Work in progress: The Rangarajapuram flyover is expected to ease congestion in Kodambakkam, T. Nagar and adjoining areas.
CHENNAI: Work on the flyover at Rangarajapuram will be completed by November-end, Mayor M. Subramanian said on Tuesday.
Inspecting work on the facility, he said coordination meetings would be organised with railway officials this week to ensure speedy completion and optimum utilisation of the project, being implemented jointly by the Corporation and Southern Railway.
Mr.Subramanian said steps were being taken to complete ramp works before the onset of the northeast monsoon. Over 50 per cent of the work on the ramp on Bazullah Road side had been completed. Work on the ramp towards the Kodambakkam station side would start soon. Work on shifting of sewer network in the area had been completed after payment of Rs.1.17 crore to Chennai Metrowater. Work on realignment of electricity cables had been completed by making a payment of Rs.21 lakh to Tamil Nadu Electricity Board.
The flyover was being constructed at a cost of Rs.23.76 crore. The 962-metre-long flyover would have three arms. The arm towards Bazullah Road is 264 metres in length and 303 metres on the Rangarajapuram side. The arm on the side of Kodambakkam railway station is 297 metres. Southern Railway is constructing a bowstring bridge over the track. So far, work on 98 piles, 22 piers and 14 deck slabs is over. Work order for the construction of the flyover was issued in January 2008.
