Nehru assures J.K. Nagar residents on land acquisition -Airport Expansion

Transport Minister K.N. Nehru has assured residents of J.K. Nagar and nearby colonies that all efforts would be made to ensure that the proposed land acquisition for the Tiruchi airport did not cause heavy displacement of people.

The Airports Authority of India has proposed to extend the runway to 12,500 feet from 8,000 feet, which would require the diversion of the highway and the acquisition of a large area of land.
The Minister told the residents that efforts would be made to acquire lands on the eastern side, behind the airport, to ensure that there was minimum displacement on the west. Even in case of some displacement, adequate compensation and alterative house sites would be provided to families whose lands are to be taken over, he said.

Construction of new bridge enters crucial phase

Construction of a new bridge across the Coleroon river on the Tiruchi-Padalur section of the four-lane Tiruchi-Chennai National Highway has entered a crucial phase with work on erecting massive concrete girders atop the piers commencing on Friday.

The new 900-metre-long bridge across the Coleroon river, with 27 spans, is coming up adjacent to the bridge on the Tiruchi-Chennai Bypass Road on the outskirts of the city. The Tiruchi-Padalur section, running about 38.5 km will have 22 bridges, including three major ones across the Coleroon, Cauvery and Upparu rivers.

The bridges have been redesigned to accommodate four-lane traffic, on the direction of the Union Minister of Shipping, Road Transport and Highways T.R.Baalu to provide for further expansion into six-lane highway.

The 600-metre-long new bridge across the Cauvery will have 14 piers and fabrication of the girders for the bridge is under way. Work on 10 other bridges was in full swing. Construction of a grade separator (fly-over) at Ariyamangalam has been held up due to the delay in the shifting of the underground water mains by the Tiruchi Corporation.

Tiruchi airport new terminal to be ready by March 2009


Construction of the new terminal for the Tiruchi airport is underway in full swing and the steel and glass structure is expected to be ready for commissioning by March 2009.

The terminal, coming up adjacent to the existing one, will have a total floor space of 11,800 sq.m in the ground-plus-one building. The terminal with a capacity to handle about 400 passengers at a time will have two aerobridges (with glass tunnels instead of the usual closed ones), three escalators and five lifts. As there would be seven aircraft parking bays, provision has been made for erection of a third aerobridge.

The ground floor would feature a landscaped and open-to-sky central concourse, check-in area, two security holds, restaurants, VIP lounges, customs and immigration desks. A City-side canopy, lawns and about 300 car parking bays would make for the façade of the terminal, which has been constructed on an elevated plane to give it better visibility from the Tiruchi-Pudukottai Highway. Columns would be unobtrusive – with an average spacing of about 13 m two columns.

Investment


The Airports Authority of India (AAI) is investing about Rs 70 crore for the new terminal. “Nearly 85 per cent of the civil works of the structure has been completed. The terminal would be commissioned by the end of this financial year. The main structure would be ready in another two months, though other allied works and interior decoration would take more time for completion,” Mr P.S.R.K. Sudhakar, General Manager (Projects), AAI, said. Construction began in June 2006.

A host of special and imported construction material such as ‘space frame and zip roofs,’ have been used in the building.

The terminal building will be energy efficient and include a ‘building management system,’ – centralised control of all amenities such as air-conditioning and lighting. A terminal building will have a separate power sub-station, Airport Director, Mr S. Sreekumar, said.

Mr K. Shivakumar, Deputy General Manager (Air Traffic Control), indicated that the airport is likely to get a modern control tower with a glass house at the top.

Tiruchi is one of the non-metro airports being taken up for further development and expansion.

The City would have a truly world class airport within the next couple of years, observed Mr Sreekumar.

Whether like it or not, Trichy will certainly be the next Chennai in the not too distant future, no matter what and who the rulers might be.

Hence, you may start being jealous with immediate effect!

Long Live Trichy. Long Live Tamilian.

We are too tired of reading your repeated contravercial post with comparing our neibour cities...

have you visited any other places than Trichy...I don't think so...

I believe that you are not in india, might be in Singapore...

If you are not in India, Pls come and visit all other cities including CBE, Cochin, Vizag, Mangalore and so on.... Trichy is not at all comparable to any other upcoming cities like I mentioned here...

Pls don't behave like child... Nobody is intereted to read your comments including our fellow trichians....pls do review all your post..Nothing but Zero...(In contribution)...Don't repeat the same again and again like " thenji poona record mathri"

Be optimistic about our Trichy.. But don't under estimate other cities...

I do hope that the same way of comments never repeated...

Hence, the above could be one or part of the reasons in hiking the price of land at Trichy IT Park.
Absolutely,Trichy is one among the vibrant location that has distinct advantages for IT/ITES operations.But lets see how ELCOT works out a plan for Trichy IT park.

FYI, I'm in Trichy and residing in Trichy and nowhere else. Perhaps, you might be in overseas or somewhere else deep in the jungle!

Thus, stop being childish and naive.

As far as I'm concern, people like you, just like many others here, are of anti-Trichy, with which, basically being JEALOUS over the growth and development of Trichy.

So, stop commenting with immediate effect, and start concentrating on your own work schedule.

We all know about your great heart with Jealous. When Silkair declared that they are connecting SGP with CBE, in one of the website I saw your broadminded thoughts. And we have seen one of your famous statements stating that Trichy will over take Chennai. Please argue using your brain not heart.

http://tiruchian.wordpress.com/2007/...om-coimbatore/

We are not jealous of Trichy or any other cities, please see the fact/reality in your statements. Corporates will not come to invest by just seeing a big (loss making) airport, there are various other factors. (example Trivandrum, Calicut)

FYI

Please see ELCOT MD's words, I couldn't see any word Trichy in his statement. CTS, Perot, TCS, Bosch etc.. already ensured their presence in CBE.

Coimbatore most favoured after Chennai

http://www.thehindu.com/2008/01/17/s...1759231200.htm

Coimbatore is the most favoured IT destination after Chennai and has the potential to earn $1.5 billion, according to C. Umashankar, Managing Director, Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu (ELCOT).

Software Exports in 2006-07

http://www.chennaibest.com/Articles/TNs%20software.asp

The state clocked export revenues of Rs 20,701.70 crore last year, against Rs 14,115 crore in 2005-2006, surpassing industry expectations, and on the back of expansion by top-tier software and BPO companies. This is against a national growth of 32.6%, as projected by Nasscom Strategic Review 2007.

In the state, Chennai remained the top contributor to exports, even as it continued to attract much of the software investments. Last year, Chennai contributed Rs 19,867.31 crore, Coimbatore Rs 179.10 crore and Trichy Rs 24.55 crore. Meanwhile, Pondicherry’s exports grew 51.42% to Rs 43.58 crore last year, from Rs 28.78 crore in 2005-06. Application software and system software accounted for Rs 14,077 crore or 68% of the total exports, while IT-enabled services accounted for Rs 3,519.28 crore or 17% of the total.

Looks like Minister's visit confirms that govt is planing to take over some lands opp. to the airport and also close the Trichy-Pudukottai highway.
Last time, he did a good job by providing alternative sites(Guntur) in couple of days to the people who where displaced at TVS tollgate(Subramaniyapuram) due to 4 laning of Trichy-Madurai highway. Hope lets expect something from him this time around too.

Land acquisition for Perambalur SEZ to be completed by this month.

Acquisition of land for the proposed Special Economic Zone in neighbouring Perambalur would be completed before this month end, Union Communication and Information Technology Minister A Raja has said.

Already about 2,450 acres of land had been acquired and the reigstration process was over. Another 550 acres would be acquired before the month end, he told reporters at Peramablur yesterday.

The multi-product SEZ, a joint venture of GVK Infratech Pv Ltd and state-government owned TIDCO, would have units in engineering goods, power equipment, pharmaceuticals, chemical, petrochemicals, electronics and communcation, IT/ITES, textiles and leather.

The Board of Approval of the Union Ministry of Commerce had already given the in-principle clearance for the project and the final approval would be accorded before July.

On a rough estimate the SEZ would attract an investment of Rs 5,000 crore to be spread across in the next 7-8 years, Raja said expressing hope that the final approval from other agencies would also be obtained shortly.

Anti-Trichy sentiment has started gaining momentum?

As expected, it's rather clear that more and more anti-Trichy sentiment has started gaining momentum, and expect more to join in the fray, which is indeed a good sign for the long term benefits of Trichy.

Though, whatever condemnation, Trichy will not fear and falter, but at the sametime, this could very well serve as a blessing in disguise, in proving Trichy potentials in the long term overall growth. Another word, Trichy has just started awakening from the days of being a "sleeping giant" for all these years.

Hence, start being realised on the Trichy growth potentials yourself in a couple of years time. Till then, relax and be patient to witness.

Airlines head South to benefit from better infra

Even as infrastructure constraints deter the growth of air travel across the country, the southern states are attracting new flights.

Out of around 50 daily flights added in this year’s summer schedule, which came into effect on April 1, more than 30 emanate from cities in the South, including Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Trichy, Coimbatore and Vizag.

Six out of seven additional flights of Air India will be operated to and from the South.

http://www.business-standard.com/com...&autono=319267


So, we would expect flights to Abudabi and Malasia in coming months from air India

I was just checking the AAI website to see the contract awarded details. I noticed that the contract for Trichy new terminal was awarded in May 2006. The contract was awarded to Consolidated Construction Consortium Ltd. They had bagged the contract for 41.4 crore Rs. Why all the news sources are stating that the terminal is being constructed at 70 crore Rs. Is it due to cost escalation ?.

Here is the source, http://www.airportsindia.org.in/publ...ils_maynew.pdf

I also noticed the same. I think AAI breaks the total value of the job and awards the civil to one party, Air-conditioning system to the supplier directly and so on. If U visit AAI tender section and check the tenders invited for trichy, U will find they have recently invited tender for chairs etc for an amount of RO 51.75 lacs, supply of fine arts for RS 8 lacs and so on. So the total terminal project could be RS 70 crores and civil and related section could be RS 41+ crores

Right, CCCL is doing civil constuction works that include steel and glass structures.Other accessories including areobridges,escalator,furnitures etc are done separately.So the total cost of the terminal building including the civil and accessories work is Rs 75cr.

Sorry for discussing out of topic, but just need a clarification.

So, does that mean B G Shirke Construction Technology Pvt Ltd who have bagged the Madurai terminal construction for 85 crore Rs, just includes civil side of the construction. So the total Madurai terminal project could be 150 crore Rs as reported in news sources, including aerobridges, furnitures, lifts etc. Is that so ?.

I think so. The total madurai terminal cost will be in the range of RS 125 to RS 150 Crores. AAI people sometime say 125 and sometime say 150. AAI will be calling for quotations for lifts, escalator etc separately in the coming months and we should be able to see that if we see the tender area in AAI on a regular basis. I wrote to b.g.shirke thrice asking them to provide with some interior design photos etc and no response till now

Introduction of additional flights hit due to shortage of CISF

Severe shortage of manpower in the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) unit at the Tiruchi Airport has been effectively holding up introduction of additional/new flights to the city, especially during nights.

With a strength of just 57 at the Tiruchi Airport, the central agency has been stretched to its limits given the increase in the number of flights to and from the city since last year.

According to sources, a survey has already been conducted and it has been assessed that the airport would require another 61 men so that the force could deploy its men in three shifts to provide security cover for the terminal building including baggage screening and patrolling of the airport complex during flight operations.

Given the manpower shortage in the CISF, the airport officials are reluctant to clear introduction of additional flights to and from Tiruchi, especially to the night schedules sought by airlines.

Air India which recently increased its frequency on the Chennai-Tiruchi-Thiruvanathapuram-Sharjah sector to make it a daily flight, has not been able to operate the flights via Tiruchi in the return direction on all seven days. The airline has been forced to operate the return flights (IC 968) via Tiruchi only on four days. On other three days, the flight is operated on the Sharjah-Thiruvanathapuram-Chennai sector, skipping Tiruchi. Air India Express is also said to be looking to operate to Abu Dhabi from here to a night schedule.

Some other airlines including Deccan and Air Asia are said to be interested in operating flights with evening/night schedules to Bangalore and Kuala Lumpur respectively.

Countrywide problem


Airport officials contend that the manpower shortage in CISF was a problem faced by the agency across the country. The CISF, they point out, has taken over the security of many new installations. The opening of new airports at Hyderabad and Bangalore has only added to the manpower constraint.

Airports Authority of India has already taken up the matter with the CISF top brass, who in turn have sought clearance from the Union Home Ministry for posting additional manpower at the Tiruchi Airport, the sources said.
