CHENNAI: Flyovers at four junctions in Chennai Mint Street, Basin Bridge Road-Cochrane Basin Road, Lattice Bridge Road in Thiruvanmiyur and Madhya Kailash temple-Information Technology corridor in Adyar are expected to come up in two years.
Detailed project reports are under preparation and will be ready in four-six months. Once the tendering process is over, the works will be executed in 15 months, says an officer.
Local Administration Minister M.K. Stalin with senior government officials reviewed the progress of the projects and advised them to expedite the process of implementation. He asked the officials to make arrangements for prominent display of details of the date of commencement of the works and the date of completion.
The Minister also emphasised the early execution of beach beautification schemes for the Marina, Edward Elliots, Thiruvanmiyur, and the stretch around and opposite Fort St. George. In a day or two, the Chennai Corporation will float bids for the stretch opposite the Fort.
Next month, tenders for Marina and Edward Elliots will be invited. By the middle of July, Thiruvanmiyur will be taken up. The schemes will be completed in three months. Noting that Rs. 25 crore has been allocated for the schemes, the official hopes that eventually, the cost will be less.
An official release said the Minister instructed that the work for improvement of amenities in 630 noon meal centres in the city be completed in three months. Eighty vehicles for carrying garbage should be procured and put to use immediately.
