Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Sept 24: At a time when the movement of tippers on the airport road in the summer capital of the state has become a nuisance and cause of headache for administration a communication that would have solved the problem is gathering dust in an important office. The communication is pending in the office of Divisional Commissioner Kashmir for the past five months with no action whatsoever being taken so far. This is despite the fact that the matter is important and concerns the humans especially children.
On April 25, 2018, Superintendent of Police Traffic Rural Kashmir wrote a letter to Divisional Commissioner seeking directions to Roads & Buildings (R&B) department to reconstruct a damaged road barrier that stopped movement of tippers and trucks between two important areas of Srinagar district.
The areas mentioned in the communication are Rawalpora and Peerbagh. Both these areas are located adjacent to the new airport and old airport. As no action whatsoever has been taken so far the tippers and trucks move freely. This poses a constant threat to the thousands of persons more so the little ones.
"To stop the movement of heavy vehicles towards Airport (IG) road, a barrier was installed by R&B department at Bhagwanpora on Canal road linking Rawalpora with Peerbagh. Some unscrupulous elements have damaged the barrier with the result movement of heavy vehicles is possible towards the Airport road even during the day," wrote Superintendent of Police Traffic Rural Kashmir.
The communication has been shot under correspondence number CS/Imp/18/427-30 dated 25-4-2018. The communication further reads, "It is requested that R&B department may kindly be directed to reinstall the barrier so that unnecessary movement of heavy vehicles can be stopped towards the Airport road."
A copy of the communication was also shot to Inspector General of Police Traffic, Kashmir, Deputy Commissioner Budgam and Deputy Superintendent of Police Traffic, Budgam.
Contrary to the public expectations the communication was put in the back burner by the concerned authorities with the people left to suffer.
"The land mafia is very active in areas like Humhama, Peerbagh, Hyderpora, Sanat Nagar, Rawalpora and Wanbal. The mafia managed to sabotage the process of scuttling movement of tippers during the day and also during the night. The mafia has a reach to the higher levels in the administration and the same gets reflected on the ground," said sources while sharing views with Early Times.
Sources said that due to lackadaisical attitude of the people at helm the tipper and truck drivers continue to ply in the areas falling close to the airport road. There is no restriction on the movement of tippers and trucks with the common masses forced to feel the heat.
"Had the height barrier being reinstalled at Bhagwanpora the movement of tippers would have been stopped to a great extent. Since the authorities failed to do so one cannot expect the things to improve in this regard. There is a need to reinstall the damaged barrier and install some new ones as well," said sources.
