The Greater Chennai Corporation is set to replicate the TN mega streets programme to make its streets smarter. The plan is to improve 471 bus route roads that cover a distance of 389 km
Under the project, the proposal is to re-design the streets with footpaths, provide underground ducting for all types of cables and make streets more vibrant with amenities. This is to ensure that the roads are not dug up frequently for utilities.
Some of the streets will also be redesigned with themes to give them an identity. “Unlike pedestrian plaza in T Nagar, all roads will not have wide footpaths. The idea is to have a connected network of footpaths on all roads. We are also planning for a cycle track network that can be linked with the cycle sharing system.
The Pedestrian Street Project was initiated by the Greater Chennai Corporation (GCC) in association with Chennai Smart City Ltd. The primary objective of this project is to beautify these selected streets in ABD Thyagarayanagar Area and provide citizens with unhindered walkways.
