Residents of Chrompet and Pallavaram were taken aback when they saw a JCB mowing down a grill fencing below four prime rail overbridges in their locality
CHENNAI: Residents of Chrompet and Pallavaram were taken aback when they saw a JCB mowing down a grill fencing below four prime rail overbridges in their locality. They said though these fences had negligible wear and tear and were in a good condition without rusting or any major damage, they were being unnecessarily replaced with a set of new fences. But officials refuted such claims and said they were replacing them as these were damaged.
taking up new projects which disturb existing structures which are in a good shape, they try to siphon off money. There are many pavements which are broken and cannot be used at all. There are several encroachments under bridges. But all these issues are ignored,” said David Manohar, resident of Pallavaram and activist from Arappor Iyakkam.
Construction work began three months ago under five such bridges located in Chrompet, Pallavaram and Madhavaram. As these bridges are located on the state Highways, the space underneath is maintained by the department. To replace the grill fencing which runs along each side under these five bridges, `2 crore was allocated, said officials.
Dismissing claims of local residents, officials from the State Highways department told Express that speeding vehicles had caused damage to the brick structure which supported these grills. “These structures are in place as a safety measure. This is why we wanted to replace the old grills with new ones with a strong cement foundation,” said an official.

The Chrompet Railway Station, one of the most crowded on the Chennai Beach-Tambaram-Chengalpattu stretch, does not have a drinking water facility. Nor does it have refreshment stalls.
“After Guindy, T. Nagar and Saint Thomas Mount stations, Chromepet station boasts a great location, one that enjoys good connectivity with the Metropolitan Transport Corporation. But Chromepet station lacks canteens or coffee kiosks. A couple of decades ago, there was a refreshment stall on the station premises. It closed down,” A. Siva, a commuter, said.
“There is ample space at the station. An Amma canteen or
Aavin Milk parlour can be opened. Unfortunately, the Southern Railway is yet to take any action. The two drinking water facilities on the platform are without water. The water cooler has become rusted. A new water cooler should be installed. Commuters are forced to buy mineral water bottles from nearby stalls,” S. Shalini Augustin, a commuter said.
Moreover, the authorities concerned should consider opening an extra-ticket counter on the eastern side of the station. Commuters coming from Radha Nagar and Lakshmipuram (on the eastern side) have to climb a steep staircase to buy tickets.
An escalator should be constructed and installed on the western side of the station. To avoid the stairs at the Eastern side, people risk their lives by walking on the tracks , commuters said.
Moreover, a space should be allocated for a new parking stand, they added.
The old railway quarters, on the eastern side, can be demolished and used as a parking space as the present stand at the entrance on Grand Southern Trunk Road was crammed, they suggested.
Members of Chromepet Rail Users’ Forum said the matter had been represented to T. R. Baalu, chairman, Parliamentary Standing Committee, Southern Railway. They added that he had promised to look into the matter and do the needful.
