Traffic police promises to resolve the problem and post a traffic constable to manage traffic outside the Park View Residency towers, if RWA makes a formal complaint.
Absence of a traffic constable to manage traffic on the 35-feet road in front of Park View Residency is leading to traffic coming to a crawl. The immediate impact is on residents as they face inordinate delays in commuting.
Residents of the residential high-rise towers complain that their children who used to return from school at 2.45 p.m. earlier are coming home at 4 p.m. This means they go hungry till they reach home.
The traffic snarls are due to renovation work on the road, half of which is dug up, that makes vehicular movement extremely slow. What ideally used to take 20minutes now takes over an hour to commute the small distance due to traffic jams caused by a free for all on the road.
“The issue is not of the road repair, but the work has stopped in the middle and there is no management of traffic. School children who used to come home by 2.45 now reach by 4 pm. They stay hungry in buses and even if they want to use toilets they have to control and wait till they reach home,” said Deepika Nishchal, a resident.
It has been nearly one month since road repair and renovation began.
“Especially since road is being renovated, there should be regular deployment of traffic police on the stretch to manage traffic,” said H C Kumar, President RWA Park View Residency.
Senior traffic police officials said they were unaware of the situation.
“Once the RWA report the issue, we will take necessary steps to resolve the problem,” said DCP Traffic, Simarjit Singh.
In the meanwhile, residents continue to battle traffic snarls.
