THORAIPAKKAM

Okkiyam Thoraipakkam, also spelt Thuraipakkam, is an area of Chennai, India. It is situated on what is called as the IT expressway, on Old Mahabalipuram Road, now known as Rajiv Gandhi Salai, the first six lane road in Chennai. Okkiyam Thoraipakkam is on the eastern banks of the Pallikaranai marsh which has been designated as a reserve forest area and is one of the few remaining significant natural ecosystems within Chennai . Thoraipakkam is 3 km in length, starting from Perungudi to its north.

The Thoraipakkam Pallavaram Radial road running east to west connects the IT corridor and the GST Road (Grand Southern Trunk Road) making Thoraipakkam well connected to the airport especially after the opening of the flyover (ROB) at the western end of the radial road in October 2010.This road plays a significant role,enabling quicker and easier movement of traffic between the major arterial roads to the south of Chennai including GST Road,Tambaram-Velachery main road and Old Mahabalipuram Road.
