Kolkata (July 10,2023) : Long stretches of the EM Bypass in Kolkata are plunged into darkness after sundown every day, causing inconvenience to commuters and residents. The stretch between Chingrighata and Ruby crossing is particularly dark, with street lights either not working or not working properly. This has made the stretch dangerous for pedestrians and motorists alike.

Commuters say that they have to be extra careful while driving on the stretch at night, as they cannot see the potholes or other obstacles on the road. They also say that the darkness makes it easy for criminals to operate on the stretch.

Residents of the areas along the Bypass have also complained about the darkness. They say that they are afraid to step out of their homes after dark, as they do not know who or what might be lurking in the shadows. The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has been repeatedly asked to fix the street lights on the Bypass, but to no avail. The KMC has said that it is facing a shortage of funds, which is why it has not been able to fix the street lights.

The darkness on the EM Bypass is a serious issue. It is a major road that connects Kolkata with other parts of the state, and it is used by millions of people every day. The darkness makes the road dangerous for commuters and residents, and it also makes it easy for criminals to operate on the stretch. The KMC needs to take urgent steps to fix the street lights on the Bypass. The safety of the people who use the road is at stake. The KMC has said that it is facing a shortage of funds, but this is not an excuse. The safety of the people of Kolkata is more important than money. The KMC must find a way to fix the street lights on the Bypass, even if it means cutting back on other projects.
