In Pimpri-Chinchwad area, lack of pedestrian safety measures and poor implementation of traffic regulations are troubling citizens to face traffic problems. Even widening of roads has not helped to the citizens, says Paryavaran Sanvardhan Samiti, a group dealing with environmental issues in Pimpri-Chinchwad.
The Samiti’s president Vikas Patil said that at all busy junctions, autorickshaws are seen parked in a haphazard manner resulting in traffic congestion.
Patil, who has sent a letter to the municipal commissioner, said that the civic body and traffic police should identify proper space for autorickshaw stands. Also, there are no dedicated parking lots for private, tourist and company buses or heavy vehicles along the roads in the area.
