Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Feb 01 2019:  City Police Commissioner T R Suresh has said that there was a plan to ban processions of any kind on the road from Ambedkar Circle to the DC office in view of the heavy traffic in the area.




Addressing  the Meet the Press programme held at Press Club on February 1, Friday he said the increasing density of vehicles on the city roads and the inability to  widen many of the roads  was leading to traffic congestion. He also stated that one lakh  new vehicles are entering the roads of Mangalore every year. Given this scenario processions are  posing a hindrance in vehicular traffic, he informed.

 The Commissioner also said that there were plans to allocate  one portion of the   Nehru Maidan for parking of vehicle whenever a  public meet, function or any other programme is held there.

Steps will be taken to create awareness on the problems posed due to parking of vehicles  outside wedding halls or houses during functions, he said. On the drugs menace, he said all efforts were underway to sensitize students on the ill-effects of drugs.

He said the phone-in programme initiated by the erstwhile Commissioner  Chandrashekhar has proved very fruitful.

No-horn zones :
The Commissioner stated that the road from Hampankatta to Clock Tower  and from Attavar KMC to Milagres Road have been declared horn-free zone. The notification in this regard will soon be implemented. Awareness programmes too will be held, he informed.

DCP Uma Prashanth, DK District working Journalists Association President Srinivas Nayak Indaje, General Secretary Ibrahim Adkasthala, Press Club President Annu Mangalore were present among others.
