Heavy and multi-axle vehicles prohibited near Merces
Department of Information & Publicity
The District Magistrate of North Goa has issued a prohibition on the movement of Heavy Vehicles and Multi-axle Vehicles coming from Banastarim Bridge to Merces Circle on NH748 from 12.00 pm to 09.00 pm until January 05, 2023. This is due to the influx of tourists and the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, which has caused a significant increase in vehicular traffic at Merces Circle. Furthermore, the closure of the Ponda side arm of Atal Setu has only added to the traffic congestion. The movement of heavy and multi-axle vehicles has only worsened the issue.
