Zebra crossings are marked only during VIP visits in Guwahati
GUWAHATI: The Public Works Department (PWD) becomes active in the city only during the visit of VIPs.
An official claimed that the government sanctions funds for marking the zebra crossings on the roads and for repairing the traffic signage ahead of the arrival of VIPs in Guwahati.
He underscored the perennial crisis of funds in the department that has hampered work on the zebra crossings and traffic signage. “There are proposals submitted to the government and the World Bank for financial support to upgrade all the city roads with proper markings and traffic signage but sanctions for only few roads are received from the state government.”
The official however clarified that work on the zebra crossings and traffic signage is on at GS Road, AT Road and MG Road. He said a plan had already been submitted for the upgradation of roads in the city and the department is waiting for the sanction of funds by the government.
