Narrow roads cause inconvenience, frequent traffic jams
Islamabad (Anantnag), Jan 10: The narrow roads in this south Kashmir town are causing tremendous inconvenience to the people besides causing frequent traffic jams.
The roads network in the town is below par. “Though the traffic has increased manifold but the roads remain to be same,” the residents rue.
They said the unabated encroachments on the road sides, state land and even the footpaths have made the things worse.
“Due to the ill planning of the government there is a lot of overcrowding and congestion in the town as illegal constructions including shops continue to thrive with the tacit support of the municipal council authorities,” said Zahoor Ahmad, a resident.
He said that it is even difficult for the pedestrians to walk through the narrow roads of the town not to speak of the vehicles. “Not a single day passes when you cannot see the traffic mess everywhere in the town putting the passengers as well as commuters to inconvenience,” he added.
Residents of the town are of the opinion that government should go for widening of some of the important roads of the town viz, Mattan Chowk-Dangerpora road , Cheeni-Chowk-Janglat Mandi road , Janglat Mandi- Donipwa road , Reeshi Bazar road , Iqbal Market road, Kadipora-Sarnal road and Malakhnag-Sherpora road to overcome the problem of frequent traffic snarls.
“The government and district administration should launch a drive against the encroachers,” they added.
Residents have also demanded shifting of the Mini Bus Stand Terminal Mattan Adda to General Bus Stand to avoid traffic mess in the interior areas of the town.
Authorities should also take on the illegal sumo stands and shift them at a proper place,” residents said.
They suggested that all the Sumo stands of the town can be relocated to Mattan Adda terminal and the available stand land behind Wazir Bagh.
