Arun, I saw your thread only today but going through every post has renewed the importance of buckling up before driving. My i20 keeps beeping till I wear the seat belt so I buckle up as soon I sit in the car.

Update from NHAI: We received a call from NHAI saying all the required actions have been taken for the people crossing this section to get a clear view of the road. They refused to send a written communication with the actions taken though.

- There was a sign board at this intersection with the name of the town nearby for which people will have to take right/left. As per regulations, this should be placed at around 100 meters or more before the intersection so that people can slow down accordingly instead of braking at the last moment. They have now moved this board well before the intersection.

- Also, they have reduced the height of the parapet wall(both sides) on this bridge. Few weeks back, the height was reduced on one side only.

There is a clear view now for both people crossing the road and as well as the drivers approaching this intersection. As mentioned before, they could have done a clean work while bringing down the height of the parapet wall.

Here is the before pic with the sign board exactly at the intersection and height of the wall which was obstructing the view,

IF this intersection was constructed according to the NHAI norms right at the beginning, numerous accidents could have been avoided and many lives could've been saved.

Its pending at consumer court. I think it might take couple of years to end.

The one in high court(Public-Interest Litigation) is closed as court ordered NHAI to fix the irregularities on this intersection.

Default Official communication from NHAI

Official communication from NHAI:

Here is an official confirmation from NHAI that they have taken action and met the IRC67(INDIAN ROADS CONGRESS)regulations to make this intersection more safer. This response was after we raised a RTI request.

In this response they have agreed to take action on all similar intersections/accident spots as well, where the regulations are not met(those spots falling under Madurai jurisdiction).
