The Krishna district police have installed at least 16 blinkers that function with solar power in strategic areas along the national highways of Kolkata-Chennai and Vijayawada-Machilipatnam to avoid road mishaps and strengthen traffic signalling system.

In an official release, SP Sarvasresth Tripathy said 14 blinkers had been set up on the Kolkata-Chennai national highway that passes through the Krishna district. The police also erected more than 300 wooden poles, to indicate that a location was a ‘danger zone’.

They conducted a clean and green drive along the eight km stretch of the Krishna river embankment road between Vijayawada and Thotlavalluru police limits. All the unwanted growth, on either side of the embankment road, had been removed, ensuring a clear way for the vehicles to proceed on the road.

On Friday, police personnel took out a bike rally by wearing the helmet to create awareness on the use of the headgear in the limits of various police stations.
