Aalamparai Road, through which most of the traffic is flowing in and out of Nagercoil town isn't made for the traffic it is compelled to handle. Moreover, it narrows out at a few bends and the newly laid road stands a foot above the ground, breaking off at the edges and the sides. A few cars and autorikshaws have already rolled off the road's edges and the traffic snarls last for hours. With no traffic cop on this stretch, even minor traffic incidents have to be managed by the drivers themselves or the locals of the place. Unless the Aalamparai road is made into a one-way either for entry or exit of small & light vehicles, and heavy vehicles kept off the road, it spells trouble to all passing through.
Nagercoil exiting Traffic Diversion through Aalampari road is not a good idea as the Aalamparai link road is not wide enough for two way traffic.
Traffic on Aalamparai road comes to a halt every few hours due to vehicles going both ways - entering and exiting Nagercoil Town.
The newly laid Aalamparai road narrows out at a few bends that could pose serious risk to travellers. At some places the edge of the tar road stand a feet above the ground. It breaks off easily as vehicles move to the edges and has already resulted in cars and Auto rikshaws tumbling into the paddy field on one side or the canal on the other side.
Heavy vehicles & mini-buses too ply on these road causing traffic snarls.
Heavy & Commercial vehicles are supposed to take the long way into Nagercoil Town through the Erachakulam-Puthery-Vadasery route.
All the heavy traffic into town from the West (Trivandrum-Marthandam direction) now gets diverted into Aalamparai road on the way to entering Nagercoil through the East side.
Elsewhere, in Asaripallam Road, which has now become the Town Exit to Trivandrum, vehicles seen parked on both sides of the road - thanks to Lance Marriage Hall & VLR Hotel - both of them dont have a ground floor or basement parking.
Double parking infrot of the marriage halls opposite RC Bishop House, Asaripallam Road.
Twin bustops on both side of the Kanniyakumari Govt. Medical College & Hospital bring traffic to a halt every five or ten minutes. All along, no traffic police has been sighted in any of the critical traffic hotspots.
