New and Serious Problem Adyar is confronting

Dear Friends,

I just learnt about a new and serious problem Adyar is confronting. Here are the full details.

+++

The Tamil Nadu State Government is planning to build a 47 km elevated express way which will include parts of the Chennai coastline. The first studies show that around 14 fishing communities (kuppams) and over 560 families will be affected by the project. The proposed route includes the Adyar beach near the Theosophical Society's compound. The entire unique ecosystem in that area will be severely disturbed.

The Adyar beach is one of the last undisturbed beaches in Chennai. Many residents from Chennai go there every day, through the TS compound, to enjoy the beach and the vastness of sea and sky. The beach is also a landmark in contemporary India as it was the place where renowned philosopher J. Krishnamurti was discovered a hundred years ago.

The Save Chennai Beaches movement has organized a petition addressed to the Environment Minister of the Central Governement in New Delhi, asking for the project to be abandoned. The link to the petition webpage is given below:

As we are all interested in Adyar, I would like to ask you all to consider signing the petition and support this important initiative to save the Adyar beach from unwanted development.

There seems to be some confusion about the current plans. This is a new plan which will affect the beach area of Adyar. The previous plan of highway was on the front of Adyar Estate.
