Thiruvanaikovil bridge workto be over within four months

Steps were being taken to complete the construction of a new overbridge across the railway track at Periyar Nagar on Thiruvanaikovil Trunk Road in the city within the next four months, Collector K.Rajamani has said.

About 75 % of the work, being executed on an outlay of ₹ 47 crore, had been completed, Mr.Rajamani said after inspecting the progress of the work on Thursday. The four-lane bridge is being built to replace a narrow two-lane bridge, which has since been demolished. Work gathered pace over the past few months.

The bridge will be 1,430 metres long and 17.20 metres wide.

Mr. Rajamani also inspected other works being executed by the Highways Department, such as the widening of culverts and minor bridges on Nochiyam-Mannachanallur section of Tiruchi-Thuraiyur highway. Minor bridges are being built across the Panguni Vaical and Peruvalaivaical at a total cost of ₹3.15 crore sanctioned under Comprehensive Road Infrastructure Development Programme. Work on construction of the bridge across Panguni Vaical has been completed and approach roads are being laid. Reconstruction of another minor bridge sanctioned at a cost of ₹1 crore under Road Safety Progamme across the Pullampadi Vaical is nearing completion.

Accompanied by Highways and NABARD officials, Mr.Rajamani also inspected construction of a bridge between Thandalaipudur and Thinnakonam.
