Absence of policemen and construction work, pushes Cyber City into traffic chaos
Traffic condition in the city is deteriorating day by day. Constant traffic jam is a common sight at Cyber City. Especially in the evenings, the traffic chaos on the poorly maintained roads reaches its peak between 5pm and 7am with two-wheelers, cars, auto rickshaws and cycle-rickshaws all competing for space on the 2 km stretch.
Huge constructions also form a part of the narrow roads.That is a major reason why vehicles going towards Udyog Vihar from Cyber City, takes the sector route, where makeshift divider is made with stone barricades. The design of this road makes the vehicles, who takes an U-turn to cut across a road over weighed with others mergers.
The situation gets very critical with vehicles, especially two-vehicles easily moving from one to other side. It could lead to fatal accidents. Apart from this, the absence of traffic police creates indiscipline on the road.
As per a timesofindia.com report, Bharti Arora, joint commissioner of police, said it was not possible to deploy policemen everywhere. ''We have a 367-strong force while the sanctioned strength is 1,000.'' On this occasion, Rohit Malik, director of DLF Estates, said, ''We are already in the process of widening the stretch and underpasses are being built to ease traffic by September.''
But HUDA executive engineer Hari Dutt Sharma, who is in charge of repair and maintenance of roads in the city and working jointly with DLF on the Golf Course Extension Road Project said that they have inspected the road recently. Until the construction work on the stretch is over they plan to do patch work on the road for making the motorable temporarily within the 10 days.
