Aristo Junction ROB work gets the go ahead as Railways and the Highways Department reach an agreement

Quote:
Decks have been cleared for the Highways Department to proceed with construction of the road over bridge (ROB) at the Aristo Junction in the city as senior officials of the department and the Railways managed to reach an agreement on land transfer at a meeting convened by P. Kumar, Member of Parliament, here on Tuesday.

Although nearly 80% of the first stage of the project has been completed by the Highways Department, the remaining portion could not be completed as stalemate prevailed in the talks between the two agencies over the land to be transferred by the Railways.

The project, taken up by the Railways and the Highways Department, is being executed in two stages and envisages building a multi-level bridge replacing 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 is being built at a cost of ₹ 44.28 crore adjacent to the existing bridge. In the next stage, the old bridge will be dismantled and a new bridge with two arms will be built in its place.

At Tuesday’s meeting convened by Mr. Kumar, the two agencies were said to have reached an agreement on the issue, paving way for the Highways Department to continue the work. “An agreement has been reached and the Highways department will begin the work on Wednesday,” Mr. Kumar said without giving details after the meeting.

P. Uday Kumar Reddy, Divisional Railway Manager, Tiruchi, C. N. Nagarajan, Divisional Engineer, Highways (Projects), Tiruchi, R. Poonkodi, Assistant Divisional Engineer, Highways (Projects), and senior Railway officials participated in the meeting.

According to sources in the Highways Department, the estimated Railway land required for the two stages of the project has now been revised to about 1,250 square metres. The Highways Department has agreed to build two via ducts including one to provide a pathway between the office of the Divisional Railway Manager and the Railway officers’ quarters on about 1,330 square metres of its land.

As per the agreement reached at Tuesday’s meeting, the Highways Department would begin work on Wednesday on completing the service road on the Railway portion towards the Dindigul Highway. Work on other parts of the Railway land at the project site would be taken up subsequently after obtaining concurrence from the Railway authorities, the sources said.

The first stage of the new flyover was scheduled to be completed by February 2017. But the project has suffered a time overrun due to issues in land transfer and acquisition.

Approval for transfer for a small stretch of land of the Defence Ministry is also awaited. This apart, some private lands have also to be acquired near Aristo Hotel. The Highways Department is now hoping to complete the first stage of the project by the end of December

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.
