#Venkatesh on May 23, 2016 :
I visit various cities in India as I am a freelance consultant. In comparision to other major cities in India (Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata), traffic problem is medium in Hyderabad. I have seen worst traffic problems in other cities. General complaint from new comers to the city is: people here do not follow lane discipline and I agree with it. But overall, the speed and movement of traffic in peak hours is faster compared to other cities. Another problem here is number of manholes in the center of road. At most places (not much in new Hightech city area), the sanitary sewerage pipes are laid right under the road. It was an age old practice from the times of Nizams in Hyderabad. Due to the man holes there are number of ditches on the roads. Also you will not see footpaths at every place. At most places, footpaths are occupied by hawkers and temporary makeshift shops.
