Civic issues, Features and Personalities of Navi Mumbai
Five kilometers away from the Panvel city, Akurli village is a developing and promising land for real estate. Already lots of homebuyers are interested in the area and many are even investing here. Currently, Akurli village is a hotspot for residential purposes, due to its proximity to Panvel city and accessibility through transportation. Last two years, a heavy population has flowed into the area for renting as well as buying homes. Many residential buildings and societies are emerged in the village. Residents in the area want strong police checking, streetlights, widening and repairing of roads in Akurli. At least authorities should place a sign board to show it as accident prone area.
Akurli and its next village called Chiple are divided with a river flowing in-between and a bridge connecting them. This bridge is narrow yet enough for the current population. But residents in the area points to a possible migration into the villages due to developments in Panvel city and then bridge will be narrow for such a population. Before the bridge in Akurli village there is a junction and two turning in different roads which are heavily prone for accidents. The Panvel-Matheran road from Akurli village has a heavy turning with no streetlights and steep slopes and woods on both sides. This road ends in a junction before bridge, where a road leads to Murbe Village starts. The road to Murbe Village also has a narrow turning in its beginning.
There are no sign boards or speed limits in these roads. Though the roads from three villages are narrow, offers no speed breaker but smooth traffic. This causes heavy speedy from all roads and often leads to accidents in the junction. Particularly, in evenings due to absence of streetlights causes accidents in the turnings. Road in the junction is also damaged in last monsoon. No repairing has happened in the roads till now. There is absolutely no police checking happening in the area. This has encouraged antisocial elements in the villages. Many drunken drivers are spotted in these roads. They have caused accidents with even slow moving vehicles.
Lijo Rajan, a resident of Akurli Village, said “The junction and turnings are truly nightmare for residents of Panvel. Already many accidents are reported from the area. Police should have checking in the area. Streetlights, Speed Breakers and wide roads are urgent need for the Village roads. Daily accidents are happening in the roads. Drunken drivers are another problem facing by these roads. Authorities should take immediate actions to solve problems of the problems and control accidents in the roads.”
Praveen Bankar, Inspector of Panvel Traffic Police, said “We will take all possible actions to stop any accidents in the area. Strong police patrolling will be there to control the drunken and illegal driving. Drivers also have to be careful about this place and be safe. Traffic police is working hard in helping public.”
