The project is being implemented by the Tiruchi Corporation at a cost Rs. 63.70 crore

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has given permission to Tiruchi City Corporation (TCC) for laying pumping mains and distribution lines along the roads for the drinking water project to five added wards in Kattur and Tiruverumbur areas
.


The project is being implemented at a cost Rs. 63.70 crore. Of this, KFW, the German Bank will provide loan to the tune of Rs. 25.48 (40 % of the project cost). It will offer an equal sum as grant. The remaining Rs. 12.74 crore (20 %) will be met through the own resources of the TCC.

The project is aimed at increasing the supply of existing 40 litres to 135 litres of drinking water per day per head to the residents of Tiruverumbur and its adjoining areas as per the norms stipulated by the Central Public Health and Environmental Engineering Organisation.

For early completion of works, the project has been divided into three packages such as head works, construction of reservoirs (overhead tanks) and laying pumping mains and distribution lines. Of them, laying mains and distribution lines and construction of overhead tanks have gained momentum with the permission granted by a few agencies.

Corporation Commissioner N. Ravichandran told The Hindu that the pumping mains and distribution lines would have to pass through various roads from Kambarasampettai on Tiruchi-Karur road to Tiruverumbur on Tiruchi-Thanjavur road. The NHAI, the Public Works Department and the State Highways that owned and operate the roads have given permission for laying pipes.

As part of the project, he said pumping mains would be laid for 22 km. The total length of distribution lines would be 205 km. In addition to the existing overhead tanks at Tiruverumbur, Kalkandarkottai and Ellakudi, new overhead tanks would be constructed at eight places including Puzhal Nagar, Pari Nagar, Santhosh Nagar, Cauvery Nagar and Ganesh Nagar, Mr. Ravichandran said.

S. Amuthavalli, City Engineer (in-charge) said that the Corporation has been supplying 4.5 million litres a day (MLD) of water to the residents of 61,62,63,64 and 65 wards through the Tamil Nadu Water and Drainage Board (TWAD). It was expected that construction would be completed within December 2018. The Corporation would be in a position to distribute 12 MLD of water when the distribution of water commenced. The scheme was designed to cater to the drinking water needs of residents for the next 30 years. It would have the pumping capacity of 27 MLD

Two will come up at Mannarpuram and one near Sona-Meena Theatre

The City Police has made elaborate arrangements to regulate the festival traffic rush ahead of Deepavali.

Temporary bus stands would be established in the city ahead of the festival this year too with a view to easing congestion at the Central Bus Stand. Work on constructing shelters for the temporary bus stand has already commenced at Mannarpuram – a central location close to the Tiruchi-Madurai National Highway.

The temporary bus stands would come up at three spots – two at Mannarpuram and one near the Sona-Meena Theatre near the Central bus stand.

Buses bound for Madurai and Pudukottai and those coming to Tiruchi from these two places would terminate at Mannarpuram instead of going to the central bus stand. Buses bound for Thanjavur from Tiruchi would start from the temporary bus stand to come up near the Sona Meena theatre.

Shuttle services would be operated from Mannarpuram temporary bus stand to the Central Bus Stand, said police sources.

The idea is to ease congestion at the central bus stand from where State Transport Corporation and State Express Transport Corporation buses depart to various destinations within the State and to neighbouring States, said the sources.

The city police held meeting with the civic body and transport corporation officials for setting up the temporary bus stands. The law enforcers have requested the civic body to provide basic amenities at the temporary bus stands.

The Transport Corporation has been requested to operate buses from these spots, said the sources adding that public address system would also be provided to guide passengers alighting at the temporary bus stands.

200 special buses from Trichy to Chennai to cater to Diwali rush

Quote:
The Trichy division of Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation (TNSTC) has planned to operate as many as 200 special buses to Chennai to cater to the extra rush during Diwali festival. Similarly, three temporary bus terminals would be operated in the city to avoid congestion at the Central Bus Stand here.

Meanwhile, the association for omni bus operators in Tamil Nadu has said that operators were told not to hike ticket prices during Diwali. However, the transport department is responsible to check whether the bus operators are adhering to the norms and not collecting excess fares.

According to officials with TNSTC here, 200 special buses including ordinary, deluxe, and ultra-deluxe buses have been planned to be operated from October 15 to 20 from Trichy to Chennai. Similarly, about 100 special buses will be operated to Coimbatore, Madurai, and Tiruppur during the same period.

Since the 4.5 acre Central Bus Stand in heart of the city will be inadequate during the festive period to handle the soaring crowd, three temporary bus shelters respectively in Mannarpuram, Old Iluppur road and near Sona Mina Cinemas in Cantonment has been planned. "We have insisted the district administration to conduct a review meeting ahead of Diwali to ensure hassle free journey for the public travelling to their homes.

The transport department will be urged to check overpricing of omni bus tickets," said M Sekaran, member, District Road Safety Council.

The council has also reiterated TNSTC to permit buses into Central bus stand only 30 minutes prior to departure to prevent bottlenecks.

In order to prevent the public from being fleeced, proper mechanism and helpline is yet to be launched by the district administration. However, sources said that a district level review meeting to regulate the traffic during Deepavali festival would be held in a day or two.

Mohammed Afzal, President of Tamil Nadu Omni Bus Owners Association, said that bus operators were instructed not to increase the fare, but the efficacy of such instructions is doubtful unless the district administration and regional transport department pitches in with proper mechanism to prevent overpricing of bus tickets, particularly to Chennai.

Rs 45 lakh additional multi-level parking lot eases Central bus stand woes



Quote:
After a long hiatus, the much-awaited new facility for two-wheeler parking in the ever-crowded Trichy central bus stand has become functional. As the existing multilevel parking lot of Trichy Corporation in the bus stand was frequently running out of space to serve commuters during peak hours, the new facility has been auguring well for the commuters.

Catering to the transit need of around 9 lakh people besides the floating population, the central bus stand's two-wheeler parking lot had always been in dire need of expansion.

Even as the corporation took up the extension works of existing multilevel parking space to bring up additional facility to meet the demands after much delay, the extended multi-level two-wheeler parking was commissioned recently. Earlier in 2015, the corporation had launched a project to extend the parking space in the central bus stand parking lot by constructing two floors of parking space at an estimated cost of Rs 45 lakhs.

As the 4.5 acre bus stand with as many as six platforms and about six dozen bays to reach any part of the state has been accessed by at least 1 lakh travellers a day, the delay in commissioning the extended two-wheeler parking lot had attracted criticism.

"Ground floor and first floor of the two-floor parking lot were handed over to the contractor who has leased the facility. The handed-over portion of the facility would altogether accommodate at least 800 vehicles at a time. The construction was earlier delayed due to the shortage in funding," an official source in city corporation said.

Ever since the extended two-wheeler parking lot was commissioned a few weeks ago, more two-wheelers were being accommodated. However, the second floor of the new parking lot is yet to be handed over to the contractor and public has sought the same to be handed over at the earliest foreseeing the Deepavali rush. Corporation sources said that the work on the second floor of the new facility was almost complete, and could be handed over in a week.

Though the corporation-run two-wheeler parking lot is cheaper than similar facilities in railway stations, users alleged that Rs 10 was being charged against the prescribed fee of Rs 5 per vehicle per day. However, corporation officials claimed that the operators were adhering to norms and were strictly being advised to stick to Rs 5 only.

SIDCO okays site for Trichy trade & convention centre

The proposal to establish a trade and convention centre in Trichy has got a shot in the arm with top officials of Tamil Nadu Small Industries Development Corporation (SIDCO) expressing their satisfaction over a site proposed for the project. With this, the much awaited centre which intends to serve as a catalyst for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSME) has crossed a key hurdle in becoming a reality.

The site identified by Trichy District Tiny and Small Scale Industries Association (TIDITSSIA) in coordination with the district administration at Panjappur village near the city was inspected by top SIDCO officials recently. Earlier, in the budget speech of 2017-18, the state government had put forward the plan to set up trade facilitation centres in Madurai, Salem and Trichy. Subsequently, TIDITSSIA which promotes small scale industries in the district, suggested that the district administration sanction government poromboke land up to 9.42 acres situated in Panjappur village close to the Trichy-Madurai highway.

On par with the standards of CODDISIA (The Coimbatore District Small Industries Association) trade fair complex, TIDITSSIA said that the proposed site would be adequate enough to construct such a trade and convention centre. "The site proposed by TIDITSSIA in Panjappur was visited by the senior officials from SIDCO, Chennai about a couple of days ago. The team was content with the parameters of the available site including the proximity to the city," a senior official with SIDCO said.

The land cost of the 9.42 acres was estimated at Rs 1.63 crores while the building cost was put at Rs 4.06 crores. SIDCO would facilitate the project implementation on Public-Private Partnership (PPP) mode through a single window committee. Official sources said that the ceiling of government grant for establishing the trade centre in Trichy was fixed at Rs 5 crore while the remaining sum would be contributed by the associations of small scale industries in the district.

The total project cost of the convention centre in Trichy has been estimated at Rs 11 crores. "We are willing to support the project as the presence of a trade centre can be used as a platform to market various products by conducting trade fairs. Such project would also diversify the small scale industries here. Textile and other small scale industries would also get a chance to flourish in central districts," N Kanagasabapathy, president, TIDITSSIA, told TOI. With SIDCO showing green signal for the proposed site in Panjappur, the district administration is expected to make arrangements to conclude official works such as consent of locals before handing over the 9.42 acres of government land to SIDCO, the nodal agency for the project.

Agency to prepare DPR on phase III of UGD project

The Tiruchi City Corporation has proposed to implement a comprehensive scheme to expand the underground drainage (UGD) in order to extend the sewer lines to uncovered areas at an estimate of Rs. 450 crore.

The project will be implemented by tapping financial resources from the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs of the Central government under the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT). The scheme will cover as many as 15 wards in the city.

It will be the third phase of UGD project. The Corporation has already brought about 30% of households in the city under the first phase of UGD project.

The second phase of the project, which is to be implemented at a cost of Rs. 350 crore, is awaiting administrative sanction from the government. It will cover about 25 % of households.

N. Ravichandran, Special Officer- cum-Commissioner, Tiruchi Corporation, toldThe Hinduthat an agency had been appointed for preparing a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the third phase of the UGD project.

It would have elaborate information on areas to be covered, length of UGD line, pumping stations, distribution line and mains, sewage treatment plants and others. The preparation of DPR had already reached an advanced level. The private agency was likely to submit the report to the Corporation within a week.

He added that the proposal had already been discussed at various levels with the State and Central governments. The Corporation had received positive response for including the proposal under the AMRUT scheme.

Mr. Ravichandran said the Corporation would review the proposal once it received the DPR. It would make changes if needed. The DPR would then be submitted to the Commissionerate of Municipal Administration of the State government and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs for approval.

He said if the third phase was approved it would be a big boost to the Corporation in improving the basic infrastructure of the city.

It had been proposed to fully cover wards such as 31,36, 37,38,39, 40, 64 and 65. Wards such as 35,41,42,45, 53, 60 and 63 would be partially covered. Edamalaipattipudur, K.K. Nagar, Airport, LIC Colony, Sunder Nagar, Karumandapam, Dheeran Nagar, Dindigul road, Golden Rock and their adjoining residential colonies would be included in the third phase.
