Chennai’ites are awed with this grade separator. Of course with some confusion. With more road signs coming up the facility is a great boon to those who cross Kathipara

Traffic bottleneck in this crucial gateway is a thing of the past.

Now Chennai looks for the Padi Grade Separator to become operational soon.

    In the evenings, i see the traffic going smooth near the Kathipara. Not sure how it is during the morning peak hour.
    Nice photos :)
