Kolkata: The frequent number of bike accidents in Baguihati flyover has forced the Police think about the new steps to stop bike racing at the flyover in the middle of the night. Accidents have occurred in many flyovers in the city while racing with bikes.
On Sunday night one person was killed while racing in Baguihati flyover. The baguihati flyover is nearly two kilometer long with very few bends. The traffic moves at a very fast pace through the flyover even during the day. The speed increases with night. Sunday’s incident claimed the life of an youth named Raja Saha (24). Another youth has been admitted to hospital in a critical condition.
The top officials of the Bidhannagar Commissionerate have met to find out a solution to the problem. Additional DCP (Traffic) Shivani Tiwari said that mobile vans patrol the area at night. After the incident the mobile vans will be patrolling the area more frequently. Along with that speed breakers will be inducted at the point of entering and leaving the flyover.
