Traffic improvement programme

The growing scale of urbanization, city size and the prevailing land use patterns has made the problem of urban traffic and transportation increasingly complex and unmanageable. Urban transport in large cities is under increasing strains and suffers from bottlenecks arising from its weaknesses and ills. The Directorate of Town and Country Planning has undertaken Comprehensive Traffic and Transport study (CTTS) and Traffic Operational and Management Plans (TOMP) for Tirunelveli city. The study reports suggest measures for improving traffic and transport facilities of the town. The State Government has issued orders for implementation of traffic improvement projects towards safe and smooth flow of traffic from one place to another from inter-city and intra-city. In the first phase the Government has sanctioned a sum of Rs.50 lakhs for Tirunelveli town under the disposal of the Director of Town and Country Planning. The project formulation for availing this fund is being undertaken by the Regional Deputy Director of Town and Country Planning, Tirunelveli.
