The ride on the 25-km Noida expressway will be safer and hassle-free from January 1, claims the Noida authority which plans to deploy eight dedicated vehicles and a team of 12 cops on the high-speed link from the new year.
The expressway is daily used by about 1 lakh commuters.
“We have arranged four Innovas, two cranes and two ambulances for the expressway. Innovas will intensify patrolling on this high-speed link, the cranes will help remove accident vehicles and ambulances provide first aid to the accident victims while rushing them to nearby hospitals,” said Sandip Chandra, head of traffic cell.
“The main objective of the special 12-member team will be to check overspeeding and offer a quick aid to accident victims,” said Chandra.
The authority has also directed the Uttar Pradesh state regional transport corporation (UPSRTC) to run more buses on the expressway so that the high-speed link could be de-congested and a smooth drive ensured to commuters.
With a budget of R 26 crore, the authority is expected to implement intelligent traffic management system from mid-December.
Hindustan Times had run a campaign for better facilities on the expressway to curb accidents.
Dozens of MNCs, BPOs, and IT enabled firms and their offices are located along this high-speed link.
