Shillong, January 17 : Residents of Shillong are advised to prepare for disruptions in traffic flow on January 18th and 19th, 2024, as Union Home Minister Shri Amit Shah embarks on a two-day visit to the city. Security measures for the VVIP visit necessitate temporary traffic restrictions, including:
- Stoppage of vehicular traffic at various locations: Specific locations experiencing traffic blockages will be communicated closer to the visit date.
- Limited road access: During the VVIP’s movements, only one-way vehicular traffic will be allowed on the designated route. Overtaking and lane changes will be strictly prohibited.
- Emergency service priority: Emergency service vehicles, such as ambulances and fire trucks, will be granted unrestricted access and facilitated passage.
The inconvenience caused by these precautions is highly regretted by the Superintendent of Police, S. Nongtnger, IPS. East Khasi Hills District.
