The Mumbai Traffic Police department on Thursday cleared the footpath near Mahalaxmi Racecourse after DNA reported about the footpath being illegally encroached by parked two-wheelers. The residents and regular office goers from the area have now heaved a sigh of relief.

DNA on Wednesday had reported 'Mumbai traffic police turn blind eye to bikes parked on footpath' prompting the traffic police department to take action against the violators and clear the footpath for the pedestrians to walk. The footpath on Dr E Moses Road from Mahalaxmi railway station to Mahalaxmi Racecourse was overtaken by illegally parked two-wheelers which mostly belonged to owners working in the nearby offices.

"The footpath was entirely encroached with two-wheelers earlier (see before pic) and now the traffic police department has cleared the footpath (see now pic) and has also informed the offices in the locality to instruct their employees to not park their vehicles," said Suresh Jain, a shopkeeper and social worker.

"We had made several complaints to the traffic police department but they had failed to take any action but now the footpaths are clear and the pedestrians will not have to walk on the street by risking their lives," said Jain.

For the past few months, the complaints were made to the traffic police department helpline and to the police control room for taking action against the violators.

Ashok Dudhe, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic City), said, "We will be taking strict action against the violators for parking their vehicles on the footpaths. The Worli traffic division was informed to immediately clear the two-wheelers parked on the footpaths."
