Viman Nagar, 6th June 2023: A video captured by Veteran Wg Cdr A Banerjee on Sunday evening has highlighted the severe traffic congestion and chaos that plagues the Datta Mandir Chowk in Viman Nagar, Pune. The footage, taken at 8:00 pm on June 4, 2023, sheds light on the traffic nightmare that unfolds at this bustling junction between 6 pm and 10 pm, even on weekends.

The traffic control lights at this critical intersection are mysteriously left switched off during Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings. To compound the issue, the presence of Traffic Branch police constables, who are usually stationed at the junction throughout the week, is noticeably absent on these crucial nights. As a result, navigating a mere 10-meter distance in the chaotic snarl can take up to 40 minutes, causing immense frustration and inconvenience for commuters.

What exacerbates the situation further is the proximity of the Police Traffic Branch office, located just 150 meters away at Royal Towers, as well as the Vimantal Police Station, a mere 100 meters from Datta Mandir Chowk. Despite these nearby police facilities, the traffic indiscipline and lack of enforcement at Viman Nagar continue to plague residents, leading to significant harassment and wastage of valuable time.

The residents of Viman Nagar are left to contend with the inefficiency and lackadaisical attitude of the Traffic Control Branch, which has failed to address the persistent traffic issues in the area. The absence of functioning traffic lights and the lack of police presence during peak hours have created a situation of chaos and disorder, causing immense inconvenience to the residents.

Concerned citizens are now calling for immediate action from the authorities to rectify this dire situation. They emphasize the urgent need for proper traffic management and enforcement during peak hours, particularly on weekends when the congestion reaches its peak.

The video captured by Wg Cdr A Banerjee has shed light on the appalling state of affairs at Datta Mandir Chowk, serving as a wake-up call for the Traffic Control Branch and the local authorities. It is hoped that swift measures will be taken to address the traffic chaos, restore order, and alleviate the sufferings of Viman Nagar residents.

Efficient traffic management is crucial for any thriving city, and it is imperative that the concerns of the citizens are heeded to ensure smooth and hassle-free commuting experiences for everyone in Pune.

The residents of Viman Nagar now eagerly await a proactive response from the Traffic Control Branch and the authorities to resolve this long-standing issue and restore order to their daily lives.
