The Metropolitan Traffic Police Division is all set to bring the time card system into operation for goods-carrying vehicles plying from Jagati of Bhaktapur to Koteshwar of Kathmandu beginning from July 17.
The traffic police is implementing the time card system in its bid to minimize the increasing traffic accidents in the Kathmandu Valley.
As per time card system, goods-carrying vehicles like trucks, tippers, vans etc will have to maintain speed limit of 40 kilometres per hour on the six-lane road from Jagati to Koteshwar.
Similarly, the MTPD has brought a plan according to which the goods-carrying vehicles and public transport vehicles will be required to operate on the left lane while motorcycles, cars, taxis, tourist buses and buses operated by diplomatic missions on the right lane of the road from Jagati to Koteshwar. This rule will come into effect from July 17.
The MTPD has also prohibited entry of trucks and tippers in the Kathmandu Valley from 8 am to 12 noon and from 3 pm to 8 pm on view of traffic management.
There are three million eighty thousand vehicles plying all over the country and 1.1 million vehicles operating in the Kathmandu Valley alone at present.
Seven out of eight local levels in Banke, the district in Province 5, do not have own ambulance service. The Narainapur rural municipality purchased an ambulance few months ago and the ambulance service is irregular here too due to lack of roads in good condition. The village people do not have easy access to better healthcare facilities.
