Residents Speaks…… :

SABARI, the resident of Taramani has put forth the following points about Taramani:

“ Taramani was once a drain area from the higher parts of the city, kind of bird sanctuary, it was much like forested Vedanthangal in the earlier days. Even now if we go from Velachery through train to taramani, We can see varied species of birds near the lake beside Taramani station!
And safety supposed to be the major concern when it comes to Taramani. We have railway station but it should have proper security. It could be better if the Tasmac should be removed from the main road to some other place.”

VALLI, another resident from Taramani says,

“Thanks to the mini bus service which has reduced my walking distance. But the frequency of the mini bus can be increased, right now we have mini bus every half an hour. There is no proper drainage system in our place. Traffic is heavy whole day. There is NO SIGNAL in Taramani link road and it invites problems to both pedestrians and vehicles as well. Taramani is surrounded with the IT parks and the government institutes. Now the roads are improving and proper street lights have been installed and put into use. Taramani has got its police station last year and the crimes has brought down since then.”
