ERODE: The students of Vendipalayam village near Erode are facing a problem of life and death. Repair work is being done on the road at Vendipalayam underground railway bridge for the past nine months.

Due to some technical problem, it was stopped. So the villagers could not use the vehicles to cross the bridge.

Everyone is climbing over the railway bridge, crossing the ever-busy railway line to go to other side.

In view of the delay in road work, bus services on the road have been stopped.

With great reluctance parents are sending their wards to school.

The villagers urged the Collector to take steps in this connection and expedite work on the bridge.
