Ariyamangalam dump flares up, again

Image

Residents of Ambikapuram and surrounding areas in the city heaved a sigh of relief as officials of the Tiruchirapalli City Corporation managed to put out yet another fire at the civic body’s garbage dump at Ariyamangalam on Saturday.

The fire was noticed by the watch and ward staff at around 4 a.m. and on being alerted fire tenders from the Fire and Rescue Services and corporation water tankers were pressed into service to put out the fire.

The fire was confined to a small area on the southern side of the sprawling 43-acre garbage dump site and was brought under control after a three-hour operation, corporation officials said.

Officials said the corporation workers continued to work during the day on the site to ensure that the embers did not spread.

The incident brought to fore the long-pending demand of the local residents for shifting the garbage depot out of the residential locality. This is the second time that a fire has been reported at the site within a month and in July a fire was put out after a couple of days.

Every time a fire breaks out at the yard, a thick cloud of smoke envelops several colonies, disrupting life. Thousands of residents in colonies off the Ambikapuram Road situated close to the dump, including Jaganathapuram, Anna Nagar, Venkateswara Nagar, Nehruji Nagar, and Thideer Nagar, have been bearing the brunt.

At times of major fire, residents are even forced to move out of their houses temporarily. A series of fire during the summer in 2013 and 2014 triggered a public outcry in the locality.

The corporation had been planning to go in for bio-capping of the accumulated garbage but the proposal is yet to take off. According to sources, the proposal is still awaiting clearance from the government “We have long been demanding the shifting of the dump. But despite repeated assurance, action has not been taken. None of the promises given out in a peace committee meeting held in 2013 have been fulfilled. Apart from bio-capping, officials had then promised us that smaller garbage collection centres will be set up in each of the four zones and only bio-degradable waste would be brought to Ariyamangalam for making bio-compost. But action has not been taken in this direction,” said S.P. Saravanan, former councillor who threatened to launch an agitation again to force the civic body into action on the matter.

ROCK CITY’S BURNING PROBLEM

Image

Tiruchi’s Ariyamangalam garbage yard, which has turned out to be a nightmare for hundreds of residents of Ariyamangalam and Kattur areas, once again caught fire in the early hours on Saturday.

The fire reportedly broke out at a mound, where fresh garbage was dumped recently. Within no time, the fire spread to neighbouring mounds because of gusty winds. Flames leaped 10 feet quickly. It eventually sent out a dense cloud of smoke, making the life miserable for people living in several residential colonies in Ariyamangalam. The smoke also engulfed a section of the Thanjavur Highway. The cause of the fire was not known.

Besides local residents, road users including bus and lorry drivers found it difficult due to poor visibility. They had to use headlights during the day to get a clear view on the Tiruchi-Thanjavur Highway and streets. On information, seven fire tenders of Fire and Rescue Services from Tiruchi city, Srirangam, Navalpattu, Pullampadi, and Uppilliapuram rushed to the spot to douse the fire. Besides seven water tankers were pressed into service to assist the fire tenders.

Men and machines

Seventy five personnel were deployed in the operation. The task of extinguishing fire began around 2 a.m. and continued beyond evening. About 75 loads of water had been sprayed on the burning garbage dump. Although the personnel could contain the flame to a certain extent, there were still hot embers.

Lack of access to mounds of garbage is said be hindering the fire fighting operation as the fire tenders are unable to reach some spots. Strong wind is fanning the fire.

Fire and Rescue Service personnel said it would take at least three days to extinguish the fire completely.

The garbage dump, belonging to the Tiruchirapalli City Corporation, is spread over 47 acres. It has accumulated about 12 lakh to 14 lakh tonnes of garbage. About 500 tonnes of garbage collected from various parts of the city are dumped there daily.

Narrow national highway stretch turns into killer zone

The Thiruverumbur-Kattur locality near the government polytechnic college has turned into an accident spot, with three accidents reported in the span of just a week. Located along the Trichy-Thanjavur Road on National
Highway 67, the road becomes narrow towards this area, with vehicles unable to move easily towards the city. Residents associations for long have been demanding a service road along the spot, but the NH department is yet to take up the project.

The road radiates out at the Chennai Bypass Road from the golden quadrilateral that connects Kanyakumari to Kashmir.

The road widens only at the toll gate after Thuvakudi industrial estate and remains so till Thanjavur. According to the senior officials at the traffic investigative department, at least 64 accidents have been recorded last year and minor accidents are being constantly reported in the locality. Several policemen are deployed on a daily basis but accidents continue to happen due to the rash driving on the narrow road and heavy vehicles stopping at some points due to the industries.

Amman Nagar, Kattur, Asoor, SIT College and Thuvakudi are the worst accident spots. A bike accident on Wednesday night killed one person. The couple was driving near Amman Nagar when the bike skidded due to the congestion and crowd in the locality. A government bus recently toppled after hitting another bus, injuring 21 passengers.

The Palpannnai- Thuvakudi Service Road Retrieval Association member Vishwanthan S said, "The accidents are only rising as vehicles are increasing. It is the responsibility of the state and the central government to work jointly to widen the road and lay service roads on both the sides."

According to members of the association, National Highways department had ordered the retrieval of lands amounting to 35.31 acres for the construction of the service road on the Trichy- Thuvakudi Highway in 2012. A sum of Rs 84 crore was sanctioned by the state highways department. But after a reassessment in 2013, it was found that Rs 196 crore was necessary for land acquisition alone.

While the tug of war between the state and the Centre continue over the retrieval of land and the funds continue, the project has not witnessed any progress in years. Meanwhile, the location is turning into a death trap for vehicle users.

TIRUCHI’S CLAIMS OVERLOOKED

A few weeks ago some service organisations protested against the government’s apathy towards the development of Tiruchi. Ever since the Dravidian parties came to power, not a single factory has been set up in Tiruchi. The BHEL was established by the Congress government when Kamaraj was the Chief Minister in 1963. Tiruchi has lost out on many projects because of the indifferent attitude of successive governments. A Bench of the Madras High Court was to have been established in Tiruchi, but it went to Madurai.

Southern Air Command was proposed to be located in Tiruchi during the 1980s by expanding the airport. A second rail coach factory was to have been located in Tiruchi but it was set up at Kapurthala. Similar was the fate of military tank factory which was located in Medak. Many express trains which used to be started from Tiruchi have been extended to other stations. Long felt demands for direct express trains to Bengaluru, New Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad have not been fulfilled so far. The latest is the demand for setting up the AIIMS in Tiruchi. Unless concerted efforts are taken by all organisations interested in the development of Tiruchi, there will be no tangible improvement.
