Synchronised traffic signals on MG road.
The Hindu : Karnataka / Bangalore News : Non-stop driving on MG Road soon
Bangaloreans who’ve HATED the very prospect of having to travel through MG [Mahatma Gandhi] Road, because of the 180 second waits that, at almost every other traffic signal.
Come a week, a “synchronised traffic signal” rule is going to be implemented, and hence, one can literally sail through the stretch minus those innumerable strategies one resorts to kill time, at the stops.
It will indeed be a HUGE boon to those who use the road during the clogged and killing peak hour traffic, time saver indeed.
I can’t help but wish new traffic lights can be installed, wherein, they change colour, and allow movement of traffic, based on the density of vehicles at any given moment. Too much to hope for? Probably. But at the rate things are going, its not an impossible.
But yes, I’m sure a ride/drive on MG road, after this “synchronisation of….” Is introduced, one word that’d strike the mind for any traveller would be, “BLISS”!
I only hope it works out well, and the cops don’t mess up. Just one thing that stands out… spend 38 lakh to make our lives a bit easier?
