New bypass sanctioned for Tiruchi (Near IT Park)

The city is all set to get a new bypass connecting three major national highways (NH), the Tiruchi-Thanjavur NH 67, the Tiruchi-Pudukottai-Karaikudi NH 210 and the Tiruchi-Madurai NH 45B.

The bypass, which would be a semi-ring road, has been sanctioned under the four-laning project of the Tiruchi-Karaikudi section of NH 210 by the National Highways Authority of India.

The new by-pass will run from Thuvakudi area to the Mathur region on the Tiruchi-Pudukottai Highway and then on to Panchapur on the Tiruchi-Madurai Highway. Another by-pass is being laid between Panchapur and Jeeyapuram on the Tiruchi-Karur Highway. Once the new by-pass between NH 67 and NH 45 B is laid, the city would almost have a ring road, with only the Tiruchi-Chennai Highway being the missing link.
