TIRUCHI: More than a fortnight after the conduct of a railway trade union conference, the railway junction in Tiruchi still retains the welcome arch and the hoardings.
The presence of the narrow arch on the road near the exit point of the junction affects the free flow of traffic.
The travelling public are surprised at the "failure" of the organisers of the conference to remove the arch and the railway administration turning a blind eye to this menace, despite the location of the office of the Divisional Railway Manager at just a stone's throw distance.
The giant hoardings installed in front of the main entrance of the junction continue to be an eyesore as they blocked the view of the beautiful building constructed during the British regime. At a time when there is healthy competition among the various divisions of the railways to maintain tidiness of surroundings, the continued presence of the hoardings seems to be out of place to many.
