Hyderabad: In an effort to alleviate traffic congestion along Cyberabad's bustling IT corridor, the Society for Cyberabad Security Council (SCSC), in collaboration with Cyberabad Traffic Police Joint Commissioner D. Joel Davis, IPS., convened a meeting with prominent IT/ITes organizations situated in Raheja Mindspace.

The primary agenda of the gathering was to apprise the industry stakeholders of the measures undertaken by the Cyberabad traffic police to ease congestion on vital arterial routes and solicit feedback and suggestions from the corporate sector.

Prioritized Road Initiatives

During the meeting, D. Joel Davis, IPS., highlighted the identification of two priority roads for immediate attention: the stretch from JNTU to Bio-diversity and Alwyn Junction to Gachibowli Flyover.

Over the past two months, the Cyberabad Traffic Police has implemented various initiatives aimed at decongesting these critical thoroughfares.

Notable interventions include the redesigning of the Ikea rotary to facilitate a U-turn and the conversion of the Kothaguda flyover into a two-way passage to manage heavy morning traffic towards the Gachibowli junction.

Industry Engagement for Traffic Management

Addressing the assembly of IT/ITes company officials, Ramesh Kaza, Secretary-General of SCSC, underscored the importance of collaborative efforts in traffic management.

He revealed SCSC's commitment to supporting the Cyberabad Traffic Police by deploying 50 dedicated traffic marshals drawn from member organizations.

Kaza urged companies to contribute further by assigning two to four security guards per company, depending on their size, to serve as traffic marshals. These volunteers would undergo training and operate under the guidance of traffic police to enhance traffic regulation.

Kaza acknowledged the proactive support of organizations like DLF, Dell, and Skyview, who have already contributed traffic marshals for daily deployment.

Industry Response and Call for Staggered Timings

Sriniwas CR, Joint Secretary of Traffic Safety Forum, emphasized the pivotal role of industry cooperation in the success of staggered timings. He stressed that staggered work hours would not only ease traffic congestion but also result in significant time savings for employees during their commute.

Call to Action

Companies interested in contributing to traffic safety initiatives are encouraged to contact SCSC at or via mobile at 9000257058.
