You are right but Neel Metal Fanalca is not doing their job well . Since the day Neel Metal Fanalca took over from ONYX they have had problems. They did not have enough equipments and I read an article wherein the COE of ONYX had to help Neel Metal to get over their problems initially. I sincerely hope the job of Solid Waste Management be given to proffessional companies like ONYX.

I agree with this statement. NMF is doing a very low-level pathetic job and cannot cope up with a urban city like Chennai. They dont have the gears nor the professional cleaners to do this. this is my view

Work on Adyar Poonga apace: Stalin
Chennai | Saturday, Apr 3 2010 IST

Quote:
Work on setting up Adyar Poonga, an ecological park at the Adyar Estuary Area, was progressing at a quick pace and would be opened to public view by the end of this year, Tamil Nadu Deputy Chief Minister M K Stalin today said.

Speaking to reporters after inspecting all the works associated with the eco-park after covering a distance of six km by walk on the Adyar River front, Mr Stalin said already works concerning the park were being underaken on an extent of 58 acre.

Estimates for the remaining 300 acre would be prepared soon, he said.


''As many as 90,000 varieties of saplings have been planted so far. Lakes were being desilted. A play area for children is also ready. A sum of Rs 19 crore has been allocated for the first phase of works.

A green centre would also be established as part of the project, he said. There has been increase in the numbers of fish, frogs, butterflies and dragonflies in the park which would prove to be the grandest of all in Chennai and help in improving its environment.

In a bid to take up ecological restoration of Adyar Estuary, the Tamil Nadu Government constituted the Adyar Poonga Trust in October 2006 and entrusted the work of preparing Ecological Restoration Plan with Pitchandikulam Forest Consultants, Auroville, in February 2007.

The Ecological Restoration Plan covers an extent of 358 acre for which the State has sanctioned Rs 100 crore. After extensive studies and stakeholder consultations, a draft plan was made ready before the work began.
Stalin walks 6 kms, inspects works

The works for setting up Adyar Poonga, that would have rich fauna, flora and green cover spreading over 300 acre, are on and it would be completed and opened to general public in December, 2010, said Tamilnadu Deputy Chief Minister M K Stalin. The Deputy Chief Minister walked six kilometres as he inspected all the works at the upcoming project.
.
Speaking after inspecting the works at Adyar Poonga, Stalin said the land development process is now complete here. A centre to create awareness on environment would be set up soon. ‘The lakes are desilted and construction of buildings at a cost of Rs 19 crore are already on. A recreation centre for children is being constructed besides over 90,000 saplings have been planted here’.

The remaining 300 acre of land would be identified and a green zone would be established, he added.

‘Giving a fillip to the project is the increase in the number of fish, frogs, butterflies, dragonflies. The park would be a jewel in the crown of Chennai and would help a lot in maintaining the green environs of the city’, he added.

In a bid to take up ecological restoration of Adyar Estuary, the Tamilnadu government formed Adyar Poonga Trust in October 2006. It entrusted the work of preparing Ecological Restoration Plan for Pitchandikulam Forest Consultants, Auroville, in February 2007.

Among those who accompanied the Deputy Chief Minister include Chennai Mayor M Subramaniam, Chennai River Water Authority member - secretary K Paneendhra Reddy, Deputy Chief Minister’s secretary K Dheenabandhu, Pichandikulam Forest Consultant Josh Farookh and senior government officials.

Phase I is 50 acres and Phase II is 300 acres. Guess the DPR for Phase II will be ready soon in about a month or two.

The Adayar poonga/EcoPark, in my opinion, if executed well would be the most noteworthy of all achievements of the current administration. They would have managed to convert a stenched, polluted, encroached stretch of land cum water tract to something pleasant tourist spot. I cannot wait!!

Kewl, thanks for the nice pics!

Those random arrangement of stones and stone pillars in the name of asthetics is pathetic Why can't they have a nice landscaping instead of allowing the regular thorny bushes to grow everywhere?

If the water that is there in those ponds are from Cooum, how come they claim that its clean water?

There is one obvious benefit - this will be a big water catchment area during rains and will improve the ground water in the neighboring areas.

You have been a great contributor ChennaiIndian.

Two Points - First of this is not Cooum. This is Adyar. Adyar river is slightly better than Cooum (not in regular human perception though.. lol)

Secondly, the entire project is not to create a park with landscaping. I think its aims are bit grander to bring back some local diversity that used to exist in the decades past. This will have great potential benefits (if and when coupled with the cleaning of the waterway happens). The diversity of flora and fauna is key to achieve this sort of bigger goal than have a landscaped park (the need for which I think is huge in entire chennai).

Thanks for the fresh pics, KB. Very first insights into the Adyar park ..

Btw, its not attractive to see pile of rocks and sand dust in the name of semblance of natural milieu. It does not have to be all artificial landscaping with paver blocks etc but every square inch has to be choreographed and managed in a certain way even if to be symbolic of something. It looks to me like that the expanse is not yet cleared of shrubs and unwanted vegetations, Is it because we are looking at unfinished product OR is this by intention?

And, if there is going to be a walkway lawn in the midst of water, better be paved and maintained ... again, I could be mistaken of the intent.
