Bridges and grade separators have been constructed in places like Koyambvedu, Velachery and Medavakkam in Chennai. The former chief minister of TN, Mr. E. Palaniswami has urged the TN government to open these as soon as possible.
It must be taken into note that the motorists plying via Koyambedu were forced to suffer from the traffic congestion. Truth is that the previous government had built a flyover at a cost of Rs 100 crores and till now the facility at Koyambedu was not inaugurated.
In December 2020 itself almost 90% of the flyover works were completed and remaining work is taking a lot of time now. It is mentioned that due to delay in completing the project plus festival season traffic congestion has increased here. Bridge projects in places like Velachery and Medavakkam must also be opened by the government. An amount of Rs 110 crores and Rs 148 crores for Velachery and Medavakkam respectively were sanctioned by the previous government is known.
