Chennai, India: Four lane highway snarled-up by level crossing

29 Aug

More than 30-times a day traffic on the upgraded four-lane divided Chennai-Tiruvallur highway grinds to a stand at the Pattabiam Military Siding level crossing. This is because the necessary road-over-rail bridge has still to be built as land purchase issues are unresolved. While there is a commitment to construct a six-lane bridge to end this misery, no timetable for the elimination of this level crossing has been published as tenders for this work will not be invited until land acquisiiton is complete.
