Yes you are right that the elevated portion is from the railway like to the southern end of the estate. From there to Madhuravoyal it is on the surface (about 2.5 to 3 kms) except for one point where it goes over the Nolambur main road.

No idea about the status north of the Patravakkam railway line.

Happen to see the status of the end of the fly over yesterday while traveling on train. There was half way pillars and no sign of any work going on here.
I seriously doubt they will complete it in next 1.5 years.

Arul! I remember seeing similar (or the same) photo posted in one of our threads some 4 or 5 months back. Not sure. Or, are they starting only now? No idea about the current status of this project.

Not sure.. But Circular Corridors were proposed mainly for BRTS. Guess this must be different from that. Someone please clarify it!

Finally, Got the source!

Multi-crore infrastructure plan
3 Sep 2008, 0547 hrs IST, M Gunasekaran, TNN

CHENNAI: The landscape of Chennai is all set for a metamorphosis. When the Rs

32,700 crore plan for the metro is completed as scheduled in 10
years, the city's
skyline will be dotted with elevated highways , rapid transit ways for buses, truck terminals, mono-rail , a dozen more flyovers and several rail over/under bridges and multi-level car parks to accommodate the needs of an ever-growing populace.

The grand plan places a major thrust on transportation to attract 70% of the travelling public to public transport systems. It also looks at improving infrastructure facilities beyond the Chennai metropolitan area. With hectic industrial activity in suburban Chennai, the plan provides for construction of a super ring road around the city covering the industrial hubs of Tiruporur, Tiruvallur, Sriperumbudur and Singaperumal Koil, a senior official said.

"If the Rs 32,700 crore plan is implemented by various agencies like highways, Chennai corporation , the various municipalities and other departments, city suburbs will get a fillip in infrastructure building and the gap between outer Chennai and the core city will be reduced significantly," he noted.

Elevated corridors form a vital part of the project with an allocation of Rs 13,000 crore. Besides a Rs 2,300 crore project for cleaning and beautifying the city's water ways, the committee suggested taking up new projects including elevated highways from Light House to Kottivakkam, Vadapalani to Porur, Toll Gate to Tiruvottiyur, Parrys Corner to Toll Gate, Chennai Port to Maduravoyal, freight corridor from Ennore Port to Thatchur, Ennore Port to Chennai Port, elevated highways along Beach Road (Kamarajar Salai), Rajaji Salai, IT corridor, Arcot Road, Aminjikarai to Sterling Road and Kathipara to Tambaram.

Mono-rail project covering Guindy Halda junction, Adyar, Mylapore , Royapettah and Dams Road junction at Rs 480 crore and Kalangaraivilakkam MRTS station to Perambur via Anna Flyover and Kilpauk at a cost of Rs 1,000 crore will also be taken up soon.

The committee recommended widening of 200-km bus route roads and 100 km roads inside Chennai city at a cost of Rs 300 crore from two lanes to four or six lanes besides widening the Nesapakkam Road, Choolaimedu high road and Red Hills road.

The state level committee headed by former chief secretary L K Tripathy also recommended augmenting the fleet strength of Metropolitan Transport Corporation substantially. It has urged the government to add another 1,000 buses to its fleet in two years and wanted replacement of 1,000 old buses with new ones at a total cost of Rs 700 crore. The MTC has got 1,000 new buses only last year.

The plan envisages 26 new bus depots and eleven new bus terminals including those at Broadway, Anna Square, Thiruninravur, Sholinganallur, Vandalur, Mangadu , Saligramam and Tambaram east. It has also proposed an allocation of Rs 100 crore for renewal of existing depots and terminals.

It has also proposed a Rapid Bus Transit Ways (RBTW) - Pallavaram Thuraipakkam Road, Sardar Patel Road, NSK Salai, 20-km OMR, 5-km Taramani Road and Mount Road at a cost of Rs 500 crore as a medium term project. In the next phase, it proposes to take up Rs 1,170 crore RBTW for GST road, Chennai Bye Pass and outer ring road.

Now it’s trade that voices concern at delay in port connectivity project

CHENNAI: It was the turn of the export-import trade on Wednesday to express concern over the delay in completion of the Ennore Manali Road Infrastructure Project envisaged to connect the Chennai and Ennore ports.

It covers four major roads in the industrial hub of north Chennai — Tiruvottiyur Ponneri Panchetti (TPP) Road, Ennore Expressway, Manali Oil Refinery Road and northern portion of the Inner Ring Road from Madhavaram to Manali.

The delay in its completion has prompted Chennai Trade Co-ordination Committee to demand that the Centre announce a time-frame to address infrastructure and connectivity issue. The CTCC, formed in October, comprises representatives of various chambers of commerce and trade and related bodies such as the Confederation of Indian Industry and Custom House Agents Association.

Consultative Committee of City Chambers of Commerce chairman Umesh Pujara said: “We would like to know whether the project is still on and if so, the completion date. Further delay will affect the industrial and economic development of the State and the trade would be forced to ship its products from the neighbouring ports at triple the cost. As per the revised plan, the project was to be completed by end-2008,” he said. Though the trade had increased manifold over last five years, the road network continues to remain the same.

Movement of goods hit


Lorry and truck owners have already threatened to go on strike from the midnight of December 20. Chennai, Kancheepuram, Tiruvallur, Lorry, Tipper, Trailor, Tanker and Van Owner’s Welfare Committee said it would launch an agitation if the State government did not repair the roads in north Chennai on a war footing.

Representatives of the National Association of Container Freight Stations also said that they would stop evacuation of import containers from the port terminal to all container freight stations from January 10.

LPG supplies delayed


The condition of the TPP Road, which worsened after the recent torrential rain, is affecting business of several industrial units in and around Manali. Residents of New Manali Town said there had been several fatal accidents on the road, which for most part of the day is choked with heavy vehicles.

The road condition is also cited as the reason for the delay in supplies of liquefied petroleum gas to thousands of households served by Indian Oil Corporation in the city. Most of the 80-odd distributors to the bottling plant of IOC in Ennore are able to get only one load (a little over 300 cylinders) every day as against their requirement of at least two.

A senior official of the IOC said the bad roads are coming in the way of the distributors meeting the increased demand for the LPG this time of the year. Some distributors say the time taken for supplying the refills is over ten days, after the mandatory 21-day from the previous supply, with many attached to Ennore.

Maintenance work


Official sources said the contract for maintenance on the TPP Road has been awarded to a contractor, who had also commenced work. However, the recent rain caused the work to stop. Maintenance work, which includes filling up of pot holes, is expected to commence shortly.

The officials said that the police had agreed to regulate traffic on the road, once maintenance work recommenced.

It would be restricted to one lane. Maintenance work is expected to be completed before the end of January 2009.

The tender for improving the TPP Road was called for in 2005 and a Rs.40-crore tender awarded to a company, which also commenced work but due to delay in land acquisition, it could not form the proposed four-lane road. The company’s contract was terminated recently and bids called again.

The land acquisition is in its final stages.

By March 2009, work on the four-lane road with two service roads each on both sides is expected to begin. The project cost now stands at Rs.600 crore.
