Thanks for the update. Not sure why even the print media (especially tamil newspapers) are not publishing any updates regarding the Vellalore Integrated bus stand.
If the security guys are not allowing near the building, then using drone video camera will be the best option if we really need the current status update. As if its a millitary establishment, the security personnel are preventing the people to take a look at the project which is constructed for public use.
Exactly. So stupid

Heard that SPV is visiting the area very frequently and bought plenty of lands. He and his BIL is taking full control of the bus stand related activities as I heard.

Yesterday, travelled from Podanur to Pollachi through Chettipalayam, Arasampalayam, Myleripalayam to see the progress of railway electrification works between Podanur & Pollachi.
Before the Vellalore Government vermicompost plant, I saw the construction activities (with pillars) on the left side of the road some 150 Meters (approx.) from the main road. Is that the location of the Vellalore Integrated bus stand ?

Since the Integrated bust stand is coming up at Vellalore, Podanur railway junction (which is very near to VIBT) has to be developed as a second terminal for operating more originating express / passenger trains and more passenger trains / MEMUs are needed in Palani - Pollachi - Podanur - Coimbatore - Mettupalayam and Palakkad - Podanur - Coimbatore - Irugur - Tiruppur - Erode sections. Circular trains in Podanur - Irugur - Singanallur - Peelamedu - Coimbatore North - Coimbatore JN - Podanur and in other direction can also be tried out by Railways.


Road widening between Podanur and Chettipalyam was happening at a good pace. In some stretches, the width was similar to proper 4 lane road.

Almost a year after it announced ‘Mission 365’ to complete in a year the ₹168-crore integrated bus stand project in Vellalore, the Coimbatore Corporation, it appears, has made little progress.

The reasons for the slow progress were the civic body’s financial constraints and the title deed of the land where the bus stand was coming up showing Tamil Nadu Water Supply and Drainage Board as the owner, said sources familiar with the developments, adding that the two issues were linked.


At the time of finalising the project, the Corporation had said that the State Government would finance 50% of the project cost and it would meet the rest by raising a loan with HUDCO.

As it began construction and made some progress, the Corporation approached the Government for funds to be told that the civic body spend its share first and that the Government would chip in after sometime.


So, when the civic body approached HUDCO for loan, it discovered that it was seeking loan for a project on a land whose records showed that the TWAD Board was the owner, the sources said.

And, the TWAD Board was the owner of the land because after it executed more than 30 years ago the underground drainage scheme for the then Corporation covering Gandhipuram, R.S. Puram and a few other areas in core city, it did not go ahead and have the revenue records changed to show that the Corporation was the owner.

The TWAD Board had worked on the land that measured 650 acre spread over two villages – Kurichi and Vellalore. While it managed to change the name in the part of the land that fell in Vellalore village it could not get in changed in the Kurichi part of the land and that was what was now causing the delay for the Corporation to tap HUDCO for funds, the sources explained

Senior officials said the Corporation had begun steps to have the revenue records changed so that the records reflected its ownership and it could avail of the loan.

Any updates on 80 feet road? Till which place it was completed so far?
Only aggregate stones are filled up until sakthi school chettipalayam road. Tar work is yet to be started. I've heard works seems to be on held for more than 15 days and will be resumed after pongal. Also little bridges are getting constructed near podanur-eachanari road. And also from what I saw I don't think It looks like a 80 feet road. 40-50 feet maximum from my rough calculation.

In the video, still it is called Nagara Perundhu Nilayam (Town Bus Stand)?

It should be Managara Perundhu Nilayam (City Bus Stand).

Front elevation of the main building in the video doesn't look like the one in the post below. Also the construction picture below doesn't match with one in the video.

The size of the bus stand will be massive in real time. We will hold the “Asia’s largest bus terminal” status for quite sometime
