Mumbai Traffic Police — Traffic jam at shilphata area & mumbra by pass

6 Reviews
Dear sir/madam,
This is to raise a complaint for the heavy traffic jam in shilphata area.
Shilphata area is a prime junction where it connects to,
1. mumbra
2. thane
3. kalwa
4. kalyan
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,
Ehtesham shaikh

This is high time that no one looks after such things. I am travelling all the way from Saki naka to Palava. since last two days it is taking 4 hrs to reach home. Pathetic. Someone please look into this.
Now daily Traffic Jam at Shilphata. Daily require minimum 30 min to 1 hr to cross shilphata 2km area
i shifted to palava last week and after seeing the traffic on shilphata junction i cant help but repent my decision... just thinking what happens when the rest of the 15-20k families take possession... this will be living hell on earth... the situation is so hopeless i can only laugh at it now.. no use posting these complaints, i searched for any proposed flyover or bridge over this area and found articles explaining since 2011 that some 45000 cr project or 21-km bridge is going to be constructed.. but it is 2016 and there is 0 sign of it.. i wonder why i bother searching these things up.. its better to accept the fate and start living this way... god help us all...
There are lot of Illegal shops on both sides of road near shilphata and kalyan phata junction. TMC is not bothered to take action against these shops.

Also lot of unused cars parked on both sides of the roads. This is adding more pain.

Now the possession of the newly constructed buildings near shilphata are nearing the traffic situation may worsen as the residents will use more private vehicles.

If TMC not takes proper action well in time life of the people live on that area will become hell.
hello everyone... this is my worst experience with traffic jam near the shilphata kalyan road .everyday we stuck at the same place for 15 mins minimum, its very tough time for us! i just wanna ask why these things are going to be continued from long time, who is responsible personally for such type of traffic related issues. The government had decided to make dombivali as a smart city . however, one suggestion must be consider from my side please tag a signal machine near shilphata mumbra circle, it will be helpful for all of us. As many times observed one way closed for long time & rest open many times so, its difficult way to wait for a one way vechile.
alone with our traffic police also can feel good with these traffic signal machines.
