A transition change to the renovation work - Traffic jam on the new bridge at Palar



 

As the traffic jam on the new bridge, motorists suffered severe hazards.

Palur runs between Vellore and Katpadi. There are 2 bridges for transport facilities to connect Vellore and Katpadi. The old bridge is named after 'Pollur Subramaniam' and the newly built bridge has been named 'Anna'. The Vellore Palar old bridge is over 40 years old. Many parts of the bridge are damaged.

Hence the remediation of the old bridge at Rs.4 ½ crore is carried out on behalf of the National Highway. From yesterday on, the next month (till 31), it was announced that the use of traffic on the old bridge at Palaru was prohibited. At the same time, the police said that the new bridge would be converted into a passage and heavy vehicles were not allowed to go.

Accordingly, the Vellore old bridge was banned from vehicles yesterday morning. And there was no notice boards placed on it. Vehicles coming from Katpadi, Chittoor were placed on the new bridge at Palar.

Vehicles coming from Vellore to Katpadi and Katpadi to Vellore from the new bridge had a traffic jam. Vehicles were slowly crawling one after another. Traffic was hit when the buses reached Vellore from the new bus station to Katpadi.
