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.

ACHIEVING ADEQUATE FUNDING
Safe System introduction is likely, over time, to lead to fundamental change in an authority’s approach and programmes. Cost-effective safety interventions and investment will become a more substantial component within new projects and maintenance and reconstruction works, and will also support improved worksite safety management. For all LMICs, understanding and identification of higher crash risk issues

It is often the role of local government, for example, to provide footpaths abutting new road developments or existing roads. There is a need to consider pedestrian safety issues as well as motorised road user and cyclist safety. Policies need to be devised and adopted for safe movement of pedestrians along and across roads and for potential treatments at higher-risk locations. Funding arrangements need to be resolved to ensure pedestrian facilities are in place or provided.

In addition, local governments have land use planning responsibilities to control the nature of new development, access to road reserves, and prevention of illegal development. They also have roadside management responsibilities to control the unsafe effects of roadside activities. These powers often apply to national roads in LMICs.

THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF SUPPORTING PROVINCIAL AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS
Local governments will need support in introducing Safe System principles, and will also contribute input about how Safe System treatments can be more effectively implemented. The importance of the role of local government is illustrated by the example of Indonesia where recent data suggests that more than 70% of road crash fatalities occur on provincial and local roads and streets, not national highways.
