Trichy-Lalgudi highway set for redevelopment

The accident-prone section of the old National Highway (NH 81) that connects Trichy with the rural villages around Lalgudi town has been the subject of a significant reconstruction initiative by the state highway department's national roads arm. The former NH segment, which is 39 km long and was turned over to the state highways department for maintenance, has been replaced by a new highway built by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) with a trumpet interchange between Trichy and Chidambaram.

The state highway department's NH wing has received a one-time enhancement cash of 475 million from the NHAI Villupuram Project Implementation Unit (PIU) for the development of the former NH 81. The state highways department created a proposal to revamp the 39 km stretch, especially the 17 km section that is prone to accidents between the Number 1 tollgate on the outskirts of Trichy city and Lalgudi town.

To complete the road redevelopment work by October 2023, the state roads department has chosen a contractor.

The plan states that the villages of Thalakudi, Mela Valadi, Keezha Valadi, Mandurai, and Angarai will all receive road widening work. Between Trichy and Lalgudi, the former NH 81's roadway will be enlarged in these communities from 7 to 10 metres. "To increase road safety, the severe curves must be straightened throughout the stretch's redevelopment, and the roadway must be enlarged wherever it is practical. Also, since there have been tragic incidents on the motorway in recent weeks, road safety signs should be put "An activist named P Aiyarappan remarked.

"While we were only able to extend a short section of the ancient NH, we have plans to expand this work in the upcoming phase. On the motorway, we'll also spread a new bituminous layer. The NHAI will formally complete the handing over procedure after the proposed work on the old NH 81 is finished "an official source stated.
