Residents want repair works to be taken up There are potholes of the size of small craters every few feet
ERODE: Railway Road here is in a badly damaged condition. There are potholes to the size of small craters every few feet. In those places where potholes have been covered, the ground is uneven, giving jerk to a rider every few seconds.
Residents complain that the road has been in a bad condition for a long time.
Apart from the hundreds of two-wheelers that ply on the road everyday, there are Erode Municipality lorries that make a number of trips on the road to reach the dump yard at Vendipalayam.
The movement of lorries has only increased the strain on the roads, say residents. They want the Southern Railway authorities to immediately attend to the problems on the road.
Sources in Southern Railway say some work has been done in the form of filling potholes with debris. They add that the work has not been fully attended.
