Heavy traffic jam has become a severe problem due to road works undertaken near Fever Hospital.
Six months have passed since the road work has commenced and it still is going on forcing vehicles to spend at least 20 minutes to travel between Fever Hospital and Tilak Nagar.
SCR summer specials
South Central Railway is doing a good service by running 26 special AC trains between Secunderabad and Visakhapatnam to tide over the rush during this summer.
I request the authorities to attach at least six non-AC and two general coaches as all the commuters are not rich enough to bear the increased fares.
Since the total journey takes about 12 hours, trains may please be scheduled as night services to help passengers escape the summer heat during travel.
It is appalling to see accidents taking place between Rythu Bazaar, Alwal and Bolarum especially due to poorly lit road on this stretch and a road divider that is hardly visible.
The R&B Department has just laid a new road off St. Ann’s High School but they do not bother to actually look into the important matter of have good street lights on this State highway. Lamp posts have been installed long ago but no lights have been fixed so far.
