Conversion of State road into National Highway welcomed

The State Government's move to convert the Tiruchi-Namakkal highway — the last of the State Highways in the district — into National Highways has been welcomed by the travelling public, as the time to cover the 88-km stretch will be reduced by at least 30 minutes once the road is developed properly.

It now takes a little more than two hours to travel to Namakkal from Tiruchi via the Pitchandarkovil-Thiruvasi, Thudaiyur-Kiliyanallur-Gunaseelam route since the stretch has winding roads till Musiri.

Beyond the town, the road is in poor shape well beyond Thottiyam up to Valaiyapatti in Namakkal district.

The conversion will particularly be of immense utility for travellers going to Bengaluru from Tiruchi and Delta districts, and people from the Western districts using Tiruchi International Airport frequently.

“The Tiruchi-Namakkal stretch is the only weak link,” according to a software professional travelling between Tiruchi every weekend from Bengaluru.

A good number of private vehicles bound for Salem take the Karur road till Kulithalai and cross the Cauvery river overbridge to reach Musiri.

However, the vehicles are necessitated to enter into Kulithalai town to take the road leading to the Cauvery overbridge.

The project, for which the land acquisition is yet to begin, comes under the Strategic Road Expansion Programme IV - Western Tamil Nadu, according to Highways Department sources.

Land acquisition along a straight alignment in the Tiruchi-Musiri stretch will be a herculean task, according to the trading community that has been awaiting the strong road link in the stretch for long.

Four-laning of the Tiruchi-Namakkal State Highway forms a part of the fulfilment of Vision Tamil Nadu 2023, envisaging completion of the identified projects by 2020, official sources pointed out.

Namakkal – Tiruchi road to become National Highway

Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami has said that Namakkal – Tiruchi Road will be made four-lane and steps will be taken to upgrade it as National Highway.

At a public meeting held to observe MGR birth centenary here on Sunday, the Chief Minister said that the 70-km stretch will be upgraded to National Highway.

Land acquisition will begin soon. He said that land acquisition for the bypass road at Tiruchengodu is nearing completion.

Steps will be taken to construct an outer ring road to ease traffic congestion in the town.

Work was in progress to make the Vellakovil – Pallipalayam Road four lane.

Five foot overbridges on Tiruchi-Thanjavur highway

Quote:
NHAI move comes in the wake of numerous accidents

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has proposed to construct five-foot overbridges (FOB) between Vallam in Thanjavur district and Ariyamangalam Palpannai near Tiruchi for safe pedestrian movement on Tiruchi-Thanjavur Highway.

According to official sources, the design for construction of an FOB at Vallam, close to SASTRA University, has already been approved.

In the wake of numerous fatal accidents in recent years, the NHAI has been examining ways to address the problem. The main demand of the travelling public has been the laying of service lanes along the vulnerable Palpannai-Thuvakkudi stretch.

Pedestrian crossings on the road are quite frequent in places such as Thuvakudi, Tiruverumbur, Kattur, and Ariyamangalam. The foot over bridges have been planned at locations where there are a number of educational institutions to facilitate safe movement of students, the sources said.

All set for bypass road work

National Highways Authority of India awaits environmental clearance

Even as the new Collector has expressed keenness to pursue some of the long-pending infrastructure projects in the city, the National Highways Authority of India is awaiting environmental clearance to resume construction of the bypass road connecting Tiruchi-Madurai and Tiruchi-Karur national highways.

Collector K.Rajamani, who took charge last month, in a recent interaction with media had said that steps would be taken to execute some of the pending projects including this outer ring road. The road, a semi-ring road around Tiruchi, would substantially reduce traffic congestion in the city. The total length of the bypass road was around 17 km.

However, NHAI sources indicated that a decision on the environmental clearance from the Union Ministry of Environment and Forest is expected soon and once the clearance was obtained the work would resume.

The bypass road, which would run from Panchapur on NH45 via Thayanur to Jeeyapuram on NH 67, had remained unfinished for the past few years. The NHAI, the executing agency, had sought fresh environmental clearance from the Union Ministry for the revised alignment after the Public Works Department gave its consent for the revised alignment of the road last year. According to NHAI sources, the application was expected to come up for discussion at the expert appraisal committee after which a decision would be known.

The project was taken up as part of widening of the NH 67 executed on Build Operate and Transfer (BOT) basis. The project ran into controversy over its alignment and land acquisition issues since 2006-07. The project was halted midway in 2010 after the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court, while hearing a petition from farmers’ organisations, struck down the NHAI’s plan to lay the road across Kothamangalam, Kallikudi and Punganur tanks.

The farmers had complained that the road if built cross the tanks would affect irrigation and their livelihood. The court had subsequently directed the NHAI to lay the bypass road without affecting irrigation sources.

The NHAI had sought the environment clearance for the revised alignment finalised after a public hearing held by the district administration. Farmers organisations have also been demanding the laying of the road expeditiously on the revised alignment.

Maintenance work on NH nearing completion

Image

The National Highways Authority of India has taken up work on the maintenance and upkeep of the Tiruchi - Madurai National Highway in a phased manner.

The cumulative length of the highway under current maintenance including those of service roads is 124.8 km and is being done at an estimate of Rs. 90 crore. The maintenance is inevitable as the original highway was laid about five years ago.

“It is necessary to ensure proper maintenance of the highway once in five years,” an official told The Hindu at Valanadu where the work is being executed now. A major part of the work had been completed and just 20 km is yet to be completed, the source said. The work is being executed only during the daytime for ensuring safety. A number of road workers are deployed with red flags, signalling the vehicle drivers to take diversion. On an average, 2.5 km is being renovated daily.
