UNWARRANTED TRAFFIC JAM at THORAIPAKKAM SIGNAL

Dear Sir,

My office is located at Okkiam Thoraipakkam on OMR (Rajiv Gandhi Express way) I am travelling daily from KK Nagar to Okkiampettai on OMR near to Sholinganallur by public transportation bus (MTC Route No.570). Nowadays traffic jam at the Radial Road junction with OMR at Thoraipakkam (near Jain college) is becoming a big setback causing inordinate delay for our daily travel to our workplace. Though it is a T-Junction, unfortunately it takes minimum 20 to 30 minutes to cross this particular junction. From Perungudi to Thoraipakkam side we are to wait for just only one signal i.e., for the right turn vehicles that are heading from radial road (pallikaranai) towards sholinganallur. Otherwise, there should not be any delay for the straight traffic on OMR from Perungudi to Sholinganalur unlike the opposite direction where we have to wait for two right turns.
Whereas, T-Junction signal at Perungudi (MGR Salai junction with OMR near Apollo hospitals) , we are not facing any problem. All the vehicles cross this area within 2 to 3 minutes. It is acceptable, if this Thoraipakkam signal takes more time like 5 to 10 minutes. But, Unfortunately it takes 30 to 45 daily at times and even more on some days. If this is a situation now, we are not able to think about the future when metro rail construction starts in full swing.

Actually, the traffic police authorities should device a traffic plan to ease this traffic jam at this particular location where there should not a traffic congestion for more than 10 minutes. Even though we start early from our house to tackle this delay, we are not able reach our office on time put to tremendous pressure mentally and physically when we stand in the bus. Thousands of people suffer daily because of this improper traffic plan and handling at this junction.
I request the traffic department to take immediate action to device a workable solution to clear this issue and make our travel to our work place a pleasant one which would increase out productivity.
If not this road acts as a Express way, at the least it should pave way for us to travel without any hindrance lasting for more than 30 minutes
SOS
Awaiting your earliest action
Thanks
Kanmani
