Dear Mr Amitesh Kumar,

Sub- Request to take actions for reducing traffic issues in Lower Parel & Mahalakshmi area

We are residents of Lodha Bellissimo, Ashok towers, Viveria, Planet Godrej, Ashok Gardens , Primero, many other buildings and also office goers in the Lower parel area. We are badly affected by the Lower Parel bridge closure. Travel time from a location in lower parel to another in lower parel itself has increased 4 times from 15min to 1 hour. Taxi/ uber drivers don’t want to come to this area anymore. The lower parel bridge will take a long time to fix, it’s becoming very difficult for us to manage with the current situation of traffic & we are very worried of the situation during Ganpati hence we request you to consider the following steps

1. Please open the right turn from Mahalakshmi station to saat rasta, currently this traffic also gets added to the famous studio road traffic which already has all the lower parel traffic including traffic which is not able to use lower parel bridge & has to go via mahalakshmi

2. Saat rasta is now the only option to go any place in lower parel (which now has many offices), worli, tardeo etc and hence faces immense traffic. To ease this traffic another option is to take the Minerva back road but that road has many hawkers, vehicles parked & also trucks plying which sometimes stop to offload goods and create huge traffic jams, if we could clear these roads and ban parking they would become good alternatives to use to get to saat rasta, hence ease traffic

3. Arthur jail road and road opposite phoenix should not be allowed any vehicle parking except jail vehicles (also to be kept minimum)

4. If we could stop all construction vehicles from this area during peak hours

5. Garbage trucks should pick up garbage in non-peak hours

6. Active traffic management during Ganpati

We earnestly request your intervention in this matter, the sudden closure of lower parel bridge has made our life miserable.

Looking forward to some respite from traffic.

Thanks in advance

Lower parel residents & office goers

P.S- we have included signatures from many residents & office goers who are affected by this, we are ready to help in any way required to help the situation
