CHENNAI: Minister for MSME and Tamilnadu Urban Habitation Development Board TM Anbarasan on Saturday started construction work on bridge in Adambakkam.
The bridge, which is 22.4 meters long and 11.5 meters wide, is being built at a cost of Rs 5 crore.
The corporation said residents living in Jeevan Nagar have to take a two-km detour to reach the Medavakkam main road. The minister said that once the work on the bridge is completed, residents will be able to directly reach the Medavakkam main road. The working period is two years.
In an address to journalists, the minister said that there were problems with water stagnation in Alandur before. “Now, after draining the stormwater and the pumping station work, there is no water stagnation,” he said.
He added that the encroachments in Veerangal Odai were removed at a cost of Rs 13 crore.
“There are problems in Mugalivakkam in Alandur zone. We are also solving these problems,” he added. More pumping stations are coming up for the added city corporation areas to also address the problem of road encroachments, he said.
“We are also carrying out projects worth Rs 124 crore to replace sewer pipes to address road encroachment problems,” he said.
In addition, work would be started on the renovation of Chembarambakkam overflow water storage quarries. “The water will be used for Kundrathur and Mangadu panchayats,” he said.
Corporation Commissioner Gagandeep Singh Bedi, Mayor R Priya and others were present during the event to inaugurate the bridge.
