MP seeks transfer of Defence land for road overbridge

He is scheduled to meet Railway officials in Tiruchi next week

With construction of the multi-level bridge at the Aristo Junction in the city running into road blocks owing to delay in transfer of land from Defence Ministry and Railways, Tiruchi Member of Parliament P. Kumar has written to the Defence Secretary seeking in-principle approval for the transfer of about 0.663 acres to the Highways Department for the project immediately.


He is also scheduled to meet the Railway officials in Tiruchi next week to end the stalemate in talks over the transfer of Railway lands that has been almost brought the project to a standstill.

The project, taken up by the Railways and the Highways Department, is being executed in two stages and envisages widening of the narrow road over bridge across the railway lines near the Tiruchi Junction on the Madurai Road intersection. In the first stage, a new three-lane road-over-bridge with five arms and the old bridge will be dismantled in the next stage to build a new bridge with two arms.

However, the first stage of the project has been stalled due to the delay in transfer of the Defence and more importantly the Railway lands. The first stage was scheduled to be completed by February 2017. Given the delay in getting the required lands, the Highways Department is mulling over going in for “foreclosure” of the contract for the first stage of the project. This could lead to a huge delay in the first and second stages of the project.

Mr.Kumar in his letter to the Defence Secretary pointed out that the work has been pending completion for quite some time. Stating that he had written several letters to the Ministry and met officials of the Ministry on the issue over the past few years seeking the transfer of lands, Mr.Kumar said that although five arms of the bridge have been built, the Chennai arm could not be built as the transfer of the Defence land was awaited. The first stage of the project could be completed only after in-principle approval was given by the Ministry, he said.

The Defence Estate Officer, Chennai, had raised a demand for ₹5.78 crore for the transfer of the piece of land and the State government has issued necessary concurrence to go ahead.

The State government has also written to the Ministry seeking the transfer of the land, Mr.Kumar said and urged the Secretary to accord in-principle approval immediately in the interest of the public.

Meanwhile, there has not been much improvement in parleys between Railways and Highways Department in getting the Railway land for the first stage of the project. The Highways Department had sought the transfer of about 2,000 square metres of Railway land for the first stage.

Speaking to The Hindu Mr.Kumar said that he was hopeful of getting the in-principle approval from the Defence Ministry soon.

“The approval is expected soon. Meanwhile, I will hold a meeting with officials of the Railways and Highways Department in Tiruchi to discuss of transfer of the Railway land and hope an agreement will be reached,” he said.

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
