TINSUKIA: A threadbare discussion on the development of Tinsukia was held on Wednesday at the DC’s conference hall with Bhaskar Pegu, Deputy Commissioner of Tinsukia, in the chair where leading, senior citizens, departmental officials, senior police officials, including representatives from various organizations and chairperson of Tinsukia Municipal Board, Dipti Das were present.
The meeting discussed a number of issues like parking of vehicles, shifting of markets, broadening of main roads and eviction of illegal road encroachment and roadside eateries. The speakers one after another raised problems that inflicted the town. They also suggested viable suggestions. The Deputy Commissioner after four long hours of discussion suggested both short-term and long-term measures.
As a priority, several sub-committees will be constituted with the members from administration, police, municipality, and citizens to implement the decisions. As a short-term policy, an eviction will be carried out from the footpath along with roadside eateries while TMB has been advised to look for an alternative place. A single parking system will be enforced with dividers on certain roads for easy movement of the vehicles while some designated parking lots like Old Railway Station, Dakbanglow premises, TDA Central Plaza have been earmarked for light vehicles. The meeting also decided to curb unregulated parking of trucks by suggesting suitable places restricting the loading and unloading within a stipulated time.
