Kathipara Flyover Directions to use

Kathipara Flyover is open for public use. We had published the aerial view of the flyover, a.k.a grade separator in our earlier post on the above subject.

As grade separators are new to Chennaites, it is still not comfortable for many motor riders to effectively make use of this infrastructure. Click here to view the Kathipara flyover map with instructions to use from all directions.

Hope this helps to ride over the grade separator !

Petrol Price cut in Chennai

In wake of falling crude oil price in the International markets, Govt. of India decided to reduce petrol and diesel prices in India by Rs.5.00 and Rs.2.00 per litre respectively. This is with effect from 00:00 hrs on 6th Dec 2008 (Midnight of 5th Dec).

While the premium petrol prices have been already reduced by petrol bunks in Chennai, after this announcement regular Petrol and Diesel are selling at 49.66 and 34.98 respectively.

It is stated by the authorities that it is only an interim measure, as the crude price faces high volatality in the markets. However the households are left with no news regarding LPG cylinder price. It is expected to get price cuts for LPG cylinders only in the next round of review of petroleum prices depending on the crude oil price movements in future.
