The societies and offices situated across Palm Beach Galleria Mall and City Center Mall at Vashi live hassled weekend due to traffic chaos and congestion. The Navi Mumbai Traffic Police and NMMC are tossing the blame on the other. The trendsetter that turned traffic problems at Palm Beach Galleria and City Center Malls area is Fortune that got the permission from CIDCO and NMMC to open its main gate from the main highway. All these malls have come up on plots that were earlier warehouse plots. However very soon, the development maps were changed and new plans made to give permission to convert the warehouse plots into malls. When traffic problems started worsening NMMC, in a bold move erected a semi wall at Palm Beach Galleria entrance barring moving of cars and vehicles. The worst happened when Fortune Hotel – that had the blessings of NCP Supremo Sharad Pawar was given permission to open from the side facing the highway. Very soon the semi wall at Palm Beach Galleria Mall was brought down. And now traffic nightmares have become an everyday affair with every weekend being the worst. When we met NMMC Local Ward Officer Ashok Madhvi he said that NMMC has given the permission the malls to have an entrance from the side facing the highway. And it is the Navi Mumbai traffic police that are not doing their job. While the Navi Mumbai Police says that had NMMC not given the permission of having an entrance on the main road itself, traffic jams in this area would not have occurred. And since both sides are tossing the blame on the other the local residents of Sector 29 are suffering. Sudhir Sharma – NMTV News.
