Traffic police have made several amendments to the routes around the home ground of Chennai Super Kings. The officials have made several diversions in the area located in the vicinity of Triplicane, since IPL matches are scheduled in the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk. These diversions in Chennai will be placed on 12th, 21st and 28th of April, between 1 and 7 pm. However, on April 4th, 19th, 30th and May 4th, 12th, 25th and 27th, the diversion will be in affect from 5 pm and last till 11.30 pm as per the statements released by an official.

In addition, Bells Road will be transformed into a one way stretch, which will have entry only from Wallajah Road during the timings of an IPL match. Private vehicles holding the letters M, P, T, W and V will be allowed from Anna Salai to Wallajah Road on Bells Road. On the other hand, the vehicles bearing B and R will be directed towards the park at the MRTS station or towards the Pattabiraman Gate of the stadium.
