was developed by the Tamil Nadu
Tamil Nadu

Landmarks[edit] Anna arch[edit] A large twin arch called the Anna arch marks the entrance of the southern part of Anna Nagar
Anna Nagar
on the Third Avenue, which was built in 1985 by the Corporation of Chennai
Chennai
at a cost of Rs. 1.2 million to commemorate the platinum jubilee celebrations of former chief minister C. N. Annadurai,[3] when Anna Nagar
Anna Nagar
was still a developing area. It was inaugurated by the then chief minister of Tamil Nadu, M. G. Ramachandran on 1 January 1986.[4] Each arch stands 52 ft tall and weighs 82 tonnes.[5] The road from the arch leads to the roundtana (roundabout) which is a major landmark and for all practical purposes, the centre of Anna Nagar. In 2012, the arch was proposed to be demolished to leave way for a flyover that was planned to connect Anna Nagar
Anna Nagar
with Aminjikarai. Demolition work began on 2 September 2012. However, the alignment of the flyover was modified slightly to prevent the removal of the arch, and the arch was restored[5] at a cost of ₹ 6.4 million.[6] Anna Nagar
Anna Nagar
Tower[edit] The Anna Nagar Tower
Anna Nagar Tower
is a 138 feet (42 m) tall tower built for the 1968 World Trade Fair, by B. S. Abdur Rahman. Its main entrance is from the 3rd Main Road and a back entrance from the 6th main road. It is popular with morning walkers and joggers, and with families and young people in the evenings to play and relax. For a nominal fee, one could walk to the top of the tower from where excellent views of the city could be seen. Entry inside the tower has been stopped for the last few years due to safety concerns as there had been a few cases of suicide in the past. The tower and park are now renovated and has a skating rink. Currently, it boasts of a good turnout of children who come in for practising their skills on roller skates. There is also a group of regulars who practice silambattam - an ancient Tamil martial art form - here. From atop the tower one can have a panoramic views, and the rapidly changing skyline of the city can be appreciated. Transport[edit] Road[edit] Anna Nagar
Anna Nagar
has two bus termini, Anna Nagar West
Anna Nagar West
and Anna Nagar
Anna Nagar
East. The East terminus is located near the Anna Nagar
Anna Nagar
Roundtana while the West terminus is situated on the Inner Ring Road. The West terminus is one of the largest bus terminuses in the city. Buses to different parts of the city begin from the West Terminus. The roads in Anna Nagar
Anna Nagar
are designed based on a matrix structure similar to roads in developed countries in the western world; all the roads are laid parallel and perpendicular to each other. In addition, a standardized naming nomenclature is adopted. In Anna Nagar, 2nd, 4th and 6th Avenues run East-West and 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th Avenues run North South. All the streets are interconnected to these avenues. Areas expanded after the formation of the initial 1970 layouts do not follow the standard nomenclature. Anna Nagar
Anna Nagar
Roundtana[edit] The Anna Nagar
Anna Nagar
Roundtana located at the intersection of 2nd Avenue and 3rd Avenue is a sprawling and burgeoning high-scale commercial neighborhood. This was initially developed for the Madras EXPO during the 1970s and was named "Round Turn Over", whose name has colloquially changed to "Roundtana" with the use of Tamil Language. Railway[edit] The Anna Nagar railway station was inaugurated in the year 2003. It is located on the Thirumangalam road, a road that connects Anna Nagar West with Villivakkam. The railway line stretches for 3.09 kilometers and links Anna Nagar
Anna Nagar
with the Tiruvallur- Chennai
Chennai
suburban line. Between 2003 and 2007, five suburban trains were operated from Anna Nagar to Chennai
Chennai
Beach via Villivakkam. The station was closed in 2007 for the construction of the Padi elevated rotary. However, after the completion of the rotary in 2009, the station remained closed owing to its low patronage. There were plans to reopen the station in 2011.[7] None of them materialised, however.[8] Three underground metro stations, two in Anna Nagar

and one in Anna Nagar East, which form a part of the phase 1 metro project Politics[edit] Anna Nagar (State Assembly Constituency) is part of Chennai
