Sensor-Based Cameras and E-Challan System

To ensure vehicle owners comply with traffic rules, the committee discussed installing sensor-based cameras and implementing an e-challan system similar to Jaipur. 

Permanent Pencil Dividers on Fatehsagar Road

In the previous meeting, experimental pencil dividers on Fatehsagar Road received positive feedback for improving traffic management. The committee decided to make these dividers permanent, citing their effectiveness.

Addressing Bottleneck at Swaroop Sagar Bridge

Deputy Superintendent of Police Traffic, Netrapal Singh, highlighted the need to address the bottleneck beyond Swaroop Sagar Bridge. ADM Rathore instructed a joint inspection to explore solutions for opening the bottleneck and presenting a detailed report.

Removing Pencil Divider at Court Chauraha

An issue was raised regarding the creation of an unofficial parking area due to a pencil divider at the corner of Chetak Circle Road. The committee decided to remove this pencil divider to prevent further parking issues.

Review of Previous Tasks

The meeting also reviewed the progress on previously approved and directed tasks, ensuring that all measures are effectively implemented to improve the city's traffic system.

The District Road Safety Committee continues to work towards systematic and sustainable traffic management in Udaipur, ensuring safer and more efficient roads for all citizens. 

Construction of Flyover

The Municipal Corporation has confirmed that the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the construction of a flyover from Delhi Gate to Court Chauraha and towards Ashwini Bazaar is ready.

Regarding the widening work at Sukhadiya Tiraha, the Municipal Commissioner has informed that the task of relocating the wall behind Sukhadiya Samadhi has been successfully completed. 

Relocating Electrical Transformer

Ajmer Discom has made the necessary deposit for relocating the electrical transformer. The relocation will be finished by 20 July, 2024. As for the proposal to construct a sleeper lane within the railway boundary near Rana Pratap Railway Station, there has been no positive response from railway authorities. Consequently, the Additional District Magistrate (ADM) has instructed to convene a meeting in the upcoming session to discuss the matter with railway officials.

Progress on establishing a night market on the bus stand was also discussed in the meeting. It was revealed that the previous tender process had failed, prompting a reissue of tenders.
