திருச்சியில் போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடியை தவிர்க்க வெல்லம், வெங்காய மண்டிகள் அறிவிக்கப்பட்ட இடத்திற்கு மாற்றம் செய்யப்படுமா?

திருச்சி நகரில் போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடிக்கு காரணமாக திகழும் வெல்லம் மற்றும் வெங்காய மண்டிகளை அறிவிக்கப்பட்ட இடத்திற்கு மாற்றம் செய்ய வேண்டும் என பொதுமக்கள் கோரிக்கை வைத்து உள்ளனர்.

போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடி
திருச்சி நகரில் போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடி நாளுக்கு நாள் அதிகரித்துக்கொண்டே செல்கிறது. பெருகி வரும் வாகனங்கள், ஒருங்கிணைந்த பஸ் நிலையம் அமைக்கப்படாதது போன்றவையும், அனைத்து வாகனங்களும் திருச்சி நகருக்குள் எப்போதும் வந்து செல்வதாலும் திருச்சி நகரில் அடிக்கடி போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடி ஏற்பட்டு வருகிறது.

வெல்லம்-வெங்காய மண்டி
போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடி பிரச்சினையை தீர்ப்பதற்கு வசதியாக திருச்சி நகரின் மையப்பகுதியான காந்தி மார்க்கெட் அருகில் அமைந்து உள்ள வெல்ல மண்டியையும், வெங்காய மண்டியையும் வேறு இடத்திற்கு மாற்றம் செய்வது என முடிவு செய்யப்பட்டது. திருச்சியில் உள்ள வெல்ல மண்டியில் இருந்துதான் தமிழகத்தின் பல மாவட்டங்களுக்கும், வெளி மாநிலங்களுக்கும் வெல்லம் அனுப்பப்பட்டு வருகிறது. இதற்காக லாரிகள் பகல், இரவு என பாராது 24 மணி நேரமும் வெல்லத்தை ஏற்றி செல்வதற்காக இந்த பகுதிக்கு வந்த வண்ணம் உள்ளன.

இதன் அருகிலேயே சப்-ஜெயில் ரோடு என அழைக்கப்படும் பகுதியில் வெங்காய மண்டி அமைந்து உள்ளது. வெளியூர்களில் இருந்து வரும் வெங்காயத்தை சாலைகளில் கொட்டி ஏலம் விடுவது, அவற்றை மூட்டை கட்டி லாரிகளில் ஏற்றுவது என எல்லாமே இந்த சாலையில் தான் நடக்கிறது. பல ஆண்டு காலம் போக்குவரத்தே நடைபெறாமல் இருந்த இந்த சாலையை, திருச்சி மாநகர போலீஸ் கமிஷனராக கருணாசாகர் பணியாற்றியபோது மீட்டு பொதுமக்களின் பயன்பாட்டுக்கு கொண்டு வந்தார். தற்போது இந்த சாலையின் வழியாக டவுன் பஸ்கள் செல்கின்றன. வெங்காயம் ஏற்ற வரும் லாரிகள், வேன்கள், தட்டு ரிக்ஷாக்கள், இவற்றுக்கு இடையேதான் வாகன போக்குவரத்தும் பல்வேறு நெருக்கடிகளுக்கு இடையே நடந்து வருகிறது.

ஜி.கார்னருக்கு மாற்ற முடிவு
இந்த பிரச்சினைகளை தீர்ப்பதற்காக வெல்ல மண்டியையும், வெங்காய மண்டியையும் திருச்சி-சென்னை பைபாஸ் சாலையில் பொன்மலை ஜி.கார்னர் பகுதியில் உள்ள மாநகராட்சி நவீன மாட்டிறைச்சி கூடம் அருகில் உள்ள 6 ஏக்கர் நிலத்திற்கு மாற்றம் செய்வது என மாநகராட்சி கூட்டத்தில் தீர்மானம் நிறைவேற்றப்பட்டது. இந்த தீர்மானத்தின்படி மேயர், ஆணையர் மற்றும் அதிகாரிகள் வெல்லமண்டி, வெங்காய மண்டி அமைய உள்ள இடத்தையும் நேரடியாக பார்வையிட்டு ஆய்வு செய்தனர்.

அவர்கள் பார்வையிட்டு ஆய்வு செய்து ஒரு ஆண்டு காலம் கடந்து விட்டது. ஆனால் வெல்ல மண்டியும், வெங்காய மண்டியும் இன்னும் மாற்றம் செய்யப்படவில்லை. மாற்றும் திட்டம் என்ன ஆனது? ஏன் இன்னும் இந்த திட்டத்தை அமல்படுத்த வில்லை என்பதும் வெளியிடப்படவில்லை. அப்படியே கிடப்பில் போடப்பட்டு விட்டது.
பொன்மலை ஜி கார்னர் பகுதிக்கு வெங்காய மண்டியும், வெல்ல மண்டியும் மாற்றப்பட்டு விட்டால் சரக்கு இறக்குவதற்காகவோ அல்லது ஏற்றுவதற்காகவோ லாரிகள் மற்றும் வேன் போன்ற வாகனங்கள் திருச்சி நகருக்குள் வரவேண்டிய அவசியமே இல்லாமல் போய்விடும். பைபாஸ் சாலை வழியாக வந்து புதிய இடத்தில் சரக்குகளை ஏற்றி இறக்கி விட்டு அப்படியே தாங்கள் செல்லவேண்டிய இடங்களுக்கு சென்று விடலாம்.

லாரிகள் வர தடை விதிக்க வேண்டும்

திருச்சி நகருக்குள் லாரிகள் வரவில்லை என்றால் போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடியும் ஏற்படாது. உயிர்ப்பலி வாங்கும் விபத்துக்களில் இருந்தும் மக்கள் தப்பிக்க முடியும். திருச்சி நகருக்குள் நடக்கும் சாலை விபத்துக்களில் பெரும்பாலானவை லாரிகள் மூலமே நிகழ்ந்து உள்ளதாக புள்ளி விவரங்கள் கூறுகின்றன. விபத்துக்களில் இருந்து மக்களை பாதுகாப்பதற்காக சென்னை, மதுரை, கோவை போன்ற பெரிய நகரங்களில் இருப்பது போல் பகல் நேரங்களில் லாரிகளை திருச்சி நகருக்குள் அனுமதிப்பதற்கும் தடை விதிக்க வேண்டும். மதுரையில் காலை 6 மணியில் இருந்து இரவு 10 மணி வரை லாரிகள் உள்ளே வரக்கூடாது என்பது கண்டிப்பான விதிமுறையாகும். இதனை போலீசார் செம்மையாக அமல் படுத்தி வருகிறார்கள்.

அதைப்போன்று திருச்சி நகரிலும் இரவு 10 மணியில் இருந்து காலை 6 மணி வரை மட்டுமே லாரிகளை வருவதற்கு அனுமதித்தும், மற்ற நேரங்களில் லாரிகளை அனுமதிக்காமல் தடை விதித்தும் மாநகர போக்குவரத்து போலீசார் நடவடிக்கை எடுக்க வேண்டும் என்பதே திருச்சி மாநகர மக்களின் கோரிக்கையாகும்.

New market to come up at Kallikudi

Image

The establishment of Central Market for Vegetables, Fruits, and Flowers, announced by Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa on Monday, is expected to help decongest the Gandhi Market, one of the biggest markets in the State, in the city.

The Central Market to be established on a 9.79-acre plot on the outskirts of the city at Kallikudi, off the Tiruchi-Madurai National Highway, about 15 km from here, could emerge as a hub for vegetables, fruits, and flowers markets in the city, official sources said.

The market would be established at a cost of Rs. 77.06 crore with financial assistance under the Rural Infrastructure Development Fund of the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development, sources told The Hindu here on Tuesday. According to the sources, the land for the market had been acquired and would be set up through the Tiruchi Market Committee.

Going by the Chief Minister’s announcement, the market would have all modern infrastructure with 1,000 shops, a cold storage of 2,000 tonne capacity, sorting and grading yards and wide internal roads to facilitate easy movement of trucks loading and unloading goods at the facility.

The announcement comes in the wake of the long-pending demand for shifting the wholesale section of the Gandhi Market to a spacious location on the outskirts of the city. However, there was no indication yet whether the wholesale traders of the Gandhi Market would be asked to shift to the new facility. With the project being drawn up by the Agri Business and Marketing Department, the Tiruchirapalli City Corporation sources have no clue on whether the wholesale traders would be shifted to Kallikudi. “We do not know whether the Gandhi Market traders are to be shifted. But the idea is to decongest the Gandhi Market and the new facility could emerge as a hub for wholesale trade in future,” a senior official said.

He pointed out that the corporation had been trying to shift sections of the wholesale trade to different places including the Viragupettai, Sengulam, and Panchapur. “Ideally, we would like to have only the retail market here,” he said.

The corporation had recently drawn up a plan to renovate the Gandhi Market, established in 1940, in a phased manner over the next few years. Spread over 6.5 acres of land with over 1,500 shops, including platform shops, the market has poor infrastructure and amenities. Shops are in a dilapidated condition and even slight showers make the area slushy. Lack of hygiene had been a perennial problem. Different sections of the market spills over the Madurai Road, Thanjavur Road, Nelpettai Road, East Boulevard Road, and Sub-Jail Road, and have become a major traffic bottleneck in the city.

The corporation, the sources said, would go ahead with its renovation plans as per a master plan.

Traders prefer wholesale and retail markets to be together

Given the Tiruchirapalli City Corporation’s recent efforts to shift wholesale market, traders continue to pitch for establishing an integrated market closer to the city to give them better access to retail market.

Reacting to the Chief Minister’s announcement on establishing a central market at Kallikudi, traders’ representatives reiterated their position that wholesale markets should not be shifted far too away from the retail sections.

“Ideally, we want the authorities to establish an integrated market possibly at Ariyamangalam, which is closer to the city. We have been suggesting the establishment of the market by reclaiming a part of the Ariyamangalam garbage dump yard or along the Tiruchi-Chennai Bypass. The site at Kallikudi, though better than Panchapur, is far too away,” said U.S. Karuppiah, president, Tiruchi Gandhi Market All Traders’ Association.

Mr. Karuppiah contends that moving the wholesale section far too away from the retail market could lead to loss of business for traders. He even suggests the redevelopment of the Gandhi Market with better amenities to decongest the area.

A representative of the fruits merchants’ association too felt that Kallikudi was more than 15 km away and could add up to the transportation costs for traders. Besides, the wholesale and retail sections should be located together or at least close to each other, he said.

A. Nagarajan, president, Tamil Nadu Horticulture Crop Producers’ Association, conceded that farmers were facing problems in transporting their produce to the Gandhi Market given the traffic congestion. Wholesale trade could be moved to the new facility at Kallikudi but retailers would not relish moving there, he said.

Traders rotting in a cramped banana market

Image

Cramped for space and lacking in amenities, ‘Vazhakkai Mandi,’ the wholesale banana market functioning adjacent to Gandhi Market in the city, cries for better infrastructure.

Although the market is one of the biggest in the region from where retail traders from different districts buy the fruit in auctions every day, it has been functioning with primitive infrastructure amidst poor sanitary conditions down the years.

With Tiruchi and neighbouring Karur districts being major banana-growing districts in the State, over 65 banana traders operate out of the market.

The market attracts about 15,000 to 20,000 banana bunches every day and the arrivals are auctioned and transported every evening. Yet, the auctions are held at a small open space where all banana bunches have been off loaded, hardly leaving any space for movement of people.

“Lack of space in the market forces us to offload and auction our produce right outside the market on the East Boulevard Road. The auction centre has no roof and only traders have now put up a temporary thatched roof (pandal) to protect the fruits from the scorching sun. The corporation has not provided any amenities,” says a trader who does not want to be identified.

Traders and farmers complain over the poor sanitary condition at the market. The adjoining fish market and a drain flowing nearby leave an overpowering stench. Traders claim the corporation does not even provide sanitary workers to clear the organic waste generated at the market. Traders themselves have hired 10 workers to remove the garbage generated in the market and dump it outside for the corporation vehicles to transport them to the garbage dump.

A few months ago, the corporation had proposed to shift the banana market to the Viragupettai overhead tank complex by building a commercial complex at the site. However, there has been no progress on the decision so far. The move met with resistance from traders.

Sources in the corporation pointed out that the civic body has decided to renovate the Gandhi Market, which was established 70 years ago, for providing better amenities.

Soon, vehicle users have to pay for parking around Gandhi Market

Even as Tiruchirapalli City Corporation is planning a slew of measures to renovate and re-develop the over 70-year-old Gandhi Market, roads around the market continue to be constricted by encroachments by platform traders and indiscriminate parking of vehicles.

Taking cognisance of the congestion around the market, the civic body has planned to shift the onion and banana wholesale markets to Sengulam Colony market and Viragupettai overhead water tank complex.

The corporation has also turned its attention to the problem of vehicles being parked by visitors. It has decided to create two two-wheeler parking lots in an attempt to regulate the vehicle parking and to ensure that the disorderly parking of vehicles does not hinder traffic flow. The two temporary parking lots are to be established in front of the existing fish market and towards the East Boulevard Road up to Vazhakkai Mandi . The corporation has also fixed a parking fee of Rs. 2 for bicycles and Rs. 4 for motorcycles or mopeds for four hours. The fee was approved by the corporation council last week. An official resolution on the subject said it had become essential to regulate the parking of vehicles in the interest of traders and people visiting the market.

Welcoming the move, Rangarajan, a city resident who frequents the market, pointed out that all along visitors to the market had to park their vehicles on the roadside as there was no designated parking area. The one near War Memorial was always full. However, he insisted that the corporation take steps to regulate the parking of lorries transporting goods and strictly enforce the timings for their entry to the city.

The civic body has also decided to construct two permanent parking lots at the old slaughter house and diamond jubilee complex, which are to be renovated soon.

Trichy Corporation proposes to relocate banana market

Image

Tiruchirapalli City Corporation has drawn up a proposal to shift the vazhakkai mandi, the wholesale banana market, currently functioning adjacent to Gandhi Market, to Viragupettai, notwithstanding reservations expressed by traders.

The move comes in the wake of the recent inspection of the site by Mayor A. Jaya and senior corporation officials.

During the inspection, the Mayor instructed the officials to construct shops at Viragupettai Overhead Drinking Water Tank (OHT) complex for accommodating some of the traders of the banana market. The proposal would now be placed before the corporation council for approval.

As per the proposal, all the 66 banana traders are to be shifted to Viragupettai OHT complex, which officials say is close to the existing mandi.

The corporation says Virugupettai OHT complex has been cleared of encroachments and has space for accommodating the banana traders. Gandhi Market, officials point out, was established about 70 years ago, and it is currently facing severe space constraint.

The wholesale banana market located adjacent to it on the roadside is causing congestion.

The civic body proposes to create the necessary infrastructure for the banana traders at the Viragupettai site. Once the banana market is shifted, it plans to build a modern wholesale and retail fish market at the place with financial assistance from National Fisheries Development Corporation.

However, representatives of Plantain Traders Association of Gandhi Market say they have not got any information in this regard from the corporation.

They contend it is impractical to shift the wholesale traders in bits and pieces to different parts of the city.

“Shifting us to Virugapettai will not solve the problem as the place does not have required facilities. We do not want to inconvenience the people. We are ready to move if the corporation creates an integrated bus stand with adequate space for our operations,” said K.P. Palanivel of the association.

Although efforts were made to shift some of the wholesale sections of Gandhi Market to G. Corner grounds, the move has been dropped owing to litigation over the land.

Corporation Commissioner V.P. Thandapani has already gone on record stating that the civic body is planning to establish an integrated market and officials say efforts are on to identify a suitable site.
