Non-motorised transport exercise gets off to a colourful start

o create enough space for cyclists and pedestrians
Orange, yellow and violet stripes and chequered patterns greeted road users on Raja Street and Big Bazaar Street near Town Hall as the Coimbatore Corporation’s exercise to promote non-motorised transport (NMT) got off to a colourful start.

The civic body has joined hands with German agency GIZ to promote cycling and walking as a part of the NMT project by painting the roads, says Urban Transport Expert Ranjith Parvathapuram.

The project has just begun on Big Bazaar Street, one of the two roads the two organisations has first identified for the NMT exercise. The idea is to streamline vehicle movement so that there is enough space for cyclists and pedestrians.

Aside from painting the roads, they have also placed wooden structures and used-tyre piles as seats for commuters at bus stops and spread saris as shades to protect pedestrians from sun.

Mr. Parvathapuram says the arrangements will stay in place for 15 days during which the organisations will take people’s feedback. Thereafter, the Corporation will take a call on making permanent the painted portion as non-motorised areas.

The German agency has earmarked ₹ 10 lakh for the purpose to paint not only the Big Bazaar Street, but also Cross Cut Road and a few other stretches on city roads. And, the two organisations will take up the two roads because in its survey it found passenger movement to be the highest in the city – close to 4,000 people walking or crossing the roads in an hour, he points out.

In the survey, the GIZ has identified 26 such places with high pedestrian movement and 300 km of city roads for developing NMT corridors. This exercise will be the first for an Indian city because in other cities, the GIZ has developed only junctions.

Mr. Parvathapuram further says that the NMT exercise will involve only painting road surface and not an infrastructure development as the GIZ wants to create maximum impact with minimum investment.

It started the exercise with a city-wide survey in July this year followed by stakeholder meeting with various government departments, he adds.

The civic body has so far completed 18 projects worth ₹ 72.67 crore
Coimbatore Corporation ranks first among the 11 urban local bodies in the State in implementing projects taken up under the Central Government-funded Smart Cities Mission programme.

At a State-level review meeting, held in Chennai on Friday, which saw officials from the 11 municipal corporations participate, Coimbatore Corporation ranked first, said the civic body sources. Though the third-ranked Greater Chennai Corporation had also completed as many projects as the Coimbatore Corporation – 18 – the latter ranked first because it had no project that needed either approval or preparation of detailed project report.

The Greater Chennai Corporation had three projects for which the civic body was preparing detailed project report.



The sources said that the Coimbatore Corporation had completed 18 projects worth ₹ 72.67 crore, had 21 projects in various stages of execution at ₹ 755.56 crore, was evaluating tender for four projects that were worth ₹ 7.28 crore, had called for tender for a project for ₹ 15.7 crore and had five projects worth ₹ 163.59 crore for which it had called for tender.


In all, the civic body had taken up 49 projects worth ₹ 1,014.8 crore.

The projects that the Corporation had completed included installation of air quality monitoring devices, erection of digital display boards, construction of two solar power plants of one MW each, development of four parks among a few others.

The projects that it was implementing included the one for 24x7 drinking water distribution, lake development, and multi-level car parking among a few others.

The projects for which the Coimbatore Corporation was yet to call for tender included development of Race Course as a model road, rejuvenation of Narasampathy and Kurichi tanks, biomining accumulated waste in Vellalore and purchase of light commercial vehicles for waste collection.

The sources said the Corporation was looking at quickening the pace of development of lakes so that the city's residents get to have places for recreation and the Corporation improve its ranking among urban local bodies.

உக்கடம் பெரியகுளத்தின் அழகான தோற்றம் : ‘குலவை‘க்கு தயாராகும் ‘கோவை‘..! (வீடியோ)^^^^

கோவை : தமிழகத்தின் மாநகராட்சி பகுதிகளில், நீர் நிலைகளை சீர் அமைத்தல், குளங்களை தூர்வாருதல், குடி மராமத்து பணிகளை மேற்கொள்ளுதல், தெரு விளக்குகளை சீரமைத்தல், எல்.இ.டி. பல்புகள் பொருத்துதல் போன்ற பல்வேறு பணிகள் நடைபெற்று வருகின்றது. இதற்கு கோவை மாநகராட்சிக்கும், தமிழக அரசுக்கு நன்றி கூற நாம் கடமைப்பட்டிருக்கிறோம். ஏன் என்றால் மாறி வரும் கோயம்புத்தூரை வெளிமாவட்டத்தினர் கண்டால் ஐ லவ் யூ கோயம்புத்தூர் என்றே சொல்லத் தோன்றும்.

ஸ்மார்ட் சிட்டி திட்டத்தின் கீழ் கோவையில் பல்வேறு பணிகளை மேற்கொள்ள உள்ளாட்சி துறை அமைச்சர் எஸ்.பி.வேலுமணி அடிக்கல் நாட்டினார். இந்நிலையில் உக்கடம் பெரியகுளம் புனரைமைக்கப்பட்டு பல்வேறு வசதிகள் மேம்படுத்தப்பட்டு வருகிறது. குப்பை மேடாக காட்சியளித்த பெரியகுளம் தற்போது கோபுரமே வந்து குடியிருக்க ஆசைப்பட்டால் அதில் ஆச்சரியப்பட ஒன்றும் இல்லை என்றே சொல்லலாம்.

அதன் அழகிய தோற்றம் ஆசிய நாட்டையே மெய்சிலிர்க்கும் அளவுக்கு மாற்றப்பட்டுள்ளது. உக்கடம் முதல் பேரூர் வரை செல்லும் சாலையோரத்தில் அழகிய பூங்காக்கள் முதல் நடைபயிற்சி என பட்டியல் நீள்கிறது. இளைப்பாறவும், களைப்பாறவும் குழந்தைகள் முதல் பெரியவர்கள் வரை அனைவரும் கண்டுகளிக்க ஏற்றவாறு மாறி வருகிறது உக்கடம் பெரியகுளம்.

கோவையின் இருதயமாக செயல்படும் உக்கடம் பேருந்து நிலையத்தில் இருந்த பேரூர் வழியாக செல்லும் சாலையில் நீர் நிலைகளை சேமித்து புனரமைக்கப்பட்டுள்ள வீடியோ ஒன்றை மாநகராட்சி வெளியிட்டுள்ளது. நீர் நிலைகளை சேமித்து ஸ்மார்ட் சிட்டி திட்டத்தின் கீழ் கொண்டு வந்து அழகிய நகரமாக மாற்றிய மாநகராட்சிக்கு நிச்சயம் நாம் நன்றி சொல்ல கடமைப்பட்டிருக்கிறோம்.
