Garbage burning again on major road crops

Link Road in Poonamallee has improved a lot in recent months in terms of safety features

Last year, at the height of the lockdown, open plots at Link Road (towards Mangadu) in Poonamallee were litter-free. It also seems that the long-standing waste – the waste has been freed from burning. However, after lockdown rest, these problems developed again.

Under the scope of the State Highway Department, the road was for the “Adopt a Road” program, the Greater Chennai Police initiative started in October 2020.

As a result, the road has received several safety features including the installation of signboards, reflectors, steel barricades and zebra-crossing markings.

The experience on this road has also been improved by removing encroachments such as eateries on the road.

Resident of Poonamallee. “Poonamallee municipality and traffic police should not put garbage on these plots,” says Murugan.

Link Road is a lifeline for residents in villages such as Kollachery, Arambedu, Erumaiyur, Gerugambakkam, Kavanur, Kolambakkam and Poonathandalam. Apart from this, the people of Nazarathpet, Sennanerkuppam, Chembambakkam, Mangadu, Kattupakkam, Maduravoyal and Vainagaram also use the stretch to reach other parts of the city. People visiting Kanchipuram, Thiruvallur, Vellore and Bangalore also use this road. In addition, it is associated with commercial establishments.

It is really strange that such a busy vibe is not well lit. Police sources say that there have been frequent accidents on the stretch.

“Soon, necessary steps will be taken to stop garbage dumping and water on the link road,” says a state highway official.
