The Madras High Court has ordered commencement of the stalled 19-km Chennai Port-Maduravoyal Elevated Corridor project.

The Rs 1,800-crore project was stalled last year by the Public Works Department seeking realigning of the expressway, which the department said encroached the Coovum waterway in some parts.

The project was mainly conceived for speedy evacuation of cargo from Chennai port.

A Division Bench comprising Justices N Paul Vasanthakumar and P Devadass has aside the PWD order. It also directed the State Government and all contesting respondents to extend full co-operation for continuance of the project.
