Chennai civic body to spend Rs 2 bn on repairing key roads

Amid complaints of potholed and battered roads in many parts of the city, the Chennai Corporation is looking to re-lay or improve 38 arterial roads and expedite re-laying of roads that were dug up recently by departments such as Metro Water and Tangedco.

The civic body took into consideration about 2,000 roads, both arterial and interior, of which 400 have been selected for the first phase of work, and renovation is to be carried out at an estimated cost of Rs 2 billion. “The remaining 1,600 roads are under scrutiny and work will be taken up later. The roads were chosen based on priority of usage, need for urgent attention, long-pending need, and public demand,” a corporation official said.

Roads having bus routes are to be improved/re-laid at an estimated cost of Rs 300 million. Tenders have been floated for Ennore High Road, part of Ilaya Street, Haddows Road, TTK Road, Surapet Main Road, Seeyalam Canal Road, Barnaby Road, Doveton Flyover Road, Anna Main Road (from the junction of Ponnambalam Salai to the junction of Munusamy Salai), Sastri Nagar Main Road (from the junction of Lake View Road to the junction of Kakkan Nagar Main Road), LIC Colony 1st Cross Street, Eswaran Koil Street, and Kumaran Kudil Main Road. The Marina Loop Road is set to get a facelift at an estimated cost of Rs 24 million.
