MBMC to set up special Transport Department to handle traffic menace

Mira Bhayandar Municipal Commissioner instructed to set up an independent Transport Department working under City Engineer and Executive Engineer of MBMC to restructure the transport system and solve the traffic menace in the twin city. It seems that the decision by Dr Vijay Rathod if properly implemented then will relieve the traffic congestion.

Due to the growing population of Mira Bhayandar and the rapid increase in the number of vehicles, the city’s transport system has disrupted. Garages, car washing centres, service centres, vehicle showrooms in various parts of the city have hampered the traffic. The set up of the Transport Department will definitely give some relief to the traffic department.

MBMC has passed the resolution in March 2018 to impose an annual license fee and action on the traders. However, the resolution has not yet been implemented by the regional ward authorities. Therefore, strict action should be taken against them, demanded House leader Prashant Dalvi.

Action on unattended vehicles

On Thursday, the municipal corporation has started an action on the unattended vehicles parked on the road. Earlier, a notice was pasted on these vehicles with an ultimatum of 48 hours to remove them from the road. After that period, the municipal corporation has initiated the action against the vehicles.

In many places in Mira Bhayander city, unattended vehicles are parked on the road. The MBMC has surveyed on unattended vehicles and issued a notice. Later, passed the ordered to remove the vehicle within 48 hours. It was warned that if this was not done, the corporation would pick up the vehicle. Some of these vehicle owners have had their vehicles removed. MBMC has taken action against 26 vehicles which were parked illegally.

You have to pay fine
