Civic issues, Features and Personalities of Navi Mumbai

Follow signboards: Just joking.

 1328682099_312323389_1-Pictures-of--sign-boards-advertising-boardsIn Panvel city, Signboards or warning boards are a joke for outsiders, as its residents chose to ignore and disrespect such materials. Panvel Municipal Council, the governing authority of Panvel city, has put up different warning boards and signboards to control the population and regulation of traffic in the city. Many of such Traffic sign boards, No Parking boards or Warning boards for Non hawkers zone are never been followed by its residents. When residents want city authorities to manage such boards and encourage residents follow rules, city authorities want residents to be more sensible and follow rules.

Opposite to the statue of Shivaji in Shivaji Chowk placed a board reading non hawkers zone. But this place has become the most congested due to the ever increasing number of hawkers just near to the warning board. Recently the warning board is also covered by a hoarding of a major political party.

Warning boards to avoid putting waste in public places and water resources are available in different parts of the city. But we spot more wastes just near to these warning boards only. More filthy conditions are the ponds and water resources. Even after repeated cleanings, warnings and putting up boards ponds are made filthy by throwing waste into it.

To ensure the smoothness of traffic, PMC has put up different warning and sign boards in different parts of the city. PMC has announced the most congested areas as non parking zone and put out boards for this. None of the any parking boards are respected or followed by the travellers, as it becomes usual to spot vehicles under such boards. Just in front of Panvel city police station and Tehsil office is announced as a non parking zone and placed warning boards.

From one side of the road in front of Police station is one way, but remains only in papers. Pravesh Nished (NO Entry) boards are completely ignored by residents. Residents argue that if travellers follow rules and the traffic problems in the city will be solved. But some need authorities to ensure critical infrastructure which makes residents comfortable with rules.

Gladson Ydas, a resident of Panvel, said “It is shameful that resident sand travellers  in our city is not following rules and regulation of authorities, even after putting enough warning and sign boards in the city. This irresponsibility will lead to our own destructions. Authorities should also ensure the sign boards and warning boards are placed in the right place. And it s not the mere regulation, but authorities should also ensure the critical infrastructure.”

Shantaram Upaye, deputy administrative officer of PMC, said “we have placed enough warning as well as sign boards to ensure the safety of travellers and residents of the city. Residents should ensure that they are following rules and warnings properly.”
