Cycling tracks on the Marina Beach closer to reality


What was initially a plan for basic beautification of the Marina beach road stretch now includes an integrated cycling track and aesthetic lighting arrangements.åÊ

Last year the Chennai Corporation made a statement about providing cycling lanes along major roads in the city. Close to 10 months later, that plan seems to be taking flight. On August 6th the Corporation of Chennai decided that along with a musical fountain, there will also be an addition of a 7km long cycle track as part of the beautification plan.

While this is only the first phase of the cycling track, the next phase is to cover Wallajah Road and Swami Sivananda Salai.

A plan for beach beautification was announced last year but was constantly delayed due to issues regarding resettlement of shopkeepers on the stretch. This time around the Corporation seems to have it all covered. Only time will tell now.
