It is one of the core work areas of our Company. Our Company is a registered Class I contractor with the Highways Department, Government of Tamil Nadu since 2008. We undertake new road formation, widening of roads, four way road work etc and acquired expertise in this area over a period.
The improvement work, inter-alia, included widening of the select stretch of ECR to two lane paved/hard shoulder configuration, besides re-aligning some of the dangerous curves. To enhance safety conditions on the road, extensive road markings with thermoplastic reflective paints, cat’s eye, delineators and road furniture/signage are provided. The phenomenal increase in the traffic over the past few years and the increase in the number of accidents (mainly head on collisions) in the absence of centre median, have necessitated the Government to take a decision to widen this road to four lane with median from Akkarai to Mamallapuram, where most of the accidents are reported, as Phase-I. Improvements to the critical curves and junctions between Mamallapuram and Puducherry have also been included in this project. A host of value added services including 24-hour trauma care and ambulance facilities, round-the-clock patrolling and security services, vehicle break-down/tow-away services on-call basis are provided on the road.
