With the Metro Rail construction beginning, T Nagar will have traffic diversions for the next few years.
What’s it about? For the past week, T Nagar had traffic diversions and one-ways. These will continue for the next three-and-a-half years, as requested by the Chennai Metro Rail. To ensure the smooth flow of traffic, 30 police personnel have been deployed in the area. There’ll also be more signboards.
- In and around Panagal Park, vehicles can travel on Thyagaraja Road towards Ma Po Si Statue. Buses going to Thanikachalam Road from Burkit Road will be diverted along Sivagnanam street.
- Vehicles from the Burkit signal going to Anna Salai along Venkatanarayana road will be diverted along Hindi Prachar Sabha and South Boag Road.
Broad changes: The traffic changes have converted most of Venkatanarayana Road into a one-way. Traffic is now allowed only from Nandanam toward Panagal Park. Traffic at the Pedestrian Plaza has been reversed towards the Teynampet junction from the Panagal Park side.
