CHENNAI: A PIL has been filed in the Madras High Court for a direction to the TN Housing Board to construct a road and a bridge on the Sunnambu Varavaikal Odai in Chembarambakkam in Tiruvallur district, after obtaining necessary permission from the CMDA and the local panchayat.

The vacation bench before which the PIL from D Munian, president of Chembarambakkam village panchayat came up for hearing on Wednesday, ordered notice to the authorities concerned, including the EC, returnable by July 4.

According to petitioner, The TNHB is laying a 500m long road, and also constructing a 145m-long major bridge across the ‘odai’ without obtaining planning permission from the CMDA and building permission from the panchayat. The TNHB has blocked the water flow by constructing 145-meter-long katcha road. If it rains it will heavily affect the villages on both sides of the odai. Petitioner sent a representation on April 9 with no avail, hence the present writ petition.
