The Race Course Road is an important connecting link road to the historic Guindy Race Course, which is a horse racing course set up in 1777 in Chennai. On this very road the The Madras Race Club was officially constituted in 1837 and is the oldest race course in India. The road gets used extensively as it is located within 100 meters from the Guindy Railway Station and the Bus Stop. Since this road gets visited by thousands of people going to the Race Course and to the Railway Station/ Bus stop, it needs cleaning and maintenance from time to time.
ITC Grand Chola, in its commitment to the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, conducts regular cleanliness drives of the area.
