The City police have made elaborate arrangements to deal with the huge crowd of shoppers that is expected to pour into T. Nagar ahead of Diwali with chaos ruling roads leading to Usman Road and Pondy Bazaar during every festival season.
A number of measures taken by the police will be implemented in T. Nagar from Wednesday onwards.

Separate parking for auto rickshaws have been planned at Burkit road, Dhandapani Street, Venkat Narayana Road, Bashyam Road and Coats Road.
Ample parking space would be made available on Muthurangan Salai

play ground (100 cars), Thyagaraya Road -- western side (100 cars)
and eastern side (500 cars), Venkat Narayana Road (50 cars) and

paid parking at few schools in T. Nagar and we plan to continue
that," added Mr. N. Ravi.
