Union Minister of State for Prime Minister’s Office, V Narayanasamy, has been urged to take steps to widen the Pondicherry-Cuddalore road with central divider in view of the increasing number of accidents in the area.

President of Bangaru Vaickal Neeraadhara Koottamaippu,an NGO, Chandrasekhar in a letter to the Union Minister requested him to take up the road widening work to allay the fears of road users.

Chandrasekhar said, “A lot of accidents are  happening on the stretch from Marappalam to Cuddalore. To reduce the accident rate, roads have to be widened with central dividers.”

“Heavy vehicles plying on this stretch move at a high speed and there is no system to regulate the traffic or control the speeding vehicles,” he added.

The activist further said that there are several educational institutions on this stretch that increases the risk of accidents.

He stressed on the need to widen the road by pointing out that the Pondicherry-Cuddalore road connects several other important communes like Ariankuppam and Bahour.
