Other than the Southern by Pass having several expected importance, it has actually come with a lot of negative effects to the forest more than was imagined.
There is environmental degradation in the region to unimaginable levels. For instance, the area that has been consumed by the construction in general is too big resulting to serious impacts on the forest:
1) Animals have been forced to migrate to other parts.
A section of land without any animal.
2) Dumping of plastics in the forest.
Dumped plastics in the forest
Part of the Southern by pass.
3) Unauthorized entry to the forest whereby anyone can easily access the forest without the notice of the forest rangers.
These are some of the consequences that this construction has caused and are being observed in the forest.
