City corporation officials are working overtime to improve the aesthetic beauty of the city under the ‘Ezhilmigu Chennai’ idea proposed by chief minister J. Jayalalithaa. Under this scheme, 70 arterial roads, bridges and flyovers would get a facelift. Besides sprucing up Neelankarai beach, a high-mast lamp will be installed there to ensure lighting and safety for beach-goers, corporation sources said.
Anna Salai, E.V.R. Periyar Salai and Jawaharlal Nehru Salai might get separate cycle tracks besides improved pedestrian infrastructures as part of the proposal to improve the arterial roads in Chennai urban area on par with world-class standards. The proposals were made by S.N. Bhobe and Associates, the consultant preparing the detailed project report for the World Bank-funded project.
