Noida: Residents of Noida, especially office bearers of Janshakti Seva Samiti (JSS), an organisation of socially active citizens, on Thursday met Ravindra Vashisht, police inspector (traffic), over frequent traffic jams near City Centre Metro Station.
They complained that the service lane near the station are encroached by auto and taxi drivers leading to congestion and thereby causing immense inconvenience to the commuters during peak hours. Hence, traffic jam has become a recurring phenomenon on the road.
AN Dhawan, chief patron of the Samiti, said that vendors and e-rickshaws also add to the woes of the commuters as most of the space on service lane is occupied by them. Buses also ply on the same adding to the chaos.
Ravikant Mishra, president of the Samiti, said that drivers of commercial taxi operators park their cars on the main road resulting in traffic jams at different road junctures in the city. Auto rickshaw drivers park their vehicles on road near residential sectors, he complained.
He said, ''We have requested the police officer to initiate appropriate measures to solve these problems. Steps should be taken for monitoring them as the load of motor vehicles on roads is increasing every passing day. If an appropriate action is not taken now, it will result in bigger problem.”
