Now, a new rehabilitation plan for Cauvery bridge

Highways Research Station experts inspect the 40-year-old structure

The Highways Department would soon draw up a proposal for a new rehabilitation plan for the Cauvery bridge in the city.

A team of experts from the Highways Research Station in Chennai, which inspected the bridge earlier this week, would submit its recommendations soon. The rehabilitation-cum-beautification project taken up last year, especially the construction of a new concrete parapet, had raised the hackles of conservationists and brought to fore safety concerns.

The Highways Department has taken up the project to spruce up the nearly four- decade-old structure. Over the years, parts of the bridge, especially its parapet and pedestrian pathway, have suffered damages.

The bridge, a vital link in the city between Chinthamani and Mambazhasalai, was built in 1976. It has 15 spans and runs for a length of about 550 metres.

Conservationists and engineers had contended that the construction of a solid brick wall in place of perforated concrete structure (with gaps) was not only an eyesore but a safety threat as well. The perforated structure was meant to allow wind or flood waters to pass through, they said.

Besides, the Cauvery bridge was a pride and a landmark in the city and its aesthetic value should be preserved, they had argued. Representations were sent to the district administration and Highways Department.

The Highways Department has since planned to rectify the shortcoming and restore the perforated structure.


Meanwhile, the experts who inspected the bridge and the parapet on a request from the Highways Department officials here also examined whether renovation needs to be taken up to prevent erosion around the piers.

“The team will give its recommendations within a couple of weeks and based on which a proposal will be drawn up to renovate the bridge,” a Highways Department official told The Hindu . The structure as such was stable and safe, the officials affirmed.

Cauvery Bridge to undergo renovation

Quote:
The Cauvery Bridge is all set for yet another round of renovation in a month as a four-member team from Highways Research Station, Chennai analszed its condition on Thursday morning.

While minor cracks have been witnessed on two of its pillars, the bridge renovation will be carried out based on a report submitted by the team. State highways officials in Trichy said that work would start in a month.

Apart from analysing the quality of the retaining walls on either side of the bridge, the team also checked the stability of the walls and the pillars underneath.

"While the cracks have been there for several years, the expert team has been called for suggestions on carrying out the repair work," said a senior official from the highway department.

The bridge was strong enough to cater to the city for at least next two decades, said the official. The parapet walls will be replaced with new walls with gaps so that wind can pass through it.

"Earlier questions were raised on the stability of the retaining wall for having been raised with no proper foundation. After the wall developed cracks, the SH has now decided to replace it," he said.


The official said that the state highway department should consider the possibility of raising a new bridge replacing the existing one considering its age.

"This is the second renovation that the state highways department is going to carry out within a couple of years. While it reflects the poor condition of the bridge, a new bridge can be planned on the old British-era bridge along the existing bridge," he said.

Flyover mooted on at BHEL Ganesa Point Intersection

Accidents at Ganesa Point continue due to overspeeding

National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has received requests for construction of a flyover at Ganesa Point at the entry of the BHEL Township on the Tiruchi-Thanjavur National Highway.

The BHEL had been pursuing the proposal for years now with the NHAI to prevent accidents at the location where a large traffic island was constructed years ago, in fact, for the same purpose.

After a few accidents that took place during 2012 and 2013, the NHAI had put up warning boards on both sides of the Tiruchi-Thanjavur highway and reflectors on the railings of the traffic island as a preventive measure.

Officials said that though the shape of the traffic island was designed in conformity with the space for manoeuvre, accidents keep happening at periodic intervals due to overspeeding.

According to sources in BHEL, the loss of lives used to be high prior to construction of the traffic island.


Risky

Nevertheless, questions keep arising on the adequacy of space for natural vehicle paths and whether the traffic island causes a danger on the roadway.

The idea is to remove the traffic island for seamless connectivity between the township and industry once the flyover is in place, sources said.

The BHEL has also impressed upon the NHAI the imperative need for construction of a similar flyover at Training Centre Junction Point, where accident deaths happen at frequent intervals, it is learnt.


A senior official of National Highways Authority of India confirmed that they have received the request from the BHEL for the flyovers, but a proposal has not been drawn up yet.

NHAI push for underpass at kondayampettai

Image

Construction of an underpass along the Tiruchi-Chennai Bypass road at Kondayampettai here is set to become a reality soon with the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) engaged in preparing detailed estimates for the project.

The detailed estimates would be sent to NHAI for approval prior to commencement of the works. The underpass is expected to be constructed at a cost of nearly Rs. 20 crore. Soil tests would be carried out before embarking on the project, a senior NHAI official said. Seven minor bridges would also be built in four locations to ensure continuous service road on the bypass road.

The need for an underpass was felt in the wake of recurring accidents at the spot. Construction of underpass would reduce accidents to a large extent, said NHAI officials.

As a sequel to frequent accidents along the Chennai By Pass road, the Traffic Police had installed barricades on one of the carriageways leading towards Tiruchi as a temporary measure at Sanjeevi Nagar intersection blocking straight movement of vehicles.

The barricades were put up as a temporary measure several months ago with traffic police personnel deployed at the intersection in shifts to manage vehicular movements during day time and evenings. Vehicles coming from the Cauvery river bridge side towards Tiruchi are being diverted via the service road to reduce their speed and take the same carriageway upon nearing the intersection.

Barricades have been installed on the other carriageway in order to reduce the speed of vehicle headed towards Chennai. This has brought down accidents at Sanjeevi Nagar intersection.
