GUWAHATI, Oct 11 � The Kamrup Metro district administration and City Traffic Police have suspended the �Non-Reversible Circular Traffic Movement� in the RP Road, which was implemented on an experimental basis from this morning.
Dr M Angamuthu, Kamrup Metro Deputy Commissioner, told reporters that the purpose of the experimental implementation of the circular movement was to study the volume of traffic in and around Ganeshguri and nearby areas. �We will now analyse the data and after consultation with experts we will formulate a future plan,� Dr Angamuthu said.
The administration�s decision came after huge traffic jams were witnessed in and around Ganeshguri, including in GS Road since this morning after the experimental circular movement was put into place. By early afternoon, the plan was suspended.
Commenting on the matter, MGVK Bhanu, principal secretary to the Chief Minister, said that converting the RP Road into a one-way would only lead to further jams in the GS Road and RG Baruah Road.
�We have found that it was not a solution. Our plan will be to streamline the existing traffic and implement a comprehensive plan across the city by January 1, 2015,� Bhanu said.
