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.
Chennaiites are all set to get three new pedestrian subways with escalators, a first-of-its-kind in the city. The subways would come up at CMBT on Jawaharlal Nehru Salai and Little Mount (near AG church) and MKN road junction along Anna Salai.According to sources in the highways department, the tenders received for appointing a consultant for preparing detailed project report (DPR) are under scrutiny. “A Bengaluru-based consultant is tipped to be appointed as a consultant,” sources said.
