Only Sutherland remains. A2B demolished their old building and has moved further back in to a new building on the same plot. The place where the earlier setup stood is now their parking lot.

Now only Sutherland stands in the way of road widening going ahead at Vijaya Nagar junction (which will be on the Sutherland side itself, I have heard that there will be no further widening/acquisition on the other side where the canal/drain/sewer/river/two-wheeler and pedestrian trap runs)

There is entry only at Madhavaram and Maduravoyal and no other from ambattur side.

I saw trucks moving on the overbridge in ambattur elevated section. I think the whole bypass is open now.

Wehave an entry/exit near NH205(MTH road).

The vehicles coming from NH5 side towards ambatur industrial estate/NH205(MTH road) and the vehicles coming from ambatur industrial estate/NH205(MTH road) towards NH5 should use the ramp between the elevated highway which is near the patravakam ROB shown in the picture

The vehicles coming from Tambaram/NH4 side towards ambatur industrial estate/NH205(MTH road) and vehicles coming from ambatur industrial estate/NH205(MTH road) towards Tambaram/NH4 should use the entry/exit which is at the other end of the elevated highway .

it takes 1/2 an hour to travel 3 kilometer distance near pallikaranai strip on the Tambaram - Velachery road.This places are developing in a faster pace that the segment between tambaram- Medavakkam and Narayanapuram- velachery vijayanagaram is double laned. While the segment between Medavakkam-Narayanapuram is single laned making commuters difficult to travel in the 3 km long strip.

Decks cleared for road overbridges, underbridges

http://www.thehindu.com/news/states/...icle938207.ece

The State government on Tuesday cleared the deck for the construction of four road overbridges (ROBs) and two road underbridges (RUBs) in the northern and southern suburbs.

The funding pattern for the six facilities has been altered due to considerable delay in rehabilitation, design approval and land acquisition.

Though World Bank funding was initially sought for the implementation of the project, which comes under the third Tamil Nadu Urban Development Project (TNUDP-III) scheme, various terms and conditions imposed by the bank have forced the government to opt for self-funding, a senior Highways Department official.

The facilities would come up at the following railway level crossings – No. 3, 4, 5, 6, 14 and 33. A Government Order (G.O. 230) has approved the construction of ROBs at Vepampattu, Pattaravakkam, Tiruvottiyur and Perungalathur, and RUBs at Wimco Nagar and Tiruvottiyur. A sum of Rs.241 crore has been allocated over the next three fiscal years.

The project, which has had many false starts over the past three years, would finally take off, the official said. “Estimates have been prepared and an initial batch of tenders will be announced in January for the construction of three ROBs,” he said.

According to him, the World Bank terms included reconstruction of houses of every project-affected person, 720 days of wages for petty shops that had to be relocated and a revenue loss compensation for business establishments amounting to two years of earnings.

“Accepting such terms would have a resulted in the compensation package costing more than the actual construction,” the official added.

Last weekend I was driving through the Chennai bypass from Maduravoyal to Pattaravakkam. But I was not able to take the elevated stretch(closed) and after the MTH road crossing the entry ramp to Pattaravakkam ROB was closed. Is Pattaravakkam ROB opened for Public?

Hi Karthic,

This stretch is not opened for traffic officially. but many people started using it. There is some gap between the block they made near the begining of elevated stretch through which many two wheelers and even cars pass through.

Roads to be re-laid from month-end

http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/...icle944269.ece

Chennai Corporation will start re-laying the roads damaged in the recent showers from this month-end at a total cost of Rs.135 crore. This includes the State government's allocation of Rs.60.10 crore towards the work under the Special Roads programme.

Announcing this to mediapersons here on Friday, Mayor M. Subramanian said that 154 bus route roads (BRR) totalling 96.8 km would be re-laid at a cost of Rs.47.70 crore. A total of 112 interior roads across the city would be re-laid for a distance of 49.5 km with nearly Rs.12.40 crore.

The BRR to be covered under the programme include Peters Road, Velachery Main Road, Pulianthope High Road, Basin Power House Road, Harrington Road and Anna Main Road and P. T. Rajan Salai in K. K. Nagar. The Corporation would float tenders for awarding the project in three packages.

As against the targeted 4.20 lakh sq.m. of roads where the Corporation had planned to take up patchwork before the northeast monsoon in October, the work could be completed only on 91,800 sq.m. It could not be completed due to showers, he said.

Besides patchwork on these roads, the projects to re-lay 44 BRR and 778 interior roads are in various stages at a cost of nearly Rs.50 crore. The civic body is also planning to repair concrete roads in 62 slums, Mayor said.

The quality of the road works would be reviewed by State Quality Monitor, comprising a panel of former engineers of the Highways Department. The works would be completed by March next year.

The details about the works would be uploaded on the website www.chennaicorporation.gov.in. on Saturday. Residents may represent to the civic body if any damaged roads in their areas have been left out in the project.

On queries about battered stretches, Mr. Subramanian said road cuts have been made on nearly 700-km stretch of roads for developmental works such as laying of pipelines by Chennai Metrowater and for constructing stormwater drain.

The civic body, along with various government departments, has started work to fill potholes on roads covering 35,000 sq.m. with brick debris as a temporary measure, he added.

HC dismisses pleas against land acquisition for ring road

http://news.in.msn.com/national/arti...mentid=4711377

Madras high court today dismissed a batch of writ petitions challenging acquisition of land for laying an Outer Ring Road around Chennai.
In his order, Justice M Jaichandren said the petitions were devoid of merit and sufficient cause was now shown for grant of relief as prayed by them.
Pointing that the land owners had been given reasonable opportunity to file objections and the compensation awards were passed after considering them, the Judge said it would be open to them to seek relief for enhancement of the amount of compensation by approaching the concerned court.
A group of land owners in suburban Thirunindravur and adjoining areas in Thiruvallur district had challenged the notifications issued by the District Collector for acquiring the land for the road project.
The state government proposed the 63.2 km Outer Ring Road so that would enable users of national highways going through Chennai in order to ease traffic flow in city.
The first phase, covering a stretch of 30 kms between Vandalur and Nemilichery at the cost of Rs 1,082 crore was in progress.

Six small bridges in South Chennai soon

http://www.hindu.com/2010/12/18/stor...1862400300.htm

The Water Resources Department (WRD) will soon construct small bridges in six locations between Thiruvanmiyur and Okkiyam Madu across the South Buckingham canal as part of the city waterways improvement project.

According to officials of the WRD, though the causeways in these places are meant for pedestrian use, many two-wheelers and often cars use them. As the causeways are old, they would be demolished and replaced with single lane bridges.

The bridges – each 3.5 metre wide and 25 to 30 m long – would come up across the canal at Elango Nagar, Kottivakkam, Neelankarai and Okkiyam Madu. Two causeways in Palavakkam, located close by, including one which is known as Mayan bridge, would be replaced with new facilities.

D.Viswanathan, a resident of Palavakkam, said these structures served as a link between Rajiv Gandhi Salai and East Coast Road. Many people travelling from Palavakkam to Kandanchavadi use the causeways. Otherwise, they have to take a detour of nearly six km via Thiruvanmiyur. Officials of WRD said the weeds in the canal near the structures were removed recently for free flow of water and prevent further damage to the structures.

The work to build new bridges would be executed as part of the canal widening measures under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission. The canal would be widened to 20-30 m from the existing 12 to 14 m in the six km stretch between Thiruvanmiyur and Okkiyam Madu. The project worth Rs.44 crore, which was affected due to rain, would be resumed next month and completed in a year.

The construction of the bridges would be completed along with the canal widening and deepening work. Each structure would be built at a cost of Rs.60 lakh, an official said. The department is also simultaneously carrying out works to widen the canal between Okkiyam Madu and Muttukadu for a stretch of 13.5 km.

Corporation to develop model roads soon

http://www.hindu.com/2010/12/22/stor...2262840200.htm

The Chennai Corporation will soon develop Usman Road, Thyagaraya Road and Sivaparakasam Road as model roads in the city. This will be the preliminary step towards redevelopment of T. Nagar after the civic body relocates hawkers to the complex it had built in Pondy Bazaar.

The civic body officials are waiting for the court orders to proceed with the relocation of the hawkers on the three roads. Within a week of a court order, the roads would be cleared of hawkers, said an official.

After 210 hawkers on Usman Road are relocated to the complex, the work on improving the aesthetics of the road is also likely to begin. The road would become more pedestrian-friendly. The number of hawkers to be relocated from Thyagaraya Road is 305. Fourteen hawkers are likely to be removed from Sivaprakasam Road to the complex that has been built on 43,032 sq.ft. space with three lifts. It would locate a total of 644 hawkers and shopkeepers, including those in the previous complex on the same site.

Survey of the roads would be done including the trees on the stretch.

The footpaths on either side of the roads range from 10 to 15 feet in width. The average width of the footpath is around 12 feet.

Trees will not be cut down during the process of development of some of the stretches into model roads, said an official. Everything would comply with urban development norms, he added.
