One way traffic a harassment of common public of capital complex

Naharlagun

One way traffic system in twin capital is not less than harassment to the people of twin capital city of state by the administration in day to day affairs of common people.

After the severe landslide in different parts of state and capital complex the capital district administration have issues various orders in the interest of the people service of capital complex including diverting and regulating of traffic in one way.

The movement of traffic was made from Itanagar to Naharlagun on NH-415 while coming shall be from via Jully road. Though the traffic regulation have been maintained by the local police with the help of para military forces at Papu Nallah who have to face the ire of common masses by those who have emergency of many nature like examination, form fill up, medical and banking during peak hours. Some of the commuters were complaining of physical assault at the try junction by the security personnel while trying to cross the stopping point at Papu Nallah.

The local have been demanding for opening of the two way traffic as the Highway department is doing nothing, restoration work is also not been done for last one week and the common masses have been facing lots of inconveniences as the Jully road which is in pathetic condition and jam like situation all along the way and even took lots of time to reach Itanagar and many a occasion the purpose for which they are going to Itanagar goes in vain. Few complaining that few are being allowed to pass through the said road and partiality is being maintained.

Another  system on barricading on NH-415 near C Sector Naharlagun on Borpani bridge is also adding lots of inconvenience and untold sufferings to common masses. It have been a source of accident and since last two days there have been several accident including the Tata mobile/Tara sumo/ Ambulance  and few others. The barricade which have been constructed have not been painted and do not reflect to the drivers in night hours and several accidents have taken place at the site for last two days as said by commuters.

The onlookers said that the capital is facing by waters and electricity crisis for more than a week and the barricade have disrupted the water supply system and the vehicle of Power and PHE including the staff bus of several department have been facing the same and there have been untold problems due to which some of staffs have not been able to go to their offices in time.

We do not object to the order but need system to be implemented keeping in view of the traffic signal and essential services  said another person who was driving a Tata mobile near the bridge.

There would be a big problems when there may any fire accident and the fire tender from Naharlagun will have to drive all along the Nirjuli, Doimukh, Yupia while the tender from Itanagar will also take enough time to reach the accident site so there is a need of some more precautionary measure to be taken up by the administration in such a situation.

If at all the Highway department is not able to paint the barricade they need to request the traffic authority to maintain a traffic and regulate near Borpani by which accident would be avoided.

DC Capital Prince Dhawan while talking to this daily said that the bridge expert form Guwaahti is arriving shortly and once the recommendation of the expert are taken into consideration a decision may be taken in the interest of the public service until please bear with the inconvenient. Though the height of the barricade is being raised.
