After a lull, work begins on the new Koraiyar bridge

Image

Highways department sources say that it would be completed by December

The new two-lane bridge across the Koraiyar on the city stretch of the Tiruchi-Dindigul Highway would be completed by December, sources in the Highways Department said.

Though the foundation stone was laid in March last year, the work had a sluggish start after preliminary works were carried out at the site.

The bridge was sanctioned after the city stretch of the highway was widened last year between Ponnagar and Kallikudi. The Tiruchi-Dindigul national highway (NH 45) has been widened to a four-lane road by the National Highways Authority of India from Kallikudi. The bridge would be built alongside the existing two-lane bridge, which was too narrow to accommodate the increasing flow of traffic.

The new bridge with a width of 7.50 metres would cater to traffic on one direction and the existing bridge would be retained for traffic on the other direction. It would run for a length of 105 metres and is expected to ease traffic flow near Dheeran Nagar.

Former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa had laid the foundation stone and the bridge was sanctioned at a cost of Rs. 4.90 crore, under the Comprehensive Road Infrastructure Development Programme (CRIDP).

This was one of the 129 works to be taken up under the CRIDP during 2015-16. But after the initial ground clearing works, there was a long lull .

When contacted, an officer in the Highways Department said that the work has resumed and fresh load tests would be conducted shortly. “There was a delay due to the soil conditions and we considered a change in design. However, the work has resumed now,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Highways Department sources disclosed that the government has sanctioned Rs. 75 crore under the CRDIP this year and 87 works would be taken up utilising the funds.

The works would include development of various road stretches in the district including the Manapparai-Thuvarankurichi Road, Musiri-Athur Road and Nochiyam-Machanallur Road where three new culverts would be built.

Coleroon bridge to soon become a reality

Work on the construction of a bridge linking Tiruvanaikovil Road and Kallanai Road across Coleroon is on in full swing. The bridge would link Kilikoodu village in Tiruchi district and Koviladi in Thanjavur district.

The bridge is being constructed at a distance of about one km from the Grand Anicut. The Highways Department has taken all precautionary measures to prevent entry of water near the construction site by forming a bund, although the Grand Anicut is now bone-dry due to failure of monsoon.

The government has sanctioned Rs. 67 crore for the bridge which will be one km in length. The bridge will have 25 spans each 42 metres long with a diameter of 2 metres. The work is expected to be completed within two-and-a-half years.

An official of the Highways Department said that the bridge was the long felt-need of the residents of both Thanjavur and Tiruchi districts and also of heavy vehicle operators. Presently, only light vehicles and autorickshaws can be operated through the existing bridge.

Farmers would be the largest beneficiaries as they would be able to operate trucks and tractors.

“Both Thanjavur and Tiruchi districts are agriculturally inter-linked districts. The bridge will form a short link between Tiruchi and Kumbakonam via Tirukattupaali, Tiruvaiyaru and Papanasam. Presently, the farmers have to take a detour via Thanjavur,” he added.

With the bridge, the distance between Tiruchi and Kumbakonam will be reduced by about 25 km.

By the time the land is acquired from Railways, Defense and private owners, it will take another 4-5 years for the ROB to be completed.

Looking at the picture, there is not enough space at lower level arms. Dindugal and Central bus stand arms are going to be cramped with buildings on either side.

Hope this is not going to be a half baked bridge from highways with cramped or no space in the lower lever arms.



A Substantial Portion of One of my favourite hotels, Sangeetha of Hotel Anand was razed down yesterday

All Buildings standing in that road are being razed down

The lower level arm of CBS side will not be either too small nor too big to navigate as I saw the works yesterday

Work on Thiruvanaikovil bridge gathers pace

Image

Construction of a new road over bridge (ROB) across the railway track at Periyar Nagar on Thiruvanaikovil Trunk Road in the city has gathered pace and is expected to be completed early next year. However, much depends on completion of land acquisition as service roads have to be laid on either side of the bridge before work on the approach roads can be taken up.

The project was sanctioned by the government in 2011, but construction began only last year. The four-lane ROB, being executed at an estimated Rs. 47 crore, had to be put on hold as the Highways Department had to await completion of the ROB on Odathurai Road to allow diversion of traffic towards Chennai Bypass Road. Although the ROB on Odathurai Road was opened in February last, work at Periyar Nagar ROB was deferred due to Assembly elections.

The new four-lane ROB will replace the narrow two-lane bridge, which had turned into a traffic bottleneck in Srirangam. The old bridge has since been demolished. A subway has been built and thrown open to traffic alongside the new bridge.

Work has gathered pace over the past few months, with about 55% of the main structure completed, sources in the Highways Department say. The bridge, which is being constructed by Rail Vikas Nigam Limited, a public sector undertaking, will run for a distance of about 1,430 metre and have a width of 17.20 metre. About 10,000 sq mt of land is to be acquired on both sides – towards Thiruvanaikovil and Mambazhasalai.

The process of land acquisition is being pursued by the Revenue Department, the sources said. Once the land is made available, service roads will be laid to facilitate diversion of traffic and construction of the approach roads on either side will begin. The project is scheduled to be completed by January 2018, but going by available indications it is likely to be completed by March or April next.
