The Corporation has begun work on a fish market behind the Santhome Church.
What’s it about? The fish stalls on Loop road connecting the Lighthouse and Foreshore Estate won’t be a hassle for commuters and vehicles. The Corporation is constructing a fish market on this stretch with new facilities. The market is being built under the Singara Chennai initiative for ₹8.5 crores.
- The market will have a sewage treatment plant to treat 40,000 litres of wastewater daily. It’ll have 366 stalls with parking for 60 bikes and 100 cars.
- Since business begins early at fish markets, a high mast lamp will be installed at the centre for proper visibility. It’ll also have rainwater harvesting facilities.
