Road widening in Pollachi to alleviate traffic congestion. For this, 3,254 sq m and 6,836 sq m of government land have been acquired from the private sector. Rs 33 crore 57 lakh compensation has been paid for the acquired lands. Apart from this, Rs 34 crore 61 lakh has been allocated for road works and works are in progress.
A roundabout has also been set up to control vehicular traffic at the Madras Road junction. Meanwhile the vehicles going to the shop street are going in a lane in violation of the rule. Motorists also suffer due to inadvertent parking of vehicles on the side of the road.
Commenting on this, social activists said: -Road widening works are underway in Pollachi. It is planned to set up roundabouts, fountains and lawns at Newschem Road Junction, Election Stadium, Shop Street Junction and Rajamil Road Junction.
But the roundabout tasks have been put on hold without being fully completed. The taluka office has widened the existing road to 4 lanes. But both sides of the road have been converted into parking lots. Motorists are suffering due to this traffic crisis.
