At least in 3 cases, LA is completed in most of the parts , years back. That is, pulleppady-thammanam, vyttila - kaniyampuzha - eroor and edappally- pookkattupady.

But in name of Metro, many roads are happening and with public going to face more terrible congestion due to actual Metro works, they too become more receptive for LA of new roads than oppose and peril in congestions.....

Well, I feel the Govt must consider developing a 6 lane bridge and highway from Aroor Junction to Amballur in Piravom via the mighty Vembanadu Lake and Aroorutty Island. This along with expanded 4 laned SPAP road, will prefectly make a Distant BYEPASS to Kalamassery and container traffic can move via this road, instead of getting into congestions at NH Byepass.

The bridge will be a landmark, something like Worli-Sealink road, will cut short of time to Piravom and will boost up proposed Electronics City. Vehicles from South, can prefectly byepass Kochi City and proceed to Kalamassery.

In one way, it also will form another semi circle, connecting Aroor-Aroorutty-Amballur-Kakkanad-Kalamassery-Container Road and back to HC Junction.

haven't heard about any. only one proposed is kakkanad-kothamangalam highway. however, there was something like "Nedumbassery-Kodaikkanal" Highway through old Aluva-Munnar road - of which no updates are available.

2 highways exists between Aluva and Perumbavoor(17-18kms). ⇨ Private Bus route via asokapuram and Ksrtc bus route. straightening any of this will not be a tough task. then, who is interested?

Both highways, though 2 lane, and a bit snaky, are in good shape.

So this amount is sanctioned for 4 laning current SP-AP road, i believe. As per earlier reports, it must be concrete tarring.

Can anyone clear up on Nettoor-Kundannur parallel bridge and Island-Kannangatt bridge?

Yea, both are snaky particularly the private route which will be more difficult to widen too. The KSRTC route is better, more straight, wide and can be developed much easier.

Ring Road project to ease traffic woes
Quote:
The National Transportation Planning and Research Centre (NATPAC) will soon prepare the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the proposed Rs 1,400-crore ring road project that will offer better connectivity to the east and west suburbs from the Vyttila Mobility Hub.
As the hub is expected to be the centre of city’s transportation activities in the coming years, the ring road, aimed at easing traffic congestion in the city, is likely to play a key role in the overall development of the Vyttila area. As per the plan, the ring road, which will start from the Vyttila Mobility Hub, will touch Kaniyampuzha, Seaport-Airport Road and extend towards the eastern side through Infopark, Pookkat t u p a d y and Smart City area to reach Kalamassery HMT and from there will link the Vallarpadam Container Terminal Road. It was Benny Behanan MLA who submitted the proposal for the project which was approved by the State. “The NATPAC will look into the possibilities of building the ring road from Kundannoor.
Since the Edappally bypass is too congested, we should look into the possibilities of exploring new routes and construct new roads to meet the traffic requirements,” Benny Behanan told City Express.
He added that the new ring road will offer better connectivity to areas that witness huge development activities like Smart City, Infopark and HMT.
The length of the proposed road is 15 km.
“As per the proposal, the ring road will be four-lane and a vehicle can cover 15 km stretch in 10 minutes.
The new route will not only help in saving the time, but also ease the traffic congestion,” he added. When asked about the mode of implementation, the MLA said it was too early to comment on that.
“Once the DPR is completed, we will look into the possibilities of executing it.
Various issues, inclduing land acquisition, have to be tackled. Only then will the State Government decide on whether to implement it in Public-Private Partnership mode or not,” he said.

Kannangatt Brigde will start just meters away from the proposed(controversial) Edakochi stadium and land next to the AP bridge . It will great for people of West Kochi (spclly Edakochi & Palluruthy).

It will also ease lot of traffic on Palluruthy-Thoppumpady Strech.

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Mumbai landmark Marine Drive has not been closed even for a single day for maintenance over the past several years Similarly, other city roads of Mumbai made of concrete too have been going strong without needing any maintenance.
Inspired by it, a PWD team led by Works Minister V K Ebrahim Kunju, which visited Mumbai last month, has decided to replicate the method of whitetopping roads in the state. On an experimental basis, a 25-km stretch of Seaport-Airport Road in Kochi will be given whitetopping, wherein high-grade cement mixture is laid over the existing road. The PWD will get technical support from India Cement Manufactors.
The riding quality of concrete roads is reportedly low as compared to bitumen roads. However, their durability is an attractive factor.
Roads with whitetopping generally do not need maintenance for the next 25 years. This technology will be of great importance for the state where crores are being spent every year for road maintenance.
“A mixture of high-grade concrete when laid over the road will be as smooth as the bitumen layer. Also, the road will get fixed within three days,” PWD Chief Engineer Baburaj says. Since a lot of friction is involved in riding on concrete roads, it generates more heat. Hence, whitetopping is more suitable for city roads where vehicle speed is generally low, he says.
If the pilot project is a success, the PWD plans to whitetop other roads too.http://ibnlive.in.com/news/seaportairport-road-to-be-reloaded/231928-60-116.html

ak.army, the Ring Road do not follow SP/AP road. What I could gather from the reports is that it has the following segments:

1. VMH to Eroor following the Kaniampuzha road.
2. Eroor-Thuthiyoor-Chitethukara new alignment to meet Infopark Expressway.
3. Infopark-Thengode-Vikasavani-Thevakkal
4. Thevakkal-HMT estate (Kinfra, NeST HT)-HMT

The Kakkanad-Kothamangalam or Kakkanad-Muvattupuzha road goes via the current SH from Kakkanad-Navodaya-Thengode-Veegaland-Pallikkara-Kizhakkambalam (bypassed)-Pattimattom. That much is confirmed. From Pattimattom, it could go via the Mangalathunada-Nellad route to Muvattupuzha, or via Airapuram- cheruvattoor to Kothamangalam.

I have proposed development of the Infopark-Morakkala-Pulinchodu-Kadayiruppu road as another radial, as part of a ring and radial road system. Sent copies to all ministers and MLAs, and got only the pre-printed card as response.

GCDA's move to reclaim 50 acres of backwaters rejected



Quote:
Giving out a clear signal that reclamation and construction will not be permitted in the Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) area, the Kerala State Coastal Zone Management Authority (KSCZMA) rejected the Greater Cochin Development Authority's (GCDA) proposal to reclaim 50 acres for initiating commercial activities along the first phase of the proposed 65-km ring road project connecting Marine Drive and Kumbalam.

But there is good news for GCDA, as the authority has cleared the first phase of the traffic flow corridor starting from Marine Drive through the coastal areas and linking major settlements like Kothad, Chennur, Varapuzha, Alangad, Aluva, Chengamanad, Keezhmad, Edathala, Puthencruz, Chottanikara, Mulamthuruthy and Udayamperur and crossing NH 17, the New NH AI Container Highway, the NH 47, Sea Port Airport Road and finally meeting the NH 47 at Kumbalam.. Senior government officials associated with the development told The Hindu on Tuesday that the proposed first phase of the ring road project passes through CRZ-I, CRZ-II, CRZ-III and CRZ-IV areas. GCDA had proposed setting up offices, parks and other development projects in the land to be reclaimed as part of the ring road project.

Reclamation for commercial purposes like shopping and housing complexes, hotels and entertainment activities was not permissible as per the CRZ notification, 1991. The proposal also attracted the provisions of the CRZ 2011 notification which allows no construction in the area covered by water bodies. Land reclamation, bunding or disturbing the natural course of sea water by undertaking such developments remains a prohibited activity in such regions, they said.

The GCDA's plan to make the project viable by developing the land and generate income out of it has received a setback with the decision taken by the KSCZMA. It is reliably learnt that the authority had made a presentation before the KSCZMA a few days back based on the study done by KITCO on the ring road project. It was conceived in 2006 and was remaining in the cold storage following several technical issues.

Only the first phase, stretched to about 10 km, passes along the backwater and demands large scale reclamation. The Authority also had projects to build land banks in suburbs and develop it on commercial purpose, which did not take off.

Somehow GCDA or Corporation should find a way to complete the Goshree Mamangalam Road. It will resolve all traffic problems in the North-Palarivattom stech.

They can think about ring road later..First complete the AP-SP road till Airport and get NHAI complete the Container road. This along with Goshree Mamangalam rd will be more than enuf to solve kochi's woe's

GCDA need to take up more viable projects than these kind of biggies. No worthwhile project has been completed by them for a long time!

Stick to basic's thats more than enuf to end the misery on KOCHI roads.

1) Build 4 Flyovers @ NH Bypass
2) Extend AP-SP Road till Nedumbassery in North and Aroor in South
3) Make Container road motorable and 4-Lane the remaining 8 Kms
4) Complete Goshree Mamangalam Road

Fortunately our problems are easily addressable if right steps are taken. I have lived in cities like Chennai n Mumbai where there is no solution to such issues..No Metro..or even N number of Flyovers will resolve the traffic problems

I'm still skeptical about Goshree-Mamangalam road.

some projects that can be easily completed,

1) SP-AP road development
2) TP road development
3) Flyovers at NH junctions
4) Aluva - Edapally 6 laning

And many others are happening due to Metro development, else that too would have been in papers now!
