Goa is known to have clearer roads and less traffic. Many infrastructure projects are being worked on to develop this beautiful State. New roads and bridges appear to be popping up often. Those in charge seem to be working hard to complete these projects before the rainy season begins which sometimes causes traffic jams.
Currently, the road is being widened near Goa Medical College (GMC). Motorists are only able to go through one of the four lanes which lead to Panaji. This has created a bottleneck between Bambolim and Santa Cruz. It may last for only a few more days. It is only during peak traffic hours that slow vehicles lead to traffic jams.
“They have excavated the road owing to which there is only one lane for incoming traffic from Agasaim towards Panaji. Since the work at Bambolim is in its advanced stage, there is congestion on this road,” DySP, traffic, North Goa, Salim Shaikh said. To help decrease the bottleneck effect, the traffic near GMC has been diverted. “Traffic police have been deployed there to handle the movement of vehicles, but it may take a few days. One police inspector regularly visits the scene to monitor the situation,” Shaikh added.
