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.

NHAI gets ready to build service lanes and underpass

Image

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) would soon begin work on building service lanes across minor bridges along the Tiruchi-Chennai Bypass Road and an underpass at the accident-prone Kondayampettai/ Sanjeevi Nagar traffic intersection on the road.

This was disclosed by Union Minister for Road Transport, Highways and Shipping Pon. Radhakrishnan while addressing a workshop on Road Safety in the city on Tuesday.

The move would meet the long pending demand of city residents. Construction of seven minor bridges in four locations to ensure continuous service road and a vehicular underpass near Kondayampettai connecting Kallanai Road from Srirangam on the Tiruchi-Chennai By-pass Road has been approved at a cost of about Rs. 31 crore, Mr. Radhakrishnan said. “The execution of the works will be start soon,” he said.

Apart from this, construction of service road on the left side of the Tiruchi-Chennai National Highway at Samayapuram, providing easy connectivity from Chennai to Samayapuram Temple road, and from Samayapuram to Tiruchi, at an estimated cost of Rs. 12 crore, is under consideration, he said.

The Kondayampettai intersection has been witnessing accidents frequently, ever since the bypass road was made a four lane highway by the National Highways Authority of India some years back.

A large number of vehicles, especially lorries and buses, cross the highway at the intersection from either side, creating chaos. The police have placed temporary barricades to slow down vehicles. Mr. Radhakrishnan had inspected the spot in April 2015.

Similarly, the lack of service lanes across minor bridges between Senthaneerpuram and the Cauvery bridge has been posing a threat to road users. Vehicles entering the highway from the city and those entering the city from the highway have to use the service lanes.

The absence of minor bridges has been leading to accidents. The situation was particularly bad near the Kumbakonathan Salai-Chennai Bypass Road intersection, Sanjeevi Nagar and Oyamari Road intersection. As the service lane does not run across minor bridges, vehicles are forced to use the main carriageway of the highway on both directions. Often, vehicles have to sneak across the main carriageway at these spots as speeding traffic moves in the opposite direction.

Welcoming the construction of service lanes and underpass, M. Sekaran, president, Federation of Consumer and Services Organisations, urged the Minister to expedite the construction works and complete it at the earliest.

Mr. Sekaran, who is also member of District Road Safety Council, also appealed to the Minister to take steps to ensure the construction of service roads along the city stretch of the Tiruchi-Thanjavur Highway from Ariyamangalam to Thuvakudi. He also pleaded for the construction of a subway at G. Corner intersection along the Tiruchi – Chennai Bypass Road, by connecting the Senthaneerpuram and TVS Tollgate road over bridges and allowing traffic beneath the extended bridge.

Bridge works resume

Image

Quote:
Work on the construction of bridge across the Tiruverambur - Pudukottai route via Keeranur has resumed after a gap of three years.

The stretch forms part of the widening of the Tiruchi - Pudukottai - Karaikudi National Highway.

The work needs to be executed from Tiruverambur to Keeranur via Suriyur and it forms a vital link between the Tiruchi and Keeranur stretch.

According to K. Mohanraj, founder of the Pudukottai District Association for Accident Prevention and Rescue Measures, the highway should be immediately widened and thrown open to traffic.

He said that this was one of the ‘black spots’ which two-wheelers and four-wheelers avoided due to lack of safety.

However, the National Highways Authority of India source said that the problem would be resolved once a large number of vehicles pass through the stretch.

The work on the bridge would be completed within four months, the source said.

^^^^
I think this is the bridge which is on Mathur to Thuvakudi Byepass Link Road---If that is the case, the report is wrongly mentioned as Keeranur instead of Mathur

Spanish infrastructure firm Abertis Infraestructuras SA buys Trichy Tollways

Quote:
Spanish infrastructure firm Abertis Infraestructuras SA has agreed to buy two operational toll road assets in south India from Macquarie Group Ltd for about Rs1,000 crore, said two people familiar with the development.

Abertis has signed a share purchase agreement to buy the two build, operate and transfer (BOT) toll roads, the Farukhnagar-Jadcherla highway in Andhra Pradesh and the Trichy Tollways project in Tamil Nadu, the two said on condition of anonymity as the talks are private.

Abertis’s bid beat an offer ranging between Rs700 crore and Rs800 crore for the two assets made by Tata Realty and Infrastructure Ltd (TRIL), one of the two people cited above said.

Mint first reported in June that Macquarie will sell its stakes in the two operational toll roads as it tries to deliver returns to its investors.

For Abertis, which is in the business of constructing, operating and maintaining toll-based highways, the deal in India would throw open a high-growth infrastructure market. The government had targeted awarding 25,000km of road projects in the current fiscal year, accelerating the construction of roads in an attempt to improve connectivity.

An Abertis spokesperson declined to comment, citing confidentiality agreements. Macquarie also declined to comment. TRIL did not respond to a query emailed on Thursday.

Selling operational road assets allows debt-ridden developers to reduce debt, private equity investors to offer returns to their investors, and long-term investors—such as pension funds—to buy revenue-yielding assets.

“We see the current environment as highly conducive for consolidation in the BOT space. With interest rates coming down and traffic growth picking up, we expect a surge in demand from developers/investors looking to acquire operational BOT projects with healthy financials,” PhillipCapital analyst Vibhor Singhal wrote in a 7 December report.

In 2009, Macquarie started its first infrastructure fund in India along with the State Bank of India, called the Macquarie-SBI Infrastructure Fund (MSIF). The fund, which planned to raise $3 billion, aimed at investing in infrastructure projects. SBI and Macquarie also jointly operate a domestic investment entity, SBI-Macquarie Infrastructure Trust (SMIT).

In 2013, GMR Infrastructure Ltd sold its 74% stake in the Farukhnagar-Jadcherla highway (GMR Jadcherla Expressways Ltd) to MSIF and SMIT for Rs206 crore. The 58-km project started operations in 2009 and had a total project value of Rs522 crore, according to the GMR website.

In the same year, the Macquarie funds bought a 74% stake in Trichy Tollways Pvt. Ltd, a joint venture project of Malaysia’s IJM Corp. Bhd and India’s Shapoorji Pallonji group, for about Rs275 crore. The 94km project has been operational since September 2009.


Abertis had looked at investing in the Indian roads sector during 2008 and 2009 but packed its bags soon after. It has road assets in 13 countries spanning about 8,000km and had revenue of €4.4 billion in 2015. As of November, the company had €31 billion of assets under management.
