Need for improved transportation to cover Navalpattu

There has been a compelling need for improved transportation from the Navalpattu area, as per the outcry from local residents. The following two posts from The Hindu are as below

From : K.P. Leon,Navalpattu Annanagar.
About 3,000 families are residing in the Tamil Nadu Housing Board houses at Anna Nagar and Police Colony, situated at Navalpattu Panchayat. A large number of office-goers and students residing in these areas travel to Main Guard Gate.
But there are no adequate bus services. A minimum of four buses may be introduced from Anna Nagar and Police Colony to Main Guard Gate via the two routes of Junction and Tiruverumbur respectively.

From:R. Hariharan,Airport Colony.
Exclusive bus service to and from airport

Many flights are being operated from Tiruchi airport. The Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation is operating only one bus from airport to the city.

This causes a lot of hardship to the people as they have to pay exorbitant money for the autos and taxis. Also, the residents of Kamaraj Nagar and other areas adjacent to the airport have to depend on the buses which ply from OFT/HAPP/Police Colony to the city, which are always crowded.
It is high time that the transport authorities operate more or exclusive bus services from and to airport.
