Parking woes at Mettuguda, Tarnaka and Secunderabad to end soon

Hyderabad, Aug.2 (PMI): Hundreds of motorcycles are left on the roads near Tarnaka and Mettuguda Metro stations. The footpaths reserved for pedestrians and roads reserved for vehicles have become parking spots. Footpaths and roads are choked with parked vehicles forcing pedestrians to walk on the road.
There was considerable vehicular traffic and flow of pedestrians on these roads. It is a sore sight for the residents and commuters to see what the once majestic roads have now been reduced to parking at both sides of the road at Mettuguda and Tarnaka Metro stations leading to congestion and obstruction causing hardship to citizens. Besides, hawkers at Mettuguda junction and Secunderabad East Metro station are causing nuisance for commuters. The consequent space crunch led to traffic jams, freak accidents as pedestrians have no choice but to walk on roads instead of pavements.
The South Central Railway has come up with an idea to resolve this parking problem at Metro stations. SCR has identified vacant railway lands at Mettuguda, Tarnaka and Secunderabad East Metro stations, and invited open tenders for awarding parking contracts at these locations. Considerable parking space just beside the three Metro stations has been earmarked in the tender and will open on August 19.
Cooperation extended by the South Central Railway and co-ordination with Hyderabad Traffic Police, Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) and Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) authorities would definitely provide a hassle-free commuting for the citizens at Mettuguda, Tarnaka and Secunderabad East Metro stations shortly. This move is going to help ease out the traffic chaos in the central part of the city. (PMI)
