Wake Up call Chennai

Forget all those talk on who gets how much percentage of reservation in education. Can the print media (Newspapers & Television) give more space for highlighting the need for infrastructure. About 10 years back Bangalore started off and today everyone can see how Bangalore is. Chennai learnt from there and improving on infrastructure but the pace of work is not best suited. Probably Chennai would not get so bad as Bangalore but…

For instance, the one straight road from Velachery meets at a junction. The right turn takes to Raj Bhavan and the left to Guindy. Close to the signal there is always a traffic jam. One good thing is instead of switching to manual the cop still persist with automatic signal so there is a quite an amount of traffic movement constantly. But another 6 months, that section is definitley going to explode.

The next one is after turning left from Anna University into Kotturpuram Road keep going straight. There is one signal junction, this is perfectly fine. The real problem is when you head straight down still further and get down from Kotturpuram bridge. The right takes to Adyar Boat Club junction after 500 mts. There is always a choke till about 1/4 of the bridge and proceeding till the signal. I believe the signal pattern needs to be changed. This could enable some free movement.

There are lot more places where traffic jam do occur. But these look like new spots of trouble.

Of course the fact does remain that even with more number of vehicles of all shapes & sizes than Bangalore, the traffic in Chennai keeps moving rather than stagnating for half-an-hour.
