One of the oldest markets in the city, Sadar Bazar, may soon be congestion-free as the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) has set the ball rolling to regulate parking in the area.
“I have drawn out a blueprint to solve the parking woes here. I will put up the plan for discussion in the next House meeting,” MCG Mayor Nirmal Yadav told HT.
Haphazardly parked vehicles in Sadar Bazar have reduced the popular market to a maze of overcrowded narrow lanes.
“We have a plan to regulate parking in the market and we will implement it soon. We may be able to come up with a solution in seven days’ time,” said Veena Hooda, joint commissioner, MCG.
The commercial area, also known as the Gurgaon market, is located at a stone’s throw from the city bus stand. Given its location, residents in the vicinity are the worst-affected amid the perpetual congestion.
Ramesh Vashishtha, who lived in the area for nearly ten years, finally moved to Sector 15 to escape inconveniences caused by erratic parking.
“The place is a cacophonous maze of lanes and vehicles. Negotiating them is a daunting task. One needs to be careful while driving here all the time to keep a safe distance from automobiles meandering through the traffic, especially two-wheelers,” Vashishtha said.
