Commuters Advised to Take Alternate Routes as ECR Traffic Rerouted for Pipeline Works

Posted on: 30/Mar/2023 10:13:31 AM
In preparation for the upcoming drinking water plant, which has the capacity to produce 15 crore litres of water, pipeline works are currently underway at the East Coast Road (ECR) area of Chennai. The water from the plant will be supplied to several parts of South Chennai, including IT park at Siruseri.

On Wednesday, two sides of ECR were dug up using earth movers in front of the plant to lay the pipelines, leading to a rerouting of vehicles for one kilometre between Soolerikadu and Krishnan Kaaranai. Barricades have been placed in the dug-up sections of the road, and vehicles from Chennai to Puducherry are being allowed through the other side.

The road in the Western direction where the works are underway opposite the plant has been closed, and vehicles are being diverted towards the East to reach Puducherry and Chennai. Commuters are advised to take alternate routes and allow extra travel time to avoid delays.
