Do you think build­ing more roads and fly­overs can solve Delhi's traf­fic con­ges­tion prob­lem?

Down to Earth - - LETTERS - http://www.face­­in­dia

What Delhi, and most other big Indian cities need, is af­ford­able, con­ve­nient and in­te­grated trans­porta­tion sys­tems. Per­son­nel work­ing with pub­lic trans­porta­tion sys­tems and peo­ple us­ing them need to work to­gether. KOLIPAKA SUDEEP KUMAR I think it is wrong to blame just or­di­nary peo­ple for the mess. It is a fact that peo­ple are forced to use their own ve­hi­cles since the pub­lic trans­porta­tion sys­tem is not con­ve­nient. SRIKANTH GARLAPATI Build­ing more roads is not the an­swer. The root of the prob­lem is fam­i­lies own­ing more than one car. It has be­come more of a sta­tus sym­bol. Is is a time to cap the num­ber of cars a fam­ily can own. RA­JNI LAL There should be re­stric­tions on large, pri­vate ve­hi­cles, ac­cord­ing to the ca­pac­ity of the en­gine. There is no space for 1, 000 cc cars in a city. RAN­JIT DEVRAJ
