Mumbai, Jan 15: Stressing on the need for creating an integrated parking system in Mumbai, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today asked the city’s civic body to deliberate on the issue without violating current policy on open spaces.
Speaking at a review meeting on traffic problems in Mumbai and Thane, Fadnavis also said that parking spaces need to be created for taxis and autorickshaws and advanced technology needs to be utilised to improve traffic management.
“CCTVs will be installed in Mumbai and that will help in security as well as traffic management. Special cameras will be set up at important points to check and take action against signal violations, rash driving and parking vehicles ahead of the stop line,”
Fadnavis told the meeting. The Chief Minister said public awareness about traffic regulations and strict implementation of laws was necessary. “As per the new traffic security law, violations attract strict penalty and repeat offenders will have their licence cancelled,” he said. More info
