About 2000 arterial as well as interior roads were considered by GCC and out of those 400 roads have been chosen for the phase one work. An amount of Rs 200 crores would be spent by GCC in the renovation of these selected roads.

 As per an officer from GCC it was clear that the remaining 1600 roads were being scrutinised and work would be taken up later. He explained that the roads were selected based on parameters like priority usage, need for immediate attention, long pending need and public demand etc.  At an estimated cost of Rs 30 crores, roads along the bus routes would be re-laid.

It is worthy to note that tenders have been floated Ennore High Road, part of Ilaya street, Haddows Road, TTK Road, Surapet Main Road, Seeyalam Canal Road, Barnaby Road, Doveton Flyover Road, Anna Main Road, Shastri Nagar Main Road, LIC Colony first cross street, Eswaran Koil Street and Kumaran Kudil Main Road etc. With Rs 2.4crores, Marina Loop Road would be renovated soon by GCC.

It is known that the renovation works have been taken up by the GCC earlier in 1654 bus route roads in Chennai and most of the works have been completed. The civic body has proposed to repair or relay 3296 interior roads in Chennai such as Thondiar Nagar in Teynampet, Sasthri Nagar in Thiru Vi- Ka Nagar, Aziz Mulk Lane, Poes Main Road, Boat Club Road and Sir C.V. Raman Road etc.
