When Mili is offered an elevator to a store near her gated community, located near the MRTS station in Velachery, she politely refuses. She wouldn`t forget an elevator that a neighbor at Vijaya Nagar bus station gave her one weekend. Vehicle users are coming in the wrong direction on both sides of the road, which further aggravates the problem. There are no sidewalks to add fuel to the fire. Pedestrians are forced to walk down the street and must be careful not to be hit by vehicles travelling at high speed. Vehicles are randomly parked on both sides of the road to the station. Sidewalks with barricades were to be built to prevent the parking of two-wheelers on the trail.â Water from adjacent villages, which was to flow into the Pallikaranai marsh, flooded residential buildings due to encroachments and garbage dumps on the canals and poor construction of the canals. This year, as a precautionary measure, we built ramps near the north and south side doors to stop flooding. Construction of the canal began years ago, but is not yet complete. Work is progressing at a snail`s pace. The State Highway Department, which is building two viaducts, one connecting the Velachery bypass road and the main Velachery road and the other the main Velachery road and the main Velachery-Taramani road, is expected to build the overpasses on time, unlike the diversion canal, residents said.
Although the terminus was only a stone`s throw from the gated community, it took them about half an hour to reach the terminus. â We have brought this issue to the attention of elected officials and traffic police personnel. But to date, no corrective action has been taken,” said Ramya, a resident. Similarly, pedestrians crossing the intersection of the main Vijaya Nagar road and the Velachery bypass road Velashery do so at their own risk. Vehicle users coming from Guindy (Velachery Bypass Road), Medavakkam and Thiruvanmiyur often skip the red light, making it difficult for pedestrians to get across the road. Apart from this, residents have expressed concern over the delay in completing the construction of a diversion canal on Taramani Link Road to transport excess water from Veerangal Odai to the South Buckingham Canal. “The sudden increase in commercial facilities on the line has led to a significant increase in car traffic. When I moved here in 2003, the traffic was fluid,” said Mili, a member of the Cee Dee Yes Regal Palm Gardens Resident Management Committee.
During the “December deluge”, the gated community suffered considerably. Residents, with the help of NGOs, carried out rescue and relief operations, distributing food parcels, water bottles, biscuits and candles to those in need. Residents also requested an opening on the median strip between Vijaya Nagar Bus Station and Velashery Viaduct. CeeDeeYesRegal Palm Gardens is a well-known residential project developed by Cee Dee Yes Infrastructure Development. The project is located in Velachery in Chennai and offers luxurious accommodation of various types, including 2 BHK, 3 BHK and 4 BHK. It is a well-planned project, equipped with all the necessary facilities and amenities for city dwellers. The project offers spacious and well-ventilated apartments amidst the large open spaces of the complex. In addition, the region offers high connections to various important places in the city. Since the project is developed with the right planning, it provides the required safety features and electricity and water 24/7. Traffic police stationed at the intersection often remain silent bystanders, residents say. Residents strongly believe that traffic congestion will be significantly reduced once the overpass is cleared of vehicular traffic. “We are forced to turn around at the intersection of Flyover Service Lane and Southern Sector Inner Ring Road (Velachery).
There is no crosswalk. Pedestrians run on the road between the terminus and the viaduct and throw caution in the wind,” said G. Subramanian, a local resident. Cee Dee Yes is a developer of new commercial complexes in the areas of commercial complexes and residential areas. They have extensive experience in both areas of real estate development and therefore offer buyers best-in-class properties in any industry. You believe in ethical business with quality work. The gated community is home to 413 homes, and many other residents can relate to Mili`s experience. (Clockwise from above) Pedestrians take to the road near the Velashery MRTS station.
