Panchayat Minister Mauvin Godinho has proposed to construct another parallel railway over-bridge connecting Shantinagar and New Vaddem as the existing railway over-bridge is congested due to the rise in vehicular traffic.
He was speaking to the media after inspecting the beautification-cum erection of GI wires mesh (nets) at the existing railway over-bridge on Wednesday morning. Godinho said, “The railway over-bridge, connecting Shantinagar and New-Vaddem has become a suicide point and in order to avoid such incidents in the near future, I had proposed to erect a mesh as part of the beautification work,” said Godinho.
He disclosed that he has forwarded a proposal to the Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu in order to construct another parallel railway over-bridge which would resolve the issue of traffic congestion during the peak hours.
“There are couple of houses towards Shantinagar which will be rehabilitated by the government in order to construct the proposed second parallel railway over-bridge”, added Godinho.
He informed that the water pipelines and the electric cables which are passing from the existing railway over-bridge will not be shifted. The new proposed railway over-bridge will be widened and it will be useful for one-way traffic.
The Panchayat Minister said that the people of New Vaddem would get a police out post near the railway over-bridge.
“I have proposed a police out post at New Vaddem which would come at the existing toilet facility which is lying in a dilapidated condition for the last several years,” said Godinho.
The Panchayat Minister have disclosed that he had proposed some more electric transformers in various parts of Dabolim constituency involving New Vaddem in order to resolve the problem of power fluctuations.
