Plan to remove encroachments

It is only a matter of time before all encroachments along the road leading to the newly constructed Railway Station at Tiruverumbur are evicted, it is learnt.

The encroachers of railway land in the Burma Colony to a length of about 200 metres from the Thanjavur Highway to Adarsh status station have been told by the railway officials that they would have to vacate, sources said.

The authorities conveyed its plan for eviction of the encroachment to the district administration and the City Corporation, according to official sources. Removal of the encroachments was vital for two-way movement of cars and larger vehicles, a senior official said.

The authorities recently assured to consider the plea by public welfare organisations for stoppage of express trains at Tirverumbur. In such an eventuality, road leading to the Railway Station will have to be wide enough for frequent two-way movement of vehicles as the number of passengers patronising the station will increase manifold, sources said.

The people will be given enough time to clear the encroachments by themselves. Eviction will be carried out forcibly only after issuing notices twice, the first with a deadline of one month and the second and last with a deadline of 15 days, another railway official said.
