City poised for expansion

The boundaries of the Tiruchi Corporation would soon be expanded to include Tiruverambur area also, said K.N.Nehru, Transport Minister here on Tuesday.

Speaking at a function to inaugurate issue of sale deeds to buyers of houses from the Tamil Nadu Housing Board at Navalpattu Anna Nagar on the city outskirts, Mr.Nehru also disclosed that a proposal for building a new by-pass road from Tiruverambur to the Tiruchi-Chennai highway via Vengur and Natarajapuram has been forwarded to the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) for financial assistance.

Another by-pass road linking the Tiruchi-Thanjavur, Tiruchi-Pudukottai and Tiruchi-Madurai highways has already been sanctioned, he said, highlighting the various development measures taken up in the city. About Rs.1,000 crore worth development projects have been sanctioned for Tiruchi over the past four years.
