The residents, traders and others from Kapileshwar Road, Tangdi Galli, Bhandur galli, SPM road today gave a memorandum to ADC Praveen Kumar and spoke at length with him about the difficulties of construing a Railway Over bridge (ROB) at Kapileshwar gate.
They say, the Kapileshwar road was marked as 45 feet and widening to that extent was also done on one part of the railway gate. Everyone have constructed their buildings after the said road widening and now the new CDP plan makes the road a 80 feet road. And the residents will have to again demolish their buildings which is not fair.
The residents also said that the main cause of traffic jam at the gate is the way of flow of traffic and if the same is regulated correctly the entire traffic can be cleared even after the gate opens in 3 mins. Its only that each one must adhere to the traffic rules and only 2 wheelers and autos should be permitted and officially the road from Kapileshwar temple towards Bhandur Galli is a one way, but no one adheres to it.
The ADC said that he would call a meeting with the railway dept, BUDA and Corporation in the coming days where the residents will also make their stand clear.
