Default Road caves in at Chennai (Madhya Kailash junction)

A large crater appeared on the road at the busy Madhya Kailash junction in Chennai on Thursday morning. While traffic police officials barricaded the spot, vehicular movement is slow as a result of the crater.

According to reports, the sinkhole, which is around six-feet deep, appeared at the tri-junction of Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR) and Sardar Patel Road in the early hours of Thursday.

Officials say the road caved-in due to the impact of the underground drainage works that were being carried out close to the sinkhole.

Been saying this for sometime now, TN is walking the WB & BR way for past few years.

Default Re: Traffic and life on the road in Chennai

Why do some of the local buses have the colorful lighting around the boundaries? This used to be common on the intercity buses within the state in the past, especially the overnight ones to Trichy, Madurai and so. But now the city has a lot of them; across slow, express and other options.
