Genesis of Project

Due to heavy movement of traffic and on account of poor soil condition, the pavement of the Corridor had deteriorated. The opening of the Mass Rapid Transit Line along the first three km stretch and the presence of densely populated residential areas along the Kottivakkam-Perungudi stretch had also led to congestion and accidents. The IT Corridor Project aimed at improving the Corridor to a world-class facility in tune with the progressive and IT/ITES friendly image of Tamil Nadu.
