Congestion charge for Delhiites

Delhi seems to be preparing in full swing for the Commonwealth games. The modernisation of police including the introduction of the mini robot, going green, improved infrastructure and now it is the drive to reduce congestion on roads.

In a bid to reduce the congestion on certain roads to make them congestion free, the government will now charge the commuters for travelling in the congested roads of the city. The trend already exists in Europe where they have a Congestion Charge Zone (CCZ). It helps reduce congestion and also increases funds for the transport system.

Speaking at a discussion on 'Clean air before the Commonwealth Games' at the Centre for Science and Environment, Delhi Environment secretary Dharmendra said, "The Delhi Transport department is working out a plan to levy a fee on motorists driving in the congested areas of the capital before the Games. The step would help in controlling number of vehicles in busy areas during the sporting event. There has been a quantum jump in the number of vehicles plying on roads in the capital in the last few years and such steps can help in checking inflow of vehicles on Delhi roads."

Managing traffic during the upcoming Commonwealth Games is a big challenge for the Delhi government. The Delhi Traffic police is also planning to have dedicated lanes during the Games for swift movement of athletes and delegates.
