On 19th February 2017 we sent the following petition to Government of Tamil Nadu vide GOVTN/E/2017/00453.

Dear Team,

The following petition applies to State Transport Department/Metropolitan Transport Corporation (MTC). The distance between bus stops in Velchery – Tambaram Road between Tambaram and Medavakkam are uneven and disproportionate. The average distance between bus stops is supposed to be 700 meters. However the distance between Mahalakshmi Nagar bus stop and Kamarajapuram bus stop is more than 1 km.

Hence there is a urgent need for a bus stop to be created somewhere in the middle point between these two points. Without a bus stop this area is being literally taken up for their haggling and bartering by unscrupuluous auto drivers. Kindly look into the same.

The response from the transport corporation on 27th April 2017 is as below.

In this regard it is informed that the distance between Mahalakshmi Nagar and Kamarajapuram is arround 800 Meters. Already Rajakilpakkam bus stop is available in between the above places. At this bus stop Ordinary buses are stopped to pickup and set down the passengers. Passengers may utilise this bus stop. Lr.No.119/22049/TRG3/MTC/2017. Dated.21.04.2017.
