Phase-3 of UGD to become a reality in 26 wards by 2019

Quote:
The much-awaited project to streamline the flow of sewage water in the city will soon become a reality with the civic body ready to implement the underground drainage (UGD) system in 26 wards.

Ward numbers 8, 9, 12 in Srirangam zone; 7, 14, 15, 21, 27, 28 and 29 in Ariyamangalam zone; 30, 31, 46, 61, 62, 63,64 and 65 in Golden Rock zone and 52, 53, 54, 57, 58, 59 and 60 in Ko Abhishekapuram zone will be equipped with UGD under the second phase of the project, said special officer and corporation commissioner N Ravichandran on Tuesday.

He said that the civic body has received approval from the state government to implement the project at a cost of Rs 344 crore under AMRUT scheme. A private concern Voyants Private Limited has been awarded the contract for laying the UGD in the areas.

"In order to improve the sanitation in the city and maintain cleanliness, the government has given approval for the project. The wards covered in the project will have the full benefits of UGD," said Ravichandran.

Under the project, sewage water pipelines for 318 km, main sewage pumping pipelines for 22km and four pumping stations will be laid, besides providing UGD connections to 39,849 residences in the 26 wards.

The 65 wards of the corporation spread across 167.23 square kilometers have a total population of 9,16,857. The civic body had provided UGD connections to 42,851 households under the various schemes of state and central governments many years ago. The rest of the areas remained without UGD, forcing the people to release the sewage water into normal sewage canal which is linked to water canals like Uyyakondan river. In most of the areas, the sewage water was let into vacant plots or it stagnated near the house and resulted in breeding of mosquitoes.

The corporation also said that the work to lay UGD in the left out areas of Srirangam zone was on the verge of completion. The government had allotted Rs 24 crore under the first phase.

Centre Sanctions Rs 347 Crores for extension of UGD Project for Tiruchi city

Quote:
To contribute 50% of the total allocation of ₹347 crore

The Union Ministry of Urban Development has sanctioned the much-awaited Underground Drainage Sewerage scheme (phase-II) for Tiruchi city.

A sum to the tune of ₹347 crore has been sanctioned for the scheme, which will be implemented under the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUIT) programme.


Out of ₹347 crore, the Central government will contribute 50%. The contribution of the State government will be 20% and the remaining 30% will be borne by Tiruchi Corporation.

Commissioner-cum-Special Officer, Tiruchi Corporation, N. Ravichandran told The Hindu that the project was a long-pending demand of the residents. The infrastructure of the city would get a major boost with the phase-II UGD scheme. It would increase the UGD coverage in the city to a great extent, he said.

Sources added that the phase-II UGD scheme would be divided into small packages for easy and quick completion of the scheme.

There would be a separate treatment plant for the phase-II scheme. It would be constructed at Keela Kalkandarkottai and a site had been identified for the purpose.

Documentation work for floating tenders had started. Separate tenders would be called for each package.

The scheme would mainly cover the areas that were uncovered in the existing UGD system.

Several new areas and those in wards 55, 7,8,9,12,14, 15, 21, 27, 31, 46, 52,57,54,53,58, 59, 60,63,64 and 65 would be covered under the scheme.

Need for service lane from EB Road to Bypass

Image

Quote:
The winding route starting on East Boulevard Road and ending at the intersection point between Palpannai and the left diversion to Oyamari Road along the Chennai Bypass Road is now a busy stretch.

And this has spawned a demand among road users for strengthening of the link, especially at the rather narrow level-crossing close to the Town Station
.

While the service lane from Palpannai and the diversion to Oyamari road serves the purpose of swift connectivity for people residing along Thanjavur Road to the business nerve centre of the city, the return in the opposite direction had been rendered impossible as the main carriageway was constructed without provision for a subway at the Oyamari turning.

Motorists are required to take a left turn and move on for quite a few km to take a ‘U’ turn. On the other hand, those taking the course of the underdeveloped link from EB Road to Chennai Bypass Road are able to save substantial fuel and time.

According to call taxi drivers, there was another option that could be explored. The fuller utility of the Oyamari Road could be derived if the discontinuity in the service lane link along the Chennai Bypass Road was rectified, such that a passage was provided on to the lane by widening it further for two-way movement of vehicles.

Since the first choice of motorists was to avoid getting into the congested Gandhi Market area, initiatives need to be taken for strengthening the connectivity between rapidly urbanising Ariyamangalam-Tiruverumbur stretch and the Chathiram Bus Stand, the shopping nerve-centre, they emphasised.

1) Road Stretch from TV Koil to Kollidam Bridge to be made 4-laned with Center Median

Quote:
This road is an important State Highways maintained by Trichy (H) Sub
Division under the control of Trichy (H) C&M Division. This road branches at Km
311/4 NH 45 and ends at Km 333/0 of NH 45.

This is an important road leads to Chathiram Bus stand. More over the
frequent movement of the buses at this stretches create heavy traffic intensity on the road surface as it is very near to Chathiram Bus stand. To traffic conjuctions in this city limits, the stretch in Km 318/6-319/6 is proposed for widening from double to four lane with centre median for free flow of traffic.

^^^^
Center Median Lightings will be made by TCC as the road is being widened from 2-lane to 4-lane---Separate tenders will be called by TCC as they did for that Dindigul Road stretch :nuts:

With this, the entire stretch from Chatram Bus Stand(Mayas Hotel Point) No.1 Tolgate will be 4-laned with Center Median Lightings :)




2) Collector office Road from Vestry School Rountana to Ponnagar Intersection to be widened soon

An electoral promise that lies forgotten

Image

A new bus stand at Srirangam was a promise made by late Chief Minister Jayalalithaa

A new bus stand in Srirangam was among the slew of important projects mooted when former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa represented Srirangam constituency in the Assembly between 2011 and 2014. In order to fulfil her electoral promise, the Tiruchi City Corporation had announced the plan to set up new bus stand at Srirangam in 2012. Consequent to this, the Corporation, after getting mandatory approval of the Corporation council, came up with details on setting up of the new bus stand at Panchakarai, adjacent to the Yatri Nivas.

But, the proposal is yet to see a light.

As per the plan, it was decided to construct the bus terminal on 6.6 acres of land on Konakarai at a cost of Rs. 20 crore. Since the proposed site was a low lying area, the Corporation increased the project cost by Rs. 5 crore mainly to increase the ground level.

The civic body then took up the feasibility study and arranged a private agency for drawing up the Detailed Project Report to seek financial support of the State government to implement the project. But, the project has been put on cold storage since then.

Though the exact reasons were not known, it is believed that the civic body had slowed down its efforts in the aftermath of disproportionate asset case verdict against Jayalalithaa in 2014 by a trial court in Bengaluru.

“It is hard to believe that Srirangam, a well known heritage and pilgrimage town, does not have a proper bus stand. The town is extremely busy with the arrival of tourists and pilgrims from different parts of the country. The bus stand project can no longer be kept in cold storage for long,” says S. Viswanathan, vice president, “Thanneer” organisation and a resident of Srirangam.

He said that Yatri Nivas constructed at the behest of Jayalalithaa had become a hit.

However, there was no bus connectivity between Yatri Nivas and Sri Ranganathaswamy temple, forcing the pilgrims to shell out Rs. 50 towards auto rickshaw charges for covering a distance of just 1.5 km. If the bus stand was set up at the Konakarai site, it would not only benefit pilgrims but also bring down the traffic snarls near the Rajagopuram on Amma Mandapam road, which was used as bus terminal.

N. Ravichandran, Special Officer cum Corporation Commissioner, told The Hindu that efforts would be renewed to build the new bus stand at Srirangam.

Limited use subway to come up at Melapudur

Quote:
The project has been taken up primarily to ensure safety of school children

In an attempt to prevent trespassing on rail tracks, a limited use subway is to come up at Melapudur area here. The Tiruchi City Corporation and the Southern Railway are jointly involved in this project with preliminary works having commenced. The subway project is fully funded by the Tiruchi Corporation.

The subway is coming up on the Tiruchi – Karur broad gauge section between Tiruchi Railway Junction and Tiruchi Fort railway station.

As part of the project, Reinforced Cement Concrete boxes have been brought to the project site to be placed below the railway track to enable movement of pedestrians, two-wheelers and smaller vehicles. The upcoming subway would connect Melapudur with the Old Goods Shed Road and Khajapettai.

The Railways would execute the work on its portion, while the Corporation would build the side walls and access roads on either side.

The project has been taken up primarily to ensure safety of school children many of whom proceed towards Melapudur from the Old Goods Shed and Khajapettai areas, said a civic body official.

In the absence of a subway, public and students cross the railway track so as to reach their destination quickly which poses a hazard.

Numerous residential localities are situated adjoining the railway track especially between Melapudur and Tiruchi Fort railway station thus witnessing frequent trespass. The subway project is being implemented to prevent trespass and to check incidents of being run over by trains, said a railway official.

Railway sources said a total number of 14 reinforced concrete boxes would be placed below the track to a length of 21 metres.

The civic body has already paid ₹50 lakh to the Railways to execute the work in its portion.

The Corporation would provide access roads on either side besides carrying out other works like preventing water stagnation on the subway during rainy season.

The civic body would spend a little over ₹1 crore to complete its work, said an official adding that the subway was expected to be ready by the year-end. The Railways is expected to complete its portion by the end of July, a senior Railway official said.
