Additional police commissioner one Vineet Goyal said on Friday that “Citizens are going through lot of turmoil due to this incident. But people are cooperating with us. With the shutting down of the Majerhat bridge, the vehicles that are coming from Behala have to cover more distance. As a result, pressure is increasing on the Durgapur Bridge and Tollygunge Circular Road . ”
He further said, if the citizens travel through the routes following Behala,Ramnagar, Garden Rich and finally to Esplanade then the traffic pressure may reduce. If 25 to 30 percent of the vehicles use this route then the traffic congestion can be avoided. He said that steps are being taken to fix the condition of High Roads to reduce the pressure.
