Project Description

In Phase-I, the 20.1 km between Madhya Kailash Temple Junction to Siruseri is being widened to dual three lane carriageway with median, service road, non-motorised vehicle (NMV) lane, pedestrian footpath and planter strip. The work of dual three lane carriageway has been completed. The ECR Link Road has also been improved to dual two lane carriageway.

Another significant feature of the Project is the construction of service trenches/ducts for conveying utility lines including electrical, telephony and optic fibre cables/wires so as to avoid digging in future. The water and sewer lines are also being conveyed under the footpath.

Landscaping and arboriculture, road side arts and sculpture works and value added services have also been undertaken. A twelve lane state-of-the-art toll plaza has been located at Perungudi with a modern Toll Administration-cum-Office along with four satellite plazas at Pallavaram road, ECR Link road, Medavakkam road and Exit plaza at Navalur.

Honorable Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Thiru M. Karunanidhi inaugurated the six lane main carriageway of Rajiv Gandhi Salai on 29th October 2008 and opened it to public. Toll Operation was commissioned on 15th December 2008.

Four lane ECR Link road connecting Rajiv Gandhi Salai to ECR at Sholinganallur has been completed alongwith rehabilitation of the old bridge.

Centre Median & Street light poles have been completed from Madhya Kailash to Siruseri and ECR Link Road.

Service Road & Foot Path have been completed from Madhya Kailash to SRP Tools.

In all, 13 Nos Foot Over Bridges have been constructed and made available for use by public.

ITEL is also responsible for implementing a comprehensive Rehabilitation and Resettlement Plan for rehabilitating families and structures affected by the implementation of the project. Additionally, a number of community development initiatives have also been included in the project. The Government School in Thoraipakkam and Panchayat School in Navalur have been rehabilitated as part of the Project.
