Relocate vegetable market, ease traffic on M.G. Road

March 29, 2024


I urge the new Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) Commissioner Dr. N.N. Madhu to address the issue of vegetable market located on M.G. Road.

Despite repeated appeals and concerns raised over an extended period, the matter remains unresolved, leading to ongoing challenges.

The current setup of the vegetable market contributes to significant chaos, particularly due to the presence of tempos and vehicles belonging to vendors, which obstruct both motorists and pedestrians.

The absence of a median dividing the road exacerbates the situation, with vendors’ vehicles constantly criss-crossing the road, posing serious hazards to road users.

Furthermore, stray cattle roaming the streets presents additional safety concerns for pedestrians and motorists                 alike. The presence of a considerable amount of garbage, largely generated by the market vendors, attracts stray cattle to M.G. Road.

To address these pressing issues, immediate action must be taken. Installing a median on M.G. Road should be prioritised to enhance traffic management and ensure the safety of all road users.

Additionally, relocating the vegetable market away from its current location is essential to alleviate congestion and improve the overall cleanliness and functionality of the area.
