Ganjbasoda (Madhya Pradesh): The local residents find it difficult to commute owing to congestion caused due to roadside parking of trucks that reach here from nearby districts and outside the state. There is no area identified to park trucks in the town. As a result, trucks, tractor-trolleys transporting goods remain parked on main roads.
A large number of stone quarries are located around the city from where hundreds of trucks laden with stones pass through the town. Since there is an A class agricultural produce market in the city, there is a lot of movement of trucks loaded with grains.
Many years back, shops were constructed by the municipality in an area called Transport Nagar. Nonetheless, other businesses operate from these shops.
No entry boards have been put up at the major squares in the town. The existing entry boards are covered with advertisements. The drivers of vehicles coming from outside do not see entry instructions and enter the city. At the same time, many heavy vehicle drivers enter the city through bypass routes but the officials concerned have no time to stop them.
