The Karpagambal Nagar – P S Sivaswamy Salai zone is. best avoided by motorists now. TANGEDCO has dug up one side of the busy road to relay a key power supply cable.
At peak hours, motorists, buses and vans cause traffic jams on this stretch, adding to problems on Luz Church Road.
Also, motorists flout the ‘one way’ regulation on this stretch in the nagar and add to the chaos.
TANGEDCO is redirecting this cable line from the Alwarpet side via this nagar and on to Royapettah High Road well before CMRL starts work on the Chennai Metro rail project in Luz and beyond. The power line used to run east towards Luz and then along R H Road.
