Hope they are coming up with a visionary to develop an alternate road for the main thoroughfare (Melur Road). With extension of NH-785 from Madurai-Natham to Thuvarankurichi, the entire traffic from Chennai/Trichy can take this route to enter Madurai, which eventually will reduce the traffic in Melur Road and Mattuthavani area. And the NHAI has declared the Madurai Ring Road with numbering as NH-744A. With this Ring Road intersecting near Umachikulam, the traffic towards South can be diverted from here. Still it seems to be a better plan for Madurai.
True. Only the NH from palanganatham till tirumangalam has the scope for proper 4 lane road.

Dindugal NH and theni NH are too narrow at certain points and has no scope for expansion. Probably an elevated road on top of the existing Madurai - bodi line from bye pass road till the NH ring road .

Of course , the simmakal stretch is a crucial one but Not sure why they chose Natham road instead of these NH .
Anyways hoping that these projects would kickstart soon unlike other projects which are only on papers till date .
