Noida News: In order to reduce traffic congestion, the Gautam Budh Nagar traffic police intend to impose limitations on the passage of private passenger buses along the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway during rush hours, according to authorities.
Private Buses Linking Capital to Outlying Cities Affected
They stated that these buses include those going from Delhi to surrounding cities like Kanpur and Agra as well as cities along this motorway route. According to Saurabh Shrivastava, assistant commissioner of police for Noida Traffic, “the traffic police is planning to restrict the movement of private passenger buses during peak hours to reduce traffic congestion on the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway.”
Noida Traffic Police’s Joint Effort with Delhi Police
In addition, since heavy commercial vehicles are already prohibited on this route, the city’s traffic police are working with the Delhi traffic police to solve the issue of heavy passenger vehicles. ACP said, “We are coordinating with the Delhi Traffic Police, and once we reach a decision, we will restrict the movement of passenger buses on this route.” As the majority of buses pass via Noida on their way from Delhi, private buses can frequently cause traffic problems on the Noida-Greater Noida Motorway during peak hours.
Noida’s Plan to Ease Private Bus Traffic
‘The majority of private buses that depart from Delhi and head to nearby cities pass through Noida. To relieve commuters, we intend to allow them to move during off-peak times. Alternative routes are also being developed,’ according to a traffic officer with knowledge of the situation. Recent events like the Moto GP and the Uttar Pradesh International Trade Show saw the Noida traffic police completely forbid heavy truck movement on the Noida-Greater Noida Motorway. Traffic police are thinking about imposing similar limits during peak hours due to the better traffic condition during these events.
Support Grows for Passenger Bus Restrictions
Daily motorway commuters praised the concept of limiting passenger buses during rush hours. They drew attention to the fact that these buses frequently cause jams, especially when they stop for pick-up and drop-off, which clogs up busy areas like Pari Chowk and the Mahamaya Flyover.
