KANCHEEPURAM: Preliminary works are under way for setting up a Rs.1,300-crore container terminal in the Sriperumbudur Lok Sabha constituency, Union Minister for Shipping, Road Transport and Highways T.R. Baalu said on Saturday.

Inaugurating a ‘health mela’ at Sriperumpudur on Saturday, he said the Chennai Port Trust would acquire 64 acres at Gerugambakkam. The terminal, he said, would function as a “dry port,” where all procedures for export and import of goods could be completed.
