MADURAI GETS NEW BRIDGES, ROADS TO EASE MOBILITY
The Tamil Nadu government's decision to construct bridges roads in Madurai and its suburbs will aid in preventing road mishaps and easing traffic jams. At a a three-day annual conference of collectors and police officers in Chennai last week the Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa announced this. She announced construction of an underpass at the junction of Ring Road and Sivaganga Road; construction of a high-level bridge across the Vaigai, connecting Paravai and Thuvariman, and a rail overbridge at Chinthamani between Madurai East and Silaiman railway stations. Connecting Kurivikaran Salai causeway and PTR bridge, a road would be laid on the north bank of the Vaigai, the CM said. The proposed bund road on the Vaigai has remained a missing link as rest of the stretches on both the flanks of the river have been covered. It will provide uninterrupted passage to Thathaneri from Anna Nagar.
