Extreme Traffic Woes : Indirapuram
Dear Editor:Dear Sir, I am Abhay Pratap Singh, a resident of Indirapuram, Ghaziabad, U.P and I am writing to you directly because ‘write to us’ link of UP Traffic Police website http://traffic.uppolice.gov.in is not working for past many days. Sir, traffic condition at UP Gate Indirapuram (Y-Point) is in extremely pathetic and poor state for past 4-5 months’ time and no attention is being given to this problem at all. Traffic red-light is not working here for past 4-5 months. Why I am saying that ‘no attention is being given at all’ is because had any attention been really given by any of the concerned authorities, traffic red-light system at this highly critical point would not have been out of operation since so many days. I work in New Delhi and it is my 5 days routine of work-profile that I have to make up-down from Indirapuram to Delhi. I can very well recall that some 4-5 days before Dusshehra’2016 this traffic light become out of function and to my huge disappointment and frustration over system in my own home state month after month, it has become almost 5 months and not a single serious effort has been made by concerned authorities to look at excruciating pains common man and daily commuters are forced to bear at this traffic junction everyday 24x7. In the evening time 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, reaching at this point and crossing it finally, if one is coming from Delhi, is taking a minimum of 30 minutes time. Severe jam of vehicles is there even ½ kms before this UP gate red-light. Vehicles are just stand-still for 20 to 30 minutes. People come from Dwarka, Delhi or even from Gurgaon to this point is 1 hour and 20 or 30 odd minutes and merely crossing this red-light takes 30 minutes. It is extremely painful Sir. Extremely painful. Only 2-3 traffic police constables somehow manage the traffic, that too in slackly way. Traffic light system (operational) is far effective than manual controlling (that too at UP Gate). And still, despite of several complaint, several reminders, several tweets, this traffic light is not working. Same story is there in Morning hours. In morning time, even manual controlling is withdrawn and vehicle owners are perhaps supported to take their own call and try their own luck. It becomes like ‘Pass from this point’ if you can. All vehicles cut each other’s lanes to somehow cross this Y-point. Daily at least 10-12 vehicles just miss an accident and at least 4-6 vehicles are not that lucky and collide/dent with each other. Anger management becomes another issue. Sir, my sincere submission to you is why we are allowing this kind of traffic management system at such an important and extremely critical traffic point? What kind of problem is this that a traffic red-light is not being restored even after 5 months’ time? Some two months back I had written to UP Police traffic on Twitter about this unending problem, and their reply was ‘We have informed to Nagar Nigam, and it shall be restored to function shortly’. I spoke to them telephonically also and they informed me that ‘traffic light maintenance is under GNN and their maintenance contract with agency is expired, hence unless their contract is renewed, or re-awarded to some other agency, this problem would remain unsolved’. Two more months passed to their reply and now I am writing you, and still this traffic red-light is not restored. In 5 months’ time a traffic light maintenance contract couldn’t be renewed, re-awarded, state claims of huge leaps on way to super-development and the fact is that 4-5 months old grievance of its helpless common people goes unattended, unresponded. Sir, what kind state ours is, can clearly be understood once one comes ½ km before UP Gate from Delhi region in 6 pm to 9 pm time slot for all days of the week and year. Sir, please help the citizens, lakhs like me who suffer everyday due to fault of someone in administration. We also pay as much tax as a Delhite pays, still we are at perils and at mercy of administration for even basic facility like a proper traffic management system.
