Congestion Due To Omni Buses

Congestion created by omni buses at Trichy Central Bus stand will further increase as the arm towards the bus stand from multi- level road over bridge has been opened. This has been mainly created due to haphazard parking of the buses to board passengers and other goods. Until now thee buses were using space at the ending point of the bridge and now as the bridge is set open to moving traffic these omni buses will cause congestion. Except for a very few renowned bus operators the others do not have their own parking space. The problem is acute during late night hours outside the bus stand since omni buses bound for Chennai from destinations such as Karaikudi, Rameswaram, Dindigul and Theni have a stopover in Trichy. This situation cannot be avoided completely due to lack of separate parking space for omni buses as in other cities. Indiscriminate parking of omni buses around the Central Bus Stand will continue inevitably until a suitable location is found for a temporary stand for omni buses. Omni bus operators have also been pursuing the demand for a separate bus stand with the district administration and local body authorities for long, but to no avail.
