Local admn fails DMRC as chaos reigns on Kochi roads

I believe all the preparatory projects was awarded to DMRC.
Quote:
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) might be pulling out all stops to complete the prestigious project on time. But the Kochi corporation, district administration and related agencies are pulling the other way and have failed to complete the preparatory work to enable the work on Metro's 24-km viaduct which has begun on three of the four reaches.

This has not only slowed down work, it has added to the woes of ordinary citizens and increased chaos on city roads. Though the widening of MG Road was announced as part of preparatory work, the public works department (PWD) has failed to do the job, frustrating DMRC which has speeded up construction on the stretch between Edappally to MG Road. It has also started test piling on Sahodharan Ayyappan Road.

At a meeting convened by the district collector, the Ernakulam District Residents Association Apex Council (EDRAAC) had put forward the demand to complete the widening of Thammanam-Pullepady road prior to the commencement of work on MG Road. This would have helped the city police to reroute traffic through side roads and regulate traffic better. The association also wanted authorities to widen the road linking Rajaji Road to KSRTC bus depot and A L Jacob railway overbridge (ROB).

The Roads and Bridges Corporation, Kerala (RBDC-K), was also asked to complete the Ponnurunni ROB, which would enable traffic on the Palarivatttom-Vyttila stretch and reduce the movement of traffic through the busy Palarivattom-Kaloor stretch.

In spite of assurances on relaying footpaths and reconstructing drains, neither the Kochi corporation or PWD have taken up the job. When contacted, PWD stated that it would soon start work to widen the MG Road. Executive engineer P P Benny said the district collector would hold a meeting of various departments to finalise the plan. Regarding the reconstruction of drains along the Metro stretch, he said that DMRC has agreed to do a sample work. "If that's feasible, PWD will opt for DMRC's plan," he added.

Even though DMRC had tried to identify utility lines such as electric, telephone cables, water and oil pipelines before starting the piling work, concerned agencies failed to provide related maps and sketches.

"Sometimes, we were not able to locate them before the work. This is mainly because agencies such as the Kerala water authority has been unable to provide drawings and sketches of water pipeline networks in the city," said a Metro official. He also asked the water authority to shift pipelines on SA Road to facilitate construction work.

On Saturday, mayor Tony Chammany has decided to convene a meeting of political parties, traders, merchants and officials of various government departments to discuss issues faced by citizens.

Phase 2 of Seaport-Airport road gathers steam

Work on 14-km road between HMT and Nedumbassery estimated to cost over Rs.660 crore; land acquisition to cost Rs.400 crore


Laying the ground:Piling is about to begin on Aluvathuruthu
where a bridge will be built over the Thoombathodu for phase
two of the Seaport-Airport Road.— Photo: H. Vibhu


Work on the second phase of the Seaport-Airport road is gathering steam, with the rains receding and the contract being already awarded for Section B that falls between Mahilalayam and Chowara.
The road will be extended up to the airport in phase two.
Site clearance work is nearing completion and piling is about to begin on Aluvathuruthu, a riverine island near Aluva, from where a bridge will be built over Thoombathodu, a branch of the Periyar. The bridge on the island will be one of the two over the Periyar and will form a major part of the extended Seaport-Airport Road between HMT Road and Nedumbasserry.
The piling work had been delayed by heavy rains in June and July and reports that the Idukki dam might be opened as the water level reached 98 per cent of the storage capacity in late September. However, with the threat of rain abating, work is expected to gather pace.
Approximately 14 km between HMT and Nedumbassery form the second phase of the Seaport-Airport Road. The stretch has been divided into three sections.
Section A lies between Kalamassery and Mahilalayam on the Aluva-Perumbavoor Road; Section B is between Mahilalayam and Chowara on the Aluva-Kalady Road and Section C is between Chowara and the Cochin International Airport.
Section A has again been sub-divided into three reaches to help launch the work. Work on the reach between Kalamassery and NAD has taken off with the land acquisition notification being already issued.
Government has sanctioned Rs. 97 crore for acquisition of around 30 acres for the four-lane road. The other reaches under Section A are NAD-Ashokapuram and Ashokapuram-Mahilalayam.
The second phase of the road work is estimated to cost over Rs. 660 crore of which about Rs. 400 crore will go into land acquisition.
Four-laning
The government has given administrative sanction for the release of Rs. 25 crore for beginning four-laning work between Irumbanam and HMT Road, which formed the first phase of the Seaport-Airport Road project.
Tender for the section between HMT Road and Bharat Mata College has been awarded and survey works are in progress.
The work may suffer a little delay on account of the presence of a large number of crucial pipelines that runs along the Seaport-Airport Road.
These include a water pipeline to BPCL’s Kochi Refinery and the oil company’s aviation turbine fuel line.
Roads and Bridges Development Corporation of Kerala (RBDCK) which is executing the work, is learnt to have submitted a proposal for Rs. 212 crore for completion of the four-laning work.

Metro realignment plans at south RoB in a mess
Quote:
The chances for the reconstruction of the Ernakulam South Rail Overbridge (ROB) as a preparatory work of the Kochi Metro Rail are bleak as the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), the implementing agency of the project, is yet to receive the official communication in this regard. Though the demand for widening the South ROB has been under discussion for some time, the authorities concerned have not taken any step to take the project forward so far. Sources with the DMRC also brushed aside the plan for the realignment of Metro Rail at South ROB, which has further diminished the chances of the reconstruction of the bridge.

“So far, the DMRC has no plans of reconstructing the bridge. Our first priority is the completion of Kochi Metro Rail within the scheduled time,” sources said. Regarding the realignment of South ROB, the DMRC has no plans to deviate from the actual plan.

However, while constructing the viaducts at the landing portions of the South ROB at Manorama junction, nearly 2.5 metres of the road will not be of any use for traffic. So the landing portion will be widened.

“An additional three metre width will be provided on both the landing stretches of the bridge so as to avoid any traffic bottleneck. However, the portion at centre of the ROB will be untouched,” sources said.

Meanwhile,the Corporation authorities and experts are of the opinion that this is the right time to commence the reconstruction of the South ROB, as it will be difficult to carry out the work once the Kochi Metro Rail is commissioned.

After the viaducts of the Kochi Metro are constructed, it will be difficult to demolish and reconstruct the bridge, since the viaducts at Manorama junction would be constructed close to the bridge.

Meanwhile, the Corporation authorities are supporting a realignment plan for the Kochi Metro at South ROB to help in reconstruction of the bridge and to prevent land acquisition at the northern side of the ROB.

As per the plan, the Metro Rail track will cross the Ernakulam South Railway station to reach the ROB from Karshaka Road.

There are several buildings at the northern side of the ROB, of which many are commercial establishments. Since the pillars are to be erected from under the bridge, the Ernakulam South ROB needs to be widened and reconstructed. But the reconstruction of the bridge has not been included in the preparatory work of the project.

Meanwhile, experts said that if not through KMRL and DMRC, the work of the bridge can be handed over to agencies like Kerala Road Fund Board or Kerala Roads and Bridges Development Corporation.

He might realized without widening, DMRC will demolish all the multi storied commercial properties inbetween Karshaka road-Manorama Junction, which includes even a property belong to his relative too... Definitely the business lobby might pressurized the Mayor to push for reconstruction of South ROB on North ROB model, than facing demolition threat

We don't have much time to decide on the new alignment since the piling works has set off. I hope the authorities and concerned departments work in coordination so that the city and it's people get the benefit. It is no rocket science that no development of the bridge is possible after Kochi Metro works is completed. It was sad to see our respectful mayor opposing the development earlier when DMRC was pushing for it.

Corporation to seek state aid for south ROB reconstruction

Though the final decision on the reconstruction of South Rail Overbridge (ROB) is yet to be taken, the huge cost for land acquisition and construction is likely to be a major hurdle for the key projects that will boost the infrastructure facilities of the city. At the meeting convened by Kochi Mayor Tony Chammany the other day, Managing Director, Kochi Metro Rail Ltd, Elias George said that a total of `100 crore is required for widening the South ROB. With the KMRL already completing the funding procedures for Kochi Metro and related projects, the state government will have to allot additional funds for the ROB reconstruction. The project is not included in the list of Kochi Metro Rail-related projects and now it will have to be included in the next next annual Budget. If the budget allocation is made, the project can commence by next year. But it will take nearly 18 months to complete if it is carried out by an agency like Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. With the DMRC making it clear that its first priority is to keep the Kochi Metro Rail deadline, whether they will undertake the project or not is a question. The DMRC will have to complete the work of the Edappally Flyover too,” experts said.

They said it would become difficult to widen the bridge once the Metro rail line is built through its northern side. As per the alignment, the pillars of the Metro Rail will pass by the side of South RoB, unlike at the North bridge where they pass through the centre. Besides, it will not be easy for the authorities to reconstruct the South ROB as the number of high-rises around it exceed that of Ernakulam North ROB.

The Kochi Corporation will also have to seek financial support from the state for other major infrastructure projects such as the widening of Vyttila-Tripunithura Petta road for which procedures for land acquisition have begun. A total of Rs 120 crore is required for the widening of the Vyttila-Petta Road while another `30 crore is needed for its construction.

Another road that needs to be developed is the Thammanam-Pulleppady Road, the widening of which requires Rs 15 crore while Rs 390 crore is needed for land acquisition.

However, the Kochi Corporation authorities have decided to seek the help of the state government. Mayor Tony Chammany said that the suggestions and recommendations made at the meeting will be submitted before the government soon.

Now the picture is very clear. Chammani and UDF wanted to take out from the scope of DMRC the reconstruction work of south over bridge so that they can put their hand in “CHAKKARAKKUDAM”. Otherwise how come our honorable Mayor realized the importance of reconstruction of this ROB very late?

Now they will play another drama, they will start pleading DMRC to construct this ROB and Sheela Dixit and Krishana will reject it saying they are too much busy and they cannot undertake any more work and with great “pain” our Government will finally undertake construction of ROB.

You said it. That was the real intention behind this drama.
Tony kuttan knows how to play the drama well.

If this has been included in the metro preparatory works, this would have materialzed by now. Now am sure 100 % that DMRC cant hold this work load, which was never in thier plan. Ini manathekku nokki irikane pattulallu Mr Chammany.!! Endengilum nakkan anengil Atlantis flyover ninnum ayikkode...

After that the usual script will follow, extension and revisions and extensions and revisions. South ROB will remain as a diabetic wound that doesnt heal.

5-cent land acquired for widening of stadium road


Quote:
KOCHI: After 13 years, the Kochi corporation has finally managed to acquire five cents of land for widening the Stadium Link Road, which connects the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium with Thammanam-Pullepady Road.

Though the work on the road started in 2000, the civic body failed to acquire five cents, which was a major bottleneck, posing a serious threat to lives of motorists, on the stretch for over 13 years from Deenu Vincent, the owner of the land.

Despite repeated offers from the civic body, she refused to handover the land and approached Ernakulam judicial magistrate court instead. The court directed both parties to reach a settlement on the issue.

Based on the agreement, corporation has agreed to hand over 4.6 cents of land near Pipeline Road to Deenu.

Once the road is widened, the entire stretch of the 2.5-km long road will have a width of 22 metres. "It will act as a parallel road to Palarivattom-Thammanam Road and Kaloor-Kathrikkadavu Road. Whenever matches or exhibitions are held in the stadium, vehicles can be diverted through this road," said T J Vinod, development committee, Kochi corporation.

He added that people from southern parts of the city can reach the stadium without touching Kaloor and Palarivattom. The road was developed at a cost of Rs 1.87 crore using funds from private parties, including real estate companies and residents of nearby areas. The fund for the development of the road was raised by a committee headed by Babu Moopan.

According to the corporation, more than 95% of the land required for the road was given free by land owners.

NHAI attempt to take over NH 17 in Kochi thwarted
Quote:

PWD says the NHAI cannot claim ownership of NH 17 that passes through Kerala as it has not spent a penny for its construction or upkeep. A view of the Varapuzha Toll Booth.

Agency’s move to steeply hike toll rates on Varapuzha bridge falls flat

The proposal by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to take over NH 17 and to steeply hike toll rates from Tuesday has fallen flat, following the intervention of the State Public Works Department (PWD).

Commuters along the Varapuzha bridge on NH 17 were particularly shocked as the NHAI announced all of a sudden that toll rates for the bridge would be increased by over 600 per cent. The PWD’s intervention has resulted in motorists having to pay the prevailing toll rates.

PWD Secretary T.O. Sooraj said that the NHAI cannot claim ownership of NH 17 that passes through Kerala since it has not spent a penny for its construction or upkeep. “The stretch is being maintained (by PWD-NH wing) using funds of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways and we asked officials of the ministry to retain the road’s ownership.”

As per the NHAI’s proposal, cars would have to pay Rs. 25 instead of the current Rs 5 for single trip, with a proportionate increase for other vehicles. The proposal that was kept secret all along was seen as an indirect way of imposing toll over the Edappally bridge, by clubbing the construction cost of the two bridges.

A PWD-NH wing official said that the NHAI maintains only four-lane roads, whereas many parts of NH 17 do not even have two-lane width. “NHAI is unwilling to widen the stretch or to take over the upkeep of the potholed highway. It is focused only on toll collection, whether it is justified or not. The political leadership must step in to thwart such take-overs.”

Hashim Chendampilly, convenor of NH Samara Samithi, a conclave of organisations opposing NHAI imposing hefty toll on motorists, welcomed the PWD’s decision to prevent the NHAI from taking over NH 17. He demanded stoppage of toll collection on the Varapuzha bridge since toll for three other bridges on the Edappally-Kuttipuram stretch was withdrawn following mass protests.

“We will soon begin a protest campaign against toll over the bridge. Toll collection is not justified since Government agencies recovered the construction cost of bridges from toll many years ago. The State’s vehicle population is increasing by 12 per cent each year and this has kept the cash register ringing for toll contractors.”

Mr. Hashim blamed the NHAI for collecting hefty toll and for trying to frequently increase toll collection over the Edappally-Mannuthy stretch on NH 47. “NHAI has failed to ready service roads and allied infrastructure that are a pre-requisite for toll collection. Steps must be taken to decongest junctions along the NH since it takes over two hours to cover the Edappally-Thrissur stretch.”

KOCHI: The public works department (PWD) has begun the land levelling work near the Edappally bridge as part of the preparatory works for the construction of Edappally flyover. The three-month preparatory work will also include the construction of two service roads and new bridges on either side of the existing Edappally canal bridge.

According to P A Hashim, the nodal officer for flyover projects, the piling for the flyover will begin after the completion of preparatory works. "We plan to re-route traffic through the service roads and new bridges to facilitate the construction of the flyover on the national highway," he said. The service roads on either side of the bridge over Edappally canal on the national highway will have a width of 7.5 meters. They will be 25 meters long.

The state government and the Kochi Metro Rail Ltd (KMRL) have inked the Rs 108-crore Edappally flyover project with the PWD. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will execute the project, Hashim said. While KMRL will contribute Rs 30 crore, the Kerala Road Board Fund will provide Rs 50 crore and state government the remaining amount. The flyover project is expected to be completed in 18 months.

For the entire project, 175 cents of land will have to be acquired. Metro officials said that the land has not been handed over. "The urgency clause has been evoked and 4 (1) notification has been published to facilitate land acquisition. The construction work will gain momentum after the same," said a Metro official. According to sources, DMRC's contractor Larsen and Toubro (L&T), which has been awarded the contract for Metro viaduct between Aluva and Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, has been awarded construction works of Edappally flyover as well as preparatory works.

The PWD department has begun land levelling works at near Edappally bridge as part of preparatory works to be undertaken for construction of the Edappally flyover. The road authority expects to complete the construction of two service roads and new bridges on either side of the existing bridge within three months.

P A Hashim nodal officer for flyovers in Kochi said that piling works for constructing Edappaly flyover would begin after completing preparatory works. "The plan is to reroute traffic through the service roads and new bridges to facilitate construction works of flyover on the national highway," he said. The service roads on either side of the national highway will have a width of 7.5 meters. The new bridges that will come up on both sides of existing bridge will have a length of 25 meters and will be 7.5 meter wide.

The state government and Kochi Metro Rail Ltd (KMRL) inked the Rs 108-crore Edappally flyover project with the public works department (PWD). The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will implement the work. "The preparatory works are also part of the project," added Hashim. KMRL contributes Rs 30 crore, the Kerala Road Board Fund provides Rs 50 crore and the state government will chip in the remaining amount. The flyover project is expected to be completed in 18 months.

The entire project requires acquisition of 175 cents of land. Meanwhile, officials with Kochi Metro said they are yet to be handed over the land. "The urgency clause has been evoked and 4 (1) notification has been published to facilitate acquisition. The construction activities will be in full-swing when the land acquisition is completed," said a metro official.

It is also stated that DMRC's contractor Larsen and Toubro (L&T) which has been awarded the contract for constructing Kochi metro's viaduct between Aluva and Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium has been awarded construction of Edappally flyover as well as its preparatory works.
