Traffic Diversion in Choolai for Sewer Work

Posted on: 16/Apr/2024 3:26:10 PM

The ongoing sewer pipeline-laying work in Choolai necessitates a temporary traffic diversion at the junction of Hunters Road and EVK Sampath Salai. Initiated by the Chennai Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (CMWSSB), the project aims to enhance the sewer network to accommodate the growing population in the area.

Key Updates:

- The work, which began on April 12, focuses on creating machine holes at the junction and extending sewer lines towards EVK Sampath Salai, ending near the fire station.

- A new pumping station is set to be constructed near the fire station on EVK Sampath Salai, serving as a collection point for sewage.

- Due to the presence of high-tension power cables underground, work cannot be conducted at night and requires a cautious approach.

- Traffic diversions have been implemented, redirecting vehicles through General Collins Road and Maddox Street to Vepery High Road.

- Temporary allowances for motorcycles and autorickshaws on EVK Sampath Salai may be discontinued as work progresses.

- Although the pipeline laying on Hunters Road is complete, the earthen patch remains unlevelled due to election-related restrictions.

Looking Ahead:

- CMWSSB aims to address traffic congestion by levelling the earthen patch on Hunters Road once election restrictions are lifted.

- The workforce continues their efforts, focusing on extending sewer lines into EVK Sampath Salai.

Stay tuned for further updates on the progress of the sewer pipeline-laying work in Choolai.
