The Tamil Nadu government has reportedly proposed to build a ‘Green Corridor’ worth Rs.10,000 crore. The corridor will connect Chennai to Salem, via Harur and Tiruvannamalai. Union minister for road transport, highways, and shipping Nitin Gadkari was quoted as saying, “The proposed route will be an Access Controlled Green Express Corridor and will connect Tiruvannamalai. This will be the first such project to be undertaken in Tamil Nadu, on the lines of the Mumbai–Pune Expressway.” He also added that the project would halve the duration of the journey and reduce the distance by 60 kilometers.
