Chamravattom Bridge/Chamravattam regulator cum Bridge/Chamravattam Project











































The entrance to the "Edavazhi" is almost closed after leaving the old road
"Mathrubhoomi" dated 26th February 2009 with the news about the construction of the Bridgethis picture is taken around 1 year back
This is the same spot that you can see in the picture above. This site is now used for the construction of "shutters" that will be used for blocking the water

Piling work reached almost the eastern boarder of the river


























The Construction work of the prestigious prpoject "Chamravattam Regulator cum Bridge" has started. This bridge is coming across Bharatha Puzha and once it becomes a reality, the travelling distance between Thrissur and Calicut will be reduced by atleast 40Kms. Just imagine the time and fuel it will be saving!! As a native of Chamravattam, Tirur, [This bridge is less than 100 mtrs from my home :) ] i thought it is my resposibility to write the updates about this prestegious project. Aquiring of land for the project had completed months back and al most all the woods standing in the aquired land were removed. Here are some of the pictures of the aquired land now


I shall try my level best to write more about this project and upload more pictures as the work progresses.

Hi Gireesh Thanks for your efforts.

Alfred Thayyur said...

Mr. Gireesh, Can you tell me if there was an old road accross the river before ? if yes why they selected a new area for the bridge ?

Can you please a give detailed idea about this new bridge and what about the connecting roads to National Highway. Is this bridge can withstand the traffic rush ? Thanks for your reply.. Alfred
