The pending construction work of flyover in Porur at the junction of Mount Poonamallee Road and Arcot Road is likely to resume shortly. The flyover construction work had been put on hold by the Highways Department as there was a delay on the part of Chennai Metrowater in shifting water pipelines that run beneath the roadâ€™s surface.
The Porur flyover facility would come as a big relief to the residents of fast developing areas around Porur and Poonamallee.
The heavy traffic flow at the Porur signal junction, especially from Arcot Road and Mount Poonamallee Road, often results in a pile-up. During rush hour, the wait for motorists to pass through the junction could be as much as 30 minutes. The traffic volume at Porur junction is increasing every day.
Vehicle-users taking Arcot Road and Mount-Poonamallee Road will have to bear with the traffic congestion at Porur junction for some more time until the flyover gets completed .
The proposed four-lane flyover which is being built along Mount-Poonamallee Road has been a long-pending demand of residents and vehicle users.
Vehicle movement on Mount-Poonamallee Road has now increased as a lot because motorists use the Porur intersection to reach places like Guindy, Meenambakkam and Tambaram .
