There may soon be hope for motorists who struggle with the chaotic traffic on roads connecting Poonamallee High Road and Arcot Road.
The Chennai Corporation Council is likely to pass a resolution on Wednesday on the construction of a long flyover connecting the Ega theatre Junction and Valluvar Kottam.
The civic body will also begin a feasibility study for flyovers to connect other major arterial roads in the city.
The Corporation had earlier announced the construction of a flyover at the Valluvar Kottam High Road-Sterling Road Junction.
But the proposal was modified to create a longer flyover connecting the arterial Poonamallee High Road and Arcot Road.
Tamil Nadu Urban Infrastructure Financial Services Limited will commence a feasibility study of the flyover at a cost of Rs. 90 lakh.
Feasibility studies of more flyovers near Madhya Kailash, St. Mary’s Road and Kaliammankoil Street are also likely to be approved on Wednesday. The aim is to ease traffic congestion in areas such as Koyambedu and Adyar.
Pedestrian subways on Purasawalkam High Road, NSK Salai, Kamarajar Salai and the Konnur High Road-Medavakkam Tank Road junction in Ayanavaram are facilities under consideration in the feasibility study.
The proposals will be implemented based on the feasibility reports.
