The construction of the foot overbridge across the Nungambakkam subway to the burial ground service road near Loyola College is nearing completion.

The project, costing Rs. 5 Crores, to build the 24-metre-long and the five-metre-wide bridge was awarded in December 2020 by the Greater Chennai Corporation and is to be completed by February 2022.

An official shared in this regard: The steel girders have been assembled and the work will be completed soon!

Presently, the motorists going from Anna Nagar to Nungambakkam and T Nagar face huge traffic jams at the subway entrance and the Loyola College junction because commuters who get down at the Nungambakkam railway station usually, cross the road at these points.

The bus stands opposite Loyola College connects rail passengers to the rest of the city.

The Chief Engineer, Rajendiran, in charge of roads and bridges, shared in this regard:

We just wanted to give the railway passengers an easy way to cross the road. Right now, there is no median on Nelson Manickam Road, but once the foot overbridge is constructed we will build one to stop jaywalking. The burial ground compound wall has been shifted as well!
