Widening the underpass of NH24 near Shipra Mall
If the underpass is widened by half a metre on either side, the traffic congestion could be completely eliminated. With the present day technologies and capabilities in Civil Engineering, it will be possible to widen the underpass, I believe. Can residents of Indirapuram mobilize their opinion so as to get the underpass widened? Can the Civil Engineers in the Local Circles opine the possibility of widening the underpass? Can we approach the authorities to widen the underpass?
If the group can get this underpass widened, it will be a great achievement. Our aim should be widening the underpass by another one metre and construction of a separate very narrow underpass for pedestrians to use. more
@ Saurabh - Underpass does not have any designated lanes for a separate kind of vehicles. Even if the vehicles go in line irrespective of the nature the chaos/ problem will be solved and their will be saving of time as the main reason for the jam at Shipra underpass is the overtaking of the vehicles. If everybody comes in line then the main problem of shipra underpass will be solved. more
I walk 4 km every morning and evening, 5 days a week from Indirapuram to attend the office in NOIDA. I need only 30 minutes for reaching the office. If I take my car I need only 10 minutes to reach the office but in the evening I am caught in the traffic and I need one hour to cover this 4 km. So I always walk, which I like doing.
Everything depends on the thoughts of the people. If people can think the way you do, it will be wonderful. Who will initiate a movement that you have suggested? We only! But can we?
Another initiative I had thought was to make Indirapuram a plastic free zone. Every evening, I go to the vegetable market and persuade people not to use polythene bags to buy vegetables. But my Hindi is very poor and people do not like my advice. When I tell old people (carrying multiple plastic covers) that the surroundings were not dirty like this in our childhood, they look at me as a nuisance. Who wants to avoid the comfort and convenience of polythene bags? Who cares for the environment? Then what can I do for the environment?
Thanks Sumit Saraf for your thoughts on the subject. more
