Chennai to add three more flyovers at cost of Rs 335 cr

Finance and Human Resource Minister PTR Palanivel Thiagarajan told the media that three flyovers will be constructed in Chennai at the estimated cost of Rs 335 crore.

While presenting the revised budget for 2021-22, he announced that the three flyovers will be constructed - one above Ganesapuram subway, the second at the intersection of Konnur High Road – Strahan's Road, and third at South Usman road.

The ruling Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) regime in 2006-2011 has first announced a flyover at Ganesapuram subway construction.

In 2009, addressing the flyover construction demand to ease the traffic, MK Stalin, who served as Local Administration Minister in 2006, said that 10 flyovers and bridges were to be constructed to reduce the city's traffic, including Ganesapuram subway flyovers.

According to a media report in February 2009, Greater Chennai Corporation (GCC) said that the project is being delayed, as military engineering services; a central agency has acquired the land and is denying to share for the flyover construction.

According to the media report, the acquisition of land costing Rs 16 crore is still awaiting clearance with the district revenue administration. However, in 2009, the railway agreed to share land for flyover construction.

Meanwhile, in January 2021, during the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) regime, the GCC proposed to build a flyover above the Ganesapuram subway in the Thiru Vi Ka Nagar zone. Following this GCC also examined the vehicular traffic in the area, however, the project did not take off.

The DMK regime has once again announced the construction of the flyover above the Ganesapuram subway.
