Chennai City is currently undergoing a large transformation thanks to a massive amount of construction projects which are currently underway. These projects are being carried out in both City of Chennai and its Outskirts. Once completed, these projects are expected to bring substantial benefits to the city, these projects have been strategically positioned to drive economic growth. One such project is the Pallavaram to Thoraipakkam Radial Road (PTR), it is a prime example of a venture that has managed to evolve a narrow-unpaved road in a stretch of an uncultivated land into an asset comprising of wide-extended well-designed roads in a vicinity that is currently deemed desirable by multiple SEZ, residential apartments and retailers. With grade separator and service lane currently under construction, vehicular traffic and congestion in this stretch are expected to drop making it safe and convenient for residents planning to take root here. Plans for construction of stormwater drains to reduce the risk of flooding in this locality are also present in the proposition, while currently in the queue it is expected to be completed before the end of the project.
Strategically located connecting two important parallel corridors of Chennai, the GST and the OMR, the Pallavaram to Thoraipakkam Radial Road (PTR) has the highest potential for development in the commercial and residential sector. While the former (GST) leads to the airport the later (OMR) leads to the heart of Chennai's IT hub. As of 2020, this stretch of land is expected to turn into one of Chennai’s largest office space accredited to the construction of major SEZ projects like Embassy Splendid Tech Zone, Featherlite IT Park and Chennai One SEZ. PTR is attracting investment from both IT and Manufacturing companies which plan to set-up large scale facility thanks to its connectivity & proximity to the airport, city centre and key arterial roads of Chennai. Transport facilities from Metropolitan Transport Corporation (MTC) buses, Chennai Metro and Chennai MRTS can be easily accessed from PTR in attribute to its connectivity & proximity to all major routes.
