SCB road closures: Defence officials ready to do joint survey with police on Thursday
Decisions will be determined by the findings of the inspection on Thursday
HYDERABAD: The Secunderabad Cantonment Board(SCB) officials, led by Brigadier Soma Shanker GOC, Station incharge, Col. Sidharth, and Hyderabad city police commissioner CV Anand, met on Wednesday in an effort to find an appropriate solution to the contentious issue of Cantonment roads that have been closed for a decade now.
The Colonel's team and the DCP (North - traffic) team will examine each road together to determine which ones may be opened to regular traffic and which ones are sensitive, according to Hyderabad police.
Decisions will be determined by the findings of the inspection on Thursday.
Commissioner of Police CV Anand said, "It is essential to strike a balance between the security needs of the military and defence establishments in the cantonment region and the needs of public convenience and free flow of traffic."
"In view of the expanding population and vehicular traffic, we are also ready to evaluate the element of public convenience and reconsider our stand," said the Brigadier and Station Commander.
CV Anand promised to deploy more traffic personnel, patrol cars, and patrolling teams on those roads to ensure the safety and security of the defence personnel. He also asked civilians and the general public to be patient and not agitate or politicise the process of finding an adequate solution
