Angered with a large number of road accidents along the Shantinagar roads leading towards the airport, residents of the area resorted to cutting of shrubs on the road divider.
According to locals, the shrubs and trees along the divider had grown way too much and had made the road a blind spot where in the person on one side of the road could not see the vehicles negotiating a turn on the other side making the road into a death trap. Residents said several calls made to the Highway authorities went unanswered and several request made to the authorities to trim the growing bushes were unheard. However locals claimed that the road which ends into a circle where every taxi and other vehicles exiting from the airport take a turn had witnessed minor accidents on a daily basis. Angered with no response, the locals of the area on Wednesday morning decide to trim the trees.
