Frequent accidents On NH66

“Fear and anxiety in the minds of the people regarding the frequent accidents occurring on stretches (mostly the concrete stretches) of NH66 specially at Bambolim, Atal Sethu, Guirim (on main stretch approaching Green park and also near Greek Park Hotel) some being fatal: there is no proper lighting, the concrete roads are so uneven and bumpy, no proper markings nor signages nor proper speed limits indicated, no indication of “Danger Zone”, no proper monitoring of speed (except at Atal Sethu) which will get worse during the tourist season, given the fact that many tourists drive vehicles in high speeds unaware of the dangers lurking ahead. Steps the Government intend to undertake in the matter and the time frame for its implementation.”
