Residents of Adyar, located on the outskirts of the city, are facing increasing difficulties commuting due to an unsecured railway crossing, raising serious safety concerns for the community.

Lack of Safety Measures

The road leading to Adyar hills features an un-gated railway track, leaving commuters vulnerable to potential accidents. Despite the presence of a railway officer, no proper facilities such as a roof or room have been provided, leaving individuals exposed to the elements.

Ongoing Concerns and Promised Solutions

Local residents express frustration over the lack of progress in installing gates at these crossings to prevent accidents. The absence of gates poses risks such as vehicles getting stuck on the tracks, coupled with the unpredictable timing of train arrivals, increasing the danger of serious injuries or fatalities.

Longstanding Issue and Demands

Mahabala Adyar, a resident, highlighted the longstanding issue dating back to 1985 when the project was sanctioned. Despite assurances from various officials, including MPs and MLAs, no action has been taken. Promises of a watchman and construction of a proper railway crossing remain unfulfilled.

Urgent Calls for Action

Locals demand immediate measures, including the deployment of a watchman during night hours and the construction of a level crossing bridge. The existing watchman lacks basic facilities, forcing individuals, including women, to endure harsh conditions.

Plea for Resolution

Residents remind politicians of their electoral influence, warning of potential repercussions if the issue persists. They emphasize the sacrifice made by locals for railway construction, calling for swift action to address safety concerns and prevent further loss of life.
