The Mumbai Regional Congress Committee president Sanjay Nirupam has appealed to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to convene an all-party meeting to discuss huge traffic snarls caused by the ongoing construction of the Metro line between DN Nagar and Dahisar. In a letter to Fadnavis, the city Congress chief said that he was not against the work being carried out which will to improve Mumbai’s infrastructure but hourly traffic snarls along the entire stretch have elongated a simple 30-40 minutes journey to a two-and-a-half hour ordeal.Nirupam said the traffic has also jacked up commuting cost in areas seeing maximum congestion. These include Infinity Mall, Inorbit Mall Meeth Chowki, Goregaon, Charkop and Borivali West. Double parking adds to the woes, he noted, adding, “The traffic police is not taking any action to solve this problem.”Nirupam said due to ongoing construction it has become impossible for residents to manage even a good night’s sleep. He iterated that the CM needs to convene meeting with representatives of all political parties and officers from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, traffic police and Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority to ensure a comprehensive solution to end these problems.
