People used to advise that venturing past the freeway to Tambaram after Velacherry-Vijayanagar junction late nights is not safe since the road looks very lonely and deserted. If you could access any newspaper archives, you can see a good number of waylay robberies along this stretch. I think those things are slowly getting things of past. At least, I saw three important entities that are extending the busy stretch from Vijayanagar junction till Pallavaram - Thorapakkam radial road junction till Jerusalem Engineering College.
The good busy entities that I could see along the stretch are:
- Dr. Kamakshi Memorial Hospital, Pallikaranai
- Cognizant Technology Solutions New Building just opposite the Dr. Kamakshi Memorial Hospital
- Jasmine Infotech software facility
