The most congested road in Trichy city is the Madurai road which runs from Palakkarai till Mainguard gate. This road is also called as the ‘junkyard’ road, as it is occupied by vehicles scraps and vendors of scraps. Even though, this road is highly encroached, the city buses and the heavy vehicles ply in high speed, causing accidents often.
Now, a center median is erected near Palace theatre, in front of the Syed-Murdhusha school, which almost shrunk to road to a lane. The traffic in peak hours need to crawl slowly as commercial vehicle is being parked on the sides of the road, along with rickshaws and fish carts.
Center median is an useful structure to avoid accidents for wider roads, but the common public feel worried as to why this center median was erected on a very narrow road, without clearing the encroachments on both the sides of the road.
