June 30th, 2013Rangarajapuram Flyover

Rangarajapuram flyover connects Kodambakkam and West Mambalam to T.Nagar. It was open only from T.Nagar 24 hours at the beginning and then better sense prevailed. Now between 8 am and 12 pm entry allowed only towards T Nagar side. It reduces the traffic volume on Kodambakkam flyover and Duraisamy subway. But inspite of sign boards mentioning the one way timings and barricade near Vivek and a traffic police motorists do come the wrong way. Why is that the authorities wake up only after some major accident happen? Do they really wake up or act so to blow over the public anger? It is very common to see the old violations coming back after sometime!
Edit: Now in their wisdom they have stopped that partial entry they gave towards T.Nagar side!

Auto drivers not only fleece the public but also affect the flow of traffic either by parking wherever they want to or by moving slowly looking for victims(passengers).

December 1st, 2012Unused platforms

In Chennai platforms are hard to come by. They are the ones to be reduced or removed in road widening drive. Even if they are available encroaching will take care that pedestrians cannot use them. Maybe that is the reason the pedestrians use only roads even where unencroached platforms are available!!
