Srinagar: Commuters have been facing a tough time due to closure of intersection at MA Road for Smart City works.
The commuters said that closure of the main intersection at MA Road near Sangarmal hampers their movement. The commuters said they have to travel several hundred meters unnecessarily to make a U-turn near J&K Bank headquarters.
The commuters said that the commuters coming from Downtown areas towards Lal Chowk are having a tough time due to the issue. They said it has also created traffic congestion during peak hours.
“These are important intersections connecting MA Road, and its closure leads to traffic congestion at peak hours as vehicles bound to Lal Chowk from Downtown have to make U-Turn near JK Bank headquarters. We are already suffering due to road closures and diversions following road projects in the city centre,” said Abdul Hamid, a commuter.
Commuters said authorities at Srinagar Smart City must look into the issue and avoid unnecessary closure of roads.
