The corporation of Trichy is now concentrating on the ONE and the ONLY project, SBM – CLEAN TRICHY, but have cleverly forgotten to monitor other basic amenities. The vital and mandatory infrastructure for a city is the FOOT PATH for the walkers.
All roads need to have a foot path for the walkers on the both the sides. Major roads like WB road, Thillainagar main road, Bharathidasan road, rockins road, Bharathiyar road, EVR road, Tennur high road, salai road, Madurai road,and sastri road do not have proper foot path for the walkers as per the guidelines.
None of the major roads do have a proper Foot Path for the walkers like senior citizens, physically challenged, school students, women and children. Even a few found, do not have properly laid slabs, damaged and mutilated. This has forced the walkers to use the roads, which is seems to unsafe and life risking. None of the corporation officials have cared about the walkers and moreover the few available foot paths are occupied by small vendors, two wheelers parked and advertisements sign boards.
It is the bound duty of the corporation to provide foot path for the walkers and it is also the mandatory amenity of a road construction. Moreover, most of the roads are occupied by vehicle parking on both the sides, narrowing the breadth of the road and encroached by the shops and commercial complexes.
Will the concerned authorities attached with the corporation look in to this major issue and do the needful, at the earliest?
