TN to develop road networks along Chennai ORR

The Tamil Nadu government on January 23 announced that a detailed project report will soon be prepared for the development of grid roads along the Chennai Outer Ring Road (ORR). The government has sanctioned Rs. 5.22 crore for the study that will look into various aspects including 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 forms the first phase. The financial bids for the second phase from Nemilichery to Minjur in the north are currently being scrutinised.

Meanwhile, the State Highways Department and the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) have jointly identified 18 road networks to be developed on either side of ORR. This project would involve acquisition of 240 hectares of land and cost about Rs 700 crore. This cost does not include the cost of land acquisition.
