We often get impatient with the traffic congestion on roads. Increased vehicles, bad roads, and frequent traffic jams are quite common in the city. But then, Hyderabad roads are still better than the roads in other metros. The average speed of vehicles on Hyderabad city roads is higher than the average speed of vehicles in other metros. This was revealed in some private survey.
The average speed of vehicles in Delhi in 2021 is 20.60 kilometers per hour. The average speed on Mumbai roads is 19 kmph. Kolkata recorded an average speed of 19 kmph. But, the situation is better in the southern cities. It is 24 km in Chennai and 21 km in Bangalore. In Hyderabad, the average speed of vehicles improved to 25 kmph. Before the arrival of Corona in 2019, the average vehicle speed in Hyderabad was 23 kmph.
Traffic Joint Commissioner AV Ranganath said that steps are being taken in collaboration with GHMC to ensure the smooth movement of vehicles on the roads. "The average speed of vehicles has improved with the collective measures of the traffic police and the GHMC. The expansion of roads and construction of flyovers were being discussed from time to time to make it better," he said.
