Kalyan Dombivli Road Chaos
The Kalyan-Dombivli region has been short-listed as one of the 100 cities in India to be developed as a SMART City under the SMART Cities Mission. Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) is in the process of preparing a Smart City Proposal to compete in the nation-wide Smart City Challenge.
However, this designate ‘Smart City’ which is celebrating its ‘Traffic Safety Week’ has recent faced challenges with growing number of vehicles in the region and improper traffic management by the authorities. No traffic booths for traffic cops, lack of pavements for public and intermittent digging of roads have led to complete chaos at major junctions, chowks in this city.
ADC's Santosh Gupta captures the helter skelter situation at some of the regions infested with heavy traffic of the KDMC.
