal commissioner, DDA vice chairman and special commissioner of police (Traffic) among others.
Baijal was informed by the concerned authorities that the agencies responsible for the task including PWD, NDMC, SDMC, DDA, and Delhi Police have been identified and the required action plan to decongest in a “time-bound manner” has also been chalked out, the statement said. “It was agreed by all the stakeholders on board that certain activities such as removal of encroachment, restructuring and redesigning of certain road stretches, construction of foot over bridges and underpasses wherever necessary need to be undertaken immediately,” it added.
