I think a statue of Handloom would be rightly depicting the base for Erode's growthPublic invited to submit designs for roundabout at GH junction
Designs to be submitted by November 29
The district police have asked the public to submit designs for the new roundabout that is to be constructed under the flyover at the GH Junction.
GH junction is one of the important spots in the city as Five Roads, Perundurai Road, Nasiyanur Road, Mettur Road, E.V.N. Road and Meenatchi Sundaranar Road (earlier Brough Road) meet here. A flyover connecting Perundurai Road, Meenatchi Sundaranar Road and E.V.R. Road was constructed to ease traffic congestion at the junction. But traffic management at the junction became difficult and the police recently placed concrete slabs around two pillars to ensure vehicles moved without hindrance. Since a permanent roundabout is the only solution, the district police recommended the Corporation and the district administration to construct one at the junction.
Superintendent of Police S. Sakthi Ganesan said that both the Corporation and the district administration have decided to construct a new roundabout at the junction. Public can submit the designs to the Office of the District Police in person or through post by November 29
I think the same. But it is going to be maintained by ECMC. So I wish a single Stone made Statue would be easier for maintenance. Otherwise they will make it in artificial concrete like structures like the earlier Rock mount fountain placed in PS Park. That would go waste in few years. I hope they would plan wisely and keep this as a landmark of Erode forever, like Kalaimadu Statue near Junction.Erode is HQ of erode district... So roundana should show diverse nature of erode including handlooms, farming(turmeric), natural features...
