Opened in 1973, it was the first flyover in the country and in Chennai. Its main purpose is to allow traffic movement on Mount Road — now renamed Anna Salai — near Nungambakkam High Road (Uthamar Gandhi Salai) to continue unhindered by the cross traffic.</p> <p>It was built on the land originally housing The Gemini Studios (a contemporary of A.V.M.) along with property from the Woodlands Drive-In Restaurant.[citation needed] On two sides of the circle roundabout below the centre of the flyover are two identical statues of a man controlling a horse placed there to commemorate the banning of horse racing.</p> <p>Anna Flyover is now maintained by Aircel Cellular as a part of Corporate Social Responsibility, they have successfully implemented LED lighting accentuating the parapets of the anna flyover, this kind of LED lighting to beautify a public structure has been implemented for the first time in India by Chennai based Abra Media Networks; TNRIDC, a division of Highways has awarded the contract to Aircel starting from July of 2010.</p> <p>Anna Flyover has been beautified with other elements such as water fountains, landscaping of its 24,000 square feet (2,200 m2) traffic islands, cove lighting under the traffic movement area, restoration of the horse statue, a toilet for the police personnel, murals depicting social messages, etc.,</p> <p>Before climbing Anna Flyover (when heading in the direction towards the airport) to the left are the Oxford University Press and the United States Consulate, and to the right one can find the remains of the old Safire Theatre complex.</p> <p>Gemini studio has been demolished and a shopping complex called Parson Manor and a 5-star deluxe hotel called The Park have sprung up in its place. Opposite to these across the flyover lies the Semmozhi Poonga, the 20-acre, INR80-million botanical garden under construction by the horticultural department.</p> <p>In a lot of Tamil and Malayalam movies, especially those made in the 1980s and the 1990s, one can surely find a screen shot of the Anna Flyover from the terrace of one of the multi-storeyed buildings in the vicinity. Several song and stunt sequences in movies are filmed on this flyover as well.</p></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-map field--type-text-with-summary field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Map</div> <div class="field__item"></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-external-link field--type-link field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">External Link</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Flyover">Anna Flyover</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Location</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/15" hreflang="en">Anna Salai Road</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Category</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/324" hreflang="en">General</a></div> </div> </div> Tue, 19 Jun 2018 11:38:54 +0000 admin 17 at http://chennai-in-focus.com
