Chief Minister MK Stalin inaugurated the second arm of the Velachery flyover on Saturday.

What’s it about? Constructed for ₹78.49 crores, the second arm of the flyover will connect the Velachery-Tambaram route at the Vijayanagaram bus stand. The flyover has a two-lane carriageway at Vijayanagar and the Velachery bypass. The first arm connecting Taramani to the bypass was opened last November.

  • With high traffic congestion in the area, the flyover is expected to help ease it. In particular, school students will benefit most from this.
  • For those who want to reach places like Guindy, Saidapet, ECR, IT Park, and surrounding areas, the flyover will be a welcome addition.

Another flyover: Stalin also inaugurated the four-way Perungalathur Railway bridge. It’ll be beneficial for people travelling to and from Chengalpattu. It’ll also connect to the Tambaram East Bypass Road and Srinivasaragavan Street.
