With the residents of Polichalur up in arms, the expansion plan of the Chennai International Airport is getting mired in controversy. Expanding the airport means that close to 1,500 acres (6 km²) of the surrounding areas like Anakaputhur and Polichalur (a town which is situated north west of Pallavaram) will be taken over by the government. But the residents want none of it. They want the government to look for an alternate site.
