Formal Letter Writing ICSE 2008
1/153 Vijay Khand,
12 March 2008
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic)
12, Ashok Marg
Lucknow – 226001
Subject : Frequent traffic jams on the main thoroughfares of Lucknow
I would like to draw your kind attention to the frequent traffic jams on the main thoroughfares of Lucknow. The increase in the population of the city, and the corresponding multiplying of vehicles has aggravated the problem.
The problem becomes very serious during peak office hours in the morning and evening, i.e., 10 A.M. to 11 A.M. and 5 P.M. to 6 P.M., respectively. This is the time when people come to office and return home. Traffic snarls are serious in Charbagh, Vidhan Sabha Marg and Ashok Marg right up to Nishatganj. These routes also become jammed in the afternoon from 1 P.M. to 2 P.M. as school buses and vans ferry school going children home.
To surmount the problem, I would suggest that commercial vehicles including intercity buses should not be allowed on these routes during the above peak hours. Slow moving transport like thelas, tongas should also be restricted for they hamper traffic movement on the bridges.
The above measures if adopted would considerably decongest the traffic on these routes. Besides reducing traffic jams it would also make life easy for the people of Lucknow.
Write a letter to the Superintend of Police (Traffic) complaining about the problem of encroachment of road in busy markets of the city. Offer suggestions for improvement.
