Solar power to light up Samayapuram temple in Tiruchi

Image

Three solar plants will be set up at Samayapuram Sri Mariamman temple at an estimate of Rs. 40 lakh. The move by Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Board aims at saving the bi-monthly power consumption charge which is around Rs. 5 lakh at present.

Each plant with an installed capacity of 10 kV will be set up at Ammavasai mandapam, Mudimandapam, and guest house, according to G. Thennarasu, Joint Commissioner of the temple. Work on setting up the plants would commence some time in December or January. He told The Hindu on Thursday that in addition to these three plants, it has been planned to install another plant with similar capacity at the temple in course of time.

On the ongoing development work being implemented for improving amenities for devotees, Mr. Thennarsu said that the progress of work was being monitored periodically. Work-specific deadline has been fixed for ensuring expeditious completion.

He said that work on the expansion of the northern and southern prakarams of the temple was also being executed in full swing. “The available space is being utilised fully for arranging queues,” he said. He said that the work on the five-tier rajagopuram under construction at an estimate of Rs. 60 lakh would be completed in a phased manner. The work up to basal plane (kalkaram) would be completed by December 31. Similarly, the guest house with a plinth area of 14,678 sq. ft. would be ready by December 31. Only its interior decoration and furniture-related work needed to be completed, which has 16 suits each on the ground floor and first floor. This work has been taken up at a cost of Rs. 2.20 crore.

Mr. Thennarasu said that Ammavasai mandapam with a large plinth area of 26,188 sq. ft. was constructed at an estimate of Rs. 6.1 crore. A major civil work had been completed here and only elevation work needed to be completed. A deadline of December 31 had been fixed for this work too. Ammavavasi mandapam would provide adequate protection and safety to a large number of devotees staying at the temple on New Moon Day and at major festivals.

Corporation to take up skywalk project on BOT basis

The City Corporation has decided to appoint a consultant to design and prepare detailed project report for construction of elevated walkways at the Central Bus Stand and Melapudur in the city.

The Corporation proposes to take up the project under the Build Operate Transfer (BOT) basis and the consultant would be vested with the task of preparing a feasibility report and financial operation plan as well.

The move comes in the wake of a demand for regulating pedestrian crossing outside the Central Bus Stand and the Melapudur Junction.

The Melapudur Junction, where three schools are located, has of late turned an accident-prone zone as a large number of students converge during the peak hours.

The Corporation had earlier planned to build foot-over-bridges at different places in the city. The official resolution that was approved by the council now proposes the construction of ‘skywalks,’ which are usually elevated and enclosed walkways.

The Council also approved the hiring of separate consultants for designing and preparing detailed project report for construction of a shopping complex behind the Gandhi Market to accommodate about 100 meat and egg traders and a dormitory with associate amenities for truck drivers at the truck parking lot on the East Boulevard Road in the city.

Battered roads in industrial estate give back-breaking ride

Image

Visitors to the Thuvakudi Industrial Estate in the outskirts of the city are in for a back-breaking ride owing to the battered condition of the roads inside the estate.

The recent spell of rain has only worsened the situation as the potholes on the roads have turned into slush pools. Most of the interior roads have not been re-laid for years and potholes have developed at several places. Trailer lorries carrying raw material and huge fabricated steel structures to and from the estate negotiate the roads with much difficulty and have to move at a snail’s pace.

The industrial estate, promoted by the Small Industries Development Corporation (SIDCO), with about 150 industrial units forms an important part of the fabrication cluster in Tiruchi.

Roads in the industrial estate have been crying for maintenance for more than two decades. Apparently faced with financial constraints, the SIDCO has not been able to take up regular maintenance. Attempts made by the BHEL Small Industries Association (BHELSIA) a few years back to get assistance from the Union government for improving the roads and other civic amenities inside the estate has proved unsuccessful .

A few years back the industrial estate was handed over to the Thuvakudi municipality, but the civic body has not been able to improve the conditions. “The condition of the roads has remained bad for many years. We are paying property and professional tax to the municipality and hope the civic body would improve things,” said M. Srinivasan, president, BHELSIA.

When contacted, E. Kayambu, chairman, Thuvakudi Municipality, said the civic body was hampered by funds constraint and had to accord priority for improving roads which are more widely used by the general public. The municipality has re-laid a road leading from BHEL Nagar. “We do not get much funds and are doing our best to improve the situation with available funds,” he said.

SBI Macquarie buys 74% stake in Trichy Tollway


SBI Macquarie Infrastructure Trust has acquired 74% stake in a Trichy road project developed by IJM of Malaysia and Shapoorji Pallonji for Rs 275 crore. This is SBI Macquarie's third buy in the road space in the last one year.


India's road sector is abuzz with talks of mergers and acquisition, with smaller and more aggressive bidders piling up orders that have run into viability issues, creating an opportunity for financial and strategic investors to shop around for distressed projects.

"Trichy Tollway project has so far made losses but the project is up and running and there are no execution risks involved. Given the toll collections, the valuation looks attractive," a source close tot the development told ET.


Trichy Tollway Private is a 50:50 joint venture between IJM and Shapoorji Pallonji. The project entails quadrupling the two-lane 92.75 km stretch on National Highway 45, and subsequently operating and maintaining it for 20 years under a concession with National Highways Authority of India. The project started commercial operation in September 2009 and has three years of operating history.

SBI Macquarie bought almost equal stake from the two JV partners, reducing their collective stake to 26%. Post the acquisition, SBI Macquarie has roped in Feedback Brisa Highways OMT, a JV between Feedback Infrastructure and Brisa, Auto Estradas de Portugal SA, to operate and maintain the project.

SBI Macquarie Infra is managed by a JV established in 2008 between State Bank of India, Macquarie Capital Group and International Finance Corporation. It had earlier bought 35% stake in Ashoka Buildcon's roads arm for Rs 800 crore. It also acquired 74% stake in GMR's Jadcherla Expressways for Rs 203 crore.

Cash-strapped infrastructure developers are in the market looking for equity investment in 40 projects. Many of these projects are up for sale because of lower-than-expected toll collection, rising cost of credit and bottlenecks in land acquisition.

A few highly leveraged developers are also scouting for investors to raise funds to finance other projects. In the past, companies like Hindustan Construction Company and Ashoka Buildcon have inducted equity investors for their subsidiaries.
