The city police have identified nine crowd gathering areas, 13 important junctions, 66 places of worship and beefed up their presence there to enforce Covid protocols.

“Adequate police personnel will be deployed on Avinashi Road, Trichy Road, Pollachi Road, Thadagam Road, Palakkad main road, Mettupalayam Road, Race Course Road, Cowley Brown Road, Marudhamalai Road, Sathyamangalam Road, RG Street, Variety Hall Road, Flower Market Road, DB Road and other important roads to control traffic movement on the New Year eve,” it said.

Police have identified 45 traffic checking points in the city and would press 44 bike beats and 23 mobile patrol units into service to cover important and sensitive areas. In all, 1,050 police personnel would be deployed on New Year bandobast duty.
