I had moved posts regarding Sriperumpudhur line connectivity from Various new topics to Rail project surveys. But members felt it would be better if the topic name suggests Rail connectivity to Sriperumpudhur. So I have taken all the posts regarding this and created a new topic. Other topics with same content will be removed.

Sriperumbudur (near Chennai) has grown into a major industrial hub.

Also several colleges and institutions have sprung up of late.

Due to this unprecident growth, the bus services are not adequate and commuters are travelling on the roof.

The situation is quite alarming.

The urgency is that a new Rly line between Avadi and Sriperumbudur is to be constructed without any delay.


The following is from the 'Dinamalar' dt 01 Oct., 2007:

It is not enough to have a new line from Avadi only upto Sriperumbudur. It should be extenced to Kanchipuram via Sunkuvarchatram. There is a large Industrial estate near Sunkuvarchatram.

Approximately the distance from Sriperumbudur to Kanchi is 28 Km by road.

The alignment from Sriperumbudur to Kanchi may be alongside the Chennai - Bangalore highway and the line can join the AJJ - Kanchipuram line at Vellaiyan Gate.

If Avadi will be connected with Kanchi by this new line, it would be one of the most revenue earning sector.

Velu wants industry cluster to contribute to Sriperumbudur line

CHENNAI: Sriperumbudur could get on the railway map if the industrial cluster in the area contributes to the project, according to Minister of State for Railways R. Velu.

“Industry partners need to participate in [meeting the] capital costs,” Mr. Velu said. He estimated the cost of the project, which would involve laying a line from Sriperumbudur to Ambattur and Avadi over 40 kilometres, at Rs. 120 crore.

The Minister said the State Government would be responsible for acquiring land and would be asked to contribute a percentage of the cost.

He was speaking on the sidelines of HR Fusion, a seminar on human resources management, organised by the Madras University’s Department of Management Studies.

The four-lane road that served the industrial units in the region had already reached capacity, Mr. Santhanam said. Transporting containers by rail would prove more efficient and cost effective, and industries would value the savings and returns gained.

In fact, Saint Gobain could even double its current rate of transporting 200 containers a month to the north from its Chennai plant, if a good rail system was set up.

Car manufacturer Hyundai is also in the forefront of the demand for rail connectivity for the region.

It has expressed interest in putting up a siding facility at Sriperumbudur. Its cars are now transported by road and from its rail yard at Tiruvallur where it faces a shortage of rakes, according to a senior executive.

Thanks Prakash Ji.
But my request for this line was expressed only in this forum. I have not sent my appeal to SR or to MoSR. Perhaps, they (SR) may be reading postings of this forum. I have a feeling that they do read.

But, there has been immense pressure from people of Kanchi, Sriperumbudur etc. to have a railway line. SR would earn considerable freight revenue too.

Sriperumbudur may lure $4 b investment
Monday, 22 October , 2007, 08:28

Chennai: The areas in and around Chennai and Sriperumbudur are likely to attract a total investment of $4 billion in the next two-three years, according to the Tamil Nadu Information Technology Secretary, Dr C. Chandramouli.

In 2008, the Sriperumbudur area alone is likely to attract an investment of around $1 billion in electronic manufacturing, which is becoming the �sunrise industry for Tamil Nadu, he said at a workshop on �offshoring and outsourcing opportunities from Australia� organised by the Indo-Australian Chamber of Commerce.

Similarly, by 2009, investment worth $3 billion will be pumped in the automobile sector in and around Chennai, he said.

A leading Malaysian auto manufacturer is likely to invest $175 million in Chennai, and an announcement is expected soon, he said without disclosing the company's name.

Avadi - Sriperumbudur new line

Dear Members,

Today's dinamalar states a new line from Avadi to Sriperumbudur will be laid at the cost of Rs.255 crores.

I could see a topic called "New lines from Sriperumbudur being proposed" which I wanted to send reply. But the topic has been locked and not able to send replies to that. So, I have created new topic. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Regards,
Karthik.

I was suggesting that MOSR Velu should convene a meeting with industrialists for cost sharing.

It is good that he has done it. It is good move by him

Hope this new line will be taken up fast and included in the next budget

Role for private sector in rail link to Sriperumbudur

CHENNAI: The Railway Ministry is for providing rail link to Sriperumbudur only through public-private partnership.

In this connection Minister of State for Railways R.Velu here on Monday (22-10-2007) convened a meeting of industrialists in and around Sriperumbudur, and officials of the Southern Railway and the State Industries Department.

Talking to newsmen after the meeting, Mr. Velu said that the Railway Ministry was ready to lay a new broad gauge line from Sriperumbudur to Avadi if the State Government and the industrialists were ready to share the project cost.

As more and more big industries were coming up, the railways had suggested that new railway lines could be laid from Sriperumbudur to Avadi, to Vandalur or Singaperumal Kovil and to Kancheepuram.

The Southern Railway, the Minister said, had already conducted a preliminary survey for the alignment of Avadi-Sriperumbudur line. The total cost of the 27.3 km project worked out to Rs 255 crore, which required about 97.5 hectares of land.

The land acquisition cost alone would come to about Rs 88.5 crore. Now only a single BG line was planned with a provision for one more in future.

The line would be useful for industrial units to move their finished products through rail. Besides, it would help commuting passengers from Sriperumbudur to Chennai and back. Survey was being done for the other two lines.

The Railway Minister said the State Government on its part would convene a meeting of industrialists to discuss the project. Based on the Government’s report, the next step would be taken.

Chennai-Bangalore industrial corridor to boost growth
Chennai | November 02, 2007 6:05:07 PM IST

With plans for a bullet train, a six-lane highway and an extension of the metro rail from Chennai to Bangalore to bring the two cities closer, a proposal to develop an industrial corridor between the two fast-growing cities is expected to give a further fillip to economic growth in southern India.

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Thursday (01 Nov., 2007) welcomed the proposed corridor, mooted by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Muthuvel Karunanidhi to the prime minister on the lines of an industrial corridor planned between Delhi and Mumbai. Under its City Connect programme, the CII has held several discussions with senior officials of the Tamil Nadu government to develop the new corridor.

"The Chennai-Bangalore industrial corridor would go a long way in tapping the potential of the two states to attract investment and help creation of a skilled workforce," Gopal Srinivasan, chairman of the CII's Tamil Nadu Council, said.

"The establishment of such an intra-state corridor would ensure inclusive, sustainable and balanced regional growth," he added.

"Intra-state corridors also help facilitate the convergence of industry verticals. The Bangalore-Chennai corridor would give the much needed impetus to niche areas and help in the promotion of engineering services in a big way, apart from effectively leveraging the strengths of the IT and electronics industry in south India," he pointed out.

Sriperumbudur, to the west of Chennai, is already the most industrialised zone in Tamil Nadu with an array of top automobile majors and other MNCs setting up their manufacturing bases. Sriperumbudur and Chennai are home to 110 automobile and ancillary industries. Tamil Nadu exports auto components worth about $250 million per year.

The government has allocated Rs.3 billion to upgrade two key highways - the industrial artery to Sriperumbudur which is destined to become a six-lane highway and the Rajiv Gandhi Road or the Old Mahabalipuram Road, now known as Chennai's IT highway, says Tamil Nadu's industry secretary Shaktikanta Das.

The Madras Export Processing Zone (MEPZ) has submitted a detailed development plan to the Ministry of Railways for rail connectivity to Sriperumbudur, about 80 km from here.

Approval for a railhead near Sriperumbudur, linking it with south Chennai, and a second line to access Ennore and Chennai ports are in the offing. Two other roads are being made to link SEZs in the Sriperumbudur-Kancheepuram area with the airport.

A third rail line is to link technology parks and IT companies like TCS, Satyam and Wipro along the Rajiv Gandhi Road to Siruseri, a fast-emerging SEZ.

In the offing is also the Rs.50.6 billion Chennai Metro Project to link Chennai to Sriperumbudur.

Mahindra World City, 30 km from Chennai airport, is monitored by the MEPZ and has about 80 companies including the TVS Group and BMW. The companies here hope to export products worth Rs.80 billion by 2012.

Chennai airport is south India's largest airport with more than 270 passenger flights and more than 30 cargo flights out of it every week.

Tamil Nadu has been lobbying for a bullet train between Bangalore and Chennai, 450 km apart, for some years. At present, it takes about four hours by train to travel between the cities.

Karunanidhi to move Centre on rail link for Sriperumbudur

N. Anand

Samsung India’s electronics manufacturing facility launched

ready for production: Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi inaugurating Samsung India’s Electronics manufacturing facility at the SIPCOT Industrial Park at Sriperumbudur on Tuesday.

SRIPERUMBUDUR: Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi on Tuesday said the State Government would take up with the Centre the need for providing rail connectivity to the Sriperumbudur and Oragadum areas in view of the rapid growth of industries there.
Inaugurating Samsung India’s electronics manufacturing facility at SIPCOT Industrial Park, Sriperumbudur, he said National Highways Authority of India officials were being persuaded to take up road improvement works.

Congratulating Samsung India for commencing the project within a year of signing the memorandum of understanding with the Government, he said this showed that his Government followed up all issues and ensured that new industries were able to start production as early as possible. He urged Samsung to speed up the setting up of the production facility in the Special Economic Zone. It would give a boost to exports from the region.

Initiatives


Recognising the importance of skilled manpower for hi-tech industries, Mr. Karunanidhi said various initiatives had been planned in collaboration with industry to improve the infrastructure at industrial training institutes, revise the course content and provide right inputs so that students found placement in industries.

In his message from New Delhi, Union Telecommunications and IT Minister A. Raja said the electronics hardware industry had a bright future. By 2012 India would become a major manufacturing hub.

He cited the improved infrastructure and industrial policy as the reasons for the growth of electronics hardware sector in India in general and Tamil Nadu in particular.

Second facility


H.B. Lee, president and CEO, Samsung South West Asia Regional Headquarters, said: “This is Samsung’s second manufacturing facility in India. This facility has been set up in eight months with the aim of making it a global manufacturing hub. We will leverage the Indian talent along with our proven manufacturing technology to produce world class products from this facility.”
