GN Chetty road was supposed to get a flyover. Over its intersection with TP road. The Vani Mahal juction over which this flyover was to be built, was also in the middle of a gorgeous stretch of Madras. Spacious houses from mid twentieth century, huge trees on either side of the road and generally a feel good part of the city. In order to build the flyover which no one needed, the trees were cut down. So far, it’s common knowledge.
Suddenly, all construction activity has stopped. Only the gutter on the side is being relaid. Here is what an auto driver told me yesterday: the flyover project has been scrapped. Reason being, the soil is too loose. Yes, the trees were cut down and then, they realized this.
Here is what we do: File a PIL. File an RTI petition and file very many other things. Bribe every journalist and raise a stink. And outshine Kiruba. And, hold the bastards who did the feasibility study accountable. By hanging them.
