Poor passenger traffic leaves Left Bank Road underutilised

Image

Despite strengthening of the Cauvery Left Bank Road by the State Highways Department last year, the Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation (TNSTC) continues to operate its direct services between Srirangam and Kumbakonam through the circuitous Lalgudi-Anbil-Thirukattupalli-Thiruvaiyaru route.

The TNSTC (Kumbakonam) operates two services daily to and fro Srirangam and Kumbakonam along the route. It is popular among pilgrims, who wish to avoid travelling in their own vehicles due to traffic congestion along the Tiruchi-Thanjavur route to Kumbakonam. But it entails an additional 20 km journey. While travel from Tiruchi to Thanjavur is smooth along the four-lane carriageway, the journey from there to Kumbakonam turns tough due to narrow roads.

The widening and strengthening of the Left Bank Road to a stretch of 12.5 km from Chennai Bypass Road till Grand Anicut was carried out at a cost of Rs. 39.50 crore under the Comprehensive Road Infrastructure Development Programme. The road was widened to 10.5 metres from 5.5 metres, and retaining walls were constructed at points where the embankment was low, for easier and quicker movement of city bues operated between Chathiram Bus Stand and Kallanai.

A new bridge is coming up at a cost of Rs. 67 crore across the Coleroon near the Grand Anicut connecting Kilikoodu along Thiruvanaikovil road with Koviladi in Thanjavur district. The one-km-long bridge supported by 24 spans will have a breadth of 12.90 metres with provision of 10.50 metres for carriageway.

Though a direct service along the route will provide quicker access to Kumbakonam from Srirangam, TNSTC is not able to avail the utility of the widened road since passenger traffic will not match up to the existing level, official sources said.

NCC cadets from Trichy bag 3 medals at national camp

National Cadet Corps (NCC) cadets from Trichy dominated the All India Vayu Sainik Camp (AIVSC) held at Jodhpur in Rajasthan by clinching three national level medals.

It is after a long gap that the Trichy group has won at the camp with cadets from Bishop Heber College and National College Trichy bagging medals in aero modelling and rifle shooting by representing the state in the national level camp.
While Rajasthan hosted the 12-day-long AIVSC-2107, which got over on November 3, Tamil Nadu directorate won the overall trophy.

Winning a medal in national level event that too within a year of training was indeed a big encouragement, says Flight Cadet V Ragul Velan who won bronze in .22 rifle shooting.

It was during his first year of college after joining NCC that he touched a rifle for the first time in his life and after that, there was no looking back. "Only NCC can provide such an opportunity in the country," says Ragul, a second year student of B Sc Physics at National College Trichy who aspires to join Indian Air Force. "Shooting is an expensive sport which cannot be afforded by all, but I got it free of cost through NCC. I made use of the opportunity and learnt its nuances that could help me compete with state level medal winners at AIVSC," says Ragul.

Hailing from a rural part of Karur district, V Vignesh developed fascination towards aircraft right from his school days. While he was keen on learning about aircraft, he joined air wing NCC in the college after knowing that it teaches aero modelling. With just 10 weeks of training, flight cadet Vignesh could not only learn to make control line aero model but also fly it on his own. He managed to win a bronze medal in control line flying event in the aerobatics category at the AIVSC.

Srivathsan, also a student from Bishop Herber College, clinched silver medal for static aero modelling. He is a second year B.Sc student.

NCC in the country is divided into 17 directorates that include Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Andaman and Nicobar islands (TN, P and AN). Every year cadets from these directorates compete in various events for the overall golden trophy.
"While TN, P and AN clinched the overall golden trophy this year, cadets from Trichy made the highest contribution by winning three out of the total seven medals that helped lift the overall score," says incoming commanding officer of 3 TN Air NCC (tech) squadron, Wing Commander C Gunasekaran.

Saying that NCC training certainly helps cadets stand apart from other students in the college, Gunasekaran said that "every medal winner has to go through seven stages of competitions by facing competitors from various states. It demands high level of discipline, determination and commitment to reach to this level. Hence these cadets when going out to the field after their graduation could easily swim even in troubled waters."

"We teach the air cadet to make a flying aero model that requires hours of teaching and enhance their artist skills. Thus, the air wing is not just about physical training but developing skillset and knowledge," added Gunasekaran.
