Trichy to start work on industrial corridor CKICP

The road development work between Perambalur and Thuraiyur has been launched by the Chennai-Kanyakumari Industrial Corridor project (CKICP) to promote marketing activities between the western and central districts.

This project is worth Rs 1.32 billion.  This is one of the other 15 projects that are running in the state. This was initiated as a part of the East Coast Economic Corridor (ECEC) which included a road network in 23 districts. This is going to be a 31 Km link between Thuraiyur in Trichy district and Perambalur district, which will help the cement industry and shallot traders to stay connected to the western districts.

The existing road has a lot of steep curves which made it unsafe, so not many people were using it. According to the sources, CKICP will realign the road and straighten its curves. According to N Saravanan, Thuraiyur-based road safety enthusiast, this link can be utilized by the people who transfer goods to the western districts and Kerala from the central region. Also, the textile hubs in Tirupur and Karur can also utilise the link to reach Chennai via Perambalur in a short span of time.

According to an official involved in the road project, the work is planned to be completed before February 2023 if the pandemic situation and lockdown restrictions will not impact the progress. The banana and shallot farmers will be benefitted from this link.
