Changing the layout of yard 6 is one of the initiatives to avoid any interference between external trucks and
terminal trucks. Such interference may lead to congestion in the yard, causing accidents and reduce productivity. Hence the need to set new traffic plan to segregate the external divers from the terminal truck and
organize the yard.
To achieve these targets, new traffic plan has been set, jersey barriers has been fixed also traffic signs has
been designed to be fixed in the yard to segregate the terminal trucks works from the non-terminal trucks .
