MARGAO: Following the numerous complaints about accidents taking place in Navelim, including fatal ones, the authorities began the work of removing the road dividers on the main road.
According to the public, the road dividers were one of the major reasons behind the accidents, given that in many cases, drivers did not see the divider and the vehicles turned turtle leading to serious injuries to the occupants of the vehicle.
Nuvem MLA Ulhas Tuenkar said that instructions have been given to the concerned PWD Assistant Engineer (AE) to install radium sign boards at these spots.
Locals have also demanded regular police presence on busy roads to regulate the flow of traffic and ensure that vehicles being driven rashly are halted and action taken against the drivers.
Irked locals have asked for police surveillance on these roads during peak hours and at night.
