The city of Belgaum has seen some tremendous increase in traffic on roads and hence SP Sandeep Patil has said that from June 24, 2013 no lorries would be allowed to enter Belgaum city limits for specific time period.
The entry of trucks will be banned from 8 a.m. To 11 a.m and from 4 p.m. To 6 p.m. During this time all lorries/ trucks entering Belgaum city limits would be stopped at the entrance of the city like trucks coming from Khanapur will be blocked at Udyambag; Trucks coming from Bagewadi will be blocked at Sambra under bridge; Trucks coming from Kakati will be blocked at KLEs cross. Trucks coming from Chandgad will be blocked at Hindalga.
This is being currently under taken on a trial basis and after the feedback is received a permanent plan would be made, Sandeep Patil said.
This would be on a trail basis for two weeks and the further course would be decided later.
It will be good to recall that in November 2012 a similar statement was released by the SP and nothing really changed, hope this time this is implemented strictly.
