Vision Kovai Mission 10


RAAC - Residents Awareness Association of Coimbatore

Let’s create a peaceful, healthy living environment together!

The Ring roads and more than 100 scheme roads planned in the Master Plan of 1994 should be formed. All Highways passing through Coimbatore are to be converted as six-lane roads till the next major town. Perur and Maruthamalai roads to be widened as 4 lanes.

There are about 1.5 million registered vehicles in the district as on 2013 and, more than 1 lakh vehicles are registered every year. Coimbatore is centrally located, and the major cities Tirupur, Pollachi, Mettupalayam and Palghat are within a radius of 40 kms in 4 directions. The city is growing at a rapid pace.
