Is it supposed to be 2 lanes or single lane each direction? It rather looks like 1.5 lanes each side with no clear road markings.
Two buses can't overtake.. But a bus and car can go side by side. Weird lane configuration. Have seen such cramped lane configuration at LA and NYC downtowns comparing with interstate.

If it is built similar to Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge then it will be awesome.

Such glass bridge can be built in hill stations like Ooty, Kodaikanal & Yercaud. This bridge is mainly to reduce congestion on ferry for reaching both the attractions. So normal bridge will made sense for faster movement of tourist.. if bridge itself becomes attraction then it will be chaos.

Iconic bridge will be good, but it should not be a bigger attraction than the two monuments. Also, this is built in sea and prone to cyclones etc. Not sure whether some bridge designed to look good can be built in this case.

Whether it will be completed within the allotted time will be the test to their testament.If completed it will be a good record to cherish,since most of them will miss their deadline.

மதுரை: மதுரை தேனி ரோட்டில் 2 கிமீ தூரத்திற்கு உயர்மட்ட பாலம் கட்ட தேசிய நெடுஞ்சாலை ஆணையம் முடிவு செய்து அதற்கான பணிகளை துவங்கியுள்ளது. ராமேஸ்வரத்தில் இருந்து கொச்சின் வரையிலான தேசிய நெடுஞ்சாலை மதுரை வழியாக செல்கிறது. ஏற்கனவே மதுரை ராமநாதபுரம் வரை நான்கு வழிச்சாலையாக மாற்றப்பட்டு விட்டது. தற்போது மதுரையில் இருந்து தேனி வரையிலான தேசிய நெடுஞ்சாலையும் நான்கு வழிச்சாலையாக மாற்றப்பட்டு, உசிலம்பட்டியில் இருந்து நாகமலைபுதுக்கோட்டை வரை ரோடு விரிவாக்கம் செய்யப்பட்டுள்ளது. அதேபோன்று மதுரையில் தேனி ரோட்டில், காளவாசல் முதல் முடக்குச்சாலை வரை ரோடு விரிவாக்கம் செய்யப்பட்டது.

விராட்டிபத்து, அச்சம்பத்து பகுதியில் ரோடு மிகவும் குறுகியதாக உள்ளதால், இந்த பகுதியில் விரிவாக்கம் செய்ய முடியவில்லை இதற்கு பதிலாக இந்த 2 ஊர்களுக்குள் செல்லாமல் சுமார் 7 கி.மீ தூரத்திற்கு, புறவழிச்சாலை அமைக்கப்பட உள்ளது. இது, தேனி ரோட்டில் டிவிஎஸ் அடுத்து டிபிஎம் நகர் அருகே துவங்கி, விருதுநகர்- திண்டுக்கல் நான்குவழிச்சாலையில் இணைந்து, அங்கிருந்து நாகமலைபுதுக்கோட்டையை சென்றடைகிறது. இந்த நான்கு வழிச்சாலையில், முடக்குச்சாலையில் இருந்து, டிபிஎம் நகர் வரை அதிகமான வளைவுகள் மற்றும் இணைப்பு ரோடுகள் இருப்பதால், உயர்மட்ட பாலம் கட்ட முடிவு செய்யப்பட்டுள்ளது.

இந்த உயர்மட்ட பாலம், தேனி ரோட்டில், பி.பி.சாவடியில் இருந்து, விராட்டிபத்து டிபிஎம் நகர் வரை சுமார் 2 கி.மீ தூரத்திற்கு அமைக்கப்பட உள்ளது. இந்த பாலத்திற்காக தற்போது பி.பி.சாவடியில் இருந்து, டிபிஎம் நகர் வரை வருவாய்த்துறையினர் அளவீடு செய்து எவ்வளவு நிலம் கையகப்படுத்த வேண்டும் என கணக்கிட்டு வருகின்றனர். ஏற்கனவே, புறவழிச்சாலைக்கான நிலம் கையகப்படுத்த நோட்டீஸ் விநியோகம் செய்யப்பட்டு, அதற்கான பணி நடைபெற்று வருவது குறிப்பிடத்தக்கது.

Its 4 lane till paramakudi when I drove to Rameswaram last december end.. not sure if they are extending further till Ramanathapuram/Rameswaram. Traffic was there when I visited during peak travel season but not sure about other days.
It's a NH standard 2 lane highway with services beyond Paramakudi. Not 4 laned.

NHAI begins flyover work on Tiruchi-Thanjavur highway

The National Highways Authority of India has begun flyover construction work near Ganesan Point in front of BHEL complex on Tiruchi-Thanjavur highway.

The new bridge was sanctioned following persistent demands from the public in view of frequent accidents around Ganesa Point Roundabout, which was considered too big.

While the highway caters to a huge volume of traffic, a large number of BHEL employees cross the highway at the point for their commute to work every day as it runs through the industrial complex and township.

The roundabout was built after widening of Tiruchi-Thanjavur highway by NHAI some years ago. With many vehicles capsizing while negotiating the sharp curves around the roundabout, calls turned shrill to construct a flyover at the spot and remove the roundabout or reduce its size.

The flyover is to be built at a cost of nearly ₹50 crore and some BHEL lands have been acquired for the purpose.

Last year, BHEL translocated some fully grown trees from the roadside to interior parts of its campus.

NHAI has started work on laying of service lanes and work is under way on construction of drains and culverts. The work has now been under way for nearly two months.

Once the service lanes are ready on either side of the highway, traffic will be diverted through them to facilitate construction of the flyover on the main carriageway.

Some clicks of Flyover near Salem..

1. Recently opened flyover on Salem bypass near Salem West RTO

NH44 & NH544 trumpet interchange

606331


Salem-Coimbatore NH544 & Salem-Trichengode SH junction is getting a flyover (was a major black spot). This might be getting ready in 3 months. Ramps work are going in full swing.

606334


606340


606341


Another flyover u/c near Magudanchavadi.. Edappadi SH that diverges from Salem-Coimbatore NH544. These cross roads should have got flyover back 14yrs before.. as short sightedness, NHAI built these junction as median open and all turned out to a major accident spot in the state and now flyover u/c. This might take more than 6 months to finish.
