The size of the Vijay Nagar rotary will be reduced to ensure a smoother flow of traffic in the area and officials from local administration and politicians inspected the rotary on Friday. The size is expected to be reduced by around 70 per cent.


It was also decided that the statue of Dr Syama Prasad Mukherjee which is at the centre of the rotary will be shifted at the island park being developed in the middle of the BRTS.
Officials said that it has been noticed that the traffic flow at the square has increased because of which traffic jams occur at the square very often.


In the inspection, MLA from Indore -2 Ramesh Mendola, collector Manish Singh, municipal commissioner Pratibha Pal, area corporator Munna Lal Yadav, Chandu Rao Shinde, Saroj Chouhan, Pooja Patidar and others were present.
Aakash Chouhan, a resident of Scheme No 78 said that he works in an office in the Palasia area. He commutes daily from Vijay Nagar Square and faces many jams in his way. He said it is a good idea to reduce the size of the rotary as it will give more space to the traffic.

Radha Bakutra, resident of Scheme No 54, who also commutes daily said she often sees accidents around the rotary as vehicles jostle for space. She said, hopefully such accidents will end with more space.
