8 footbridges to come up along Nelamangala expressway

NHAI to construct pedestrian facilities costing Rs one crore each

In a burgeoning city that has nudged the pedestrian out, the authorities have finally woken up to the problems of commuters on foot. The civic authorities and the traffic police, sources say, are putting their heads together working out measures for pedestrian safety. Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic & Security) Praveen Sood told Deccan Herald that his department has managed to woo the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to construct two foot-overbridges near Peenya through which the new Nelamangala Expressway passes. “We have written to the NHAI to provide for pedestrian crossing facilities at two places - one near Ken Metal Factory and another at Radhaswamy Ashram” “With the expressway in place, traffic is going to be non-stop and pedestrians will have a huge problem crossing the road without such facilities”.

Welcome relief : Approximately, 20,000 people are expected to cross this road daily and the proposed bridges are a welcome relief for them. The Peenya Industrial Estate alone has over five lakh workers. Allaying speculations of a ban on two and three-wheelers on the expressway, Sood said: “There are no such restrictions, the road will be open for them. However, not too many autorickshaws are expected to use the road.” Confirming plans to construct these bridges, the NHAI officials said “the project is in the process of fabrication and it should be complete in 75-90 days.” “We are looking at February next year,” they added. While the cost of the 19.5-km expressway connecting Nelamangala and Yeshwanthpur is estimated at Rs 720 crore, each of these bridges will cost the NHAI Rs 1 crore. NHAI officials said while the two bridges would be in the city limits, it would also construct six such bridges to facilitate pedestrian crossing, at an estimated Rs 6 crore. “The other bridges will come up at Binnamangala, Parle-G factory, Himalaya Truck Factory, Kunnigal bypass and Exhibition Centre,” officials from Navayuga Construction, in charge of the project.

CONNECTIVITY TO NELAMANGALA BOON FOR INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT


Quote:
Tumkur Road, after completion of the elevated stretch, promises to boost industrial growth in the vicinity. Deepti Ganapathy reports

When Peenya became one of Asia's largest industrial estates, it spurred industrial growth along the Tumkur Road corridor. Today, the region with its proximity to the international airport, railway network and well-connected roads, is rapidly spreading its wings. The congested Peenya Industrial Association has already sought-for and acquired 200 acres of land through the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) for the Greater Peenya Industrial Association.
Industrial growth has reached beyond Bangalore urban district and is now expanding in Nelamangala taluk. "There is tremendous demand for industrial land in this region," says a senior official in KIADB. "We are working towards making Dobaspet, one of the largest industrial areas here," he adds.
Focus on small towns
With the geographical boundary of the city changing its contours quite frequently and with the demand for jobs growing, the focus of the Department of Industries and Commerce has been to identify taluks and envisage their potential for investments. A study conducted by them in Nelamangala taluk alone showed a potential for investments of around Rs 128 crores in 915 units in tiny and small scale sectors and a potential for investment of around Rs 1,038 crores in 122 units in large and medium scale industries from 2006-11. Whether this projected investment of Rs 1,166 crores, creating employment for 60,000 people has been achieved in the last five years remains debatable, but the Dobaspet industrial area has been expanding from 1995 and is spread over four phases today.
Lowers rentals, manpower available
"There is a lot of scope to decongest Peenya, and Nelamangala taluk must be considered for its excellent connectivity now that the elevated NH to Tumkur is functional," says S M Hussein, industrialist in Peenya and former President of the Peenya Industrial Area Association.
"There is potential for easy availability of manpower and lower rentals in Nelamangala region. Logistics will be helped to a great extent if this happens," says Hussein. While the current rentals in Peenya are around Rs 10-12 per sqft and said to be very steep, rentals in Nelamangala are in the region of Rs 5-6 per sqft.
The Dobaspet Industrial Area in particular, which began functioning on April 21, 1995, has now grown to four phases. Located a mere 20 km from Nelamangala on the Tumkur route, it houses 475 large-scale fabrication units such as wind turbine blade product manufacturers, transformer manufacturers and even a hazardous waste management plant.
The growth trajectory has been steady in the development of these four phases in Dobaspet. Phase II came into being in 2005, and Phase III two years later in 2007. The final notification for Phase IV has now been published. All this indicates a steady growth for industries here.
"The elevated NH to Tumkur has given a major thrust to connectivity here," says S Yogamurthy, industrialist in Peenya. "It has not only reduced traffic density drastically, it has also brought down the travel time."

Focus on Nelamangala
Largest industrial area
Dobaspet Phase I-IV is tipped to be the largest industrial area in the region 20 km from Nelamangala, 50 km from Bangalore Phase I - 276.55 acres (61 units) Phase II - 67.05 acres (7 units) Phase III - (also known as Somapura Phase I): 1,314 acres (407 units) Phase IV - 1,300 acres (final notification already published)
Agri export zones
Bangalore Rural District is covered under three Agri Export Zones (AEZs) for gherkins, rose onion and flowers. There is potential for agro processing and agri exports. The facilities created here can handle around one million flowers a day.
Investment destination
Bangalore Rural District is an emerging investment destination for industrial segments such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, automobiles and auto components, aerospace, apparel, machine tools, precision components, tooling, food processing, floriculture etc, because of the proximity to Bangalore and due to the constraints on the availability of land in Bangalore Urban District.

CONNECTIVITY SET TO FUEL DEVELOPMENT AROUND TUMKUR ROAD

The developed Tumkur Road is not only fostering smoother traffic movement but also creating potential for logistics and residential units, says Leena Mudbidri

Quote:
The elevated Tumkur Road project which was built at an estimated cost of Rs 719 crore has significantly decongested the stretch between Nelamangala and the Outer Ring Road (ORR) and is gradually creating a host of small housing belts along its route. Being National Highway 4, Tumkur Road has primarily been known as a transport and logistics hub with more than 80 percent of the traffic from south and north Karnataka, Goa and Maharashtra entering Bangalore through this route.
The number of new logistics and warehousing units coming up on this route is spurring the need for residential clusters around.
Enhanced connectivity
This six-lane Tumkur Road stretch with a 4.5 km elevated portion has reduced travel time between Nelamangala and the ORR junction to about 15 minutes. "We are happy that more PCUs (passenger car units) are using the main carriageway, though many still prefer the service roads. Commuters are comfortable using this main carriageway and there are no more traffic blockages," says a senior NHAI official. "Though the ORR junction is a little congested due to the Metro works going on, traffic flows smoothly on the Tumkur Road stretch," he says.
Industrial activity
Peenya and Tumkur Road were always known to be transport and warehousing centres with large consignments of cargo coming into the city from other States. As per data from the Department of Commercial Taxes, Government of Karnataka, 27,261 tons of auto and auto ancillary products entered Bangalore in a period of one month - November 2009 - through the check post at Tumkur Road.
Several large retail and FMCG players have set up their logistics hubs in and around the city. Of these, two warehouses of 30,000 sqft each at Nelamangala cater to food and consumer durables, and electronics respectively.
The State government is acquiring 200 acres of land at Nelamangala to develop the Greater Peenya Industrial Estate which would cater to the land requirements of about 300 industrial units within its campus. A number of logistics units have set up base here. A logistics park has been proposed at Devanahalli by the State Infrastructure Development Department (IDD) and the Karnataka State Industrial Investment and Development Corporation Ltd (KSIIDC) on a public-private partnership (PPP) basis. A logistics park is a special area that has warehouses, including a cold chain for perishables and an area earmarked for automobiles and containers.
According to the Draft Prefeasibility Report on Development of Logistics Park by the IDD, some of the key sectors which are driving the demand for logistics in Bangalore include auto and auto ancillaries, textiles and garments, agro-based and food processing, floriculture, electronics and engineering.
"The logistics park and the cold storage facilities in Nelamangala and along the road to the airport are creating immense potential for mass housing in the surrounding areas," points out Zahed Mohammed, Director, Silverline Realty.
Emerging residential belts
Several new areas that were once only known as the distant suburbs and industrial hubs are now experiencing a transformation in their topography. Places like Jalahalli, Nelamangala, Dasarahalli, Madanayakanahalli, and Nagasandra are finding a spurt in residential development due to these industrial units. "There is potential for townships and mass housing units around Jalahalli and Nelamangala," says Zahed. "The emerging logistics park and cargo facilities near the airport are bound to create vast employment and hence fuel a need for budget residential solutions nearby," he adds.
QUICK BYTES
THE TUMKUR ROAD ELEVATED STRETCH HAS REDUCED TRAVEL TIME BETWEEN NELAMANGALA AND THE ORR JUNCTION TO ABOUT 15 MINUTES
THE DEVELOPMENT ALONG THE STRETCH TO NELAMANGALA IS LEADING TO POTENTIAL FOR HOUSING IN THE VICINITY

Elevated road eases traffic congestion

Motorists can now reach Nelamangala within 30 minutes

The signal timing cycle is now 150 seconds

SEAMLESS CONNECTIVITY:The 4.5-km stretch of elevated road has made it easy for motorists on

BANGALORE: The 4.5-km elevated road opened for traffic between Goraguntepalya and Chikkabidarakallu on the busy National Highway 4 (Tumkur Road) appears to have eased the woes of the motorists using this stretch of the road.

Not only has the bustling traffic on the ground below receded, the journey hours between CMTI Junction (after Goraguntepalya) and Nelamangala has come down for the motorists after the elevated road was thrown open for traffic last month.

“It used to take about one hour to reach Nelamangala before the road widening and elevated road work were taken up. Now I can reach Nelamangala within 30 minutes,” said Ram Prakash, a resident of Rajajinagar, who regularly travels by his car on this stretch.

The elevated road has come as a boon for truckers and long distance buses too. “After crossing Goraguntepalya, I can reach Nelamangala within 35 to 45 minutes thanks to the elevated road,” said M. Prakash, a tourist bus driver. He added that he used to take at least one-and-a-half hour before the construction work started for the same distance.

Below the elevated road, traffic volumes on the surface road have come down perceptibly, Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic and Security) Praveen Sood said.

Mr. Sood told The Hindu that the reduction in traffic volume was so much that the traffic police were able to reduce the timing cycle at four signals on this stretch. “Earlier, the timing cycle was kept at 200 seconds at SRS Junction, Peenya Junction, Jalahalli Circle and Hessarghatta Cross. The timing cycle has now been brought down to 150 seconds,” he noted.

He said that over 70,000 vehicles make use of the elevated road every day. Of these about 50 per cent are heavy and medium vehicles, comprising trucks, long distance buses and other goods vehicles which do not intend to ply through Jalahalli Circle. Even motorcycles are allowed on this stretch, he added. While the elevated highway on Hosur Road caters to light motor vehicles, the Tumkur Road elevated road will cater to heavy vehicles, by the sheer nature of areas surrounding these roads, Mr. Sood said.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic – West) Panduranga H. Rane said that his personnel are a relieved lot after the commissioning of the elevated road. Let alone piling up of traffic, even scenes of dense vehicular movement on the road below has become rare, he noted.

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) took up this project on public-private partnership. The work was executed by Navayuga Construction Company on build, operate and transfer (BOT) basis. On an average, the stretch witnessed movement of about 1.3 lakh vehicles daily.

KSRTC buses use only the surface and not the elevated portion. When i travelled on a KSRTC Airavat late last month, it went under the flyover and entered the expressway only from the surface portion.

Oh... didnt observe that. Thats good in a way. Buses on the 2 lane elevated road would block/slow down the faster moving vehicles.
