The modernisation project of Perambur abattoir is likely to
take off soon. It is learnt that the project would have a waste management and
effluent treatment plant at a cost of Rs 60 crore. Chennai Corporation has
invited bids for a design-build-operate-transfer (DBOT) contract for the plant.
The project ran into trouble for seven years due to various factors, but now
with Mayor M. Subramanian taking earnest efforts to renew slaughter houses in
different regions of Chennai like Villvakkam and Saidapet, Perambur abattoir is
not a distant dream anymore.
