As per media reports, most parts of the fast-growing Chennai suburban areas roads have developed potholes and citizens in the areas are being troubled a lot as the authorities concerned are not taking timely repairs to the roads. Residents say that the entire 14 km stretch of the Urapakkam GST road, leading to Vandalur and Kelambakkam roads, are filled with potholes, leading to frequent accidents.
The Tamil Nadu Government has sanctioned Rs 5.22 crore for the development of grid roads along the Chennai Outer Ring Road (ORR). This will involve alignment, design and land acquisition for the 62 km-long project that is being developed in two phases. Construction is presently on for the 30 km stretch of the ORR from Vandalur to Nemilichery, which is the first phase. Contact: Government of tamil nadu. Website: www.tn.gov.in
