Chennai sources stated that to lessen the pressure of traffic during Deepawali festival in the city, the transport department has prepared a new chart of routes. Meanwhile as per report Perungalathur and Tambaram would usually be overcrowded during festivals and both government and omni buses would pile up. Furthermore the stretch between Chennai Mofussil Bus Terminus (CMBT) to Perungalathur would be choked with vehicles, all moving at snail’s pace.



An official said “We have received a flurry of complaints regarding this, and we planned to ease traffic this time. Accordingly, all south bound fully loaded buses, after picking up passengers, would not pass through Tambaram and Perungalathur, instead would take the Maduravoyal by-pass road and Vandalur Outer Ring Road (ORR) and finally reach Vandalur on October 3, 4 and 5”. However, those buses that are half filled with passengers would go to Tambaram and Perungalathur, picking up passengers on the way.

Hence the official also said that passengers who have already booked tickets online to board buses from Tambaram and Perungalathur, should go to the temporary bus stop Urapakkam (CMDA premises Kilambakkam) to reach their destination, on these three days. Moreover another chart issued by the transport department said that Andhra Pradesh buses would leave from Madhavaram Mofusssil Bus Terminus (MMBT), which was recently opened.
