Main Road near Ram Mandir
Jamshedpur : Much to the relief of the people one of the barricades put up in the intersection on the busy Bistupur Main Road was removed.
In a bid to streamline traffic movement in Bistupur, the district traffic police had closed two intersections on Bistupur Main Road forcing people to take extra journey to move.
The commuters who used to take a turn from the Bistupur area area through the intersection located either in front of the Hero Honda Showroom or Ram Mandir were forced to take a U-turn from round about near the Voltas Building instead.
On Friday a delegation of SCCI had met the senior superintendent of police, Amol V Homkar and had requested the latter to get the barricade removed highlighting the problems being faced by the commuters and also the local shop-keepers.
The SCCI president, Suresh Sonthalia has thanked the SSP, Homkar for the initiative.
Meanwhile, the Singhbhum Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) has, lodged a strong objection before the district administration opposing the move of the traffic department.
Not only the people residing at the South Park, but also the commuters from other localities of the city will also heave a sigh of relief at the sight of getting the barricade vanished,” said the SCCI president.
Moreover the traffic department had blocked a gapping facing the Dena Bank building, the point of stretch through which students of Jamshedpur Women’s College and KMPM Inter-college use for passing from one side of the Bistupur Main Road to another for catching auto-rickshaw or mini-bus or for going to market place.
The gapping has been blocked with a steel barricade. The people, especially the car and bike owners used to cross through the gapping for reaching from one side of the Bistupur Main Road to another side for visiting the office or banks or the market place having parked their vehicle on the parking lot.
Apart from this steps are also being taken to install barricades in front of shops.
The Singhbhum Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) said that the move of traffic police to close one after another intersection and gapping was not only damaging the interest of the traders’ community, but also putting the common men in trouble.
