The railway crossing at Manish Nagar is a constant place for accidents. Speeding vehicles just rush through when they find the railway gates open. The gate remains closed for most of the time due to passage of trains. When it gets open there is traffic jam as no one wants to wait and want to be the first to cross the gate. This leads to slow flow of traffic for 15 – 20 minutes before it is again time for closure of the gate. Trains have to wait for a long time before traffic gets clear.
