Porur Junction is a key point in this stretch where Mount - Poonamallee Road is perpendicularly cut by the Arcot Road. Arcot Road is a State Highway that connects Kodambakkam/Vadapalani and its surrounding areas with Porur and continues to Kundrathur and goes all the way up to Sriperumpudur.
Sri Ramachandra Medical College and Research Institute is one of the well known landmarks of this area. This was founded in 1985 as a medical college and became an university later. Currently there is a functional multi-speciality hospital there with over 1500 beds and medical university that offers courses in over 40 medical specialities.
The Porur lake that lies between the Porur Junction and Sri Ramachandra Medical College, is a large source of fresh water in the area and is also used by the Chennai Metro Water Department for distribution of drinking water to the city.
Right in between the Porur Junction and the Porur Lake, the Chennai bye-pass road passes through, with an option to enter and exit that road from Porur. This road branches out of the GST Road from Perungalathur, just before Tambaram and goes all the way upto Red Hills/Puzhal where it meets GNT Road (NH5), the road that connects Chennai to Kolkata. There is an entry exit point in Maduravoyal, from where we can take the Poonamallee High Road, that connects Koyambedu and rest of Chennai and also the Bangalore High Road towards Poonamallee & Sriperumpudur. Thru the bye pass road, we can reach the hitech industrial area of Ambattur also.
Ramapuram (aka Ramavaram) was famous in the olden days as it was the home for the former Tamil Nadu CM, MGR. After that when L&T ECC built a landmark building for its office that became famous too. The Ramapuram area has industries like L&T ECC, Audco, L&T Infotech, WS Industries etc.
Ramapuram also has one of the famous multi-speciality hospitals in Chennai, MIOT Hospital. It started as a Orthopaedics & Trauma Care Center and grew to become one of the well known hospitals of the city within a short period.
DLF built a large IT Park / SEZ in the area that literally changed the face of this area into a hitech industry zone. This park now has several thousand employees housing a number of IT majors like IBM, Syntel, Cognizant, iGate, Mphasis etc. There are several other IT SEZ projects in the pipeline and when they all start functioning, this area would become yet another IT hub of Chennai. HP is functioning in its own campus and several BPO companies are also operating from this area.
SRM Group's Eswari Engineering College and SRM Dental College & Hospital are also adding feathers to the cap of Ramapuram.
Moreover this stretch lies in the proposed mono rail corridor of Chennai, which would make sure that the areas are well connected with the rest of the city in the future and thus making its growth sustainable.
