The Belgaum traffic police this morning as a part of their trial for smooth flow of traffic blocked all traffic to enter on to Mandoli road from 1st gate and Congress road at Ganesh Chowk.
People who want to go to Mandoli road, Guruprasad Nagar from Congress road or First gate will have to drive up Congress road and take the first Right turn but not at Ganesh Chowk First gate. On the same lines commuters coming from Mandoli road, Guruprsad Colony will have to take Second gate only to cross the railway line via Bose ground.
This is created a lot of chaos and even when the intention of the police is good seems like this is half hearted application of ideas.
Auto drivers are charging more than they now say they have to take a big diversion. People form Mandoli road will have to go via second gate only as no traffic is allowed towards Mandoli road (Union bank). What this will also do is increase the traffic flow at second gate which will create chaos.
People were seen crossing the dividers and going to the other side which is more dangerous.
