MEGA STREET PROGRAM, Chennai

MEGA STREETS PROJECT IN CHENNAI : PREPARATION OF STREET NETWORK PLAN AND DETAILED DESIGN :

Description:

The historic part of Chennai, the core of Chennai's urban expansion and located adjacent to the Fort area, North Chennai has excellent trade links offered by the Chennai Central railway station and the Chennai port but unfortunately remains underdeveloped compared to other parts of Chennai.

The Chennai Mega Streets program plans to convert all these challenges into opportunities and aim to leapfrog urban redevelopment in this area - to create a new Sustainable Walkable Model Urban precinct.

Leveraging the new Metro-accessibility to and from this area , the Vision is to redesign the public areas of North Chennai as a Visitors Paradise - with new pedestrian plazas lining up the retail frontage streets and, a new seafront promenade designed as a destination public space.
