Road maintenance and Traffic management as a responsibility.

Road connectivity makes a crucial contribution to the growth of the state and its economic and social development. Almost every passenger, commercial and industrial transports are carried out through roads in Arunachal Pradesh. The increase in the private vehicle ownership and urban transports has led to overburdening of roads not only in Itanagar and Naharlagun but all major cities of the country. This exaggeration of road promptly reduce the quality of roads, and most of the expenditure is spent on the maintenance of roads every year rather than expansion of the roads. The variations in weather and climate also make it extremely difficult to control the quality of roads in the state.

The roads in urban towns are exceedingly congested due to heavy traffic caused by private, commercial and government vehicles. Traffic issues in the state capital and Naharlagun town areas have turned into a huge menace for the commuters. It has turned into a harsh cliché where bad roads create traffic issues, and the traffic ceases any scope for the development of new roads. The daily struggle and effort of dodging traffic, pollution and rash drivers may cause chronic stress and many physiological problems. Traffic not only creates congestion issues, but it also gives rise to air pollution and sound pollution.

The capital administration and the citizens will have to work in tandem if the state wants to fight the traffic menace in the state capital and see any improvement in traffic and eventually in the lives of the citizens. But this might not be possible if the commuters continue to abuse the roads and break traffic rules. Maintaining traffic rule is a responsibility that should be followed by everyone including individual, commercial, private and government commuters.

MyGov Arunachal Pradesh seeks suggestions from the citizens on how the quality of the roads can be maintained and traffic issues can be managed by the administrations.

Road maintenance involves remedying defects such as potholes that occur in the carriageway from time to time (corrective maintenance) and providing treatments such as crack sealing which will slow the rate of deterioration (preventative maintenance).
Routine Maintenance means maintenance activities that are scheduled in advance and occur on a regular basis, such as weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually, which are normally included as an annually recurring cost in maintenance.

It is our individual duty to address the unsafe road conditions if any to local body/authorities to bring to their notice to ensure timely repairing/maintenance before the road condition further deteriorates.

Be smart to check for real time traffic updates on your route and take any alternate route if available to reach your destination within the expected time.

Parking your vehicle in a NO-PARKING zone is strictly forbidden.
Wait for your turn it take your next move my following traffic signals.
Always be courteous and give your way to the Ambulance/Medical Emergency van, as their priority and urgency of reaching their destination is far more than that of yours.

People should avoid careless and reckless driving as it often leads to fatal road accidents. Following speed limits not only ensures our safety but of also other commuters.

First of all people driving their vehicles should abide by following traffic rules not just because of hefty fines but for their own safety.
