| Wednesday | 17th July, 2019
By Express News ServiceCHENNAI: With at least five schools in the vicinity and heavy flow of vehicles, a non-functional traffic signal on the junction near the Ambattur OT bus stop poses a major risk of accidents.
It has been over a month since the signal stopped working and due to this, traffic jams have become a common sight.
Located just 200 metres away from the bus stand, the busy junction connects Koyambedu and Avadi, Koyambedu market area and Ambattur suburbs.
Though traffic police are available for about four hours, it gets chaotic with motorists trying to zip past the cop.
When contacted, a local traffic cop said they had sent repeated reminders to the higher officials and that they would be managing the traffic manually till the traffic signal is repaired.
