Chennai: The Chennai Port Trust (CPT) has decided to develop the Thiruvotriyur trailer-parking yard on its own and raise tender by the end of the month, according to a senior port official to reduce the congestion on the Thiruvotriyur-Ponneri-Panchetti (TPP) Road.
“We wanted to promote the parking yard in a public-private mode, but even after two tenders, there was no response from private partners to develop the yard. So, we have decided to promote it ourselves,” said CPT deputy chairman P.C. Parida. CPT would hand over the parking yard to a private partner for operation and maintenance, he said. “We expect the yard to be ready by January,” added Parida.
