Major, multiple traffic movement changes in the Mylapore region’s streets and roads will come into effect this Sunday, December3.
These changes are being made to facilitate major works of Chennai Metro, which is building two rail lines in Phase 2 of the project that will serve this zone – one that runs east – west and one that runs north – south.
Areas of R H Road, Luz, Mylapore, Abiramapuram, R A Puram, Mandaveli and Alwarpet will see traffic movement diversion changes soon.
On Friday evening, an official of Chennai Metro and local area police officials met a a private petrol bunk in Mandaveli to share details of the changes that will follow and listen to issues presented by a few civic-minded Mylaporeans.
Said Baskar Seshadri who attended this meet, “We told the officials that diverting buses and vans into narrow and busy streets like Thiruvengadam Street and Venkatesa Agraharam was not a wise move.”
“We said that life would be affected locally when a huge volume of vehicles were made to take narrow and busy areas of Mylapore zone,” added Baskar. ” Imagine the pressures in school and temples zones when buses will start using them.”
Chennai Metro officials have said that they will study the effect of the changes and promised further changes based on feedback.
