The foundation stone for the first phase of the Outer Ring Road (ORR) was laid on Sunday by the Deputy CM M. K. Stalin. The ORR, developed along the periphery of the Chennai Metropolitan Area, is aimed at easing congestion in the city.

Stalin, after launching the first phase, said that the project’s first phase, covering 30 km from Vandalur (NH 45) to Nemilicheri (NH 205) was first mooted during the DMK government in 1967. Several highways on Chennai’s periphery, like the Tambaram-Chengelpet, Poonamallee-Bangalore, Avadi-Tirupati and Gummidipoondi-Kolkata, were not linked then.

The Chennai Bypass Road will soon be extended till Puzhal and work is progressing fast. The total cost of the ORR project is Rs 1082 crore. In the second phase, the 32 km stretch from Nemilicheri to Minjur will be completed.

Land acquisition for Phase 1 is complete said CMDA vice chairperson Susan Mathew. “Land acquisition for the second phase will be completed in a few months and the ORR shall be a valuable addition to the infrastructure”.
