opinion - wasteful creation of traffic chaos

Are these flyovers and double roads really helping Ludhiana?

Flyovers and double roads help in resolving traffic chaos but it needs proper planning and a better vision to create worthful items.

The municipal corporation over the past 20 years has made many changes to the way roads look in the city of Ludhiana, but how much the pressure on roads have released? Wonder... the case is worse! 

Then what is the right way. 

Is there a planned effort to ignore cycle tracks in Ludhiana because the govt. earns a lot from sale of petrol?

Is there a planned effort never to think about penalizing the car drivers of the city for causing unnecessary chaos and traffic jams in the minor roads or streets of the city? 

Is there a planned effort to whatever amount of funds may be released, electric poles will never be fixed underground.
