GURGAON: The administration is planning to engage RWAs to mitigate noise pollution in the city and create more “no-honking” zones in the city. Last month, the district administration declared the entire 20km stretch of the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway, from the Sirhaul border to the Kherki Daula toll plaza, a “no-honking” zone.
Now, additional deputy commissioner (ADC) Hitesh Kumar Meena has directed senior officials to expedite the process of installing “no-honking” zone boards along the stretch at intervals of 200 metres.
In a meeting of the district road safety committee on Tuesday, Meena also directed RWAs to create awareness about noise pollution and create “no-honking” zones around their residential areas. “RWAs can be engaged for effective implementation and create more such zones in the city,” Meena said.
Residents also raised issues such as poor condition of roads and increasing number of potholes after the recent rains. On this, the ADC directed officials to fill up the potholes in areas such as IFFCO Chowk, Mahavir Chowk, Golf Course Road (Extension), Udyog Vihar, Palam Vihar and Sector 5.
Regional transport officer (RTO) Gajendra Singh said there are around 100 illegal cuts on NH-8 between Sirhaul to Sidhrawali, which are traffic hazards and result in accidents. The ADC directed officials to visit all the cuts and submit a detailed report on each cut with a possible plan of action. Earlier in July, deputy commissioner Nishant Yadav had directed action against five dhabas and two fuel stations located near the Rampura flyover, which allegedly obstructed a surface drain along NH-8 by creating illegal cuts on the expressway.
