OMR traffic: Sholinganallur snarl

Those of us who take OMR to work or for business commute know  how long it takes to clear Sholinganallur traffic junction. Think of residents living in and around this place. They get trapped in knots of traffic for atleast 20 mins. on the first and last laps of their daily commute, says a report in The Hindu.   
Sabari Terrace resident Harsha Koda  says traffic inflow via Medavakkam-OMR link road, from Tambaram-Velachery main road can be halved, if it is channeled through the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) which has connection to OMR at Karapakkam.
Mr Koda who is secretary of Sabari Terrace Apt. Owners Association, however pointed out that a trench dug across the SEZ road blocks traffic to OMR. Residents have reason to suspect that trench is there to block motorists from taking the SEZ road that by-passes the Medavakkam toll plaza.. The way out is for TNRDC - the road development coompany - to set up a toll booth on SEZ road, to tap Karapakkam-Madhya Kailash traffic. They could recover the cost in a year or two.
