Why don't we make a roads/flyovers/expressways thread, and merge all the road project related threads into it? The current organization of threads is haphazard.

The tender document for appointing the consultant for the new high speed circular corridor project in Chennai is on the GoTN website. The document gives good details about the project, including the alignments, phasing etc and has a map (which was posted earlier on one of the threads). While the consultant has been charged with suggesting modifications to the alignment for improving geometry and feasibility, the rough plan is to have the following major aligmnments

1. Light House to Theosophical society along the Adyar estuary (3.3kms)
2. Theosophical Society to Ramapuram along the Adyar banks (11.8kms)
3. Mount-Poonamalee elevated corridor (from Ramapuram to Porur) (4.0kms)
4. Koyambedu Elevated Corridor (along IRR between the Adyar and Cooum rivers) (6.6kms)
5. Cooum/Buckingham Canal junction to Ennore along Buckingham Canal(17.5kms)
6. Cooum/Buckingham Canal junction to IT expressway along Buckingham Canal(10.7kms)
7. Nungambakkam to Saidapet along Mambalam Canal (joining corridor 2 above). (5.6kms)

The other two corridors that NHAI is already building and planning respectively are
1. Part-elevated Chennai Bypass (though an extension to Manali along IRR is not under construction currently but is indicated in this project) (42kms)
2. Elevated corridor along War Memorial to Maduravoyal along Cooum river (18.5kms)

The corridors that are along the river banks are proposed as two-tier elevated structures, while those along road medians are single-tier elevated structures.

Download the tender document to see full details (pg. 38 onwards)

how about the drainage issue in the elevated stretch in the Bypass ? I think it might become a problem if not tackled, especially when the elevated stretch in long.

Not really sure abt the drainage.
I believe that the bypass would be connected to the MTH road with ramps..When complete, i guess the travel time between Ambattur and Tambaram should be around 30-45 min.At present it takes a min of 2 hours..

is there any exit at cth/mth road at ambattur?

i remember reading that there were plans for more exits in the already finished first phase of this project (between maduravoyal & tambaram). i guess one would be at porur junction.

Yes there will be access from Ambattur Industrial estate ( in second phase) . There are 2 sets of ramps: One near Hindustan Photo Films ( for entry & exit to southern side) and one near the railway line at Pattravakkam (for entry and exit to northern side).

Not sure that they are planning any exits in the first phase - can you confirm the source of the info.

Old but Intersting News About IRR

Incomplete highway complete chill-out zone for S Chennai
Source:http://www.newindpress.com/NewsItems...ennai&Topic=0&

CHENNAI: FOR the residents of Puzhuthivakkam, and other adjoining areas in south Chennai, the yet to be fully built southern portion of the four-lane Inner Ring Road (IRR) has become a wonderland of sorts.

Work on completing the southern sector of the IRR - with provision for Mass Rapid Transit System in the middle - by linking Velachery with St Thomas Mount via Ullagaram and Adambakkam began last year.

It is expected to be over by the middle of next year. The four-lane highway lies adjacent to several residential localities of Puzhuthivakkam on the one side and Adambakkam on the other.

Up to two kilometres from Velachery, the road work is almost over on the one side but for blacktopping, residents have developed a liking precisely to this stretch.

Caressed by gentle breeze and rejuvenated by the all pervasive calm in the absence of traffic, people walk, jog to music, children play and many take driving lessons on bikes and cars. If private bus contractors find the space convenient to park their vehicles, youngsters turn the place into a makeshift stadium intermittently letting out screams of ‘six’ and ‘four’.

Come weekends, the sprawling expanse of land, now a highway, teems with people render it into a veritable entertainment joint.

There are not many parks in the neighbourhood of Puzhuthivakkam. The available ones are either too small. Against this background, the high-rise, mud levelled road is simply a boon here. On the flip side, after sunset, the place turns pitch dark.

Couples with dubious intention disappear into darkness and young people could be seen downing a peg or two inside cars parked on the roadside and some create nuisance. Police, when contacted, said they would step up patrol in the area.

Though people are happy that once completed, the IRR would soon make access to and from their neighbourhood a far easier task, they are downcast that they would lose a lovely place to walk.

S Arun (40), a resident of Puzhuthivakkam wanted the Highways Department to build pedestrian pathways flanking the IRR. M Saravanan (35), a resident of Adambakkam said people could walk to Velachery easily without getting caught in traffic snarls if pedestrian strips were provided.

I happened to see the detailed plans for the bypass at the time of launch of the project. It was also made clear at the time of launch - Check out http://www.blonnet.com/2005/01/31/st...3100691300.htm . Quote "The NH-205 (Chennai-Renigunta) will be connected by ramps to the elevated flyover, and eight underpasses along with service road will be provided for movement of local traffic." Only hope ideas have not changed over the last 3 years ( not likely though)

6 lanes roads are needed for Chennai city.
