Vehicles choke at Chennai's Basin Bridge Junction despite traffic diversion
| Tuesday | 16th July, 2019
Since Basin Bridge Junction was made one way, the vehicles from Wall Tax Road could not go directly to the Cochrane Basin (CB) Road to reach Korukkupet.
Also, all vehicles from Mint, heading to the Basin Bridge have to take a longer route, entering Wall Tax Road and again join the Junction.Every day at least one lakh vehicles pass through the Basin Bridge Junction.
This diversion has increased the vehicular density, especially after 6 pm, in the stretch between Moolakothalam and Basin Bridge Junction.
People who want to take ‘right’ to the Basin Bridge Road now have to wait longer,” says Devarajan R, a two-wheeler rider.
They have to go till the Mint tower, take a ‘U’ turn at the North Wall Road, left in Padavattamman Koil Street, and reach Wall Tax Road.
