Irked commuters urge MP to act on congested road : DNA

Constant traffic jams in the internal lanes of Krishna Nagar are now getting on the nerves of east Delhi residents. In the absence of traffic lights and proper policing, the road from Geeta Colony to Krishna Nagar is always blocked, troubling the commuters on a daily basis.
“There is no red light in the area. Hardly any traffic police is deployed on the route. It is extremely difficult to commute on this road. It takes almost an hour to cross it,” said Mayank Sharma, a commuter.
According to residents, five-six ATMs, banks, and grocery stores are located on the street. Most people come to these places in their own vehicles, which they park on the road. “There is no space left to drive on this road because of these parked vehicles,” said Minakshi Pandey, a resident.
The locality’s residents have also written a letter to MP Mahesh Giri, requesting him to intervene in the matter. The MP has further shot off a letter to the Delhi Traffic Police in this regard.
BS Vohra, President of the East Delhi RWAs Joint Front Federation, said: “We have been requesting the authorities to look into the matter. At times, even ambulances get stuck in the traffic. Such emergencies can arise anytime and we need a solution for this.”
Meanwhile, according to sources, the traffic police are working to make the stretch jam-free. “We are aware of the situation. Work is being done to improve the traffic system on the road,” a senior Delhi Traffic Police officer said.
