Re: Traffic and life on the roads in Chennai

The following 4 changes have significantly contributed to reduction in congestion on OMR. These changes should continue to exist.

1. Removal of toll plaza in Thoraipakkam & Perungudi
2. Removal of toll plaza in Navalur
3. A round-about style traffic movement in Sholinganallur junction (This is the no#1 change that reduced congestion)
4. A round-about style traffic movement in OMR-Pallavaram road junction (This is another critical change)

All of these together is easily saving me 30 minutes of travel time everyday!

Kudos to whomsoever who thought about items 3 & 4.
