NMMC had recently installed CCTVs at major junctions in the city to improve the safety through surveillance. One such location was at the T-junction in sector 17, Vashi, opposite Citibank, where at least four camera’s and one 360 degree vision eye was installed.
This had also helped in checking the unruly motorists who would break traffic rules and cause daily traffic jams at the junction. Traffic jams had totally ceased at this junction since then.
However, in less than two months, the cameras have gradually disappeared or they have been removed and now we do not have any monitoring at the junction. Has the CCTV project gone defunct or has the warranty on the new surveillance system lapsed so soon?
The reasons are not clear. Will the concerned authorities kindly take it up and restore the cameras and the monitoring?
