The various hoardings that adorn the Vashi flyover have become a nuisance not just for the traffic officials but also for commuters. Many complaints have been sent to MMRDA to sort a solution but no prior attention has been given to the problem. The Vashi flyover situated on the road of Sion-Panvel highway has become a cluster of hoardings of all sizes. The lights coming out from the hoardings distract the oncoming traffic making it difficult to see the traffic signal. There is also a police chowki situated here which can easily go amiss amongst all the advertisements. The hoardings have not just become a problem for the commuters but traffic police too during manning traffic. The traffic department has sent various complaints to MMRDA but no response has been received yet. When we tried contacting the MMRDA officials in this regard, they refused to talk to us. Looks like MMRDA prefers to fill its coffers than look at the convenience of the masses. With cameraperson Dyaneshwar Mali, Archana Tripathi for NMTV News.
