Toll plazas along the ECR from Chennai to Puducherry

Eye catching paintings of local wildlife on Kadappa stone were erected at both tollgates between Chennai and Puducherry, along the East Coast Road (ECR).

Maintenance update: A few of the paintings have faded noticeably since they have no shade and have not been touched up since they were commissioned nine years ago.

Customers and fans of outdoor art please note: if artworks are left out in direct sunlight, the colours will fade, so repainting maintenance should ideally be undertaken every three years or so. Therefore, it is most economical not to place the art in direct sunlight without any kind of shade.

Niligiri Biosphere Nature Park, Anaikatti (near Coimbatore)

This is an eco-park that is visited by many tourists and school groups. Sensitizing them to wildlife is an essential part and in this context some paintings and models were developed which enhanced both conservation education and recreation.
