Residents of Maharishi Valmiki Nagar conducted a meeting to discuss the problems being faced by commuters on Hambran Road on Friday. They demanded the civic body to identify the areas where traffic lights were urgently required.
An advocate, Varun Jain, said the commuters had to suffer a lot due to traffic snarls at different chowks near Kundan Vidya Mandir and Dayanand Medical College and Hospital.
“We want that traffic lights should be installed and roundabouts should be setup to avoid mishaps and traffic snarls,” he said.
A senior citizen, Darshan Singh, said, “Thousands of people visit Dayanand Medical College and Hospital daily and they take turn to the hospital from a chowk near the school, but they stuck in traffic snarls, especially when school gets over. The authorities should take steps immediately, so that patients don't suffer.”
Residents also gave a written complaint to the member of the District Ludhiana West Sub-Division Grievances Redressal Committee, Satish Thaman, who assured them to raise their matter with the authorities concerned.
