Drive at 35 KM/Hour and get all 14 signals green from Kamptee road to Wardha road at Nagpur
In order to reduce vehicle congestion on high traffic roads like Automotive Chowk on Kamptee Road to Pride Hotel T-point on Wardha Road, Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has come up with the innovative idea of turning all signals green if a person drives at the speed of 35 KM/Hour. If a person drives fast he will reach the signal early and find it red.
Old signals lacks synchronization and hence causes piling up of traffic. NMC is trying to replace all old signals into new led based signals as it consumes less electricity and the installation cost is low.

Railway crossing turning into a place for accidents
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.
Nagpur Municipal Corporation failed Parking Plan
NMC has failed to sort out parking problems till 2011, though the move to solve the problem was taken in June 2007 by paying crores of rupees to L&T Consulting Engineers Ltd to prepare master plan for transport system of Nagpur City 2031.
Number of vehicles has increased so they need more space for parking. On failure to provide them space, vehicles are seen parked in No Parking zones. Heavily crowded places need parking space so that the roads are not cluttered with unevenly parked vehicles, and the vehicle owner not heavily charged.
