BRTS route study not conducted yet, say Traffic cops

Ahmedabad Traffic Police are yet to take any precautionary step despite occurrence of several accidents on BRTS (Bus Rapid Transit System) route at the Helmet Crossroads in Ahmedabad.

In February, a team of the Ahmedabad Traffic Police had planned to undertake a survey of the BRTS routes and bring out the study report.DCP Traffic M M Anarwala, when contacted, said the study has not been done yet.

Besides, the Traffic police had planned to increase the number of personnel on the BRTS routes and especially at the intersection points.

As part of this initiative, more than 15 former servicemen trained as traffic cops were deployed on the 16-km BRTS corridor.
DCP D H Parmar, who handles the additional charge of Traffic, said, “We have increased the number of the personnel on BRTS routes and have also deployed homeguards at many junctions. Special care is taken of the junctions where the traffic is heavy.
