Way cleared for laying ducts on major roads

The Chennai Corporation has cleared the way for laying ducts on more major roads in the city, including Nelson Manickam Salai, Arcot Salai, G.N.Chetty Road, North Usman Road and South Usman Road by telecom service providers and cable television operators.

The Chennai Cable Consortium (CCC), whose member companies include Skylink, Airtel, Aircel, BSNL, VSNL (Tata), Hathways, Tata Tele services, SCV, U Telecom, Railtel and Power Grid, have finished laying ducts and removed overhead cables on Nungambakkam High Road. Work on Nelson Manickam Road (2.5 km) and Sterling Road (1.2 km) is expected to begin soon.

A Corporation official said, “We have 300 km of bus route roads and we have already given permission for ducts to be laid on 120 km. In the remaining stretches too, we will take up the job in phases.”

CCC secretary Radhakrishna Vittaldev said that in certain portions of 2nd and 3rd Avenues in Anna Nagar, the overhead cables were being removed. On Cathedral Road, the ducting process has been completed. In the course of next month, the cables would be removed.

The CCC has spent close to Rs. 1.5 crore in Anna Nagar for the two roads alone, which total to 5.2 km. For the work on Nungambakkam High Road with a length of 2 km, the consortium has spent around Rs.50 lakh and for the 1.5 km-long Cathedral Road they have spent around Rs.40 lakh.

“The costs are shared by the service providers on the basis of the space used by them. Apart from this, each service provider has to pay the Chennai Corporation Rs. 9,400 for each km every year,” he added.

The Chennai Corporation on Thursday removed encroachments on South Mada Street and 1st Seaward Road

source:http://www.hindu.com/2008/05/30/stor...3059680300.htm

CHENNAI: The Chennai Corporation on Thursday removed encroachments on South Mada Street and 1st Seaward Road, which lead to Valmiki Nagar, as part of its efforts to ease vehicular movement in residential areas of Thiruvanmiyur.

A total of 80 staff of the civic body, three earth-movers and five lorries were pressed into service to remove encroachments by 35 houses and 15 commercial establishments. Police protection was provided for the operation and traffic on the stretches was blocked for sometime.

South Mada Street is 80 feet wide on one end connecting to East Coast Road and 52 feet on the other end that leads to Valmiki Nagar. The houses and shops encroached upon about 4 to 5 feet of the road, which is lined with trees.

Road-widening work at an estimated cost of Rs.20 lakh would be taken up and completed within 15 days.

Zonal Officer M. Sampath said a survey on the encroachments on another stretch in Thiruvanmiyur, East Mada Street, was in progress.

The decision to widen the roads was taken nearly three months ago, he added.

Corporation officials said that there was a proposal to construct a subway-cum-flyover at the Jayanthi Theatre junction and at the time of the construction these roads would be utilised to divert traffic.

Traders oppose expansion of Madras-Tirupati high road

Quote:
Chennai: The muchawaited expansion of the 21-km long stretch of the Madras-Tirupati high (MTH) road from Padi junction to Thiruninravur is facing hurdles with a trader’s body, Tamil Nadu Vanigar Sangankalin Peravai, opposing it.
While the National Highways Authority of India has decided to widen the MTH road (national highway 205) as a 200-feet road, the traders argue that 75 feet is enough for the road expansion and a wider road would displace the small trading community here.
The traders’ forum formed a 15-member committee last week to take up the issue with the authorities concerned in the state and central governments. It also cautioned that it would go on an agitation if the authorities tried to relocate them.
Speaking to the Times of India, TN Vanigar Sangankalin Peravai president T Vellaiyan said, “We are not opposing the project as such, but only insist that it should be reasonable. Even the width of the Inner Ring Road where the Koyambedu Bus Terminus is situated is only 100 ft. If that is the case, we don’t understand why they need a 200 ft road here. The government should realise that widening of this road would affect thousands of small traders.’’
Traders won’t raise any objection even if it was 90 ft but anything more than that would invite severe protest, Vellaiyan added.
However, sources in the NHAI said they need a minimum of 150 ft for road expansion. “As per the NHAI rules, the road should have a width of 200 ft. However, we told the state government if they could not provide us 200 ft, we would require at least 150 ft.’’ They said it was estimated that more than 3,500 structures on both sides of the road would be demolished whether it is 150 ft or 200 ft expansion.
“As of now, the state government is examining the project. We have given four proposals to the government including construction of an elevated highway on MTH Road. We hope things will become clear in a month or two,’’ NHAI sources said.
Another controversy likely to arise is from the people themselves, with the NHAI’s proposal to lay this road under Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) scheme, if the government does not come forward to fund the project.
Sources said that under the BOT scheme, a private firm will build the road and collect toll from road users.
Vehicles except twowheelers and autorickshaws have to pay the specified toll to use the road.

Arcot road can be considered the total face of Traffic Congestion... I don't think any govt will dare to touch it as it would lead to more chaos rather than improving it..
we can introduce "Magic Boxes"... like what they do in Bangalore for Traffic junctions... which is placing precasted bridges.. supposed to take not more than a couple of weeks (but actually it takes more than a month to complete the installation in Bangalore)... Or the other way is to bypass it like many vehicles do by using the IRR, Kathipara and GST..

as per new master plan, arcot road was to become a 100 ft road. you would see all new projects putting up their compound walls well inside.

From this link http://www.hindu.com/2004/07/21/stor...2110250300.htm,I came to know,Arcot road was origionally 100 ft road.

Quote:
The 100-feet Arcot Road, which is closer to 80 feet near Vadapalani, narrows down to 40 feet near Virugambakkam market before once again widening near Porur. Of course, the `100-feet road' tag does not fit the bill anywhere.
If it is due to encroachments,govt would have removed it long before.

Four-lane East Coast Road under study

Quote:
CHENNAI: The Tamil Nadu Road Development Company (TNRDC) has been entrusted with the task of taking up a techno-feasibility study besides geometric corrections on the East Coast Road to covert it into a four-lane road from the existing two-lane main carriageway.

“The Tamil Nadu government is keen on widening the main carriage of the ECR to help de-congest the increasing road traffic flowing on this stretch, as many theme parks and boating yard facilities are located on this entertainment corridor,” a senior official of the TNRDC told The Hindu on Monday.

The official said the TNRDC authorities, especially those connected with the road traffic management, would meet software companies located on the IT corridor next week to work together and sort out matters relating to traffic problems.

Referring to the proposed 10-lane toll plaza at Perungudi on the IT corridor, the official said apart from this primary toll plaza, the TNRDC authorities would be constructing satellite toll plazas at Thorapakkam, the Sholinganallur-Medavakkam junction, the ECR link road to Sholinganallur and Siruseri.

The toll for one-way travel for three-wheelers, including autorickshaws, from Perungudi to Siruseri has been fixed at Rs.6, for four-wheelers it is Rs.17; buses including those operated by the State Road Transport Corporation will be charged Rs.44 and trucks Rs.66.

The official said that 12 more foot overbridges (FOBs) would come up on the 20.1-km IT corridor six-lane main carriage way.

Already, there are three FOBs between Madhya Kailash Temple to the SRP Tools Road junction. The IT corridor was currently handling 40,000 vehicles a day.

Proposal to widen CTH Road gets a nod from local bodies

Traders, who will be hit by land acquisition process, are likely to oppose it


Waiting for relief: Motorists experiencing the agony of inching traffic as seen in Mannurpet on CTH Road.

CHENNAI: It may soon be the end of the daily ordeal for motorists taking the battered Padi and Thiruninravur stretch of the Chennai Tiruvallur High Road as Ambattur and Avadi Municipalities have given consent for improvements to and widening of the road.

The project, to be taken up by the National Highways Authority of India, may, however, run into trouble as traders along the CTH Road, who would be affected by the land acquisition process, are likely to oppose it.

Both the municipalities gave their approval for the project, including acquisition of the additional land to widen the road up to 60 metres. Officials of both the local bodies said the decision was unanimously taken by the council members.

The progress in the proposal to widen the CTH Road, a crucial link to Andhra Pradesh, has brought cheer to the residents of various areas en route. Residents complained that several stretches of the busy road were in an appalling condition, particularly in Thirumullaivoyal. Despite repeated representations made to repair the crater-filled stretches, the road has seen little improvement in the past two years.

“I have little option than to bear the back-breaking ride on the CTH Road to reach my office in Chetpet. What used to be hardly 20-minute ride from Thirumullaivoyal to the Padi junction now takes nearly an hour, owing to the heavy traffic,” said Venkat Sriram, a resident of Thirumullaivoyal.

Accidents are a common feature of the CTH Road as the road, narrow in a few stretches, is also used by heavy vehicles. Residents recalled an accident sometime ago, which involved a motorcycle and tipper lorry in Padi that proved fatal for a young woman who rode pillion on the bike.

General secretary of People’s Voice Roy Rozario said that several stretches were accident-prone. At least four to five accidents on the CTH Road were reported in a month.

Vice-president of Tamil Nadu Progressive Consumer Centre T. Sadagopan said commuters in share-autorickshaws face the risk of being thrown off the vehicles on the bumpy stretches.

On the other hand, the project proposal has disheartened a section of traders. State general secretary of Tamil Nadu Traders’ Federation K.Mohan said that about 25,000 traders along the CTH Road would be affected.

“We have decided to co-operate for widening the road up to 75 feet. We may have to oppose the project in case of adverse impact on traders,” he said.

An NHAI official said that as the local bodies had agreed to widen the road up to 60 metres, the project on the 22-km stretch would be taken up at the ground-level instead of creating an elevated corridor. At least 45 metres of space was needed for the project to take off. Land acquisition for the project, to be implemented on the ‘build-operate and transfer’ basis, would begin shortly, he added.

CMDA launches transport study

Staff Reporter

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

It will cover traffic studies and surveys

The findings will help in judicious investments in road infrastructure

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

CHENNAI: The Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) has launched a comprehensive transportation study for Chennai under the ongoing World Bank-funded Tamil Nadu Urban Development Project-III (TNUDP-III).

The 18-month-long study would cover an extensive set of traffic studies and surveys, including roadside origin and destination surveys, traffic volume counts on all critical road links and intersections, a massive household interview survey to capture the passenger travel characteristics of the metropolis, parking surveys, commercial vehicle surveys, intermediate public transport surveys, bus and rail commuters’ surveys, bus and rail commuters’ surveys and accident traffic analysis.

The study will provide a directional plan for the Chennai Metropolitan Area and assist in making judicious investments in road and transport infrastructure, says a release. The study assumes significance in the context of the second Master Plan becoming operational shortly.
