Residents complain of heavy traffic

: Bhatt Road at West Hill Chungam in the city has been made one-way for heavy vehicles, including trucks and goods lorries.

Residents have been complaining about continued disturbance and hardship owing to heavy traffic of trucks and goods carriers on the narrow road.

There are four active residents' associations in the locality.

Residents of the area had resorted to agitations, including road blockades in the recent past in the area under the aegis of the Surabila Resident's Association, to press their demand.

According to the residents' association sources, it was the Assistant Commissioner of police (city traffic), who sanctioned their demand.


As per the order, heavy vehicles would not be allowed entry to Bhatt Road from the Beach side.

The jubilant residents on Sunday erected a board on both sides of the road announcing the traffic police order making it one-way for heavy vehicles.
