‘India’s Shenzhen’ struggles without adequate infrastructure and water
By The Hindu 14-Apr-2019
Often dubbed ‘India's Shenzhen’, the constituency is largely urban, while within the Sriperumbudur area, many villages dot the landscape, with infrastructure and water woes topping voters’ grievances.
A number of flyovers remain incomplete, including the ones at Pallavaram, Perungalathur, Kelambakkam junction and the Port - Maduravoyal elevated corridor. Long-pending demands for road overbridges and foot overbridges remain unfulfilled, while road and traffic conditions are far from ideal.
Voters in the constituency also want the widening of the Chennai-Tiruvallur High Road and a better sewerage network.
“We don’t have any water here. Also, there are frequent power cuts at night and in the morning,” says Egavalli, a roadside vendor at Mannur.
