The City Council…
Sub: Traffic Congestion
There is a serious problem with traffic congestion in my housing estate, (Area and city name). On behalf of the residents, I am bringing your attention to this problem of traffic congestion with the hope of immediate attention. (Describe in your words).
We as residents (Residential area name) have been putting up with this unbearable situation for the last five months (More/less). This is especially during peak hours in the morning and evening. The number of cars using the roads has increased ten-fold but the roads remain narrow with only two lanes. (Explain the actual problem and situation).
The traffic situation is aggravated by a new housing project nearby. The vehicles used to transport building materials to the construction site have been going in and out of the area for the past few months. (Describe all about the situation).
Due to the traffic congestion, fifteen accidents have occurred at the dangerous bottleneck on one of the roads during the last month. This is an alarming figure. (Describe your feeling and thoughts).
The residents have requested the developers build their own access roads for their heavy vehicles. We have written numerous times to the developers. (Cordially describe your greetings and requirements). However, our petitions have fallen on deaf ears. Their heavy vehicles are still using public roads.
We hope the City Council will look into our complaints and take prompt action to solve our problem.
On behalf of the resident’s name…
