The hustle and bustle

Do you feel clogged up even during non-peak hours in Chennai? The increase in private vehicles and the ongoing construction work have made traffic to stall. Chennai alone hosts a fourth of Tamil Nadu’s motor vehicles!

A recent study by Tamil Nadu Urban Infrastructure Financial Services Ltd revealed that in 2011-12 the number of two wheelers and motorcars registered came to 16.06 lakh while public transport registered during the period was 1.38 lakh. Tamil Nadu has a two-wheeler population of 1.30 crore which accounts for 78 per cent while cars form 14 per cent. In 2011, Chennai alone added 2.22 lakh new two-wheelers and over 52,000 new cars.

With new public transport projects and small busses being introduced, the state seems to attract commuters to use public transport. But still the last leg connectivity and time becomes a constraint in public transport. With the metro rail to come in 2014, the city can expect some decongestion.
