Hyderabad traffic is showing hell to the commuters. Its traffic load now-a- days ia reminding us of traffic at silkboard in Bengaluru. With the estimated population of 1.2cr, the city has around half crore vehicles including two wheelers, four wheelers, lorries, trackers and etc. Every day, 800 to 1000 new vehicles are coming on the roads which accounts for 1.5 to 2 lakh vehicles per year whereas the routes are less. It quite often results in traffic jam.
According to the recent study, there are 35,66,361 two wheelers and 8, 33, 577 four wheelers. The number of lorries, trackers and other vehicles is 61, 319. There are 10, 786 school buses,4,099 private buses and 3,850 RTC buses. RTC buses ply on 1052 routes and they do 42,000 trips from one place to another carrying 34 lakh passengers. The mmts service which carry 3 lakh commuters every day.
When we compare Hyderabad with other cities, for example Bengaluru, which has almost the same population as of Hyderabad, it has 6000 buses commute everyday whereas Hyderabad has only 3850 buses. The proportion of roads in Hyderabad is 6.06% whereas in Chennai, it is 8%.
Five years back vehicles in Hyderabad used to commute at the rate of 20-25 Km per hour which has been reduced to 10 Km per hour now. For the first time that the movement of traffic is so slow in Hyderabad in its 425-year- old history.
In Hyderabad, there are no adequate roads and the existing roads are in bad condition which increase traffic problems. Despite all these, there is no organized public transport system in the city. After launching of Metro trains, the traffic load might be minimized. Metro work and bad roads are the main reason for the heavy traffic. Government has to take proper steps for the conveyance of commuters for traffic free roads.
