Moolakadai, which is pronounced as 'Moolakkadai', is a part of North Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. It is the gateway of North Chennai.

Moolakadai Junction is the place where G.N.T. Road (NH 5: Chennai-Kolkata Highway) and Madhavaram High Road (Perambur - Madhavaram road) intersect. Moolakadai is primarily a high traffic area in North Chennai due to the movement of Heavy vehicles (mainly containers) as most of those heavy vehicles have to pass through Moolakadai , to and fro the Chennai Port.

For those who come from other areas of Chennai, Moolakadai acts as the gateway to the areas like Madhavaram, Kodungaiyur, Madhavaram Milk Colony, Mathur MMDA, and Manali.
