Growing number of vehicles on Andaman Roads has made things difficult for people of these islands. Almost everyday Port Blairians witness traffic Jams in main bazaar area as, everyday more and more vehicles are entering in Andamans but roads are same, as they were nearly two decade back.
Even though the road from Ganesh Temple to Ratnam market has been made one way for three and four wheelers, but still one can see that during evening hours, it becomes impossible to cross the road with even two wheelers.
During opening and closing of schools, all hell breaks loose in Port Blair roads.
“The city roads were never designed to bear such a load of traffic and hence we must think of some alternatives. It seems flyovers are the best option,” said a prominent citizen of Port Blair.
Traffic chaos is the most obvious side effect of urban sprawling in any city of the world and it seems Port Blair is now suffering from this side effect.
Passing though the city roads, Port Blairians also face nightmare especially during office hours and in the evening when people are going home.
This is high time for Administration to get up from deep slumber and plan things keeping future in mind and construct atleast half a dozen of flyovers.
