Dear Friends,

What is status of Trichy - B'lore Highway 4 laning / 6 laning work.
It seems There is no updates, whether the project is in live? or dropped?

Is it Green Field Highway? if it is Green Field one, As per my guess, this Koothur will be the intersecting Point of B'lore H'way with Chennai Highway.

Someone Please update the status.

Looking at issues involved in pilot initiative: CoP

Exclusive lanes for two-wheelers on Bharathidasan Salai have not brought lane discipline

The city police move to introduce exclusive lanes for two-wheelers as a pilot initiative on Bharathidasan Salai in Tiruchi does not seem to have brought about the much needed lane discipline among motorists despite the best efforts of the traffic police.

City Police Commissioner J. Loganathan, who took charge in July, had outlined a plan in August to introduce exclusive lanes for two- wheelers in some of the arterial roads in the city in an attempt to curb accidents and to bring about lane discipline.
In a city notorious for lax traffic discipline and enforcement, the move was considered a welcome initiative by many.

Subsequently, police identified four arterial road stretches — Bharathidasan Salai (between Head Post Office to MGR statue), Head Post Office to Tiruchi railway junction, MGR statue to Uzhavar Sandhai, and MGR statue to Periyamilaguparai via District Collectorate — for creating to exclusive two wheeler lanes.

As a pilot initiative, markings for the two-wheelers lanes were made on both sides of Bharathidasan Salai and the traffic police started asking two-wheeler riders to ride within the lane.

After some initial enthusiasm, several two-wheeler riders could be seen riding outside the lane, which, some feel, were too narrow for the heavy two wheeler traffic in the city.

Some others complained about vehicles being parked in front of commercial establishments on the road, occupying the lane space.

“It is a bit difficult when all two-wheelers are moving on the narrow lane. We need to have some more space. Besides, no vehicle should be allowed to be parked on the lane,” said Vignesh, a young engineering graduate.

“It is a good initiative, but apparently there is lack of cooperation from motorists,” observed M. Sekaran, president, Federation of Consumers and Service Organisations and member of the District Road Safety Council.

Besides, the lanes were not adequate for two-wheeler population, which was the highest in the city. The city does not have wide enough roads for such exclusive lanes for two wheelers, he said pointing out that Bharathidasan Salai was one of the widest in the city and even here it was difficult to implement the concept.

Mr. Sekaran suggested that the city police could instead try and introduce bicycle lanes.

“Even I would like to ride a cycle, but am not sure of safety. If there were bicycle lanes, more people will take to them,” he said.

Speaking to The Hindu, Mr. Loganathan did not agree with suggestions that the pilot initiative had not gone down well with the people.

About 80-90% of motorists are using the lanes. We have also deployed police personnel to prevent parking on the lanes. The move will at least help reinforce the norm that two-wheelers should ride on the left side of the road, which will help reduce accidents,” the city police Commissioner contended.

He said the police were studying the issues involved in the pilot initiative and the inputs received from various quarters.

“We are looking at how best to adopt them and take it forward in other parts of the city,” Mr. Loganathan said.

Tiruchi-Karur highway stretch widening to be over by March

Work on widening and strengthening the narrow and accident-prone stretch of road between Tiruchi and Thindukarai on Tiruchi-Karur Highway is expected to be completed by March next.

Although the work, which began in May-end, is scheduled to be completed by November next, efforts are on to complete it ahead of deadline, Collector S. Sivarasu said after inspecting the progress of work on Tuesday.
“So far, 55% of the work has been completed and the remaining works are fast apace. We are targetting to complete the project by March,” he told reporters at the site.

Widening of the 11-km stretch — marked by sharp and dangerous curves — running between the Cauvery and Tiruchi-Karur railway line was taken up after persistent demands from suburban residents as accidents became frequent on the stretch.

The work was sanctioned last year at an estimate of ₹55 crore under the Comprehensive Road Infrastructure Development Programme 2019-20.

The road is being widened from its present width of seven metres to up to 10.5 metres. Some of the dangerous curves will also be straightened.

The project also involves construction of retaining walls for a length of about 1,785 metres, protective walls along the bank of the Cauvery for a length of 3,895 metres, revetment inside the river bund for a length of 350 metres and drains for a length of 971 metres.

Mr. Sivarasu, who also inspected construction of a new bypass road around Manachanallur, said nearly 75% of the work had been completed and the road would be declared open to traffic soon.The bypass runs a length of about 2.64 km and was sanctioned at an estimated cost of ₹25.15 crore.

The greenfield road involved construction of 14 box culverts and three minor bridges. Besides, junction improvements were also made at five places.

Service lane
To a query on land acquisition for laying service lanes along the city stretch of Tiruchi-Thanjavur Highway between Palpannai and Thuvakudi, Mr. Sivarasu said the process would be completed by January. The National Highways Authority of India would take up work on laying the service lanes once 90% of the land was acquired and handed over.

Land acquisition for the semi-ring road between Panchapur on Tiruchi-Madurai Highway and Thindukarai on Tiruchi- Karur Highway would be completed by March. Once the land was acquired, it would take about 24 months for the road to be laid.

Highways officials indicated that tenders for dismantling the old Kollidam bridge would be called soon. A portion of the bridge, which was in disuse after construction of a new bridge, collapsed in August 2018.

Widening the road should be at least until Mukkombu.. and also need a Asphalt road from mukkombu to butterfly park on the other side of the river bank..

Fort station ROB

Heard Corp floats the tender for "repairing" the 150 years old Rob which was damaged heavily during the rain two months before.

However Railway is ready from last 2 year's and alarmed the condition of the ROB but no any response from SG side. Looks SG said due to budget constains (which is only 50crs just a simple ROB) they can't execute the project now (but there are 1000+ crs flyover projects too approved by the same govt ) thus corp went to repair it again . It's located in one of the major link connecting Mainguard gate and Thillainagar ! Yet no any steps taken for the replacement ROB even after it's damaged condition !!

Great govt !!

Looks the flyover length is reduced !
It's going to be only from ITI to BHEL training center. Initially it was upto BHEL police station .

Now seems the flyover ends in front of BHEL main Entrance ! it's going to increase the accidents and not going to solve the purpose

Let them do what ever in their fav places no issues but should give some minimum importance to other places too.

Located in heart of the city ! 150 years old bridge ! Damaged heavily ! Stoped vechicle movements ! but no budget for new bridge !!!

No any steps taken for the 0.66 acre land for completion of Aristo GS ! 6+ years and counting !

Other city's are talks about Bus port project though they have IBT in place but we are yet waiting for IBT kind of stuff around 20+ years !! Being a center place of Tamilnadu and major transit hub in road transport yet no IBT or Bus port !!

pathetic !!
