Means of transportation in Hyd :)

Just going to write how difficult commutation has become in Hyderabad city. Most of the software professionals work in Hi-tech city. My house is in Begumpet. If I start at 9am in the morning, I reach around 11. Even though I start at 8:30 I reach at the same time. Traffic jam starts from Pantaloons and its so horrible... people dont even care for pedestrians(one of them being me sometimes). Everyone is in a hurry to reach the other end.
Sometimes I opt for car pooling with my colleagues. Well coming to the point of my journey... I cover all means of transportation for just 13kms.
CAR... BUS...AUTO...BIKE...WALKING. sometimes I also cover train. It includes all those other means again. Dammit... didnt know that life could be so horrible in hyderabad in these days... On top of it... road widening... flyover construction and collapsing... manholes open on the main road... Municipality water works... These things are making life miserable in hyd. The number of accidents in the recent days also increased to a considerable amount!!!! :(
First of all stress levels of working professionals are high... if anyone comes in this traffic... they increase to their peak point... I dont even feel like working when I am in that condition.

Can we do something do this traffic congestion at different places? Sometimes I feel there should be a direct flyover from begumpet till hitech city... but again there will be traffic jam on it hehehee :D
And we will enter world records for TRAFFIC JAM ON LONGEST FLYOVER... heheheheeee
Or there should be some port key like in harry potter... where you just hold it and the next moment you are in office!!!!!!! Wow... wouldnt that be good if this idea works out :P
Or there should be some airbus/aircar facility... where you fly in air by car/bus and reach office directly.... but one more problem may arise here.... traffic jam in the sky....heheheee
I am being crazy now.... let me wind up here... Being a part of traffic jam and to vent my feelings I just put my words here....:)

it's not just hyderabad that comes in the list of worst traffic jams, but almost all major cities in India. Only about Delhi that I heard that commutation is comfortable with the existing infrastructure.

with increased earnings, and reachable four wheeler prices, more and more number of cars are coming onto roads everyday. if you observe, there will be only one person sitting in almost all the four wheelers. good to learn that Indian government is going to impose lot of road tax to these four wheelers to reduce the traffic.

with this mismatch between the growth of personal incomes and infrastructure development, i don't think we will be enjoying a comfortable ride on roads in near future.

best way is to stay near the company, paying extra money as rent rather than bearing with hours of irritating time on the polluted roads.

ha hha... by the way, happy commuting!!!
