Early Times Report
Poonch, Nov 17: Common people and businessmen here are amazed over mismanagement of traffic in the town resulting in frequent traffic jams which in turn has become a source of nuisance for the locals.
A group of businessmen said people are facing lot of inconvenience due to traffic congestion in and around bus stand. "Flow of traffic at Surankote bus stand and main bazaar is increasing day in and out but the tehsil administration has so far failed in providing relief to the people from this menace", they said and added that due to non-availability of an alternative route, increasing traffic is adding to the miseries of the masses.
"Even police have failed in properly managing the traffic which results in long irritating jams on day to day basis" locals said and added that huge rush of mini buses, Tata Sumos , buses and mini tempo travellers is adding to the mess as there is proper parking place for them available in the town.
"Few cops deployed in the area hardly bother to manage the traffic and as a result large number of vehicles is parked haphazardly which results in long jams", they said and added that the business community is facing the brunt as bus stand and main road are located adjacent to each other.
"Due to traffic congestion people and even pedestrians avoid coming to this place which in turn is affecting our business", they rued. Social Worker Akash Malik alleged, it is difficult to pass through the bus stand area during day time because of unmanageable traffic.
Overloading is also going on unbeaten in the area which often results in accidents. Most of the resident of the Surankote demanded that there should be proper system to manage traffic so that the people freely pass through main bazaar area without any convenience. The people also demanded that administration should check overloading regularly to save precious lives.
