Mumbai Traffic Police — Traffic jam at shilphata area & mumbra by pass
Ehehteshamshaikh2013 on Sep 22, 2016
This is to raise a complaint for the heavy traffic jam in shilphata area.
Shilphata area is a prime junction where it connects to,
5. ambernath, badlapur etc
6. khardi gaon, etc.
Now it has been a daily practice that we face a problem at the junction for traffic jam for minimum about 30 min. every other day, it’s a usual practice we face jam for 1 hour, 2 hours, yesterday 21/09/2016 it was for 4 hours.
Main point or locations,
1. the turning towards kalyan phata from the mahape shil road while going toward shilphata.
2. shil phata junction turning towards mumbra by-pass.
3. shil phata junction turning towards kalyan/dombivali.
The main reason which is quite evident visually is the heavy vehicle traffic. there seems to be no rules or regulations being followed for allowing heavy vehicles to pass (there is a time slot during night time in which they can move), or driving in only first or second lane. heavy trucks drive in the third lane along with rickshaws and two wheelers. pot holes are something in fate of mumbaikars so let’s not discuss or mention that. we have heard yesterday jam was due to closing down of vasai bridge for repair work, so all heavy traffic is being diverted here. but cant the heavy traffic be controlled, why no lane divided, why no service roads, why no fine on truck drivers, why no action against any authority, isn’t smooth running of traffic a part of job description?
The entire mumbra bypass is jam packed 24*7. if we are lucky, we somehow manage to drive in third lane through the potholes and reach our destination towards navi mumbai.
Thousand of peoples get affected in one single day because of this traffic jam in and around shilphata, but it seems no authority even bother to look into this or even come on site actually. most of the times, common commuters get down on the road and try manage this disastrously managed traffic.
What can happen in case an ambulance is stuck in this traffic at this junction (since its connecting so many main area), is something we have seen in many movies and even actually once in a while at this location.
I request a competent authority to look into this and revert back with a reply that till when are we suppose to face this traffic jams at shilphata, 1 week, 1 year or it’s our fate so start living with it.
I hope this complain would reach at some window and i could see some action taken.
Thanks & regards,
Ms const mangmt. be civil
