Title: Request to speed up the construction of Tharamai Road to shollinganalur in South Chennai Parliamentary Constituency Tamil Nadu.
DR.T. SUMATHY (A)THAMIZHACHI THANGAPANDIAN (CHENNAI SOUTH):
Hon. Chairperson, Sir, I thank you very much for having allowed me to raise a matter of urgent public importance.
Corridor-3 of Chennai Metro Rail has been divided into three segments and the crucial link from Tharamani Road to Shollinganalur, which is a part of my constituency, has not yet been initiated to tenders.
Sir, the IT expressway, spanning 45 kilometres, is a crucial limb of the Chennai City which is home to almost all modern IT companies. It was during the regime of our greatest visionary leader, Dr. Kalaignar, that the Metro Rail and the IT expressway were kickstarted. A further facelift to all these projects was given when our party leader, Thalapati M.K. Stalin was the local administration Minister. But what has happened now is that, as it is the wont slackening attitude of the present AIADMK Government, proper thrust has not been given to speed up this project.
Sir, through you, I would like to ask the Central Government, which co-owns the CMRL, to speed up the process and to set open the road which is a very crucial stretch because everyday more than one lakh vehicles ply through that stretch. So, it will definitely ease up the lives, particularly of the South Chennai people, of my constituency by giving them a traffic-jam free road.
