Budgam, Nov 5: The commuters in Chadoora town of Central Kashmir’s Budgam district are facing immense hardships due to the frequent traffic jams from the last couple of weeks especially at the peak hours.
The locals complained that the lack of parking lots in the market has led to the frequent traffic mess in the last couple of weeks while the concerned officials are acting as mute spectators with taking no action in this regard.
The local residents said that the commuters park their vehicles on the roadsides, leading to chaos and frequent traffic jams.
Locals said the illegal car parking by the commuters is leaving no space for the movement of pedestrians, thereby resulting in the frequent traffic jams.
They appealed to the concerned authorities to look into the matter and ensure smooth passage to the commuters.
Secretary Municipal Committee Chadoora Wajahat Kesar said recovery van being used to lift the illegally parked vehicles has developed some technical snag and is being repaired.
He added that the vehicle will be repaired within days and would be pressed once again on the roads to lift the vehicles, which will be found parked illegally on the roadsides—(KNO)
