- All these facts are true but well known, there is absolutely nothing new here !!!
OMR will take another decade (or more) to be at par with City CBD (in terms of infrastructure).CommentQuote0Flag
- This article highlights connectivity as the main issue for OMR.
If we had good connectivity to the IT offices in OMR, there is a greater chance of employees living in city continuing to commute from CBD to their offices. Its ironical but i think poor connectivity will lead to more people shifting closer to their office in OMR to cut the commute time, and may actually be good for the many residential projects being developed.
As for the state of other infrastructure like metro water and storm water drain, it will take several years to catch up. But thats how places like Velachery also developed - people moved in first and infrastructure followed many years later.CommentQuote0Flag
- I think for future they should start building an elevated road here. They can always charge higher toll for company buses/college buses.
Even if it takes fives years to build it, it will be of good use when the population/vehicular traffic increases in 2017.
I am sure if road widening will help if the traffic pours out of junctions and slow moving vehicles clog it up.
The elevated toll road could start from Madhya Kailash and end at kelambakkam, with only 3 or 4 exits at important places.CommentQuote0Flag
