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..

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)

OldNews:Land acquisition for Outer Ring Road nears completion

http://www.thehindu.com/2007/08/25/s...2560750300.htm
Quote:
CHENNAI: Land acquisition for the Outer Ring Road (ORR) project between Old Mahabalipuram Road and the Tiruvottiyur Ponneri Panjetty (TPP) Road is nearing completion.

The acquisition for the nearly 62-kilometre long project, connecting NH-45 at Vandalur and NH-4 at Nazarathpet, was undertaken in two stages. In the first stage, a distance of 29.5 kilometres between NH-45 and Chennai Tiruvallur High (CTH) Road, the acquisition was completed in early 2005.

With the Government according administrative sanction for the second phase between the CTH Road and TPP Road, land acquisition is under way and is scheduled for completion by the end of this year.

The six-lane ORR will include a provision for 22-metre-wide corridor for public transport. Land on either side of the project has been earmarked for either road widening or commercial exploitation.

The project cost, estimated at Rs.500 crore two years ago, has now been put at Rs. 850 crore.

BOT basis

The Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority proposed the ORR, along the outer edges of the Chennai Metropolitan Area, to help relieve traffic congestion and enable dispersal of urban growth. The ORR is to be executed on a Build, Operate and Transfer basis.

The Highways Department had proposed the ORR under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission and the project was included in the City Development Plan for Chennai submitted to the Centre for approval.

OldNews:Two-phase outer ring road plan

http://www.hindu.com/2008/04/29/stor...2959060200.htm
Quote:
CHENNAI: An outer ring road will be built on the city outskirts to reduce traffic congestion on the existing roads. The project will be taken up in two phases.

Highways Minister M.P.Saminathan said the road would start from Vandalur in NH 45 and go up to Minjur, through Tiruvottiyur – Ponneri – Panchetty for a length of 62 km linking Bangalore, Tirupati, and Calcutta roads.

Land acquisition has been completed for a length of 34 km. The project is to be taken up under public-private partnership mode in the first phase from Vandalur to Nemilicheri, the Minister said while presenting the demand of his Ministry in the Assembly on Monday.

According to Mr.Saminathan, the Chennai Bypass from Tambaram to Maduravoyal would be converted to four lane from two lane carriageway and a new bypass from Maduravoyal to Puzhal had been taken up for a length of 13 km by National Highways Authority of India at a cost of Rs.405 crore. NHAI was taking action to complete the works during the current year.

Under the Chennai Metropolitan Development Plan, the State had sanctioned 11 works consisting of 6 grade separators, one ROB and 4 river bridges at a cost of Rs 219 crore.

Of these, grade separator at the junction of Marmalong Bridge-Irumbuliyur Road and Pallavaram-Thoraipakkam Road near Pallikaranai was under execution. The government has decided to widen the Rajiv Gandhi Salai (IT Corridor) from Siruseri to Mamallapuram. A sum of Rs.70 crore had been sanctioned for acquiring land required for the project. Once the land acquisition was completed, the work would be taken up.

Widening of ECR


A feasibility study would be done through Tamilnadu Road Development Company for widening the East Coast Road from Chennai to Puducherry in view of the heavy traffic. After the receipt of the feasibility report, which would also take into consideration environmental impact, further action would be taken up, he added.

Good plan.

As per the map from Wikipedia, the ORR goes from Vandalur(in Beach-Chengalpattu line) to Minjur(in Central-Gumidipundi line) via Ponnamalle Thiruniravur (in Central-Arrakonam line).

In long term if a railway line is constructed along ORR from Vandalur to Minjur via Thiruninravur, this will be an excellent suburban corridor for Chennai Metropolitan.

But regarding ORR, Chennai bye-pass and IRR,

Why it was not considered from ECR?

ECR-ECR Link Road-Sholinganallur-Medavakkam-East Tambaram road should be part of Chennai bye-pass instead of Radial road.

ECR-Kelambakkam-Vandalur road should be inclunded along with ORR.

I believe SRP tools-Velacherry-Adambakkam-St.Thomas mount road is the part of IRR.

This will cover from south coastal instead from NH 45.

This will help in developing the south Chennai Metropolitan areas line Thiruvanmiyur, Neelangarai, Pallavakkam, Sholinganallur, Perugudi, Thoraipakkam, Pallikaranai, Siruseri, Navallur, Semmanacherri, Padur, Kelambakkam etc.,

Inner Ring Road southern extension taking shape



R. Srikanth



The five-km road will link Velachery Main Road with GST Road



CHENNAI: Work on the southern arm of Inner Ring Road (IRR), to link two crucial arterial roads in south Chennai through some of the fast developing localities around Velachery and Nanganallur, is progressing in full swing.

The State Highways Department, the implementing agency, has initiated the road development work simultaneously from both ends — near the Velachery MRTS station (Velachery Main Road) and Grand Southern Trunk Road.

The five-kilometre project involves creating a four-lane road each on both sides of the proposed MRTS network from Velachery to St. Thomas Mount stations. After some distance, the road will be a single three-lane corridor. On completion, the Rs.95-crore project is expected to reduce travel time for residents of many of the localities and congestion on the two busy roads.

Out of the total cost, a little over Rs.60 crore is towards land acquisition and the rest for project, including laying the road and creating associated facilities such as culverts. While the road is scheduled to be opened by early 2009, the black-topping will be completed by the first quarter, says an official.

Detailing the project, he says the IRR arm from Velachery Main Road will have two 30-feet (four lane) roads below the flyover, near the MRTS station. Two bridges, with an elevated track for MRTS between them, are to be constructed over the Adambakkam lake.

The MRTS elevated network will be above the bridge. Metropolitan Transport Project, which is executing the MRTS work, has started pile foundation work for the elevated tracks. A railway official says two railway stations - Puzhuthivakkam and Adambakkam – will come up between Velachery and St. Thomas Mount.

On the Velachery side, the department is constructing two culverts to facilitate free flow of water from one side of Pallikaranai swamp to the other. A ‘kuccha’ road has been laid below the Velachery flyover on both sides of Velachery Main Road till Balaji Nagar Main Road. On GST Road end, work to link the IRR arm with the Thillai Ganga Nagar subway is in progress. About 40 per cent of the road work has been completed. Land acquisition too is over, except for 700 metres near Vanuvampet. A total of 65 houses, comprising both buildings and thatched huts have to be acquired for the project, the highways official says.

Construction of four culverts between Balaji Nagar Main Road in Ullagaram-Puzhuthivakkam and the Velachery Station are part of the project for channelling rainwater from Veerangal Odai and Velachery Canal to the southern side of the Pallikaranai swamp. A temporary canal has been created on both sides of the ‘kuccha’ road to channel the rainwater to the Pallikaranai swamp and prevent flooding of nearby residential colonies. There is also a proposal to construct a permanent canal on both sides of the road and subsequently increase width of the road.
