corporation1Following the completion of the electoral process across the nation, Chennai Municipal Corporation is all geared up to galvanise its infrastructure-related work.

Re-laying of 10,000 roads which were kept in limbo following the announcement of elections have gathered momentum. Mayor Saidai Duraisamy  held a meeting of the committee members and councillors to review the pending work in different wards of the metropolis. New deadline is to reconstruct the roads before the onset of the monsoon.

Another plan on the anvil is redesigning of the city bus routes. “Over 49 bus routes are set to be upgraded in the Adyar zone. The new design of the bus routes will ease traffic congestion, help pedestrians and improve parking space,” said an official of the Chennai Corporation. To facilitate redesigning of the routes, encroachments on some of the roads have to be removed.

The decision on the redesign of the stretches was taken by the sub-committee for non-motorized transport of Chennai Unified Metropolitan Transport Authority (CUMTA). The topographic survey of the 49 bus routes has been completed using Li-Dar, a technology using light and radar. The work included redesigning  of two-metre wide footpaths, street furniture and parking space.

The pedestrianization of Thyagaraya Road in T. Nagar, urban primary health centres and a cycle sharing system are some of the other key works that will be implemented following the notification on completion of elections.
