Tiruvallur - Singaperumal Koil Bypass Expansion Project will have Six Lanes

TNRIDC initiates tendering for six-lane road expansion, covering Tiruvallur - Sriperumbudur and Sriperumbudur - Singaperumal Koil sectors of the Chennai Peripheral Ring Road (CPRR), TNRIDC is proposing the construction of a 6-lane road.

TNRIDC has sought bids for a consultant to revise the 23.80 km Sriperumbudur - Singaperumal Koil project report, in accordance with updated Indian Road Congress guidelines, as the previous report dates back to 2017.

The Sriperumbudur - Singaperumalkoil road has been upgraded from two lanes to four and then to six lanes, including service roads, as part of the Oragadam Industrial Corridor Project by TNRIDC. Now, there is a need to enhance this road section to ensure controlled access, aligning it with other parts of the CPRR (Chennai Peripheral Ring Road).

With an estimated cost of Rs 15,626 crore, the 133 km CPRR will run from Poonjeri junction to Ennore port, passing through important areas including Singaperumal Koil, Sriperumbudur, and Kattupalli port.

There are five sections of the CPRR project. Phase one of NH-5 runs for 25.50 kilometers from Ennore Port to Thatchur, and phase two runs for 26.25 kilometers from Thatchur to the start of the Tiruvallur bypass.

  1. A 29.55 km stretch will connect Tiruvallur bypass to Sriperumbudur on NH-4.
  2. Another 24.85 km segment will run from Sriperumbudur on NH-4 to Singaperumal Koil on NH-45.
  3. A 27.50 km section will extend from Singaperumal Koil to Mahabalipuram on ECR.
