The Tamil Nadu Government is planning to take up work on the Phase II of Chennai's IT Corridor - Old Mahabalipuram Road (better known as OMR).
According to Mr T.K. Ramachandran, Secretary - Highways & Minor Ports, Tamil Nadu, works on the 25-km stretch from Siruseri to Mahabalipuram will be taken up under viable financial format through the public private partnership model at a rough cost of Rs 550 crore.
He said the Government has taken up land acquisition exercise at a cost of Rs 70 crore, “and the road project is expected to begin soon”.
The OMR begins from Madhya Kailash temple in Adyar and goes up to merge with the East Coast road just after Mahabalipuram.
