Traffic Jams irk HMT residents
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 11: The HMT residents have complained that frequent traffic jams in the area during the peak hours have made their lives miserable.
A delegation from the area told Greater Kashmir that jams on the highway between Parimpora and Narbal were causing inconvenience to the commuters.
“The traffic jams occur usually between 9 AM and 11 AM and for another two hours from six in the evening,” the residents said.
“Due to traffic jams the employees can’t reach their work places in time, students too miss their classes,” they added.
According to the residents, Shalteng crossing on the highway was the “most dangerous spot as police can’t control traffic there due to its high volume.”
“Under centrally sponsored road widening schemes many structures have been brought down on both sides of the road, but further work has come to a grinding halt for unknown reasons.”
The delegation members demanded that the work on the road widening be resumed and finished at an earliest so that the residents don’t have to face more inconvenience.
Pertinently some days back the Divisional Commissioner Dr Asgar Hassan Samoon directed the concerned agency to complete the work within a month.
