Minister for municipal administration, urban and water supply K N Nehru on Saturday inspected Chathiram bus terminus, which has been renovated under the smart cities mission programme.
Chief minister M K Stalin will inaugurate the bus terminus, which is in the final leg of redevelopment at a cost of Rs 18.80 crore, along with other infrastructure projects on December 30.
The redeveloped terminus has two terminals to halt city and mofussil buses. The bus stand will have 54 shops, a restaurant and a two-wheeler parking lot. Inspecting the final phase of work, the minister said that additional retiring rooms for the transport corporation staff will be built. “As a part of the CM’s visit, a GO for releasing Rs 400 crore towards the integrated bus terminus will be released in the first phase. An integrated vegetable market is also planned. The CM will lay the foundation stone for the new terminus,” the minister said.
Two elevated corridors proposed for the city between Cauvery bridge-Odathurai bridge intersection and Mallachipuram via Kalaignar Arivalayam and between Melachinthamani and Trichy railway Junction via Head post office are likely to be announced by the chief minister during his visit to the city.
“The zoological park proposal is revived. We will facilitate water connection. The minister concerned and senior forest officials have promised to open the facility by the next year,” K N Nehru said, reacting to the status of the long-pending M R Palayam zoo.
Trichy Corporation sources said that the Rockfort hillock illumination project, a part of the heritage tourism development proposal under the smart cities mission, may also be commissioned by the CM.
The process of fixing 108 multicolour LED floodlights around the hillock was already completed and a trial run was done. However, officials said that the Teppakulam laser light and sound show project, another component of the heritage tourism proposal, will take a few more weeks to get commissioned.
