Going around the city

Just at the south-western edge of the city, this road finally begins justifying its fancy name. For a fair stretch, as it struggles to get out of the city, the Grand Southern Trunk Road appears to be neither grand nor a trunk road. But leaving Tambaram behind, it climbs up to the NH (National Highway) 45 and screams away to the cities of south Tamil Nadu, finally taking the opportunity of showing off its adjectives.

But if you want to stay up north, you can drift left to the curve that takes you northbound and get on to the Chennai Bypass. And then, you can skirt along the western edge and choose to get back in to the city at Porur. Or you could go all the way to Maduraivoyal before making a decision to either go further west, on to Bangalore or to turn east and go up Poonamallee High Road all the way to Fort St George.

What would you choose to do today?

They allow bicycles on your highways too? ;) I always worry about them when I see them with the fast cars.

>> Magiceye>> Never! :)

>> Hilda>> Oh, yes. And some of them think it is more fun going against the traffic flow. Never short of excitement!
