Move To Widen Kamarajar Road

The busy Kamarajar Road in Tirupur that is set for widening. Tirupur is veering around to the view that its roads must be widened to enable smooth flow of traffic. Having become a corporation from a municipality, there is an opinion now that bottlenecks on its main roads need to be removed. The Tirupur Corporation recently discussed at its Council meeting the need to widen Kamarajar Road, one of the busiest thoroughfares along which the old bus stand was located.

Mayor K. Selvaraj said the Department of Highways wanted to widen the road and asked for the removal of some shops in the Corporation’s shopping complex on the northern side of the bus stand. When councillors wanted to know how much space would be needed, the Mayor said 10 shops would have to be removed. The councillors were of the view that though widening of the road was necessary, the demolition of shops should not put traders out of business and the Corporation should not lose the revenue that it got in rent.

The elected members suggested that some measure be worked out so that the road was also widened and the Corporation also did not lose revenue. Another section of councillors wanted the Corporation to remove encroachments on all the roads to facilitate free flow of traffic. They said that some structures, including shops of the Corporation, could be removed so that Tirupur could have good roads. The Corporation’s proposal, placed in the form of a resolution in the Council, was to give space for the Highways Department to widen the road and get a compensation for it.
