IT Corridor is an road project connecting Chennai ( near madhya kailash) with Mahabalipuram in Tamil Nadu over a length of 45 km. It was earlier called as Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR), starting from Madhya Kailash Temple Junction on Sardar Patel Road in south Chennai and ends in East Coast Road near Mahabalipuram.
TIDEL Park, along with number of BPO and IT/ITES companies was situated in OMR and hence this project provides the facilities for almost all major IT/ITES Companies which are already running in OMR and also for new ones to come up along the IT Corridor. There are also Prominent Institutes and educational institutions such as sathya bhama,Hindustan are also situated in this Corridor.SIPCOT has developed a Cyber City, with over 2000 acres in Siruseri, in the OMR making IT Corridor project to be implemented in world class standard.This project was going to be implemented in two phases.
In Phase-I, from Madhya Kailash Temple Junction to Siruseri will be six laned with median, service road, and pedestrian footpath. The ECR Link Road will also be improved to dual two lane carriageway.Its main aim is for the free flow of traffic in OMR and drawing huge investment from IT companies.For the free vehicular flow,it has proposed to construct a flyover at Thiruvanmiyur Road Junction.
Another feature of the Project is provision of service trenches for laying all types of cables thus avoiding digging in future.
