Chennai’s Marina & Elliot beaches will soon get pathways for physically disabled visitors
March 3, 2018
The popular Marina and Elliot beaches in Chennai will soon get separate pathways for people with disabilities.
The Greater Chennai Corporation plans to undertake the construction.
This has been planned so that physically disabled visitors can visit the beach like everyone else.
It is difficult to move a wheelchair on the beach sand. The pathways will remove that challenge.
The pathways will start from the shore and go up to the sea line.
The work will be funded by the central government's Swadesh Darshan scheme.
The cost of making pathways is estimated to be Rs 80 lakh for each beach.
Once they are made, Chennai will be the first city in India to have disabled friendly pathways.
The government of Tamil Nadu is all set to make the state more attractive for tourists within India.
