Nashik is witnessing heavy traffics these days. Taking this major issue into consideration the city police have decided to open the three flyovers from Indiranagar Jogging Track to Garware T point on Mumbai-Agra highway. As there was a ban for two-wheelers, three-wheelers, tractors and bicycles on these newly constructed flyovers it created a huge traffic chaos on the service roads. The ban was due to the road opened between Pimpalgaon and Gonde with the completion of widening of roads.
The ban was decided on Lekhanagar flyover, Indiranagar underpass, Ranenagar underpass, Pathardi flyover, Garware flyover and the elevated corridor from Indiranagar to K K Wagh Engineering College. However, the ban will still continue on the stretch of the elevated corridor from Indiranagar jogging track to K K Wagh Engineering College.
The two-wheelers coming from Mumbai can use the stretch of the highway till Indiranagar jogging track. Whereas, the workers going at locations such as Ambad industrial area or to locations towards Mumbai will have to opt for service roads from Ambad to Indiranagar.
On this new permit ACP Sanjeev Thakur informed, “A large number of people traveled from Dwarka to Ambad MIDC on two-wheelers, but due to ban, the rush of industrial workers and employees were felt significantly on the service roads. Therefore, it was decided to open one of the stretches of the flyovers for two-wheelers”.
Green signals to 2 wheelers on flyovers will add some ease to the citizens and will also reduce some traffic chaos at the highway and service roads.
