Oil recycling company alleges politics behind people's protest

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Southern Refineries Limited, an oil recycling company which has been functioning for the past 20 years at Parassala, is facing closure after stiff objection from a section of local residents. The company management claimed that they were being unnecessarily targeted by a section of local residents alleging environmental pollution.

Even a clearance certificate from the state pollution control board and a high court verdict in favour of the company did not help it overcome the resistance of the locals, who are allegedly mobilized by some local politicians with vested interests.

On Friday, over 50 people barged into the company plant at Parassala and manhandled the company employees as the company and unleashed mayhem. The company was scheduled to reopen on Friday with the high court ruling in the company's favour, after remaining closed for over six months, following a dispute with the local panchayat.

"This is the first and only company to get the approval of the central government, which recycles petroleum products that too without causing environmental hazards," said group manager of the Southern Refineries Company Limited, Sreekumar.

The dispute with the local people started when the company gave permanent jobs to the labourers, who took part in the construction of the plant avoiding the candidates recommended by a local politician. Ever since he has been giving headaches to the company by organizing public agitations frequently. The problem became worse recently when UDF took over the panchayat from LDF, which has been in power for over the past 15 years.

However, the panchayat officials said that the company has been functioning without a licence and naturally it has to be shut down. "No company can function without a valid licence issued by the local panchayat concerned. Also the functioning of company has caused serious health problems to the people in the neighbourhood," said Parassala panchayat president T K Sarojini.

Monorail Project: Third Phase to reach Varkala

Power and Transport Minister Aryadan Mohammed asserted in the Assembly on Tuesday that the monorail project for the capital city will become a reality during the tenure of the present Government itself.

“No force can alter it,” he declared, while replying to a submission raised by Varkala Kahar MLA of the Congress. The Minister made it clear that the proposed monorail project would be extended to Varkala in its third phase.

The Minister also rubbished reports that the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had raised objections to the project. “The DMRC has not said whether the project is viable or not,” said Aryadan Mohammed in unequivocal terms.

“But there are forces, including a section of the media, working overtime to prevent the coming of E Sreedharan,” he alleged and said that they would be exposed soon.

Presenting the submission, Varkala Kahar said that monorail was a dream project and all measures should be taken to make it a reality.

‘’NATPAC has handed over the project report to DMRC and the latter has been asked to file a detailed project report within a month,’’ he said.

He also pointed out that in capital cities like Chennai, elevated rail projects extend to about 300 km and, as such, the Thiruvananthapuram project should be extended to Varkala, which is a burgeoning tourist destination and to Nedumangad, considering its importance as a path which dots pioneering institutions like IIST.

Aryadan said that the project will be implemented at any cost. “In the third phase, the proposal to extend the route of monorail up to Varkala will be considered,” he said.

“No, it will be definitely extended,” he said on a second thought, thereby dispelling doubts.

DMRC is expected to submit a DPR by July 9, for which, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy has issued directives. The DPR will come up for consideration of the state cabinet.

I totally agree with you. But this is not just me who is posting such news. If you scroll back few pages how many news and pictures are the real 'Projects'. And one more thing , Here everyone is interested in creating new thread once some project/ building started . Some times I am really confused because most of the important events/ activities in this city has got its own thread. So what exactly comes under Projects thead unless it is a duplication of same news.

Rajesh, you have hit the nail on the head. There are focused threads for most major projects in the city. However, that does not mean that the main Projects thread is a catch-all. Instead, it can be used to report the most important news of projects that either do not have a sub-thread or when the news is noteworthy enough to be highlighted in the main thread which has the highest readership and tends to be checked first by casual readers.

IMHO, except maybe for the General Discussions thread, everyone needs to be selective in what they post even in the sub-threads. For example, a school cultural day or the opening of a coaching center need not be posted in the Education and Research Thread. This is an international forum, so a subjective call on what is note-worthy and what is not needs to be taken by each one of us.

Of course, it's not my call to shape anyone's opinions, just take it as a spot of advice and a request from a guy who's probably been on here longer than anyone else.

On that note, I am happy to note that seven very exciting and informative years have gone by since joining SSC!

Thiruvananthapuram: CRIP to miss June 30 deadline too

Thiruvananthapuram: The City Road Improvement Project (CRIP) will not meet the deadline, this time too. As June 30, the deadline set for completion of the remaining Phase II and Phase III works, is nearing, a number of road works have hit a roadblock. Issues ranging from failure to acquire land to non-cooperation of various government departments are the reasons behind the hurdle.
Works of Thakaraparambu flyover, Medical College-Ulloor, Ulloor-Kochulloor, Model School-Ponnara Park, G G Hospital-Venpalavattom and Peroorkada-Vazhayila are progressing. According to officials of Kerala Road Fund Board (KRFB), except Thakaraparambu flyover, which would take another three years to complete, road works would be over in two-three months. However, some issues remain unaddressed.
The ongoing work of Thampanoor bus stand is one of the major hurdles for the widening of Thampanoor-Overbridge Road. The temporary sheds constructed for the commuters need to be removed for the construction of drains. However, KSRTC has not heeded to the request of KRFB so far. The Thiruvananthapuram Road Development Company Limited (TRDCL), concessionaire of the CRIP, said work cannot progress without the construction of drains. The issue of water-logging in this area could be resolved only through the joint effort of TRDCL, KSUDP and the Railways.

Work on the nearby Thampanoor-Model School stretch is stuck for years owing to the Kerala Water Authority’s (KWA’s) sewerage works and JICA-assisted water works. However, TRDCL project engineer Anil Kumar Pandala said the Thampanoor-Model School stretch would be ready for tarring in two weeks.
KWA plays villain in the works on Ulloor-Kochulloor stretch too. In August 2010, TRDCL took over the stretch to complete works in a three-month period. However, the work got delayed indefinitely. Now, when road work is nearing completion, work of JNNRUM has hit the junction improvement project at Ulloor. On the Medical College-Ulloor stretch, land belonging to the Housing Board is yet to be acquired.
Along the Vanchiyoor-Old Collectorate road, protest against felling of 64 trees for the road development is the major issue faced by the road developers. The plan is to widen the road by covering concrete slabs over the Amayizhanjan canal. Adviser to CRIP Dr N S Sreenivasan is expected to review the revised plan, which proposes to save as many trees as possible, in July.
The land acquisition issue at Pattoor cemetery area is still unresolved as the Corporation is yet to take a decision on the complaint raised by Pharmacy Council Employees’ Union against construction of a vault near a compound wall of their institution.
Unless KRFB and Railways form a consensus on the Railway Overbridge at Pettah, the stretch will remain a major bottleneck. Land acquisition is a major issue on a number of stretches, including MG Road, Peroorkada-Vazhayila, Medical College-Ulloor etc.
“We use batch-type hotmix plant, which is worth Rs 3 crore. The capacity of the plant is 1,000 metric tonnes. Already, it is operated on loss. If we go ahead with the work ignoring small stretches, the renovation of the stretch, in a later stage, would be a costly affair,” said Pandala.

Nice photo, would have been better if that lamp/electric lines were not there infront of lens.

Priyadarshini planetarium to get major facelift soon

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Visitors can hope for better stargazing soon, as the Priyadarshini Planetarium in the city is on for a major facelift through its modernisation drive. Plans are afoot to construct a permanent astrodome to place its 14-inch reflective telescope currently placed in a make shift mobile hut for night sky observation.

"The permanent astrodome will be a huge hemispherical dome with six meter height and six meter diameter having an upper hemisphere to rotate on a spherical dome. The telescope installed could be rotated to trace the stellar space for enhanced celestial observation," Kerala State Science and Technology Museum (KSTM) director Arul Gerald Prakash told TOI on Saturday.

Tenders will be invited for the indigenous construction of the dome and for modernisation of the galleries at KSTM.

Though the hemispherical dome will cost Rs15 lakh, if indigenously manufactured it will incur only Rs 6 lakh. Once the construction work starts, it would be completed in about two months, he said.

As part of modernization, the existing galleries on electronics, popular science, mathematics, mechanical, automobile, bio-medical engineering, computers, solar energy, and space will have more surprises and interactive science quizzes on touch screen kiosks.

It is also planned to set up a model of Idukki dam at the science park, so that visitors and students can feel an arch dam and study different aspects of a dam. The Butterfly Park and Cacti Park will be developed further, the officials said.

It would incur an expenditure of Rs 9 crore to take up the works as part of modernisation, said officials at KSTM housing the Planetarium. "The funds have been earmarked but KSTM is yet to receive that to begin the modernisation works," the officials said.
