Mahakumbh goes 'English' for foreigners

Traffic police with fluent English would be acting as guides for visitors especially foreigners.
As it is expected that over 60,000 foreigners would be arriving city during Mahakumbh, traffic police department is all set to play a different role this Mahakumbh.
While smart traffic policemen would be deployed at strategic locations in and around mela area and they would be acting as 'path pradarshak ' for visitors especially for foreigners.
For that, the traffic police department has planned to impart training to its personnel to leave an everlasting impression on visitors.
However, this Mahakumbh, Mobile Barriers, Recovery Vehicles, Safety Bar Torches, Loud Hailer, helmets, Gas masks, ropes, florescent jackets/gloves are some equipment offering traffic police department to control the sea of crowd.
Drafting the final blueprint for managing traffic for Mahakumbh, the traffic police department has decided to set up three traffic police lines including Parade, Arail, and Jhunsi.
And, if there is more rush of devotees during main bathing days, the police forces would cover up to 100 kilometers of the borders where special parking lots would be developed. However, anticipating that over 10 crore people including around 60,000 foreigners would be coming Sangam city during Mahakumbh, the traffic police department has sought 1800 Mobile Barriers, 1200 Floroscent Jackets and Gloves, 350 Safety Bar Torches, 150 Loud Hailers, 700 Helmets and 1300 Gas Mask and 1,300 ropes to streamline traffic movements during day and night.
But more importantly, the traffic police department has asked for 25 Recovery vehicles with an objective to tow 'out of order' vehicles or streamlining traffic. Claiming that crore of pilgrims would be arriving Sangam city from far flung states of the country during Mahakumbh, traffic police need more recovery vehicles to clear the routes.
Suppose, if a small car or 10-tyres loaded truck all of a sudden goes out of order on route to Allahabad or near Sangam area, it would surely be disturbing the free flow of traffic and Recovery Van \ Cranes are immediately required to clear the routes.
DIG, Allahabad range, N. Raviendra" traffic police department will be equipped with all sorts of traffic equipments to streamline traffic during Mahakumbh'.

It is expected that five temporary big parking slots would be set up.
Traffic police officials pointed out that "we currently have three cranes including two for heavy vehicles and one for lighter vehicles ( for cars and jeeps) and more recovery vehicles are needed to manage the traffic.
Secondly, adequate strength of traffic policemen including 11 traffic inspectors, 45 traffic sub-inspectors, 150 traffic head constables and 800 traffic constables would be deployed in and around sangam area to streamline traffic.
