Long drives on the highways in Tamil Nadu won’t be tedious anymore with the Tourism Department planning to set up high standard wayside facilities for travellers.
The high-tech facilities will come up at intervals of 50 km on major highways.
The centres will have restaurants, bookshops, medical shops, ATMs, handicrafts/handloom shops, toilets, automobile service centres and internet cafes, among others, Minister for Tourism, S P Shanmuganathan said.
Private and corporate investors would be encouraged to take up the projects, the minister said at a conference of tourism ministers in New Delhi on Thursday.
