New ROB fails to stop traffic woes

The completion of construction work of the new road overbridge, as part of the four-laning of Tiruchi–Thanjavur national highway at Ariyamangalam in the city, brought much cheer to vehicle users.

Their joy, however, turned out to be short lived, as traffic snarls are frequently witnessed on the new ROB too, thanks to the indifferent attitude of drivers and two-wheeler riders. The traffic congestion on the new bridge is ubiquitous despite the presence of police personnel on both ends of the bridge to regulate traffic.

Due to the construction of the new ROB, traffic was allowed to move via the adjacent old bridge, running parallel to the new bridge. Traffic congestion became the order of the day on the Palpannai-Ariyamangalam section of the NH, as the old bridge could not hold the heavy flow of traffic.

The new bridge was thrown open for traffic last week and it raised lot of expectations among vehicle users, who felt that it would reduce traffic congestion on the section. Contrary to expectations, traffic holds up are witnessed on the new ROB every now and then, causing much hardship to all sections of society.

Though the police regularise movement of vehicles and allow them to move on a single line at the mouth of the bridge on both directions, the indifferent attitude of cars and the two-wheeler riders in jumping the queue on the overbridge has proved to be the main cause for traffic congestion.

The two-wheeler riders in particular use every inch of space available on the bridge to overtake the other vehicles, which only lead to traffic snarls.

The NHAI has already commenced the work on strengthening and renovating the existing ROB to accommodate traffic on opposite direction. All sections of society have pleaded for speeding up the ongoing works and complete the same at the earliest.


i don't wheather this news editor is idiot or stupid, now only one bridge was thrown open for traffic, on the other side the construction of the bridge is still going on. hence normally there will be traffic, this will happen everywhere in the world. without knowing this simple concept, how he wrote this article & got approval from his boss, wondering jai ho hindu newspaper....

Farmers seek expeditious decision on bypass road

Amidst continuing stalemate over identifying an alternative alignment for the new bypass road that is to link Tiruchi-Madurai, Tiruchi-Dindigul and Tiruchi-Karur national highways on the outskirts, farmer representatives from the region have demanded that a decision on the issue be taken expeditiously to pave the way for laying the road at the earliest.

The bypass road was sanctioned as part of the widening of the NH 67 being executed on a Build Operate and Transfer (BOT) basis. While widening of the Karur highway is nearing completion, the fate of the bypass road hangs in balance.

The project was brought to halt after Madurai Bench of Madras High Court struck down the plan to lay the road across three irrigation tanks based on a petition filed by local farmers opposed to laying the road across the Kothamangalam, Kallikudi and Punganur tanks.

The farmers alleged that laying the road across the tanks would affect irrigation and their livelihood.

A public hearing was held in December 2011 to elicit the views of locals on the possible alternative alignments for the road, but the National Highways Authority of India is yet to arrive at a decision. Farmers who took the matter to the court have demanded that a decision be taken expeditiously.

In a memorandum submitted to the Collector recently, representatives of various farmers organisations suggested that the road be laid along the western banks of the three tanks as an elevated structure without affecting the water sources.

Before that all encroachments on the tanks should be removed, they demanded.

M.P.Chinnadurai, district president, Tamizhaga Vivasayigal Sangam, who has been spearheading the farmers’ agitation on the issue and one of the signatories to the memorandum, said their primary concern was to protect the water sources and it was not their intention to stall the project.

“The previous alignment ran across the middle of the tanks, which is why we objected to it. The road can be built as an elevated structure along the banks of the tank on the western side without affecting the irrigation sources,” Mr.Chinnadurai said.

The memorandum was signed by representatives from C.Masilamani, district secretary of CPI (M) affiliated Tamil Nadu Vivasayigal Sangam, G.K.Murali from the Congress, P.Ayyakannu from Bharathiya Kisan Sangam, K.S.Ondimuthu from BJP Farmers Wing, and representatives from Punganur Eri Pasana Ayakattudarar Sangam and Unorganised Sector Workers Movement.

When contacted, NHAI sources conceded that no decision has been taken yet on the alternative alignment. Whatever alignment was chosen the NHAI would have to obtain environment clearance from the Centre.

Before that the NHAI headquarters has to approve the revised alignment

Given the procedures involved, indications are that it could take more than six months to finalise the alternative alignment for the road.

புங்கனூர், கள்ளிக்குடி ஏரிகள் வழியாக சுற்றுச்சாலை அமைக்கும் விவகாரம்: விவசாயிகள்&நெடுஞ்சாலைத்துறை அதிகாரிகளுடன் ஆலோசனை நடத்த முடிவு குறைதீர்க்கும் நாள் கூட்டத்தில் கலெக்டர் பேச்சு

புங்கனூர், கள்ளிக்குடி, கொத்தமங்கலம் ஏரிகள் வழியாக தேசிய சுற்றுச்சாலை அமைக்கும் விவகாரம் தொடர்பாக அனைத்து விவசாயிகள், அதிகாரிகளுடன் ஆலோசனை நடத்தப்படும் என்று கலெக்டர் ஜெயஸ்ரீ முரளிதரன் கூறினார்.

குறைதீர்க்கும் நாள் கூட்டம்
திருச்சி மாவட்ட கலெக்டர் அலுவலகத்தில் விவசாயிகள் குறைதீர்க்கும் நாள் கூட்டம் நடைபெற்றது. கூட்டத்தில் கலெக்டர் ஜெயஸ்ரீ முரளிதரன் தலைமை தாங்கினார். மாவட்ட வருவாய் அதிகாரி தியாகராஜன், வேளாண் துறை இணை இயக்குனர் சேகர், கலெக்டரின் நேர்முக உதவியாளர் பாண்டியராஜன், தோட்டக்கலை துணை இயக்குனர் லட்சுமணன் மற்றும் பலர் கலந்து கொண்டனர்.

கூட்டத்தில் தமிழ்நாடு விவசாயிகள் சங்க மாவட்ட தலைவர் மாசிலாமணி பேசுகையில், “புங்கனூர், கள்ளிக்குடி, கொத்தமங்கல் ஏரிகள் வழியாக என்.எச்.-67 தேசிய சுற்றுச்சாலை (ரிங் ரோடு) அமைக்கும் பணி காலதாமதப்படுவதால் விவசாயிகள் பாதிப்பு அடைந்துள்ளனர். தேசிய சுற்றுச்சாலை திட்ட பணிகளுக்காக மத்திய-மாநில அரசுகளால் கையகப்படுத்தப்படும் விவசாய நிலங்களுக்கு சந்தை விலையை காட்டிலும் 10 மடங்கு கூடுதல் விலை கொடுத்து விவசாய குடும்பங்களில் வாழ்வாதாரத்தை காப்பாற்ற வேண்டும்“ என்றார்.

ஒளிவுமறைவு இல்லை
கலெக்டர் ஜெயஸ்ரீ முரளிதரன் பதிலளித்து பேசியதாவது:-

என்.எச்.67 தேசிய சுற்றுச்சாலை அமைக்கும் பணியில் விவசாயிகளுக்கு பாதிப்பு ஏற்படாத வகையில் பணிகளை மேற்கொள்ள தேசிய நெடுஞ்சாலைத்துறைக்கு ஏற்கனவே மாவட்ட நிர்வாகம் சார்பில் கடிதம் அனுப்பப்பட்டுள்ளது. இந்த விவகாரத்தில் மாவட்ட நிர்வாகம் விவசாயிகள் நலன்களுக்காக பல்வேறு நடவடிக்கைகளை எடுத்து வருகிறது. இதுவரை எந்த அளவு நிலங்களை கையகப்படுத்த வேண்டும் என்பது உள்ளிட்ட எந்த விபரங்களையும் தேசிய நெடுஞ்சாலைத்துறை
மாவட்ட நிர்வாகத்துக்கு தெரிவிக்கவில்லை.

தேசிய சுற்றுச்சாலையை மாற்று வழியில் தொடங்க வேண்டாம் என்றும், முதன் முதலில் திட்டமிடப்பட்ட வழியிலேயே பணிகளை தொடங்கும்படி தேசிய நெடுஞ்சாலைத்துறைக்கு தெரிவித்து இருக்கிறோம். தேசிய சுற்றுச்சாலை பணிகள் தாமதப்படுவதற்கு மாவட்ட நிர்வாகம் காரணம் அல்ல. மேலும், இது தொடர்பாக அனைத்து விவசாயிகள், நெடுஞ்சாலைத்துறை அதிகாரிகள், வருவாயத்துறை அதிகாரிகள் ஆகியோருடன் ஆலோசனை கூட்டம் நடத்தப்படும்.
இவ்வாறு அவர் பேசினார்.

Alternative alignment for bypass road still elusive

Uncertainty looms over the new bypass road that is to connect the Tiruchi-Madurai, Tiruchi-Dindigul and Tiruchi-Karur national highways on the outskirts of the city as no decision has been arrived yet on identifying an alternative alignment since the High Court struck down the plan to lay the road across irrigation tanks.

Work on the bypass road was halted after the Madurai Bench of Madras High Court based on petition filed by local farmers, struck down National Highways Authority of India’s plan to lay the road across Kothamangalam, Kallikudi, and Punganur tanks in 2010. The farmers alleged that laying the road across the tanks would affect irrigation and their livelihood.

The road was to run from Panchapur on the NH 45 via Thayanur to Jeeyapuram on NH 67. The project was taken up as part of widening of the NH 67 being executed on a Build Operate and Transfer (BOT) basis.

Widening of the Karur highway is nearing completion even as the fate of the bypass road hangs in balance. The court in a subsequent order had also ordered the NHAI to remove the sand dumped on Kothamangalam and Punganur tanks for laying the road. The process started recently and is still underway.

Although a public hearing was held in December 2011 to elicit views of locals on the possible alternative alignments for the road, no headway has since been made in finalising the revised alignment. While four possible alternative alignments were discussed, a new alignment that suggested that the road pass through the south side of Aruvankudi tank starting from Panchapur and culminating at Kaliyankadu was strongly opposed by local farmers as it involved acquiring about 43 hectares of agricultural lands.

With the NHAI yet to arrive at a decision on the revised alignment, farmers, who originally took the matter to the court, have demanded that a decision be made expeditiously.

“We are not against laying the bypass road. We want the water bodies to be protected and all encroachments removed. At the same time, we want the authorities to arrive at a decision early and finalise an alternative alignment at the earliest,” said M.P.Chinnadurai, district president, Tamizhaga Vivasayigal Sangam. Resolutions pressing this demand were adopted at a recent meeting of farmers representatives of all parties from the locality, Mr.Chinnadurai said.

However, enquiries with the district administration revealed that the NHAI was yet to convey a firm decision on which alternative alignment they are opting for. “They are yet to submit the land plan schedule for whatever alignment they choose,” a senior district official told The Hindu .

Nevertheless, reliable sources indicated that the NHAI had a few months ago informed the district administration that they would be willing to go by the second of the four alternative alignments, by building an elevated highway despite the higher cost involved. But this alignment too involved laying the road across tanks, which the court had strongly advised against, the sources said.

The district administration, the sources said, had subsequently suggested that the NHAI as well go by the original alignment conceived in 2006-07 as part of the detailed project report of the NHAI. Farmers had then alleged that this alignment was shifted under pressure from local politicians and it was this alignment that was successfully challenged by them in the court.

Sources in the NHAI said that they had asked for a report from the project consultant on what best could be done now. A decision is expected to be taken after receiving the report by mid-December. But given the long history of political lobbying involved right from the beginning of the project, it remains to be seen whether the authorities would be able to arrive at a decision any time soon.

Halt in Tiruchi-Karaikudi NH project irks BHEL ancillaries

Image

The State government’s order to National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) for stoppage of work on the widening of Tiruchi-Karaikudi section of National Highway 210, a major infrastructure project of the Central government, has irked BHEL’s ancillaries.

The project involving construction a 26-km semi-ring bypass road linking Tiruchi-Thanjavur Highway with Tiruchi-Pudukottai Highway at Mathur and with Tiruchi-Madurai Highway at Panjapur was much anticipated by BHEL’s ancillaries at Mathur and other industrial estates in Pudukottai district.

The bypass road under construction to a length of 26 km from Asoor along Tiruchi-Thanjavur Highway to Panjapur on the Tiruchi-Madurai Highway via Mathur on the Tiruchi-Pudukottai Highway in a semi-ring formation offers promise for quick and hassle-free transportation of materials between the ancillaries and BHEL; and the industries will be spared of the trouble of moving their materials through a circumlocutory route of which the heavily congested Palpannai-Thuvakkudi stretch is a segment.

The 110-km project involving acquisition of 421 hectares will provide the desired physical connectivity between BHEL’s Tiruchi unit and the newly started one at Tirumayam, where trial production is in progress.

The work on the Rs.374 crore project had to be stopped due to opposition from local farmers over damage caused to water sources, according to the State government. The State government’s decision was reportedly conveyed to the NHAI through the Water Resources Organisation of the Public Works Department. The project executed by Transstroy Ltd OJSC Consortium, an Indo-Russian venture under build, operate, transfer (annuity) scheme entails construction of bypass roads at Keeranur, Pudukottai, Tirumayam and Karaiikudi. The TANSTIA (Tamil Nadu Small and Tiny Industries’ Association) will represent to the State government calling for lifting its restriction on the project, its vice president Rajappa Rajkumar told The Hindu .

The distance for movement of materials can be further reduced if the work on relaying of the four-lane road from Gundur to the Navalpattu IT Park in police colony is expedited. Industries have already represented to the BHEL for widening the road from police colony to Nehru Nagar, Mr. Rajappa Rajkumar said.

NHAI may move court on highway

CHENNAI: Perturbed over what it terms as AIADMK government's 'confrontational' attitude towards high-cost infrastructure works in the state, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is likely to opt for legal action to clear hurdles in the Rs 374 crore Trichy-Karaikudi national highway project. The move, they hope, will help resumption of work for the project, which is vital for Union finance minister P Chidambaram's home constituency, Sivaganga. "The NHAI cannot opt for an alternative alignment at this stage, when the project is almost 60% complete," sources said.

A crucial project for south Tamil Nadu, the 108-km national highway will help strengthen the existing two-lane national highway connecting the three regions of Trichy, Pudukottai and Sivaganga. There are at least 14 water bodies that fall along the alignment where new bypasses pass through Trichy, Keeranur, Tirumaiyam, Pudukottai and Karaikudi. The bypasses, NHAI officials say, have been finalised taking into consideration the existing habitations and congestion along the route. "Indeed, it is perplexing as to why the state PWD, which granted no objection certificate for cutting through the water bodies in December last, withdrew it," a senior NHAI official told TOI.

PWD minister K V Ramalingam said the no objection certificate was withdrawn following protests by the local farmers. "In a similar case, a recent high court order did not want a water body to be disturbed by NHAI for a project and suggested an alternative route," he said. Only recently, the PWD and NHAI authorities had conducted a joint inspection and finalised the culverts and bridges for the Trichy-Karaikudi national highway.

In its order last year, the PWD Trichy region allowed NHAI to cut through water bodies and in January, Pudukottai PWD officials granted permission for construction of bridges across Kolathur tank, Gundur and Vellaru rivers. The state government has now withdrawn the no-objection certificate for the Trichy-Karaikudi national highway when it was actively considering the NHAI's application for sanction for the highway to cut through four water bodies in Sivaganga district.

The NHAI has cleared all the bottlenecks, including legal disputes over land acquisition, last year. The Madurai bench of the Madras high court cleared the contentious alignment after obtaining an opinion from water resources experts of Anna University.

Additional highway patrols to be deployed in Tiruchi, Pudukottai

Additional highway patrol vehicles will soon be deployed to cover certain stretches along the national and state highways falling within the limits of Tiruchi and Pudukottai districts.

New multi-utility vehicles meant for highway patrolling have already been dispatched. While five vehicles have been provided for Tiruchi rural police, two have been earmarked for Pudukottai. The additional vehicles would be equipped with necessary paraphernalia for effective supervision and control of traffic offenders, and to rescue victims from accident spots within the ‘golden hour’.

For Tiruchi rural police, the addition of five vehicles would take the number of highway patrol units to 11.

Of the six patrol units currently in operation, four of them cover certain stretches along the Tiruchi-Chennai, Tiruchi-Dindigul, Tiruchi-Madurai, and Tiruchi-Karur national highways, while two units are deployed along state highways.

Over 225 km of national highways and more than 200 kilometres of state highways fall within the limits of Tiruchi rural police.

Tiruchi rural police authorities had forwarded a proposal last year seeking sanction of additional patrol units and specifying manpower requirement and equipment including video cameras in an effort to curtail accident rate, have effective supervision and control over traffic offenders, and rescue victims of accidents.

Now that additional patrol vehicles have been given to us, the exercise of reworking the stretches along the highways was currently underway, says a senior police officer of Tiruchi Rural.

The lengthy stretches covered by some highway patrol units would be split into two sectors and the idea is to deploy the new vehicle in the divided portion. Among the five new vehicles, three would be deployed on the national highways and two on the state highways, the officer added.

As for Pudukottai, the three highway patrol units functioning at present are deployed along the Tirumayam-Gandarvakottai, Mathur-Pudukottai, and Pudukottai- Aranthangi stretches. The additional vehicles are proposed to be deployed at Viralamalai to cover the 21 km-stretch along the Tiruchi-Madurai NH falling under Pudukottai district and the 42-km East Coast Road stretch from Kattumavadi to Arasangarai, say police sources. According to statistics, 34 fatalities were reported on national highways in Tiruchi and Pudukottai districts in October alone, while 14 fatalities were recorded on state highways in the two districts.
