Cops, residents unite to solve NCR traffic woes
A joint meeting of representatives of the residents’ welfare associations (RWA) of Mohan Nagar, Vijay Nagar, Vasundhara, Indirapuram, Kavi Nagar, and the Ghaziabad Traffic Police was organised on Sunday at Harsaon, Hapur Road, to resolve various traffic-related issues.

After complaining to the Ghaziabad Traffic Police to no avail for a long time, the meeting was held to deal with the matter once and for all. Around 100 representatives and residents of these areas were present, along with SSP Pashant Kumar, SS Yadav and other officials.

RWA Federation General Secretary SK Maheshwari said, ‘A pontoon bridge has already been constructed by the Ghaziabad Development Authority. But now there is a crying need for another pontoon bridge or a bailey bridge downstream of the existing Hindon Bridge, because crossing the Hindon has become a daily nightmare for all commuters.’

Residents raised the issues regarding the nuisance created by tempos as well. They requested the RTO to fulfill its earlier promise and prepare a manual for tempo drivers.

The officials have now set a deadline of 30 May in this regard. Other points raised at the meeting were parking of heavy vehicles at the side of GT Road, establishing traffic check points at Jassipura Crossing and Vijay Nagar Crossing and the issue of the Dhobi Ghat Railway Over Bridge.

The SP City, SP Traffic and the ARTO agreed to bring these points to the notice of the administration.

Meanwhile, SSP Kumar promised that he will show results on almost all points raised by the residents. Yadav passed instructions then and there to issue challans to wrongly-parked vehicles in Shipra City area and for the removal of heavy vehicles parked on either side of the GT Road in Sahibabad area.

He also took on the responsibility of streamlining the routes and to discipline tempo drivers within a month.
