VADODARA: Traffic department's suggestion that prominent traffic islands in the city be removed to address traffic issues has shocked traffic experts and architects. They are up in arms against the traffic department stating that removing the scenic islands would be a blasphemous act and worsen the traffic problems. The traffic department had recently written to Vadodara Municipal Corporation (VMC) suggesting that prominent circles on Gaurav Path Road that includes the stretch from airport to the end of Old Padra Road be removed. The letter suggested that in all 14 circles including some others on busy roads be removed to improve the traffic flow. "Has the traffic department done any study on the traffic flow and density in these areas to justify its suggestions? How can it think of mowing down all the traffic islands - some of which have become landmarks of the city? World over, the importance of traffic islands in handling traffic flow has been well documented," said traffic expert Ajitsinh Gaekwad.
