PONDA: The Commuters and Kundaim locals have demanded dividers on Manaswada Kundaim road which leads towards Village Panchayat Kundaim.
According to locals, the 200-meter long road with 14-metre width has become accident-prone in the absence of dividers. This road stretch connects to Ponda Panajim NH, and thus, vehicles proceeding on NH sometimes get confused and proceed towards Manaswada road as it is too wide than NH passing from Kundaim. Since the road is too wide, vehicles are speeding and inviting accidents. Earlier in the past several accidents had occurred at Manaswada road, including fatal.
Viraj Sapre at Ponda said he too witnessed several accidents on this road while commuting towards Panjim. Over the past week, including today, two accidents occurred, and vehicles were badly damaged due to confusion. He said a road divider is a must on such a wide road to prevent accidents.
