If solution is worse than the problem, then that’s what the over two month-old new traffic rules have created in Dimapur.
Traffic problems in Dimapur City is perennial and increased auto rickshaws and random parking only add to the problems.
N.L.Road (Church Road) is lined on both sides by main shopping centres besides being the artery for two prominent schools.
Areas where traffic congestion occurs are (a)Dhobinalla Traffic point- G.S.Road- DC Court road and Signal Colony Road; (b)Khermahal-MST-Notun Bosti junction and (d)Tragopan-Old Overbridge-NH 39 junction.
Under the new rules, N.L.Road (Church Road) became a one way-zone. Vehicles can enter only from Old Deluxe Point (Bata Charali) and exit at Holy Cross-Plaza Junction.
While making exit, vehicles from NL Road add to the clogged traffic at the junction as the road to Dhobinalla junction is always choked with vehicles. Even those making exit towards Circular Road from NL Road, get stuck by vehicles coming from Circular Road side to Dhobinalla junction.
When vehicles get stuck at the Holy Cross and Dhobinall junctions,it cascades to Khermahal junction, already over laden with trucks and all types of vehicles.
The problem could be eased if entry to NL Road is from Holy Cross junction and exit towards Old Deluxe Point.The rule for MP road can be reversed, meaning entry be from Old Deluxe Point so as to facilitate vehicles going to Kali Bari and Marwari Patty etc.
Entry to GS Road can be made from NL Road- New Market/ MP Road/Durga Mandir side and exit at Murgi Patty and Dhobinalla junction.
‘No Parking’ zones for heavy vehicles, autos, thelas etc at GS road should be strictly enforced to clear the road for vehicular movement. The MST road can be made one-way entry from Old Deluxe Point and exit at Khermahal Junction.
Since traffic jam at Golaghat Road-Tragopan Junction is a major problem, entry towards Eros Lane-private bus terminals should be one way for heavy vehicles till 6 p.m.Eros lane can remain a two-way entry and exit at Old Deluxe and Tragopan Junction only for small vehicles.
