Visakhapatnam: The National Highway Authority of India, finally, has come down to assess the possibilities to construct an underpass for vehicles at Thotada junction in Anakapalle town on Wednesday. Thotada Junction is one of the most dangerous accident-prone areas in the district.  

On an average, four persons are dying per month in road accidents at the junction. Due to the lack of proper subways and approach road, the people of seven neighbouring villages are facing troubles in reaching their destination.

 

In addition, thousands of devotees of Sri Nookambika temple are also facing severe problems because of the heavy traffic on the National Highway. The people of the seven villages and devotees have been demanding that the NHAI construct an underpass at the junction to ensure zero accidents.

Meanwhile, during the recently held general elections, the YSR Congress assured the people that after coming to power, an underpass would be constructed at the junction.

According to the assurance, Anakapalle MP Dr. B. V. Satyavathi met Union Minister Nitin Gadkari and explained the pressing need for the underpass at Thotada junction. Considering the demand, the Union Minister directed the NHAI officials to study the possibilities of constructing one.

 

The Anakapalle MP along with GVMC engineers and NHAI officials visited the Junction and interacted with the locals and other officials. The team witnessed the heavy traffic and the need for the underpass.

After the feasibility study, a report would be sent to the ministry for further action, the officials said.
