The UP government has issued directives for smooth and hassle-free organisation of Formula 1 Indian Grand Prix 2012, to be held on Buddh International Circuit (BIC) in Greater Noida from October 26 to October 28. The first edition of Formula 1 Indian Grand Prix was held last year.
Infrastructure and Industrial Development Commissioner (IIDC) Anil Kumar Gupta today held a meeting in Lucknow to review the preparations for the 2012 F1 Indian Grand Prix.
According to a press release from IIDC, a presentation on traffic, transport and security for the international motor race was made by the organising committee in the presence of Gupta, senior officials of Greater Noida Authority and police.
Gupta said, "All efforts should be made to ensure easy access and comfortable experience of spectators, providing medical facilities and greater number of traffic marshals with adequate security arrangements."
He added that educating the public about routes and facilities available, tickets, parking area and 'dos and don'ts' was very important, so sports organising committee should give advertisements in newspapers and publicise relevant information through banner and posters.
Officials from the sports organising committee were asked to coordinate with Noida-Greater Noida Authorities to enable free traffic flow through this route.
