Chennai: Koyambedu market to get major facelift with 7-acre park

Posted by

Chennai: In one of its efforts to increase more living spaces in the city, the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) is all set to develop a park outside the Koyambedu wholesale market. The CMDA has floated tenders for developing the park which will have greenery, walkways, a children’s park, and a special park for the differently abled.

The park will come up in front of the Flower market. Tenders have also been called for the development of a 1.5-acre park on OSR land in Ramapuram.

Meanwhile, speculation is on the rise that the CMDA is also planning to develop a 31-acre Urban Hub with a Cultural Centre, Park, and Museum at the Koyambedu Bus Terminus, as the inter-city bus services have been recently shifted from Koyambedu known as CMBT to Kilambakkam bus terminus.

The Koyambedu bus terminal was built at a cost of 103 crore and was opened in 2003 and is said to be Asia’s largest bus terminal. Sources say it is likely to be replaced by a big urban park as part of CMDA’s move to de-congest the city.
