Of Pride in New Road Infrastructure

With roads, the traffic situation is going for a spin too.

The landscape of India is in for a major transformation. New and new-look roads are changing the way cities and townships looked like till just a couple of years or so back. Needless to say, the traffic is going for a spin too.

Traffic authorities, as a consequence, should be gathering up their wares, take a stock of the new roads situation in the country and come up with better planning and traffic monitoring in view of greater need for road safety in India.

Take for instance the roads in the capital state of the county. Anyone who lived in Delhi for all his life except for the last 2-3 years would be in for a shock, surprise, frustration and pride, all put together, each with lesser or more degree.

Shock because the important landmarks and those identifiable negotiations on the roads, which one was used to all his life, are no longer there. Thanks to the flyovers – the city now boasts of about 70 odd, widened and new bypass and other roads, the way even I reached a place from another has changed whole hog.

The negotiations and curves I grew up with in my driving and movement in the city suddenly have disappeared. Often I am at shame when I have to drive a non-Delhiite visitor around the city and not finding my way and often stopping my car to check with others. My visitor often wonders if I grew up in this city as I claimed. It’s a matter of great frustration to keep explaining why I am floundering about my knowledge about the city routes.

I am surprised at the new infrastructure that is being laid though and the new traffic safety regime which is building up simultaneously, thanks to the road authority. Indian road traffic is bearing a new look for sure.

Not just Delhi traffic, Bangalore, Chennai and Mumbai traffic too are undergoing this transformation. Something we are able to take pride in.
