Bro, two doubts 1. If the old wastes cleared by biomining, what about the new wastes? What will the government do with the daily wastes after the construction of bus stand. It seems Coimbatore producing 600 tonnes of wastes daily what about that? 2. After completion of bus stand can the corporation sell the near by lands that belong to them. If yes then they can easily break even the project cost?

Corpn to sign new contract with pvt firm to manage waste




Route cleared, no more hinderance for IBT construction



https://m.timesofindia.com/city/coimbatore/corpn-to-sign-new-contract-with-pvt-firm-to-manage-waste/amp_articleshow/74274659.cms


Coimbatore: The city corporation is planning to sign a new agreement with the private company that is treating a portion of the solid wastes generated in the city after coming to know that a part of the land at Vellalore it had leased to the company has been taken up for constructing the integrated bus stand.

“We are working to identify the exact portion of the leased area that falls under the area chosen to construct the bus stand. Once the land is identified, we plan to rewrite the agreement signed with the Coimbatore Integrated Waste Management Company Private Limited,” said a corporation official. “The overlapping area would not be more than five cents and has no civil structure, apart from the special school run for the children of those working in the dump yard. It can be shifted as there is sufficient space available adjacent to it.”

The agreement with the company ends in 2026, the official said. “The corporation does not want to make changes in the bus stand design only because of the agreement, which ends in a few years.”

The issue came to light recently after the company was asked to vacate the portion of land to begin construction work. The firm filed a complaint with the corporation office and with the collector’s office. The corporation, in 2008, had leased out 181 acres of land to the company for carrying out the waste management project.

Bus stand project: Corporation studying land lease agreement

Special Correspondent
The Coimbatore Corporation was studying the lease agreement it had signed with the Coimbatore Integrated Waste Management Company Pvt. Ltd. to explore ways to proceed with the construction of the integrated bus stand project in Vellalore.

The Corporation had signed the lease agreement with the company in October 2008 leasing 180-odd acre in Vellalore to help the latter establish a waste processing plant. The lease was for 20 years starting from the date the company would commence operations.

As the company had started operations in April 2011, the land would be with the company till March 2031.

While the land was in the company’s possession, the Corporation had a few weeks ago launched the project at ₹ 168 crore to construct the bus stand on 60 acre, a parcel of land that fell within the leased 180-plus acre.

After The Hindu reported the issue, the Corporation was looking into the issue by studying the lease document.

It would then engage with the company to explore ways to get back the land – either by signing a fresh lease agreement or trading equal measurement of land for the 60 acre or some such means, said an officer.

An argument that the Corporation would advance was that the company had not used most of the land in question and whatever structures it had erected were temporary and therefore it should not be difficult for the company to part with the land.

The officer said after studying the lease agreement, the Corporation would talk to the company in the next couple of weeks, for it did not want the lease agreement to be an irritant in the bus stand project.

Sarathy sir,

Yes, my friend’s family is living in that area. Got this info from them.

Also some building/structures to be demolished and dumps to be cleared to start the construction. Looks like actual work will take few months.

Work to convey treated sewage from Ukkadam to Vellalore begins


Coimbatore Corporation has begun work to convey the sewage treated at the Ukkadam sewage treatment plant to Vellalore.

The Corporation officials familiar with the development say the civic body is building a collection well to hold 10 lakh litre treated sewage and to start laying pipeline for 1.30 km to convey the treated sewage to Vellalore.

The cost of the project is ₹ 2.50 crore.

The pipeline to be laid will convey the sewage from the treatment plant to Kulandai Gounder Street, where an old pipeline exists till Vellalore.

In Vellalore, the Corporation is building a four-lakh-litre sump to store the water, which it will use to water plants and to put out flames during fire breakouts.

The Corporation also plants to sell the surplus water to private establishments like golf course or industries that may be interested.

The officials say that as part of the work, the Corporation will also be repairing a 400 – 500m stretch of the pipeline near the newly constructed Podanur bridge. The pipeline was damaged during the bridge construction.

The Corporation has asked the Southern Railway for the pipeline design and as per the Railway’s specification, it will carry out the work. The completion of the work will minimise the Corporation’s reliance on fire tenders from the Fire and Rescue Services to douse fire during accidents at the dump yard.

The Corporation had first mooted the proposal to sell the treated sewage in 2015 by calling for an expression of interest. After poor response and a two-year delay, the Corporation in 2017 initiated the project to convey the treated sewage to Vellalore.

Plans afoot to widen roads to bus terminal


Coimbatore: The city corporation is likely to conduct a meeting with stakeholders to develop access roads and other infrastructures around the integrated bus stand at Vellalore in the city.

“Based on the direction from district collector K Rajamani, the corporation would be conducting a meeting with the stakeholders, including officials from Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation (TNSTC). Following the meeting, steps will be taken to widen the access roads,” a corporation source said.

But, ideally the corporation should have conducted the meeting before floating the tender or at least before commencing the construction work of the bus stand, city-based activists opined. About a couple of months ago, state municipal administration minister SP Velumani laid the foundation stone to start the construction work. The bus stand is coming up on 60 acres near the dump yard at the cost of Rs 164.81 crore.

K Kathirmathiyon of Coimbatore Consumer Cause said, “Ideally before constructing the bus stand, the corporation should have known the number of buses that would be shifted to the integrated bus stand and how viable it is to integrate all the bus stands. Because, the high court direction states that all the buses plying to locations within 55km should start only from Gandhipuram bus stand.”

I think we must ask MR Velumani
I heard that the work already started. Couple of weeks back, Corp Commissioner visited the site and urged the team to finish the work before 2021 December.

Many People identified the pillar structure is kind of visible from outside.But not sure if it is for the bus stand or for the compost plant.

Yes. We can able to see some works going on but not that huge. Foundation for dumpyard bio mining process also laid on June 5 by velumani but almost a month gone, nothing has happened in action! And also a huge water tank construction is completed. They say it's water storage for construction and labour requirements, I don't how authentic it is coz there are lot of water tanks inside the dump yard to control dump fire. Few days back I went inside there to clarify the doubts and asked the security there about the ongoing construction. He said it's bus stand work only. But it seems bit manipulating. I'm not able to get an assured feeling from what's going on yet.
