SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Srinagar, Nov 3: A massive traffic jam stretching to over five kilometres was witnessed Saturday evening on the Parimpora-Narbal track of the highway putting thousands of commuters to inconvenience in the odd hours.
Witnesses said the traffic flow to and from Srinagar to north Kashmir remained badly affected for over two hours as vehicles struggled to move ahead.
Passengers stuck in the jam were all fire against the government. “For the past two hours I am stuck in the jam. Failing to take remedial measures over the years, the Government obviously forces women like me to reach home late,” cried a woman passenger who was travelling to Baramulla district by a Tata Sumo.
“The government has miserably failed to do anything expect holding meetings after meetings to review work on road widening in the area, which is in the middle of nowhere,” said another commuter.
When contacted the SP Traffic Srinagar Haseeb Ur Rehman said the traffic movement on the congested stretch slows down during peak hours particularly on weekends.
“But we are trying our best to regulate the traffic,” he said while monitoring regulation on the messy stretch.
