If it was traffic jams with serpentine queues of cars at roads on December 5 in Bandra, Mahim and Shivaji Park area, commuters can expect more such trouble tomorrow with many more traffic snarls expected at various places as more and more people are expected to pour in from Tuesday night.
Roads like LJ Road, Mahim, that are relatively less choked otherwise will witness heavier traffic because of the coinciding of three events-the 50th death anniversary of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar, the Mahim, Urs and the Wednesday Novena at Mahim Church.
Further, the chaos would be compounded because of roads like Ranade and Kataria will be closed. Although the traffic was a mess, traffic department says they are geared up for the event and can assure that there will not be snarls on Wednesday. Traffic police says if the residents follow the directions given by them it will help them move faster.
Declining the fact that there was any direction from the police to residents to stay indoor, Satish Mathur, Joint Commissioner Traffic said, "There will be no traffic snarls, but as some of the roads will not be available for the traffic there will be heavy load on LJ Road. Otherwise if commuters follow the directions we have given them it shouldn't be so much of a problem."
He added, "Our people will be present at different areas to ensure that traffic moves smoothly."
