Pre-bid meeting for ORR project held

CHENNAI: The pre-bid meeting for the proposed Outer Ring Road project was organised by the Tamil Nadu Road Development Company (TNRDC) on Thursday.

Representatives of several companies that had evinced interest in the project participated in the meeting. Queries regarding the possibility of extending the allotted timeframe, land availability and utility shifting were raised at the meeting.

The companies were informed that land acquisition for phase I of the proposed Outer Ring Road (ORR) from Vandalur to Nemilichery has been completed for 29.65 km.

A total of 271.91 hectares of private land and 74.97 hectares of government and other department land had been acquired for the project by the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority. Sources in TNRDC, which is the managing associate for the project, said that only 1.08 hectare of land was under dispossession stay.

Additional land had to be acquired if needed for construction of flyovers and at interchange locations.

A total of 18 companies including L&T Limited, Nagarjuna Construction Company, GMR Infrastructure, Gammon India, Hindustan Construction Company and AFCONS Infrastructure Limited, have evinced interest in the project and representatives had gone on a site visit on March 25.

The date of opening proposals submitted by the bidders has been set for May 21 and the date of opening financial proposal would be June 18.

The ORR is to be constructed on a development, build, finance, operation and transfer (DBFOT) on an annuity basis.

The construction period of the project is 30 months. The civil construction for the project is likely to commence in December.

Successful bidders would be given a project support fund of Rs. 300 crore and then an annuity for 17.5 years.

The proposed road would have six lanes (three on either side), service roads, footpaths, planter strip (green belt), paved shoulder and 22 meters for a proposed public transportation corridor. The road would cross several waterbodies including Vandalur Eri, Adyar River, Cooum River and Thandalar Lake.

Flyovers would come up at the junctions of Vandalur-Wallajabad road, Tambaram-Somangalam Road, Kodambakkam-

Sriperumbudur Road. Vehicular underpasses would be constructed at Mudichur, Thirumudivakkam, Amadurmedu and two other places. A total of 24 pedestrian underpasses and 80 culverts would also come up on the road.

Now the road on both the MRTS side is complete upto sakthi nagar main road. Really happy it is progressing in a rapid pace. MRTS is also progressing really well.

Couple of updates

1. Looks like the Chennai Bypass service lanes are being widened near Chennai Tech Park. Heavy work was going on there , I saw the middle of the road was being scratched out, probably for a median.

2. MTH Road was once again looking at its hopeless best , any idea when they are going to start widening the road ?

3. The Thirumangalam-Ambattur Estate road is developing as a model road for Chennai city, smoothly laid out with cleanly painted medians , road markings and reflectors makes it one of the best roads to drive in chennai.

4. Most of the roads inside Ambattur estate have been relaid.

Since I was driving, couldnt get hands on into some pictures.

i don't believe there was any change to thirumangalam - ambattur road. that is how this road has been for years now. this is a dull boring road when compared to 2nd avenue.

Bus route to link Ayanavaram, Kilpauk

Soon, a new four-lane bus route road is expected to link Aynavaram and
Kilpauk.

According to official sources, the Chennai Corporation has prepared a Rs 4.5 crore estimate to convert the three km-long Ayanavaram Road, which begins near the Institute of Mental Health, into a four-lane stretch linking Medavakkam Tank Road in Ayanavaram and New Avadi Road in Kilpauk.

"We have asked the Institute of Mental Health and Metrowater to give a portion of their land along the road to the corporation. A total of

Rs 1.5 crore was given to them to demolish the existing compound walls and reconstruct them after leaving the earmarked portion of land for road-widening. Our part of the project, which will commence once the parliamentary elections are over, is expected to be completed in three months,'' a senior corporation official told The Times of India.

"As of now, the road is only about 15 to 20 ft wide. Even two-wheelers find it difficult to proceed if there is a lorry or van coming from the opposite direction. Pedestrians are the worst-hit, particularly during peak hours since motorists from both Medavakkam Tank Road and New Avadi Road use this stretch as a short cut. As per our plan, the road will have four lanes, each 12 ft wide, with a median and footpaths on both sides,'' the official added.

Several residents living on Ayanavaram Road said the four-laning would bring them bus connectivity and considerably reduce traffic congestion at Ayanavaram signal, Kellys Signal, Konnur High Road and Purasawakkam High Road.

"We have already made a representation to Mayor Ma Subramanian for a bus facility from Vyasarpadi and Perambur to Koyambedu through New Avadi Road. The corporation should also take steps to make the ICF Link Road, linking Konnur High Road and Villivakkam railway station, a bus route,'' said Ayanavaram Residents Welfare Association president K Ramadoss.

ORR is very well happening and the tenders are open now. If you visit TNRDC website u can find the live tenders.

If you go through the technical document, you can find atleast 6 grade separators and some flyovers for the first 29 km they're gonna build in Phase I. They've planned it well...

I fully agree. You should see the new boulders placed in the middle of the road between Maduravoyal & Koyambedu on PH Road - Just waiting for the first casuality. The boulders have already been disturbed and can lie anywhere upto 3 feet from their origilnal location - Nightmare driving in the night.

The road width under the bypass is planned to cover almost the full distance between the pillars (about 20 metres as against the usable width of only about 6 metres earlier). Middle of the road has not been scratched out - that is the original road on which vehicles travelled though I must admit a scratched out road may have been better to travel on

The industries in the Estate had to pay a substantial amount to have the roads done up in the estate. The Central Govt. gave the balance under a govt scheme.

ya, those loose stones as medians were insane. but next time you visit chennai, you might be surprised because many of them are gone now. many roads now have proper medians and remaining roads with such stones to divide traffic are properly cemented now.

New Outer Ring Road to have advanced traffic management

Chennai: A state-of-the art Advanced Traffic Management System is among several modern facilities that will dot the Outer Ring Road along the periphery of Chennai Metropolitan Area in Kancheepuram and Tiruvallur districts when the road is eventually developed under the Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Transfer (DBFOT) Annuity basis.
The Tamil Nadu highways department has already floated bids for the project, which was envisaged by the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority under the second master plan. The pre-bid meeting for parties interested in the taking up the project was held earlier this month.
The proposed Outer Ring Road will connect NH-45 at Vandalur in the south with the T hir uvottiyur-Ponneri-Panchetti (TPP) Road at Minjur in the north. It intersects five major roads — NH 45 (GST Road), NH 4 (Bangalore Road), NH 205 (CTH Road), NH 5 (GNT Road) and TPP Road. Development of the entire stretch has been divided into four segments and proposed to be implemented in two phases.
“Once the road is developed, it will have all the modern facilities that will give the ultimate comfort to motorists who undertake long journey. The successful bidder for the project would be expected to set up an Advanced Traffic Management System. This will be a real-time, round-theclock system for informing the road users about traffic and weather conditions on the highway,” a source in the highways department said. The ATMS will also help in locating accident spots. Highway users can also make emergency calls through Emergency Call Booths to the control centre in case of accidents or break down of vehicles and fire, and to pre-warn the road users about unusual conditions on the road.
The successful bidder will provide wayside amenities along the Outer Ring Road including toilets, drinking water facilities and emergency health care facilities for accident victims. “The company that bags the contract has to finalise the location and the layout plan of wayside amenities in consultation with the highways department and the Tamil Nadu Road Development Company,” an official said.
To ensure that pedestrians are not run over by speeding vehicles, the highways department has earmarked 24 spots where the selected company has to construct pedestrian underpasses (subways).
“The successful bidder should also provide two truck lay-bys, each with minimum provision for 50 trucks, on either side along the Outer Ring Road. Similarly, a provision must be made for 50 bus bays with 25 bus stops along each direction,” the source added.
The proposed Outer Ring Road intersects 5 major roads — NH 45 (GST Road), NH 4 (Bangalore Road), NH 205 (CTH Road), NH 5 (GNT Road) and TPP Road

The best part, I think, in the tender is 50 bus bays (25 on each side) for the 29 (approx) km of Phase I.

This will make RBTW project easier to be implemented on this road.

ORR

50 trucks space? Why don't these guys think with their brains? a 60 km road should have space for atleast 1000 trucks to park. Idiotic babus

dude.. this tender is for the first phase which is 29 km (approx). and 50 truck parking space is more than enough.

1000 trucks is utter bullshit! they are not building a parking lot for trucks!!
