Chennai, May 3: Tamil Nadu TASMAC employees were creating some new innovative ways to make tipllers are happy. After the Supreme Court ordered a ban on sale of liquor within 500 metres of highways, a large number of liquor outlets remained closed across the country. Nearly 45% TASMAC outlets closed after this order.


 

However Tasmac authorities have also started looking for out new places to operate the shops. Recently Kerala bar has built a 250 metre-long maze that leads to the actual establishment to escape Supreme Court's liquor ban. Now Tamil Nadu TASMAC has construced a new bridge near liquor shop to ensure a hassle-free drinking experience. 

According to reports from Times of India, TASMAC outlet at E Pudhur in Trichy has constructed a bridge across a river to ‘save’ tipplers from a police checkpost on the main road leading to the shop. Inebriated customers on two wheelers are reportedly being pulled up by police at the checkpost on the way to E Pudhur and Trichy city. The bridge over the Koraiayaru river lets them bypass the usual route. 

As per the reports, tripplers in this area facing difficulties after the state-run liquor stores in Kirapatti and E Pudur were closed down following the Supreme Court's orders on April 1. People from these areas then had to travel up to 14 km to access liquor and risked getting caught by police. 

But PWD officials, claiming that the bridge was constructed without the knowledge of the department.
