GUWAHATI, Dec 4 - A meeting of Kamrup (Metro) district Regional Transport Authority (RTA) was held today, where Deputy Commissioner of Kamrup (Metro) Dr M Angamuthu directed the officials to prepare a report on the accident-prone areas of the city and to evolve measures to prevent mishaps in those locations.
The report will be prepared by Additional Deputy Commissioner PP Bora and submitted within seven days.
According to the PWD (Roads) there are 10 black spots on the GS Road itself.
To regulate the city buses, the DC directed the GMC and Traffic Police to find out prospective locations for bus stops outside the GMC area. The bus routes will be fixed by RTA.
The problem of people riding two-wheelers without wearing helmet and reckless driving, besides drunken driving, was also discussed at the meeting.
In this regard, the DC ordered cancellation of the licences of wrongdoers.
A resolution was taken to protect the roadside and to erect fencing in the accident-prone areas along the roads.
It was also decided to put reflectors on the medians, to illuminate the national highway from Jalukbari to Sonapur and to smoothen the main roads of the city.
The PWD was entrusted with putting �silent zone� signage on important places of the city.
Dr Angamuthu also directed the transport department officials to let e-rickshaws ply on the outskirts of the city and to organise seminars on road safety at schools and colleges.
