Public may be allowed at Marina in November, Corpn tells Madras HC

Chennai: Public are likely to be allowed at Marina beach from November, the Greater Chennai Corporation has informed the Madras High Court today.

The civic body had recently said public would not be allowed to Marina beach in the city till 31 October, in view of the lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19. This was informed to the Madras High Court by the Corporation’s counsel.

The High Court had recently directed the Chennai corporation to consider reopening the Marina beach once again for the public. The court wondered why the beach should not be opened completely when other sectors have been opened up as the lockdown was eased. The court directed the State government and Chennai Corporation to file a detailed report.

The two-member bench of justices Vineet Kothari and Krishnan Ramasamy had raised several queries to the Chennai Corporation.
