Roads in Tamil Nadu
Roadways are the important means which contributes a major part of our countries GDP. One has to say that our country has the third largest roadways in the whole of the world. There are two type of roads that are termed as raw roads and the other one is good roads i.e., that of the highways.
Though the overall preview of Chennai would make one believe that the roads are so good in Chennai I would state that the roads are not as good as it really seems to be. It would be good if the roads are not laid than laying the roads which are not up to the standards. The roads are the integral part of man as these are the major source of transportation of our country and more people are finding it as the most suitable system for them to transport but the roads are not up to the quality. It is really a true fact the roads are laid then and there after every 3 to 5 years but the roads put are not proper and they get destroyed very soon even before 6 months after the roads are laid.
I would like to add the evidence which I got while travelling through a city near AVADI and would say that the people use a narrow path to travel though the roads are big as never before. As of now as the rain has affected the Chennai region you can see a lot of roads where water has been stagnated and it makes a dirty view of the city to anyone who comes by the side. There are lot of accidents and slippery happening because of this situation of the roads. I would like to tell that the government should be efficient enough to build the roads that are good and doesn't break in a short period of time.
The state also contains other type of roads that are good and are maintained well and there is a huge difference between these two roads. The Highways are the best example for such a type of roads and I would say that while these roads are maintained by separate laborers why not the government take initiative to provide laborers to facilitate the roads which are not developed that much. The highways are developed as the people from other state would get a preview of roads of Tamilnadu by seeing this but this is totally an unfair practice.
There is a lot of money paid by every individual on behalf of the vehicles he owns. The government earns a huge sum of public money to its account and there is a huge deposit of this money in the form of tax and other charges charged by the government on a common man, I don't think the people enjoy the benefits for the tax they pay to the government. This money if used efficiently can be used to build proper roads and the previous contracts needs to be closed as they have not performed well. This is one of the responsibilities of government to provide proper welfare facilities to facilitate the people in our state.
