TRAF­FIC SNARLS COM­MON

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

The Sion-Pan­vel high­way wit­nesses move­ment of ST, NMMT, BEST, Khapoli mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil buses, MSRTC’s luxury buses Shivneri and scores of other pri­vate luxury buses.

Bus stops have been built along the high­way, which has been ex­panded re­cently to curb traf­fic con­ges­tion, to pick and drop com­muters with­out cre­at­ing hur­dles in the smooth flow of ve­hic­u­lar traf­fic on the road.

In­stead of park­ing buses at des­ig­nated stops, sev­eral bus driv­ers il­le­gally park ve­hi­cles along the high­way to pick and drop com­muters.

Il­le­gally parked buses are likely to be hit by speed­ing ve­hi­cles on the high­way.

Be­sides this, il­le­gal park­ing of ve­hi­cles along the high­way also leads to traf­fic jam.

“A meet­ing will be held with bus driv­ers in this re­gard. They will be asked not to re­sort to mal­prac­tices like park­ing ve­hi­cles any­where on the high­way.”

RA­JEN­DRA PARDESHI, Pan­vel bus de­pot manager
