Hyderabad: Lockdown is helping Cyberabad traffic police to improve road safety infrastructure across its jurisdiction. They have identified around 30 junctions in the commissionerate limits for improving infrastructure in such a way that it would inculcate road sense among users and also prevent jaywalking.
For instance, at the cyber tower junction, its centre is marked with yellow lines to indicate to the drivers that they are forbidden from stopping their vehicle on those lines.
Good road infrastructure coupled with civic sense can improve road safety. Towards this, they have started redesigning various junctions by taking up zebra marking, installation of signboards, railing on the central median and bollards at vulnerable road curves, among others.
According to Cyberabad traffic police, after close analysis and inputs from engineers, they have identified around 30 accident-prone junctions, including Cyber tower junction, Gachibowli junction, Nizampet junction, Aramghar junction, and others.
Also identified are high-risk roads which report frequent accidents like the NH65 stretch from Moosapet to ICRISAT, Old Mumbai Highway, road under the PVNR Expressway and others.Explaining about the yellow boxes, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Cyberabad Traffic S. M. Vijay Kumar said, “In a first-of-its-kind initiative in the city, we have laid yellow boxes at the junction. They denote that once a vehicle enters the area it should not stop but keep moving. In others words, vehicles should enter the area when the way is clear for them.”
