How to Control Growth of Heavy Vehicular Traffic & Traffic Safety in UT of Dadra & Nagar Haveli?

Dadra & Nagar Haveli is well connected by road and Rail with rest of the country. The NH-8 provides the major road connectivity to the study area.

Building & maintenance of infrastructure facilities (roads, bridges, telecommunication, water supply, sanitation etc.) needs to be taken on war footing since industrial development of our region galloped manifold, along with population over the years. I have been witnessing very harrowing experience in the road transport sector for more than twenty years, which is the only link of this region to the rest of India.

1) To control the heavy traffic, Bypass road is already sanctioned for Silvassa. Municipal corporation has to act on it so that this bypass ring road can be activated quickly. 2) CCTV cameras to be installed with Hi-mast polls to punish the right person who breaks the rules. 3) Signage for speed control instead of breakers, removal of breakers to avoid the accidental circumstances will help in traffic jamming conditions. 4) Removal of encroachment at main roads to release wide roads.

we must need a ring road for heavy vehicles bcoz theres lot of heavy vehicles entered in the UT as there is lots of industries are establishes in around of silvassa. we need more wider roads and flyover for controlling traffic of silvassa. As population is growing day by day it is must to prepare an action plan for the road safety and traffic control. I think flyover is the best way to control traffic and for the less accident......

Increasing roads or widening them would only give temporary relief for about 2 to 3 years, and then we would be back in square one.
Instead incentives could be provided to companies to move their offices from cities to rural areas.
Most IT service companies do not need to be located in the city. All they need is good power supply and internet connection.
If infrastructure is improved in rural areas and incentives provided, then companies could become inclined to move there.

Traffic jham is major problem at Silvassa-vapi main road at location samarvan To piparia bridge. We noted main reason for traffic jham /block is Commercial vehicle entry in city area. So we suggest to you make by pass road / ring road out side from city. So save energy, control on pollution and safe environment.

Respected sir traffic can be controlled by making more and more roads. If there would be 2-3 roadways for 1 destination the number of vehicles for a particular destination will be divided among those 2-3 roadways.

Recently a Notification issued by authority Bhavnagar Gujarat about RTO Traffic penalty charges for not helding PUC of vehicle rs. 1000/=. It is created & enhanced more corruptive practice and unduly harassment to public without changes in pollution control. I want to suggest that the object of PUC to control the pollution and not only to held with vehicle,hence,first instance,if any person found without PUC,he has been given chance to clear PUC within 24 hours,if he failed,penalty to be charged

1. No parking on main roads
2. Parking on arterial road should be charged. No free parking on public space
3. Heavy fines for traffic rules violations
4. Older vehicles shunted out to rural areas
5. Public transport system be strengthened

Dear Modi Ji,

If we can put restriction on number of people travelling in a two wheeler and four wheeler. If we can put restriction on four wheeler that it should have minimum two people then only anyone can ride on road or else they have to make some pass that will be costly. This will push people to use public transport that will not only reduce traffic but also control pollution.

So we need to put restriction on different wheeler vehicle.
