State Govt to ensure proper signs and markings on all its roads
The State Government has given directions to ensure that all roads in its jurisdiction follow the latest provisions of Indian Roads Congress (IRC) to improve the safety and comfort of journeys. Many of the roads though already have in place all rules and regulations.
As per the directions, the State Public Works Department (PWD) will ensure that all rules are complied with for all roads under its jurisdiction in Bangla. The department has directed its engineers in all its divisions to complete the work as early as possible.
The jurisdictions of roads must be properly indicated at an interval of 2.5 km on both sides of a road. All roads across the State must also be fixed with cat’s eyes (reflectors) for visibility at night.
The department has further directed the putting up of cautionary signs, signage on facility information, signs for disabled persons, route marker signs and other useful information signs, wherever needed.
