Pulicat Residents Urge Renovation of Flood-Prone East Coast Road

Residents of Pulicat in Tiruvallur district demand urgent renovation of the East Coast Road (ECR) stretch from Pulicat lighthouse to Kattupalli, plagued by seawater inundation and poor maintenance.

High tides regularly flood the road, making it dangerous for commuters and disrupting the transportation of fish to markets. Local fishermen and residents advocate for the construction of a bridge at Karungali village to prevent flooding and ensure safer travel. The ECR is a vital link for over two dozen fishing hamlets to Chennai, underscoring the need for immediate improvements.
