Street Scene : Calcutta

This is another image from the street of Calcutta.A policeman is overseeing traffic discipline at a busy intersection of Central Calcutta.The trams have been part of Calcutta's public transport system for more than a century.Similarly the taxis have remained the same for the last half a century.Very little modernisation has taken place with regard transport system of the city except for the introduction of the underground Metro Rail in 1984.Then road space which stands for about 8 percent of the total area of the city needs to be increased by creation of newer flyovers and network of roads,so that public transport can be smoother in years to come.
