Vyttila...The Junction of Chaos!

Vyttila is the largerst junction in Kerala. The traffic system roots in Vyttila. This junction is the central nervous system of Kochi. It is from here that you deviate to your destination. Be it towards the MG Road for shopping via Kadavantra or towards Edapally and beyond dashing through the national highway or enroute the palaces of kochi kingdom in Tripunithura or heading to the dead end of Fort Kochi via Kundanoor bye-pass, you have to inevitably touch Vytila.
It is of so commercial as well as strategic importance but it is sad to know that there is no proper bus stop towards the Tripunithura route from Vytilla. It is always so crowded at the place where the bus stops and buses stop wherever they want and that too near to the crossing. There should be a proper bus stop at Vytilla which should be atleast 100m away from the signal so that there wont be overcrowding of private buses.

Just to add a small update to this issue: Last day, traffic police men were seen "regulating" the bus traffic at this particular stop. However, it only resulted into more confusion and chaos, since buses were asked to stop a few metres away from where they usually stop. Passengers found it extremely confusing and difficult, and people were running after buses. Nobody really knew where the buses where going to stop.
