Work on the trumpet interchange, which will connect East Coast Road with the Chennai Peripheral Ring Road, will start soon

The 1.8 km long, ₹40-crore facility will allow travel to Ennore without having to go into Chennai

The construction of a trumpet interchange at Poonjeri, which would connect the East Coast Road (ECR) with the Chennai Peripheral Ring Road (CPRR), is slated to begin soon. This 1.8 kilometer long project, projected to cost 40 crores, will provide a key link for ECR traffic to access CPRR and go effortlessly to Ennore without entering the city.

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has confirmed that the contractor has obtained the required land for the project. They also stated that they had secured the necessary no objection certificate from the Water Resources Department, as the trumpet interchange will run along the Perumal Eri embankment. The project is slated to be finished in November 2024, coinciding with the completion of the first phase's first package, which runs from Mamallapuram to Mugaiyur.

ECR is being expanded in stages, and tenders have been published for the third package, which will cover the route from Marakkanam to Puducherry. The land acquisition for the Mugaiyur to Marakkanam stretch is about complete.

The 132-kilometer-long Chennai Peripheral Ring Road (CPRR), with six lanes, will connect cars to the Chennai-Bengaluru Highway at Sriperumbudur and the Chittoor-Thatchur Koot Road, enabling access to Andhra Pradesh. This road is being built in five stages, with work now underway in the Ennore to Thatchur (section 1) and Thatchur to Punnavakkam (section 2) portions.

Land acquisition is in advanced stages for the Punnavakkam-Sriperumbudur stretch and the Singaperumal Koil-Poonjeri stretch. In the section between Sriperumbudur and Singaperumalkoil, the construction work has already been completed, marking significant progress in this critical infrastructure development.
