Heavy rain brings city to standstill – traffic jams

August 17th, 2009 No comments

Hyderabad
Aug. 17: When it rains, they say, it pours. And so it did on Monday, when the city recorded 11.23 cm rain, the highest so far this reason. There is more in the offing on Tuesday, Met officials said.
The rain brought the city to a standstill, leaving one person dead and almost all roads and low-lying areas waterlogged. Vehicles stalled on roads, setting off massive traffic jams, several areas suffered power cuts and trees were uprooted across the city.

One person died at Venkateswara Nagar Colony in Qutbullapur when he slipped into a drain that was covered by water. About half-a-dozen two wheelers got washed away near Rail Nilayam in Secunderabad. Tapovan Colony in Saroornagar, Madhavaram and surrounding colonies in Kukatpally got completely inundated. The GHMC considers only water standing at more than 6 inches in height and 50 metres in breadth as “stagnation.” It found only 20 such points in the city, while dozens of roads where slightly less water was standing were ignored.
The corporation sent out 20 teams comprising about 400 personnel to clear water logging, according to Mr Dhan Singh, the GHMC chief engineer. GHMC officials said that since this was the first heavy rain, not many low lying areas were affected.
Water Board officials formed emergency teams to clear the blocks on main roads to allow the rain water to flow out. “We are taking up diversion of water and our emergency teams have been formed with 10 people in each to clear the blocks,” said T. Krishna Babu, MD, Hyderabad Metro water supply and sewage board. The Police Control Room received an estimated 2,000 complaints between 6 pm and 9 pm, most of them on traffic snarls. The fire services call centre on 101 received several complaints too. Fire services officials sent seven fire engines to pump out water from residences but only two of them could reach the destinations.

Hyderabad needs well qualified traffic authorities

Ask a Hyderabadi about the likes and dislikes about Hyderabad. Likes may vary from Birla Temple, Golconda, Charminar, Hyderabadi Biryani and etc, but the dislike is very common “Hyderabad Traffic”. Before blaming traffic we should ask ourselves, how many times have we not broken the traffic rules? How many times have we stopped after the red light at signals? I have seen people rushing at signals after flashing the red light as well. If each of us starts obeying Traffic rules, then for sure Hyderabad Traffic won’t be like this.

Even the state Government should be blamed for Traffic. There are many reasons where state Govt. is held responsible. For example the number of 2 wheelers & 4 wheelers are increasing in the city, then why not the number of flyovers increasing? & There are many flyovers which were started 5 years ago & still under construction. All this is because of the poor traffic management.

Hyderabad needs well qualified traffic authorities, who are familiar with the policies to make traffic managed & convenient. Only then we can say Hyderabad is really developing.

But does any body thought of the reason why traffic has become a ………….
