In two weeks, the entirety of the Velachery flyover will be operational.
Story so far: Construction of the twin flyovers began six years ago by the state highways department. Construction of the pending arm is in its final stages. Currently, only the part from the Taramani Link Road to 100 feet Bypass Road is open.
- Cars and two-wheelers won’t face any problems as the roads have been relaid. Bus commuters still have to wait since the Vijaynagar terminus below is yet to be fully renovated.
- It has been a decade since the transport corporation identified a new site near the Velachery MRTS station for a new terminus. The existing one is stretched beyond its capacity.
Resident’s complaints: The closure of the median gaps on the main road near the flyover has angered motorists. They used to be able to turn right in front of the Grand Mall but now have to take a detour below the MRTS bridge.
