Kaliamman Koil Street widening; civic body starts work

Chennai Corporation says it is starting work on broadening the busy Kaliamman Koil Street which connects Arcot Road with Koyambedu. The road is to be widened at many areas and going by what we see on this road today, a large number of encroachments will have to be removed from one end to the other.

It is not clear yet if there will be need to acquire small slices of privately owned land to widen this road.

The demand for widening has been made for years; local community groups have been staged rallies but the action has been slow in coming.
