  • | Sunday | 29th October, 2023

Noida: Traffic police in the city have written to the Noida Authority, urging it to install new signboards at key locations such as Pari Chowk, Film City, DND Flyway and Mahamaya flyover.DCP (traffic) Anil Kumar Yadav said signboards at many places had either faded away or were broken.Signage installed on roads provide crucial information to drivers and commuters in general.At some locations, these boards are so small that they are not visible from a distance. In such situations, commuters get confused and take a wrong turn. To make up for the lost time, many of them drive back on the wrong side, increasing the chances of accidents and leading to snarls. We have requested the Noida Authority to place large signboards on the DND Flyway, Pari Chowk, and sectors 16 and 27, he added.Proper signboards, Yadav said, help in streamlining the flow of traffic. They indicate speed limits, warn of upcoming intersections, guide drivers to parking lots and provide information about lanes. Such traffic management reduces congestion and ensures the smooth flow of vehicles, he added.Gaurav Kumar, a commuter, insisted that signboards needed to be replaced at several key locations to ensure vehicles moved seamlessly. Many boards at different locations on the DND Flyway and Noida expressway have either faded away or got damaged. They need to be fixed at the earliest, he added.The traffic cops are also planning to conduct a drive to paste reflective tapes on vehicles to improve visibility during fog in winter. Such tapes are designed to reflect light, making the vehicle more visible in low-light or dark conditions. This increased visibility helps other drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians to spot the vehicle from a distance. Reflective tapes are particularly valuable at night.We also published the following articles recentlySystem to find localised solutions for traffic woes at 100 locationsThe Greater Chennai Corporation has identified 100 roads with traffic issues and proposed solutions such as diversions and fixing potholes.
