Hi Guys,

I'm evaluating a probable move to Chennai from Delhi-NCR. The office is in SP Infocity Perungudi. After searching various property sites, I found one very beautiful flat in Egattur on the OMR. The distance according to Google Maps is ~16KMs. What I'd like to know is the best/average/worst case commute times by private car between the two places.

Can somebody who travels on that highway please let me know the times?

Thanks & Regards,
TRS
Regards,
TRS

Most of time you will manage in some 30 min.

Hi,

I have relocated to Chennai and frequently travel on the route above. The biggest bottleneck between the two points is the Sholinganallur signal on OMR. It can take anywhere around 5 mins (best case, non-peak time), 15 mins (avg case) & 25 mins (worst case, peak time!). I'd say the traffic is not very dense otherwise on the road although it doesn't move fast either. Most of the people drive at a leisurely 40kmph only. Its at places like this signal and a few smaller ones that you have to stop. However, this road is not really an expressway. There are lots of intersections and no flyovers so you can not drive at speeds of 80-100 kmph.

Rgds,
trs

Thanks for the report back

Where is the place? I have not heard of it and can not find anywhere by that name on OMR around 16km from Perangudi, which would be approx behind Muthukadu backwaters?

Google Maps can Yes, just behind Muthukadu.

This is traditional "newly developed" area - one/few freshly built apartments, surrounded by the hats/small roadside shops. Want to buy anything but tali/samosas? Have to travel!

Oh, thanks! I had been looking on the map itself, and I still can't see it there, but you have found the right search, or got the right address to search for. I guess you know the area: I have never been down that stretch of OMR, not sure I've been further South than ECR Link Road, except on ECR.
