Sungam Bypass Road in Coimbatore is being widened

The Valankulam road (Sungam Bypass road) extension project in Coimbatore has been completed to about 35% of its original length by the State Highways department and Coimbatore City Municipal Corporation (CCMC). In front of the bank of the Valankulam tank, where beautification projects are being carried out as part of the Smart City Projects, the authorities are extending the road on one side and erecting retaining walls at a cost of roughly INR 120 million. Around 58 tamarind trees will be cut down to make way for the extension project.

In order to prevent frequent accidents, the department has also planned to build a 500 metre service road from Sungam Junction to Sivaram Nagar via Nehru Park and has asked the CCMC to pave a service road from Sivaram Nagar to Shanmuga Nagar via Pari Nagar. The idea was approved by the city authority, and work will shortly start.

Approximately 1,600 metre of the Sungam Bypass Road between Sivaram Nagar and the Valankulam Boat House Road are being widened by about 5 metres on one side of the road, and concrete retaining walls are being built at an estimated cost of INR 10 million, according to a senior official from the SH department.

“The Sungam Bypass Road is being enlarged as a result of increased traffic congestion caused by the development of the Valankulam water body’s coastlines under the Smart City Projects. A pedestrian route and parking spaces will be used on some of the enlarged areas. The project is currently about 35% finished, and the work will be finished by March 2023, the official stated.

According to CCMC sources, the municipal organisation would pave a service road that is roughly 520 metre long and 6 metre broad for INR 5.2 million. The route, which starts at Sivaram Nagar, will come to a finish at Shanmuga Nagar on the Sungam Bypass, next to the KTM showroom.
