The Tamilnadu Chief minister has announced in April 2012 the building of the Chennai Peripheral Link Road(CPLR). CPLR will link Mahabalipuram with Ennore skirting Chennai.
CPLR is part of the Government’s initiative to ease congestion in Chennai.

The Route

The Road will be 162 KM in length. It will connect the East Coast Road, GST Road, the Chennai-Bangalore Highway, the Chennai-Tiruvallur High Road and GNT Road. Thus it touches the industrial areas at Maraimalianagar, Singaperumalkoil, Oragasam, Sriperumbudur, Thiruvallur and industrial areas in North Madras. In Sriperumbudur a dry port is coming up. Also, Sriperumbudur will have a greenfield airport. The estimate for the cost of the project is Rs. 1,420- crore.
New roads linking Mahabalipuram with Singaperumal Koil and Poonneri-Kattupalli Links spanning 83.2KMs will have to be laid.
Also, the  existing roads running to a length of 78.60 km including the Singaperumal Koil-Sriperumbudur Road (23 km), Sriperunibudur-Thiruvallur Road (18 km), Thamaraipakkam to Periyapalayam (12 km), Puduvoyal to Pulicat (6 km) and another 15 km to Kattupalli will be improved under the project.

Detailed Project Report

An amount of Rs 10 crore has been allotted by the Govt for preparing a Detailed Project Report. Also, a consultant has been appointed for this. The project report is to be submitted within 15 months.
The  Detailed Project Report is to study all related requirements. Road alignment, the disturbance to the residential habitats, facilities required like bridges, road-over bridges, bypasses etc, are some of them. Once completed, the Road will give high-speed connectivity to Ennore port. It’ll cut accident rates inside the city. Also, it will attract industrial investments and reduce repairs to city roads. The existing Chennai by-pass and the first phase of Outer Ring Road, which is under construction, see a high volume of traffic, there is a need for another road to skirt the urban area. The Chennai bypass alone witnesses over 3.8 lakh vehicles a month.
