Tuesday, 13 March 2018 | PNS | Dehradun-
The commuters on the roads in the State capital had a harrowing time as the traffic was thrown out of gear on Monday. It has been reported that many red signals at crossings were not working. District traffic officers said that thousands of people hitting the roads to reach workplaces after the weekend was over compounded the on the road ordeal further.
Meanwhile, the cars were either stuck bumper to bumper or just crawled at noon. The places which bore the maximum brunt were Survey Chowk, Clock Tower, Darshan Lal Chowk, Gandhi Road, Tehsil, Doon Hospital, Araghar, MKP College Road, Court Road, Prince Chowk and Saharanpur Chowk.
A senior police officer said that around 125 parking venues in the State capital have been set up, but the people hardly are parking their vehicles there. “People should be made aware of such parking venues by the district police and other agencies so that commuters park their vehicle there regularly,” said a commuter. Umesh Bisht, a commuter, said that he daily went to a school at Dalanwala from Rajpur to pick his daughter. “I got stuck midway and remained so for long as the traffic pileup was huge,” he complained. Aman Singh, another commuter, said that the traffic movement from Dilaram Chowk to MKP Road, Court Road to Gandhi Road was irritatingly slow. “I got late for the office which is at ISBT,” he said. Amit Kumar, a college student, said that he had faced traffic snarl at Saharanpur, Prince Chowk, Tehsil Chowk, Clock Tower, Rajpur Road and Survey Chowk.
