The road that is a part of National Highways 205 radiates out of the city and is one of the main routes that connect the northwest suburbs to the city. Though it was laid and re-laid multiple times, not once was it modified to cater to the heavy vehicles that frequently use the road. Adding to this, the bus terminus, that is located on the CTH road and Ambattur Industrial Estate, second main road junction, is inaccessible to the commuters.
“Heavy vehicles carry goods to various industries in the area via CTH road. However, it’s poorly-laid surface gets damaged often. This in turn makes a ride on the road highly risky. A number of potholes on the road also causes pollution affecting the commuters at the bus stand. Currently, the road inside the bus terminus is also being re-laid leaving little or no space for commuters to wait for their buses,” said Norber Rosario, a resident of the locality. The damaged stretch, encroachments and overflow of vehicles lead to traffic jams at the junction, said Loganathan, a motorist from Avadi, who uses the road on a daily basis.
While trying to contact the Corporation Zonal Officer for Ambattur and MTC managing director Anbu Abraham for a clarification, the calls to both the officials were unanswered.
