That accident would have been fatal or could have completely changed her life.

This road is very risky. And I plead people to be very cautious when you are crossing this road. The mistake will not always be yours but others mistake can cause your life.

* Road side works completed, track side is pending and progressing slow

That looks like a crumpled 2-laned road with less traffic. Is a ROB justified?

I will be surprised if Railways would even care about it right now because the most important Tambaram ROB is still having a good amount of railway work pending. By the way, wots the status of that ROB now?

You could not see the traffic as the gate is closed. The road is SH and 2-laned. Since lot many factories have come up at oragadam-sriperumbadur, vehicle move movements hv increased many folds..

But with the traffic pile up at pernugulathur, Railways should consider vandalur flyover more important than Tambaram Flyover.
