The UTTIPEC has been asked to look into the possible problems, specially the traffic chaos and parking issues, on ground and (find) solutions in consultation with the local RWA and the traffic police in Greater Kailash II.
The residents from the plush Greater Kailash II have been protesting an upcoming mall-cum-cinema complex at the place of erstwhile Savitri cinema complex for a few months claiming that the opening of the complex will lead to traffic chaos. The residents claim that the complex neither has adequate parking facility nor a proper entry-exit plan for visiting vehicles.
The traffic police had already given the no objection certificate (NOC) in 2008 under the rules applicable then. However, claiming alterations at
ground situation, the federation of GK II complex RWAs had earlier approached the unified traffic and transportation infrastructure (planning and engineering) centre (UTTIPEC) - the technical body that approves all infrastructure projects for the city - with their grievance.
"But the officials there said they would take action only after a word from the lieutenant governor's office. So we approached him," said Chetan Sharma, the federation's chairman.
After the federation's representation at the LG's office, Ranjan Mukherjee, OSD at the LG's office, wrote to the joint commissioner of police (traffic) and director UTTIPEC, Delhi Development Authority, "It is desired that UTTIPEC may look into the problems on ground and solutions in consultation with the RWA of GK II and traffic police. ATR be forwarded to this office for kind perusal of lieutenant governor at the earliest."
The federation members, including Sharma and Ashok Batra, president of the organisation, made a representation to the traffic police on Monday.
Satyendra Garg, joint CP (traffic), said, "We will examine the ground situation and give our comments on the residents' representation to authorities concerned. It would then be for them to decide further."
