From past few days the increased number of accidents on the Indore Ichapur State highway number 27 has increased immense. Last Month a heavy loaded vehicle rolled over a pregnant lady and the accident was that gross that the baby came out of her belly. And again on 2 dec a biker died on the same route as a heavy loaded vehicle ran over him. The accidents between Indore to Khandwa are increasing day by day and has already taken hundred of lives ,the route is a two lane route and heavy commercial vehicle and loaded trucks has got no other option but this small undivided heavyily conjested highway.
And thus we residents of Barwaha , sanawad and the villages around the highway seek immediate need for a bypass as this crosses from the city and is dangerous for the residents. The Bypass project is already decided & planned from past 10 years but the reason behind the delay is still not clear. Since 2013 we are hearing that the project approved and soon to start but its already 2020 end and there seems no progress.
Every Month more than 15 accidents happen over this 60 km filthy dangerous and deadly route but still no authority is concerned. Traffic is also increasing daily making road jams for hours. This route also head to one of the major tourist attraction of MP Omkareshwar and this bypass construction will enhance the tourism in the state as well.
