Quite to the contrary, Chennai's beaches are in fact the RESULT of the port and other constructions on the coastline.

The sea current along Chennai's coast is from South East to North West, and erodes more than it deposits. The Marina Beach was barely a few metres wide in the pre-colonial days.

The construction of the Madras Harbour and Fort St. George by the British obstructed the sea current, and resulted in heavy deposits, which resulted in the formation of the Marina Beach in its current form, with a width of as much as 400m.

The same deposits are also responsible for continuously blocking the mouth of the Cooum River, which is why there are excavators stationed at the mouth of the river on a permanent basis to keep clearing the river mouth.

The series of breakwaters perpendicular to the coast line that can be seen north of Chennai Port are also intended to prevent erosion by the same sea currents.

FF that was nice piece of information. Thanks for the explanation..

So can we expect another good beach between Kattupalli and Ennore in next 40 years?

True it is counter intuitive but true.
