Walking is the only solution to Shillong’s traffic woes 31.10.2014 Meghalaya Times

Staff Reporter
SHILLONG, Oct 30: Vehicular traffic in Shillong has gone beyond control. The numerous ‘one way’, ‘no entry’, ‘timed entry’ provisions in place are not just enough to tame the growing traffic congestion in the city. The chaos has reached to its peak now when interior narrow lanes which are otherwise meant mainly for pedestrians and vehicles of residents are now utilized as thoroughfares. If a solution to this is not arrived at sooner rather than later, this city may well be blocked by a traffic jam that may well not have a solution.

The alleys of Shillong – haven for substance abusers 30.10.2014 Meghalaya Times

Staff Reporter
SHILLONG, Oct 29: There is a need for occasional police surveillance of roads and lanes in the city, which have become hot breeding grounds for substance abusers, alcoholics, smokers of banned substances and such. The Boyce Road area of the city, behind the Survey of India Estate, rear of Rilbong Beat House and zigzag to name a few have turned into a haven for substance abusers on a daily basis. With no street lights in these places, these abusers are given a free hand to carry on with their intoxicating activities. Mostly school and college going youths, these anti - social elements, who should rather be spending their time in studies, waste it in abusing substances which are harming their body and shortening their lives.
