SHILLONG, Oct 2: City Superintendent of Police (SP) Vivek Syiem on Monday informed the general public that after a trial run of about eight months from 8th February to September where it was found that the new traffic arrangement could not bring any traffic improvement at Don Bosco point and its adjoining localities and also considering the steepness of the Jacob Ladder Road where much inconvenience is being observed, the traffic arrangement is hereby reverted with effect from Wednesday.
He said that vehicles coming from Laitumkhrah and going towards St Anthony’s College can go down through Jacob’s Ladder Road and not the reverse way. Vehicles coming from St Anthony’s College and proceeding towards Laitumkhrah can exit through St Mary’s College-Shillong Commerce College Road.
Syiem said vehicles coming from Shillong Commerce College and Shillong College can exit through St Mary’s College towards Don Bosco Point and vehicles can enter Upland Road through Red Hill Junction and exit at Don Bosco and not the reverse way.
He further said that vehicles will continue to climb from Lower Lachummiere towards St Stephen Hall road and exit at Don Bosco Square. At the same time, vehicles can come from Don Bosco and exit down through Jacob Ladder road.
