T Nagar smart city projects to take off soon
The Greater Chennai Corporation could commence the Smart City projects in T Nagar by the month of August. Under the area based development programme of the central government-sponsored Smart Cities Mission, T Nagar will undergo a bunch of infrastructural changes as the civic body rolls out the over Rs. 1,400 crore project phase-by-phase.
The smart roads project, which covers 23 interior roads in the area including the Maharajapuram Santhanam and Muthurangan Salai , would be initially flagged off. Tenders for these projects have been called for and a few bidders have already expressed interest. Other major smart city projects like the construction of multi-level car parking lot and the pedestrian plaza could follow the suit.
