Chamiers Road in Chennai is one of the busiest roads and part of an upmarket area. It’s where the Park Sheraton 5 star hotel and The Times of India office, amongst many others, are located. It’s the road that leads to Boat Club Area, the most expensivest residential real estate in Chennai.
Yet, even in such high profile road, I was shocked to see the sheer lack of safety and the danger that commuters are subjected to. These iron rods you see below, jut out like open knifes ready to stab anyone who may just accidently trip over.
These open rods you see stretch for nearly a kilometer on these busy roads and they have been out there for over a month now. And it doesn’t look like the construction will be finished anytime soon.
There’s a tragedy waiting to happen.
