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.

Traders want integrated complex on the lines of Koyambedu market

Image

Corporation Commissioner V.P. Thandapani on Thursday held a meeting with representatives of some of the wholesale traders associations of Gandhi Market to discuss the civic body’s plans to shift some sections of the wholesale traders.

The meeting comes close on the heels of Mayor A. Jaya’s recent announcement on shifting the onion wholesale traders to the Sengulam Colony market and part of the banana wholesale section to Virugapettai overhead water tank complex.

While the onion wholesale traders are currently functioning along the Sub-Jail Road outside Gandhi Market, banana traders are operating out of shops adjacent to the market.

Mr. Thandapani, according to sources in the associations which participated in the preliminary meeting, briefed the traders on the civic body’s latest plans to decongest the market and its immediate surroundings to ease the traffic congestion. The corporation, he said, had planned to establish an integrated market complex at Panchapur on the outskirts to move the wholesale sections of Gandhi Market. Besides, it had planned to renovate Gandhi Market in three phases.

The civic body had planned to shift the onion wholesale market and part of the banana wholesale traders as an interim measure until the integrated market was built over the next few years.

A cross-section of the traders, who attended the meeting, however, reiterated their demand that the corporation establish an integrated market on the lines of Koyambedu market in Chennai, and opposed the move to shift the wholesale traders in bits and pieces. Traders could not shift to different places frequently as it would affect their business. Corporation sources indicated that the Mayor was likely to hold a consultative meeting with the traders next week.Mr. Thandapani also urged the traders to come forward to settle pending tax litigations through the mega Lok Adalat planned on November 23.

மாநகராட்சி கமிஷனர் பெருமிதம் கழிப்பிட பராமரிப்பில் திருச்சி முன்னோடி

திருச்சி: ""பொது கழிப்பிட பராமரிப்பில் திருச்சி முன்னோடியாக திகழ்கிறது,'' என, மாநகராட்சி கமிஷனர் தண்டபாணி கூறினார்.

திருச்சி மாநகராட்சி சார்பில் உலக கழிவறை தின நாள் கொண்டாடப்பட்டது. மாநகராட்சி மைய அலுவலக வளாகத்தில் நடந்த இந்த விழாவுக்கு மேயர் ஜெயா தலைமை வகித்தார்.

விழாவுக்கு முன்னிலை வகித்த மாநகராட்சி கமிஷனர் தண்டபாணி பேசியதாவது:
ஆண்டுதோறும் நவம்பர் 19ம் தேதி உலக கழிவறை தினமாக கொண்டாடப்படுகிறது. திருச்சி மாநகராட்சியில் 286 குடிசைப் பகுதிகள் உள்ளன. 4 ஆயிரத்து 643 இருக்கைகள் கொண்ட, 383 பொது கழிப்பிடங்கள் உள்ளன.

இவற்றில், கடந்த 2008ம் ஆண்டு முதல் கிராமாலயா தொண்டு நிறுவனத்தின் அலைகள் மகளிர் குழு சார்பில் 67, ஸ்கோப் சார்பில் 28, சேவை சார்பில் 42, என மொத்தம் 137 பொது கழிப்பிடங்கள் பராமரிக்கப்பட்டு வருகிறது. இதன் மூலம் சமுதாயம் சார்ந்த கழிப்பிட பராமரிப்பில் திருச்சி மாநகராட்சி முன்னோடியாக உள்ளது.
உலக கழிப்பறை தினத்தை முன்னிட்டு, 76 மாநகராட்சி பள்ளிகள், தனியார் பள்ளிகளில் கழிப்பிட பயன்பாடு, பராமரிப்பின் அவசியம் குறித்த விழப்புணர்வு துண்டு பிரசுரங்கள், திறந்த வெளி கழிப்பிடங்களை புறக்கணித்தல் குறித்த போஸ்டர்கள் வழங்கப்பட்டு, பள்ளி துவங்கும் முன் உறுதி மொழி ஏற்கப்பட்டது.
இவ்வாறு அவர் பேசினார்.

கிராமாலயா நிறுவனர் தாமோதரன் பேசுகையில், ""மிக சுகாதாரமான நாடாக விளங்கும் சிங்கப்பூரில் தான் முதன்முதலாக 2001ம் ஆண்டு உலக கழிப்பறை தின அறிவிப்பு வெளியிடப்பட்டது. ஒரு காலத்தில் திருச்சியில் இருந்து குஜராத், வார்தா போன்ற பகுதிகளுக்கு சென்று கழிப்பிட பராமரிப்பு, அமைத்தல் குறித்து பார்வையிட்டு திரும்பிய நிலை மாறி, தற்போது உலக அளவில் இருந்து திருச்சியில் உள்ள கழிப்பிட வசதிகளை பார்வையிடும் நிலை உருவாகியுள்ளது,'' என்றார்.
விழாவில், சிறப்பாக கழிப்பிடங்களை பராமரித்த கிராமாலயா அலைகள் குழுவை சேர்ந்த 12 குழுக்களுக்கு பரிசுகளை மேயர் ஜெயா வழங்கி, கிராமாலயா இணைதளத்தையும் துவக்கி வைத்தார்.
விழாவில், துணை மேயர் ஆசிக் மீரா மற்றும் கோட்டத் தலைவர்கள், கவுன்சிலர்கள் உள்பட பலர் பங்கேற்றனர்.

Good better to move the entire market, so now Panchapur is ruled out for integrated bus stand option.

Integrated market to come up at Panchapur

Project to see fruition in two-and-a-half years: Commissioner

The Tiruchirapalli City Corporation has planned to establish an integrated market complex at Panchapur on the outskirts of the city to move the wholesale sections of the Gandhi Market.

The recent plans on shifting the onion wholesale market to the Sengulam Colony Market and build some shops for the banana market at Viragupettai overhead water tank complex are only aimed at decongesting the Gandhi Market and easing traffic flow around the market, said Corporation Commissioner V.P. Thandapani here on Tuesday.

“We have drawn up a master plan to create an integrated market complex at Panchapur. However, the project could take about two to two-and-a-half years to come to fruition. In the meantime, the shifting of the onion wholesale market and partial shifting of banana to Viragupettai are interim measures,” he said, speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a function got up in connection with the World Toilet Day at the Corporation.

The Commissioner’s statement comes in the wake of the disappointment expressed by onion and banana wholesale traders over the civic body’s recent announcement on shifting the onion wholesale market and part of the banana wholesale traders. The traders associations had favoured shifting of the market to an integrated complex.

The corporation move comes following several unsuccessful attempts to identify a suitable site for shifting the wholesale section of Gandhi Market to the outskirts over the past couple of decades.

Just a few months ago, the civic body had announced a plan to shift the onion and banana traders to G. Corner grounds near Golden Rock only to drop it owing to certain legal impediments.

Mr. Thandapani said the proposal to renovate the Gandhi Market, established about 70 years ago, would be executed in three phases. Once renovated, the market spread over about 6.5 acres, could cater to the retail shops. The civic body has also taken up construction of a modern slaughter house behind the market. It has also decided to set up modern fish market one behind the Gandhi Market and the other on the Kuzhumani Road.

“The measures are aimed at easing the traffic congestion around the market pending the establishment of the integrated market complex,” he said.
