Market related problems in Sec-1, Nerul

Nerul is a vital part of well planned Navi Mumbai city, faces plenty of traffic chaos and congestion in the streets in various parts due to illegal occupants. In the Sector- 1 of Nerul, which is famous of its Sunday market, is a constant victim of traffic congestion and illegal occupants. Market situated near to the area is constantly developing and finding the area as small and occupying the foot paths of sector 1. Due to these illegal occupations, the area has become more congested, especially during evening peak hours.

The market was first started to serve the needs of Shrivana villagers, but when Nerul city was designed, it came under the sector 1 and new settlements began to start in the area. The increasing number of settlements also increased the need for a better and big market for the area. But due to the limitation of area, vendors started occupying the footpaths and resulted in huge traffic. Hawkers are now increasing their area of market even to the junctions near to Sector-1, which may result in far reaching traffic problems.

Shenin Thomas, a resident of sector 1 says, “Market that situated in the premises is very much needed for the city dwellers, but it should not occupy the footpaths of city, as it creates unwanted congestion and traffic in the area. During the peak hours of evening, when everyone go out for shopping, it takes even 20 minutes to cross the Ganesh Mandir road.”

Steena Raju, a Visitor of market, complains “sec-1 is the most congested part of Nerul, as vehicles found it impossible to cross Ganesh Mandir Road. Nearby areas are affected by the market and related activites. The whole roads are filled with filthy remaining of vegetables and other wastes. Residents near to the area are suffering a lot due to activities of workers in the market.”

Gauri Patel, resident of sector 1 says, “Hawkers have to be shifted to a suitable place from here, so that the congestion will be less. On the market days, especially on Sundays the whole road near to market is filled with residents, who go out for shopping in the market. Vehicles are finding very difficult to pass the roads.

Some of the residents suggest some innovative solutions for the problem.  Rahul pundit, suggest that “by allowing good vegetable marketers to enter inside societies in particular days and for limited time can solve the problems for greater extent.

Mohan Ninave, Cidco PRO, informed to regulate the problem in the area, by controlling illegal hawkers and providing a better place for market.
