Soma has completed all the pillars . No work on top of the pillars for the spans has been commenced. This is the case for the last 2 months.

In the Koyambedu-Aminjikari a construction company assembled all the machineries and did some soil testing after that no progress

in the spurtank road to Ethiraj road piling has been completed . Skeleton for the pillars has come up .

After Ethiraj road the mechanic shops has to be demolioshed to proceed further.

Currently the SG is no mood to move the people. So the expressway can commence only in 2017.

Joshi-Vasan meet to push TN road plan
Chennai Port-Maduravoyal Road Delay To Be Discussed


Quote:
Concerned over the delay in the implementation of the elevated Chennai Port-Maduravoyal road, a top level meeting between highways minister C P Joshi and shipping minister G K Vasan will be held in Chennai on Monday. The meeting has been reportedly called by Vasan, and will be attended by senior officials of Tamil Nadu government.

Sources in the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) said the project has faced hurdles due to nonavailability of land on certain stretches of this 19-km corridor, out of which 17 km will be elevated. “There are some issues relating to the rehabilitation of families which would be displaced for this road work. The meeting involving all government stakeholders will help resolve the sticky issues,” a highways ministry official said.

NHAI officials said the Rs 1,655 crore road project would be delayed at least by one year. The original deadline of the project was September 2013. They added that the project received environmental clearance only six months ago. “It’s a crucial project since the road will improve the port connectivity and bypass the city,” said an official.

The elevated corridor is seen as the solution to the chaos on roads leading to the port, as container traffic has increased manifold in the past few years. The delay was also highlighted by port operators at the recently held India Maritime Week in the capital where private players had stressed on fast tracking port connectivity projects.

Officials said the two central ministers will also review progress of the Chennai-Tuticorin port connectivity which started in June last year. They said the project is likely to be completed within the given deadline.

Sticking Points
Land has been unavailable in some stretches of the 19-km Chennai Port-Maduravoyal highway project
Families who are likely to be displaced by the project need to be rehabilitated
Environmental clearance was only received six months ago

Delhi Annai is using all techniques to stop projects in TN, so that she can blame Amma in next Polls..
ANNAI can blame AMMA
for SG part, JJ also keeping her Ego in not speeding up the projects by DMK...
DMK govt start the projects, and loots the money....
DMDK.. they are not taking people problem and fight it as opposition party. if they taken these issues and questioned in Assembly, atleast some media would have covered and Amma would have moved few pieces.

I think it is best that there should be volunteer committee from the public to interact with Govt on periodic monitoring, reviewing the projects, questioning the deadline.

Post Jayalalithaa orders second outer ring road

Chennai, Jan 23 : In a bid to free this metropolis from traffic congestion, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa today issued orders for laying a 32 km-long second outer ring road (ORR), connecting the south with northern suburbs, at a cost of Rs 1,075 crore.

To free the city from traffic congestion and prevent heavy vehicles and containers from entering the city to reach Chennai Port, Ennore Port and Industries located on the city outskirts, the Chief Minister ordered the second ring road from Nemilicherry in the southern part of the city to Tiruvotriyur- Ponneri-Panchatti in the north, an official release here said.

The outer ring road, covering a distance of 32 km, would be built on the Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode and under the basis of Build Operate and Transfer (BOT) following the annuity system, the release said. The government has already sanctioned the first outer ring road from Vandalur to Nemilicherry via Nazarathpet, covering a distance of 29.65 kms to be built at a cost of Rs 1081.40 crore.

This road is being built with PPP and under the Design, Build, Finance mobilisation and Transfer (DBFOT) system, the release said. All the works in connection with the laying of first outer ring road would be completed by November this year, the release said.The building of the outer ring roads would ensure heavy vehicles and containers entering the city from various directions would be diverted through these roads to reach the ports and other industries located on the northern sides of the city, the release said.

This would not only ease the traffic congestion in the city but reduce the running time and avert accidents to great extent, the release said. Ms Jayalalithaa also sanctioned Rs 285 crore for maintaining roads and bridges in the state, the release said stating that maintenance of existing roads and bridges were equally important while laying of new roads.

The Highways Department would utilise the fund to periodically maintain roads, bridges and flyovers throughout the state by removing the accumulated sand on the roadsides, planting trees and facilitating storm water drains, it said.

Yes. Even in yesterday's press meet GK Vasan assured about the completion of Chennai port to Maduravoyal elevated corridor.

Cross posting from Chennai, Ennore & Kattupalli Ports - Projects Updates

Ennore-Manali road will be completed by June 2013: Union Ministers


Fifteen years may be too long a time for a 30-km road project to be completed, but, when the Ennore-Manali ‘improved road' does open for traffic in June 2013, the past is likely to be forgotten, given the criticality of the road to users of the Ennore port.

Today, the two Union Ministers, the Shipping Minister, Mr G.K. Vasan, and the Minister in-charge of Road Transport and Highways, Dr C.P. Joshi, gave a commitment at a joint press conference that the project would be completed by June next year. “Do not go into the reasons for the delay. We are giving you the deadline and will jointly ensure that the project is completed on time,” Mr Vasan said.

The two Ministers today had a meeting with representatives from the Tamil Nadu Government, the Chennai Port Trust, Ennore Port Ltd and National Highways Authority of India, which is implementing the project. The project covers the four major roads in the industrial hub of north Chennai — Tiruvottiyur-Ponneri-Panchetti Road, Ennore Expressway, Manali Oil Refinery Road and the northern portion of the Inner Ring Road from Madhavaram to Manali.

The Chennai port handles over 5,000 containers a day and trucks need to take this thru Ennore-Manali road for entry and exit to the port. Dr Joshi said that the first priority is to complete the 1.6 km stretch from the Chennai port's zero gate. This will be completed in the first six months. Mr Vasan also assured that work on the Chennai port to Maduravoyal elevated corridor would be speeded

100% sure . Except for the security person no body is in the area. Except the barricades all equipments moved out from the Site.

In the entire project piling is going on in a stretch for 50 feet opp rajamuttaih hall near Ethiraj College . rest no work in the entire stretch.

There needs there has to be drive to evacuate people on the banks to continue further which is not happening. I spoke to a trader in pudupet he said in previous govt there was a proposal to move the market to Oragadam. The traders protested. during election the local MLA was voted to power on gurantee that no shops will be moved out of the area. He was sure that with Assembly gone they are going anywhere. I told about the port project he said that has been stopped and will not be done.

He said there is aleternative arrangement made to move the containers vide Manali road . So this project will not be completed.

I am thinking what they will do with the pillars . May be put a metro line to poonamallee from Koyambedu.

Fate of elevated link road project in Navy's hands



http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/...cle2843038.ece

The finalisation of alignment for the Rs.1,655-crore elevated link road from Chennai Port to Maduravoyal may now be in the hands of the Navy, as it owns the small portion of land on which stakeholders are planning to have the entry and exit ramp. The patch of land identified is on Kamarajar Salai, close to Gate No.10 of the port.

Speaking to The Hindu, a Chennai Port Trust (ChPT) official said talks were on with the Navy officials to secure the land from them to construct the entry/exit ramp for the elevated corridor, without affecting the heritage structures in the vicinity such as the War Memorial and Napier Bridge.

“Officials of the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and State government have to bring the Navy to the discussion table to arrive at a decision. While we have given our in-principle approval to hand over our land in Tondiarpet Housing Colony to the Navy as compensation, the latter is yet to accept the proposal,” the ChPT official said. NHAI officials have initiated dialogue with the State government officials for facilitating the exchange of land.

As soon as the work on the 19-km stretch commenced from the Maduravoyal side some three years ago, several theories were floated by port users about the landing point, stating it could be either near Napier Bridge or the War Memorial. But there was no official announcement.

Mooted by ChPT, NHAI and State government, a major portion of the elevated corridor travels along the Cooum river bank. Though the piling work was going on along South Cooum River Road, it was not at desired pace. Work is yet to begin at the starting point (gate 10) opposite War Memorial, pending finalisation of alignment and completion of land acquisition process.

Initially, a few alignments were proposed for the elevated corridor, of which two would decline just after Napier Bridge and proceed towards the War Memorial. As there is a ban on entry/exit of vehicles during the day through gate 10 due to VIP movements, the proposal was dropped.

However, the third alignment would run over the Cooum river and would cut across the Kamarajar Salai after Napier Bridge (near a go-karting facility located there now) off Sivananda Salai, official sources said.

Third alignment

As per the proposed plan, the third alignment will land in a part of an 11,000-sq.m extent housing the Navy's residential quarters, take a right turn near M1 Warehouse and travel along the stretch to reach gate 10. The height of the elevated corridor near Napier Bridge would be 12 metres and at the residential quarters at 6 meters, according to officials.

“We are now exploring this possibility. But, we will start the work only after getting the Navy's consent. It will not be late, as the work involved is much less than in other parts of the link road,” an official said.
