Yesterday afternoon, the traffic along the Chennai-Trichy National Highways was disrupted. The main reason for this sudden disruption was due to the leakage of LPG from a tanker.
A tanker was transporting LPG from Ennore in Chennai to Madurai and at around 1pm the leakage took place at Chengalpet. The tanker driver left the truck on the road itself and called the 101 fire and rescue services helpline.
The team from 101 then came and fixed the leak from the tanker. Later on, the LPG manufacturer was informed by the team and an alternate vehicle was arranged. The traffic police personnel blocked the traffic along the Chennai-Trichy NH for a few hours.
