YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-03-04 12:00:00 – Surat

The Federation of Surat Textile Traders Association (FOSTTA) and the Surat Textile Tempo Goods transport association have unanimously taken decision to ease traffic chaos on Ring Road textile market area that has increasing during the peak hours by stopping the delivery of unfinished fabrics to textile markets after 2 pm from March 10.

FOSTTA office-bearers said that they had to take a decision although, the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) and the city police department have been working in coordination to find out solutions to ease traffic chaos on Ring Road.

Last month, the civic body had demarcated the yellow parking lines for the tempo drivers coming for delivery and pick-up of the finished and unfinished fabrics from the markets. The tempo drivers have been following the parking rule, but there are many traders who are still parking their vehicles in the parking area dedicated for the tempos.

A meeting in this connection was held between the joint commissioner of police (crime and traffic) Khursheed Ahmed, where the FOSTTA office-bearers and the tempo association members unanimously agreed to enter the market areas for the pick-up and delivery of finished and unfinished fabrics between 10 am and 2 pm.

FOSTTA president, Manoj Agarwal said that they have decided to implement the new arrangement starting from March 10. All the tempowallahs will deliver and pick up the fabrics before 2 pm. Hence, there will be no congestion on the road during the peak hours in the evening.

Over 4,000 tempos are used for delivery and pick up of finished and unfinished fabrics every day. An estimated 2.5 crore metre of fabric is brought by the tempowallahs into the market on daily basis.
