Developments in OMR:
In its first attempt to decongest the busy road and ensure traffic flow is smooth, the corporation has put the process of land acquisition on the fast track, and the second phase, for road widening between Siruseri and Mamallapuram, is now in its final stages. Officials of TNRDC say they will, if the Election Commission permits, float a tender on Tuesday for a detailed project report on the feasibility of an elevated expressway from Taramani to Mahabalipuram.
The government plans to invest Rs 5 crore on the study which will also look at the possibility of a bus rapid transit system (BRTS) on the road to Mahabalipuram. The study is likely to take a year and the expressway could take more than five years to be built after that. It is expected that around 13,000 PCUs (passenger car units) pass Tidel Park every day. Study is conducted to understand When the road is widened and expressway is built it will be able to support twice as many vehicles. The study will predict the growth of vehicular population and analyse the current traffic. Based on this, it will suggest where it would be ideal to have exits from the elevated expressway. Based on a study on the possible efficacy of a series of grade separators along OMR, the first 22km of the expressway, from Taramani to Siruseri, will cost at least Rs 1,500 crore.
