    Jamshedpur : Durga Oraon, who assumed the post of superintendent of police Seraikela-Kharsawan has said that the police would conduct a survey of vehicular traffic movement on Tata-Kandra Road and Kandra-Chowka-Chandil Road, and will work out on a mechanism for streamlining the traffic system.

    Soon after taking over as the SP, Oraon said that part from the crime graph checking the spate of road mishaps, especially on Tata-Kandra Road and Kandra-Chowka-Chandil Road will be of his prime priority. ” I am concerned over the rising number of mishaps at the Tata-Kandra Road and Kandra-Chowka-Chandil roads that have been built recently. We have to stop it. I will work on this plan,” said Oraon.

    Oraon said as an alternative he has decided to put barricades of drums in between the necessary distance. “The barricade of drums put up at strategic distance on Tata-Kandra Road will be a best solution to check the rash-driving. We will work in this direction soon,” said Oraon.

    The Tata-Kandra four-lane has become a mishap-prone road where fatal road mishaps have become a regular affair. According to data available, ever since the Tata-Kandra four-lane came into being one-and-half years ago, 186 people have died in the road accidents and more than 200 persons suffered grievous injury in separate road mishaps.

    Sources said that heavy vehicles coming out of industrial units of Adityapur are the worst offenders. Instead of keeping left and then taking a U-turn after a kilometre or so, these trucks hurtle down the wrong side, facing oncoming traffic and risking the lives of hundreds on two or four-wheelers.

    The newly inaugurated sprawling Tata-Kandra Road four-lane has virtually turned into into death trap’ considering the number of causalities reported in one and half years.

    Despite a one-way road, the Tata-Kandra four-lane has become a mishap-prone road where fatal road mishaps have become a regular affair.

    “There are no traffic rules on the Tata-Kandra Road. Drivers have to be alert throughout the stretch and dodge vehicles coming from the wrong side,” said a senior official of Gamharia based company.

    Very recently a 35-year-old man was fatally injured as the bike he was riding was first hit by a 407 truck coming from the opposite direction and subsequently by a dumper from behind on Tata-Kandra Road near the Sudha Dairy bottling unit under Adityapur police station area.
