Map for Ongoing Work

METRO WING

          The economic growth and development of a Metropolitan city within a State is a growth indicator. The infrastructural developments provide the necessary trigger. Faster and safer mobility, seamless multi-modal traffic movement is the key solution. With this objective, to provide better connectivity and sustainable transport solutions to the growing demand of Chennai Metropolitan Area (CMA), the Chennai Comprehensive Traffic and Transportation Study (CTTS) was initiated by the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA). An exhaustive study was conducted during 2007 through the nook and corner of CMA, exploring all the resources.

          The goal of CTTS is to provide solutions for the challenging transportation issues and shoulder the increasing traffic burden within CMA. Various transport strategies have been proposed to address the growing traffic demands in CMA.

          Metro wing was established to implement the projects for the improvement of transport network in and around Chennai City. This wing is headed by the Chief Engineer and functions with a Superintending Engineer and 5 Divisional Engineers. The Metro wing plays a significant role in realizing the vision of 2nd Master plan.

          With an aim to decongest the urban traffic stream and to reduce road accidents within the CMA, the road network improvement plans such as Grade-separated facilities, High level bridges, ROB / RUBs, Widening of roads/ bridges and forming link roads, Pedestrian - specific projects such as Foot Over Bridges(FOB), Skywalks and Subways are being implemented by this wing.

The projects are as follows:-

PEDESTRIAN INFRASTRUCTURE FACILITIES

                Pedestrian, the most Vulnerable Road User (VRU), is often the victim of road traffic accidents. Through pedestrian specific projects, pedestrian fatalities are prevented and reduced.

SKYWALK

An innovative approach such as Skywalk, which is an elevated walkway built over a road, linking 2 or more locations, is an appropriate solution for safe & secured pedestrian crossing.

The gateway to the Chennai City is Tambaram. Railway station, Mofussil bus terminal and Metropolitan Transport Corporation (MTC) bus stand in Tambaram are located on both sides of the GST road. High volume Pedestrian traffic is experienced at this location. The FOB and Skywalk with escalator connecting Tambaram railway station and Bus Stand have been sanctioned for Rs.19.75 Crore, to alleviate this problem. The work is in progress.

Further, DPR is being prepared for Providing Skywalk, Escalator and other accessories connecting Eastern and Western parts of Tambaram town with the existing Bus stand, Tambaram Railway station including improvements to existing Bus stand.

WORKS SANCTIONED DURING 2018-19

The preparation of DPR is being carried out to decongest the traffic at the following locations.

  • Construction of ROB at Km 75/6 of Chennai- Thiruttani – Renigunta Road (SHU148) in lieu of Existing two lane ROB.
  • Construction of Grade Separator at the junction of Sardar Patel Road and Rajiv Gandhi Salai at Madhyakailash.
  • Construction of Foot Over Bridge with Escalator at Km 9/300 in Inner Ring Road near Kendriya Vidhyalaya School.
