One of the busiest routes in Jaipur, this route has been witnessing a sharp spike in passenger load in the last few years. According to an official, 1,992 extra passenger car units (PCUs) pass through the Bhawani Singh Road every hour as compared to its original capacity of 5,143 PCUs per hour. The heightened figures have been notably defined in a 2011 survey.
On the other hand, Hawa Sadak marked 10,355 PCUs every hour in 2011, while its capacity was fixed at 6,361 PCU only. With the opening of this, the people of Jaipur will soon see an end to the problem of traffic in this area.
