Adviser inaugurates Road Embedded Traffic Light signal at Sukhna Lake
Chandigarh, 4th October 2019: The Engineering Department, Chandigarh Administration achieved yet another landmark by providing Road Embedded Traffic Light signal on Uttar Marg adjacent to parking lot of Sukhna lake. The signal was inaugurated by Sh. Manoj Parida, Adviser to Administator today.
The visitors coming at lake park their vehicles at the parking that is at the opposite side of the lake and cross the road to visit lake . Though, the stop lines and zebra crossing are marked on the road, yet due to heavy influx of visitors, more safety measures are required for public safety. A decision was taken in this regard to provide this road embedded signal, so as to provide a light actuated barrier to the traffic for safety of the visitors crossing the road. This will eliminate the possibility of any mishappening.
The Chief Engineer-cum- Special Secretary (Engg.) apprised that this system is being implemented first time as pilot project and if found successful, it will be replicated at other vulnerable locations across the city as this is a big milestone for road safety.
