There is no harm if the authorities relook into the proposal

Infrastructural development is mandatory for improving the quality of life which may at times put a section of the society to some hardship. Now-a-days the social and environmental aspect is the only constraint as the money and technical knowhow is readily available. At times even the environmental aspect has to be compromised where there is no alternative. The case in point is Mughal Road and Daksum-Dachan road for which the relief had to be sought from the Supreme Court of India.
The traffic intensity having reached an unprecedented level both in Srinagar and Jammu cities, a comprehensive solution has to be found. Slow traffic not only involves valuable time and costly fuel but also results in hazardous carbon emission which has become a global concern. In Srinagar, we need a solution for Dalgate-Nehru park road, Crossings at Firdous, Banquet hall, Regal chowk, Badshah chowk, MA bridge-Batwara road and in Jammu crossings at Bikram Chowk, Green Belt, Satwari.
The road width from Jahangir Chowk to Rambagh is reasonably good and with its widening having been taken up it will further improve. There is not much of a hold up of traffic on Jahangir-Rambagh road upto Rambagh bridge and with the installation of traffic lights improvements are bound to take place. The main bottleneck is the Rambagh crossing where all the Chanpora, Barzalla and Srinagar bound traffic gets piled up. This can be tackled if the left side of the road from Sericulture office is totally dedicated to Rambagh bound traffic both up and down and the right side of the road for Barzallah/Airport bound traffic both up an down. The traffic from Chanpora towards Barzalla will have free left turn and for the Barzallah-Chanpora a bridge on Doodganga Nallah with a road link can be constructed.
There is no harm if the authorities have a relook into the proposal and consult some of the civil engineers of the civil society before taking up the construction of the fly over in hand. At the same time compensation and rehabilitation should be the first priority.
