SUB:MUMBAI CITY FAULTY ROAD SIGNALS AND ROAD SIGNS.
Its almost end of monsoon rains.Howevr there are almost 30 to 40% of traffic signals ARE either not functioning OR are faulty/fused bulbs etc.
For example -a traffic signal pole on junction of Mahakali Caves Road and MIDC main road (OPPOSITE MIDC OFFICE/AHURA CENTER) is OUT OF ORDER SINCE ONSET OF MONSOON ( JUNE/JULY-08).
Faulty signal lights CAUSES confusion for drivers and can lead to accident/signal jumping.
Hundereds and thousands of vehicles pass through above mentioned signal daily (Marol Bus depot./SEEPZ and MIDC Andheri Industrial / Offices vehicels).
can anyone in BMC/TRAFFIC POLICE/MIDC take a corrective action in restoring road signals of MUMBAI ????
Citizens and Industries located within MUMBAI city pays CRORES of taxes to BMC/MIDC/Road Transport dept. Where these money goes ???
Further road sign at intersection of western express highway and Andheri Flyover road (Bisleri Factory Junction) ARE NOT PROPERLY DISPLAYED.
For traffic moving from Charat Singh colony / Ghatkopaar Link road - moving towards Andheri Fly Over / taking right turn from Bisleri junction towards Andheri Kurla Road -GETS PENALISED IF RIGHT TURN IS TAKEN FROM LEFT6 LANE OF THE ROAD.
I am sure hundreds of drivers gets penalised at above junction DUE TO FAULTY / Improper disply of road signs.
