Owners of shops occupying the Footpath – the public urges them to vacate
Alur: The main road of the town has been encroached on by shopkeepers and people who park vehicles and pedestrians are not allowed to walk on the footpath, creating a dangerous situation.
Yes, most of the shops in the town include bakery, hotel, grocery shop, and cloth shop and the footpath support various types of traders including flower-fruit business, tea shop, Panipuri, Gobi Manchurian, Mirchi Bajji, who are making a living with small jobs. And because of the bikes and other vehicles standing in rows along the footpath, pedestrians are walking on the road as if it is inevitable, creating a dangerous situation.
Aluru town is a small taluk as mentioned earlier. Even if the town does not expand, business transactions are carried out within a specific area. Every day thousands of people including college students, farmers and the general public flock to the town. Almost none of the roads in the town have footpaths except the market. Most of the shops in front of the bus stand are selling fruits, flowers and other things on the footpath as well as on the roads. Due to this, there is no blood on the footpath for pedestrians.
Again, motorists are parking their vehicles everywhere. Due to the indiscriminate parking of vehicles in the town, the buses and vehicles plying on these main roads are facing severe problems every day. These two main issues are that the town panchayat staff should take action against the vendors on the footpath and push carts and make proper arrangements for them to conduct their business and provide easy movement for pedestrians. And the police department also has to arrange suitable spaces for parking and install parking signs. On both sides of the main road, there were complaints about the problem of footpaths and vehicular traffic being disturbed by the traders coming forward from their shops and doing business. In addition, in collaboration with the police department, we have made an alternative arrangement for parking two-wheelers, and in case of re-trafficking, we have cleared the traders who come from the left side of the road and made an interlock system, because our taluk does not have a well-equipped alternative market system, they are doing business on the roadside. Aluru Pattana Panchayat Chief Officer Nataraj said that after the completion of the work, the roadside business will be cleared and the public and traders will benefit.
