New Depot at Aravakurichi from Karur region

TNSTC builds depot at Aravakurichi – Reports The Hindu

The depot is likely to be inaugurated in December

The long-time dream of the Aravakurichi region to have a Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation bus depot is becoming a reality. The depot under construction at Aravakurichi at a cost of Rs. 99.50 lakh is all set to be inaugurated in December.

Even from the days Aravakurichi and Karur were part of the Tiruchi district, people in the region have been demanding an STC bus depot at Aravakurichi since the town lay on the crucial link connecting Madurai and the Deep South with Erode and Salem regions extending to Bangalore and beyond.

Besides Aravakurichi region people, in particular the traders and businesspersons belonging to Pallappatti, have been carrying on trading activities throughout India for several decades now and so had been demanding proper road connectivity and support facilities in the region. One among them, good road connectivity, came about when the National Highways Authority of India built the four-lane roads connecting Kanyakumari/Tuticorin with Bangalore and Chennai a few years ago benefiting Aravakurichi-Pallappatti belt immensely.

Now, the other aspect of better road connectivity, establishment of a TNSTC bus depot, is all set to be achieved with the civil work on the depot progressing expeditiously at the site that was bought more than 30 years ago.

During the late M.G. Ramachandran’s regime a 2.5-acre plot on the Aravakurichi-Pallappatti Road for establishing the depot was bought but nothing moved forward.

  1. @admin: I feel so happy that someone is taking an initiative to provide all these details without any expectations in return. Let me introduce myself, I am Ashwin Kumar and I ran a company called routes. We used to provide route, intra-city bus / train, inter-city bus, train and flight information on a mobile number +91 86 95 95 95 95. Now I am working along with TNSTC, SETC & MTC for a unified service as a consultant. It would be great to get to talk to you in regards the same to understand what all can be improvised in these departments. I hope to get a reply on this. Thank you for such a pain taking efforts that you have done here.

    Ashwin Kumar
