Tribune News Service Srinagar, April 26 Taking a serious note of the traffic mess in Srinagar and Jammu, the High Court has directed the divisional administrations in both the capital cities to remove roadside vendors and construct designated bus stops. “Painfully, we put it on record that it is because of the apparent failure of the authorities to discharge their duties that the court has to intervene,” a division bench of Justices Ali Mohammad Magrey and BS Walia observed while passing orders in a PIL about traffic congestion today. “Now, even the general roads are occupied by vendors almost everywhere in the city, hampering the traffic movement to the hilt.
