    The Maduravoyal-Chennai Port elevated corridor project, which entailed an investment of ₹2,700 crore, has been expanded by two km as per the revised DPR being submitted to the National Highways Authority of India, said, Union Minister, Pon Radhakrishnan, adding that the length of the project that got stalled was 18.3 km and in the new alignment, the total length of the project is 20.3 km. In this connection, the Indian Navy and Chennai Port Trust have mutually agreed on the alignment, especially at the land point in the port. The naval authorities have agreed to exchange their land, housing their existing residential quarters, with Chennai Port Trust on provision of equal extent of land in order to enable the alignment of the elevated road pass through the existing naval quarters near Napier Bridge. The Shipping Ministry has also given in-principle approval to the proposal for alienation of Chennai Port Trust land to naval authorities in lieu of taking over the navy land by Chennai Port. The project will also have six lanes after its cross section has been upgraded from 20m to 29m as per the new Indian Road Congress manual guidelines.
