Traffic lights to be installed in 3 places of Lalitpur

LALITPUR: Preparation is underway to install traffic lights in three places of Lalitpur district.

Earlier, there was not a single traffic light in the entire Lalitpur district, shared Sitaram Hachhethu, Chief at Metropolitan Traffic Police, Lalitpur.

As per the plan, the traffic lights are to be set up in front of Alka Hospital in Jawalakhel, Minister Quarter in Pulchok, and Kandevtasthan in Kupandole.

The traffic light installation is to be carried out in collaboration with Lalitpur Metropolitan City office. Hachhethu said the traffic lights had been essential in these areas for a long time for the purpose of managing the movement of vehicles and people on the busy roads.

"The setup of lights will ease both traffic and the drivers," he further said.

The installation of traffic lights in these three areas of Lalitpur will relieve the daily traffic jam that occurs in Thapathali. This will also ease the load on traffic police team and encourage the drivers to manage vehicle speed.

He added that the drivers can detect the lights from a far distance with ease. The setting up of traffic lights will also increase road discipline among the drivers that will naturally reduce road accidents.
