Addressing a press conference in his office on Sunday, SDM Bhadarwah Dr Owais Ahmed Rana said that after several representations by the civil society and locals about the traffic chaos in Bhadarwah town reportedly due to wrong parking in the conjusted areas and by-lanes resulting into the numerous problems to the pedestrians in general, students and elders in particular, a meeting of the officers of line departments was held and it was decided that all the commercial Vehicles shall not be allowed to park at Seri Bazaar and Pasri Bus Stand.
According to the order No. SDM /PA/16-17/2920-32, it was adecided that all the private vechiles shall be allowed to park only at paid parking and no heavy/ medium vechiles shall be allowed to enter into the town from 9 Am to 7 pm.

SDM Bhadarwah Dr Owais Ahmed Rana said that taking to the consideration problems being faced by the common people due to mismanagement of traffic in Bhadarwah town, which sometime results in law and order problem, we decided to impose traffic restriction and declared some areas as No Parking Zones. SDM further said that Although increasing number of vehicles is a sign of progress, but now time has come to regulate it and taking the same in consideration, we have taken the decision to minimise the traffic congestion and to avoid chaos and problems we used to face during any emergency.
