GUWAHATI, Sept 7 � Parking of private vehicles on the GS Road from Khanapara to Bharalumukh point will be banned after 45 days from today and offices and commercial establishments located in the stretch will have to make their own arrangements for parking of vehicles.

MGVK Bhanu, Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister, carried out an inspection of the entire stretch today, accompanied by senior officials, including Kamrup Metro DC Dr M Angamuthu, GMC Commissioner S Viswanath, SSP AP Tiwari, SP Traffic (City), and staff from Water Resources, PWD and GMDA.

Bhanu directed SP Traffic to ensure that there was no parking of private vehicles in the stretch and directed PWD to make the footpaths free from vendors and also to construct railings along the footpaths.

He also announced that DC, GMC Commissioner, SSP and SP Traffic will visit various locations across the city every Sunday to review progress of the work.

Later, speaking to The Assam Tribune, Dr Angamuthu said the entire public road from Khanapara to Bharalumukh will be made a �No Parking� zone. �A survey will be carried out. All illegal structures and encroachments will be cleared. Notices will be issued to offices, shops and commercial establishments to make alternative parking arrangements within 45 days. The establishments which fail to adhere to the directions will have to close down. People of the city cannot be made to suffer like this and hard steps are necessary,� he said.

He said the traffic menace has increased tremendously in the city and common people are inconvenienced due to haphazard parking. Even the GMC will not be allowed henceforth to operate parking places in the main road.
