Traffic chaos in JK irks MLCs
Jammu, Mar 28: Cutting across party lines, the members in Legislative Council today expressed resentment over increasing traffic mess in the capital cities of the State.
The members attributed the problem to inadequate development compounded by rising number of vehicles and poor regulation due to lack of adequate number of regulating staff.
They particularly pointed towards negligible progress on the infrastructure development to ease traffic in Srinagar and Jammu cities, including construction of flyovers, bridges and road widening works during last three years.
A clubbed question of Khalid Najeeb Suhrawardi and Muhammad Ashraf Mir set in the debate with the members both from the opposition and treasury benches expressing deep concern over the worsening traffic problem in the urban centers.
Earlier, Minister for Rural Development Ali Muhammad Sagar on behalf of Minister for Home said that the Government has taken numerous steps by way of widening of roads, construction of bridges to provide adequate road connectivity, besides the steps taken by the traffic department to ease out the traffic jams during peak hours.
Taking note of the public problem and concern of the entire house, the Chairman Legislative Council Amrit Malhotra directed the Government to make available adequate traffic personnel on different routes in summer and winter capitals of the state to ensure better traffic regulation.
