Civic issues, Features and Personalities of Navi Mumbai
The newly built bridge that passes over old Panvel has played a crucial role in decreasingtraffic and related problems in the city. It has made easy for vehicles to pass through Panvel to reach other areas of the state. Panvel has already become a junction and proclaimed as the corridor of Konkan region. This flyover had accelerated the movement of Panvel towards developments.
Speed breakers are installed in various parts of the bridge, to regulate the speed ofvehicles passing through. However speed breakers without signboards of any signals are becoming nightmare for vehicles.
Problems created by speed breakers are not new for Panvel residents, as numerous minor accidents are reported in the old Panvel areas. Speed breakers installed even near to police station, Tehsil office or municipal office does not have any sign boards or signals. But major accidents or problems are not reported from the old Panvel areas due to such speed breakers, as vehicles could not move fast here. But many minor accidents and major repairs are reported.
Speed breakers installed on the newly built bridge have heavy potential to cause majoraccidents. Bridge has provided smoothly escalated roads, where vehicles could movefaster. Totally four speed breakers are installed, all are located on turnings and curves of the bridge which is difficult to spot for vehicles. Particularly, during nights it is impossible to recognize the presence of speed breakers. It causes a potential threat for drivers.
Speed breakers that located in the turnings makes it more dangerous and minor accidentsare spotted by residents.
Imraj Pandiyan, a resident of Vashi who uses this bridge frequently, said “speed breakersinstalled in Panvel Bridge is nightmare for drivers. It holds a huge potential for major accidents, as no sign boards or signals are available. Drivers usually put a sudden break for such situation and could collide with other vehicles moving behind. Authorities should put some sign boards or signals to avoid accidents.”
Gladson Ydas, a resident of Panvel, said “speed breakers should be replaced immediatelyand take measures to decrease speed of vehicles moving through bridges. Speed breakersshould have sign boards and coloured properly to catch the eyes of drivers.
Maosaheb Patil, City engineer of construction, said ‘we will assure every step to be taken, in order to avoid accidents and well being of the society. We will take measures to maintain speed breakers in Panvel city.”
