Storyline

After funds run out from a World Bank loan, work comes a halt on a seaway connecting the suburbs to South Mumbai, and authorities plan to modify it to end near Breach Candy with a temporary 30 foot flyover on Peddar Road. Yasin Patel - who lives in Northern Mumbai, exercises to keep fit and wrestle his way in local trains; sells stuffed toys on the footpath; and has a wife and three children, who often accompany him on his two-wheeled motorbike, but despite of traffic jams, has now purchased Tata's Nano. Veena Singhal, President, Peddar Road Residents' Association feels more investment is needed in public transportation rather than temporary flyovers. She feels trapped in a cocoon-like existence - from flat to a chauffeur-driven car to club - all air-conditioned. R.K. Das, the Vice-President of Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation is frustrated with bureaucratic delays, including missing nearly half of 69 trees due for re-location in a city of 20 million. With 1200 families ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

CP Bharambe must care for his own people in traffic who are suffering
9 July 2016 | by sat-88250See all my reviews

While I am fighting issue on our Mumbai traffic system. I saw by my own eyes how much suffering traffic cops go through in Mumbai while in abroad we have separate department for by law enforcement which does tagging, towing of vehicles who obstruct. They also look after abandoned vehicles. In Mumbai Traffic cops go through all jobs and it is too much for their size and number of vehicles we have. I also try to put this point with CP Bharambe besides car pulling we create a By law enforcement it will make big change I told him but he had no interest in listening as he was just waiting for me to leave while I was talking I was interrupted several times with his personal assistant for no reason and I was told to leave in short I was kicked out. CP forgot I was foreigner who traveled from so far because I care for Mumbai and I had no selfish motto but rather than appreciating my effort he looked at me as some silly civilian who just came to his office to bug him and same time he did not want to accept his challenge as he dose not care much for poor traffic cop who suffers on streets of Mumbai and I realized that. But time will change for Mumbai soon with new system will fall in place one day. As our environment is fully destroyed in Mumbai with no natural mangrove but CP Bharambe said to me environment is different issue and not of his concern while mind you pollution and environment goes hand to hand and traffic dose create pollution we all agree. Jai Hind.
