The proposed Chennai-Bangalore corridor, modelled on the Delhi-Mumbai corridor (DMIC) is in the news with neighbouring Andhra Pradesh suggesting a new route passing through their state.

Andhra Pradesh officials want the corridor to link Nellore (in the east) and Anantapur (in the west) as Nellore is already home to an integrated business city ( Sri City) with a proposed airport at Nellore and sea connectivity through Krishnapatnam.
