The bad condition of the Manapparai - Veerappur highway has been posing a serious threat residents of Manapparai town. This is a vital link from Manapparai to Veerappur and a large number of school buses and college vans operate through this stretch which falls in the ward 27 of the Manapparai municipality.

According to Noordeen, a resident of Manapparai, the road links Karur district via Gujiliyamparai. It takes about 10 minutes to cross a distance of just 300 metres by two-wheeler or four-wheeler. A large number of buses and mini-buses are also being operated through this stretch.

According to municipal officials, a proposal has been drafted for re-laying the road to a length of about 5 km at an estimate of Rs. 90 lakh. Since the municipal funds were not adequate to meet this huge expenditure, a proposal has been drafted for getting the funds from special provisions, the source told The Hindu on Thursday night.
