Commuters face a tough time on Monday due to massive traffic jam at Khanyar Chowk here.
Traffic came to a halt at the busy intersection around 5 pm. The problem was compounded by absence of traffic cops at the vital stretch. The intersection leads to Old City areas besides Hazratbal. "We were stuck in traffic jams for over an hour due to wrong parking by passenger buses. It is ironical that authorities have failed to depute traffic cops or install traffic lights at this vital junction," said a group of aggrieved commuters.
They appealed the SSP Traffic Srinagar Shagun Shukla to look into the matter and take measures to prevent traffic jams at the junction.
