Chaos due to sudden vehicular rush: SP Traffic

GK NEWS NETWORK

Srinagar, Feb 18: After a continuous spell of curfew and strikes for nine consecutive days, various roads of the City on Monday witnessed chaos due to long traffic jams.
 Long traffic jams were witnessed at vital roads including Lal Chowk, Jehangir Chowk, Hari Singh High Street, Maulana Azad Road and Dalgate.
 However, the problem was more severe at Jehangir Chowk intersection.
 “The traffic mess was caused as most of the Taxis particularly Sumos coming from Exhibition crossing side took u-turn near Jehangir Chowk fly-over towards Bakshi Stadium,” a group of stranded commuters said.
 Similarly, near the tourist hub Dalgate crossing, the space reserved for parking on passengers buses, was occupied by auto-rickshaws. “This led to long traffic jams at this busy road,” a commuter said.
 Due to shortage of manpower, traffic police heavily relies on traffic signals. “It has been observed that mostly passengers buses and auto-rickshaws jump the signal hampering smooth flow of traffic at intersections. The Traffic department should deploy its men at intersections to take action against the traffic offenders,” commuters said.
 When contacted, the SP Traffic Srinagar Haseeb-ur-Rehman said traffic jams were caused due to sudden vehicular rush.
 “After nine days, there was heavy vehicular rush and chaos on all roads in the city. However, we made all efforts to ensure smooth flow of traffic,” the SP said.
