National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) on Friday carried out an eviction drive to eliminate the blind spots on the Trichy-Dindigul NH83 near Vaiyampatti flyover. The service road of the elevated stretch passing through the locality was encroached upon by makeshift shops thereby obstructing vehicular movement.
