Morning Blues at St. Mary's ICSE School Koparkhairane, Navi Mumbai
Vashi, Navi Mumbai.
We the parents of children studying in St. Mary's ICSE School Koparkhairane, Navi Mumbai would like to bring your attention towards the traffic and parking problem faced by us. Every morning dropping our kids to school has become a herculean task because of the tempos and loading vehicles parked on both sides of approach road. Approach road to school on either side is choke-a-block with parked vehicles which leaves a very narrow strip to move. School buses, school vans, individual cars and two wheeler moving about in this chaos add to the woes. Many a time to avoid the traffic, two wheeler riders moves on the foot-paths too. Small kids (Pre-primary to 12th Std.) have to cross this road and go to school.
Altercations and minor skirmishes are daily affairs. Rainy season worsens already bad situation. The situation is so chaotic that any time an accident can happen, which will be really unfortunate.
According to school administration they have already approached RTO and traffic police on various occasions and are still waiting for a favorable action.
The probable solutions can be stage-wise:
1. Removal of all illegally parked tempos and vehicles on approach road and make it a no parking zone.
2. Orderly traffic regulation, with the help of a couple of traffic policemen.
3. Regulate entry timings of large vehicles like trucks, tempos, garbage vans etc.
4. Make the approach road one way for traffic.
We, through this petition, would like to appeal to your good office and expect timely action.
Thanks and Regards.
Parents of students' of St. Mary's ICSE School, Koparkhairane, Navi Mumbai.
