RAIL and road have always spurred development. And, suburban south Chennai is no exception to this. Rail and road links have certainly shrunk distances and accelerated sustainable growth over the years. The Guduvancheri town that once appeared far to Chennaites is now seen closer than ever before. Today, the emphasis is more on the time taken for commuting to the city than the 36-km distance that the highway milestone indicates.
Eyed by realtors and public since the 1980s for plentiful groundwater and accessibility to the city, no more are plots in scores up for sale in the town, and, what is left, does not come cheap.
Some take pride in calling Nandivaram Guduvancheri `kutti Mambalam'.
There are two government higher secondary and four primary schools, besides the private ones. The Primary Heath Centre is said to be the next best to the government hospitals at Tambaram and Chengalpattu. A couple of private hospitals also serve the local population. The Metropolitan Transport Corporation operates almost one service every five minutes towards Chennai. This apart, the State Express Transport Corporation buses too halt by.
