Mangaluru, Dec 01, 2018: The bus stop at Nanthoor junction frequently in the lime light, for buses plying towards KPT has been relocated about 25mts ahead along the KPT road and thus the vehicle congestion at the junction will soon witness much required control.
However, with lack of information/direction board regarding the change, passengers are in much confusion. A few service buses and some city buses including the route nos 13G, 14, 15, 44, 47, 62, 65 from Hampankatte, Mangaladevi and Kankanady travel towards KPT via Nanthoor circle. Now the bus stop for all these buses has been relocated to near Adishakti Complex with a new bus stop having been created here.
Even though traffic signals have been newly installed at Nanthoor junction, the buses going towards KPT have a free left passage. Therefore there is no need fpr the buses to stop near Nanthoor junction. Hence, only buses going towards Bikarnakatte are allowed to stop at the bus stop near the junction. Then again, the buses are not permitted to stay there for long and must exit soon after picking up its passengers. Only then will it be possible to improve the flow of traffic.
