CIDCO setting up Traffic signals in New Panvel and Kharghar, but created confusion in New Panvel.

SAM_4486Electrical department of CIDCO started working on new traffic signal systems in New Panvel and Kharghar on March and these systems are expected to completely operational by end of the month. Traffic signal system installed in HDFC circle of new Panvel has got started working but made the traffic worse due to increased time. Signal system in Kharghar near to Three star hotel in sector seven expected to start by month end.

Bothe the areas have circle but witnessed traffic congestions particularly in evenings. Traffic signal in Kharghar was an important need and people were demanding it for a longer time. Vehicle got jammed during evenings, as vehicles passing inside the Kharghar node and vehicle crossing the node with Sion Panvel highway got clashed. The new traffic system is expected to manage the congestions and allow smooth flow of vehicles.

Traffic signal installed in HDFC circle of New Panvel has created unwanted traffic congestions in the city even in morning as complained by the residents. Traffic police has informed to take actions to manage the traffic signals well. HDFC circle of new Panvel had a normal free flowing traffic in day time, except evenings. But the newly installed traffic signal system is playing a negative role, because the timing of signal stops huge amount vehicles in one side and creates congestions and confusions in other junctions without signals. Due to increased timings huge amount of vehicles are accumulated and wasting time of many.

The junction that connects New Panvel with Old Panvel is most affected, as it doesn’t have a signal system. Huge amount of vehicles released from the HDFC circle came to this junction and creates traffic jams, which slowing the flow of vehicles. But earlier without the traffic signals, traffic of this junction was moving smoothly. Residents now demand traffic signal to be installed in other junctions or at least put Traffic policemen over there.

Renith Raju, a resident of Panvel said, “CIDCO has installed the traffic system without any prior experiment of observation. This has created confusion in the node. Earlier the traffic of new Panvel was free flowing without big congestions. But during evenings it had some problems. But the new signal system is not only confusing and time consuming but also creates traffic congestions artificially.”

Mohan Patil, senior police inspector of Panvel traffic, said “we will inform CIDCO who controls the Traffic signals and its timings. We also put traffic police in important junctions of Panvel to avoid any problems particularly in evenings.”
