Kathipara

After the inaugration of the subway can we say the traffic situation has improved? Yes and No. Removing bottle neck from one location and not removing at another point only adds to the chaos. Guindy is one major bottle neck. The guindy bridge which was considered new when compared to the old one which was replaced does not have enough width which was evident when it was constructed also. But as it is practiced in India we dont believe in prevention rather we believe in treating the disease and that too not future proof. So now Guindy is one big pain.

On the other side all the long distance buses now stop in front of Sankara Nethralaya causing huge choas. Everyday there is some fight happening with that small place turning out to be next Koyambedu. Any blind guy can also see what is happening, but our traffic regulators are turning a blind eye over that and they will act only when a fatal accident happens at that place.

I heard that Kathipara flyover itself doesnt have any signboards and that the long distance buses drive like its a run way. Already 2 or 3 ppl were dead after it was inaugrated. Is the govt watching all these? :-(

Yeah, I too heard about a head-on collision b/w a motorcycle and a lorry and the motorcycle driver died on the spot.
