Road traffic will be diverted through Madukkarai Market Road on the outskirts on October 23 and 24, as Southern Railway is taking up the work of replacing steel girders at road under bridge no. 528 at Madukkarai Railway Station Yard.
The two steel girders of the road under bridge will be replaced with concrete girders during the period, as three girders have already been replaced in the first week this month.
The Bridge No. 528 enables the crossing of Palakkad – Coimbatore Road beneath the railway track at Madukkarai Yard and therefore, the road traffic to Coimbatore from the Palakkad-Salem Highway will be affected during the work, an official release said.
The road will be blocked from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both the days.
However, no passenger carrying trains will be cancelled on this account, but some trains are to be delayed en route from 10 minutes to half an hour on these days.
