Given the amount of employment oppurtunities in OMR (Taramani to Siruseri), commercial & residential developments (with all those skyscrapers coming up), is OMR the new CBD in making (probably in another 10 years)?

I saw similar comment from a senior member in another forum. Thats why thought of initiating this thread to get opinions of others.

    I can confirm.

    Transmission Pipes have been laid in Thiruporur, Muttukadu, Kelambakkam and Sholinganallur.

    The main distribution pipe crosses Buckingham Cannal at following locations:

    Sholinganallur - connected to underground distribution station at Akkarai.
    Muttukadu - pipe crosses next to Muttukadu bridge.
    Thiruporur

    Underground distribution station/Sump & pumping stations has been built and operating at following location:

    Akkarai
    Nemilli
    Kelambakkam
    Velachery
    Thiruvanmayur

    What is now being built is a street & house level comprehensive water supply pipes. Tender for this has concluded last month.

  • economist
    you have given details of where the pipeline of desalination water runs through from nimelli and where power stations are operating.
    does that mean all the areas where the pipelines are going through also will recieve the water.
    do you mean tiruporur,mutukadu,kelambakam,and sholi ..all will get desal water

    There is no power station as you have mentioned.

    I have mention about the location of Distribution station & pumping stations.

    The purpouse of a distribution station is to distribute water to the surrounding area.

    Some areas like Kelambakkam currently does not have "comprehensive" street level water supply
    Pipes and connection until they get that water cannot reach all properties.

    Sholinganallur, Karrapakkam, perungudi, Thorapakkam etc has some old panchayath based distribution net work that is insufficient so CMWSSB is working to deliver "comprehensive" water & Sewage Network to distribute water to homes on street level.

    They have releases tenders for comprehensive street level water supply work.( please refer to the tender & Drawings I have attached in Shol thread)

    It is a step by step process.

    Established networks (eg: Thruvanmayur & Velacheri) SEZ and commercial establishments, some townships will be first to get water (with in few weeks)

    Remaining will have to wait for completion of street level delivery network to be established.

    Some areas this process has started ( once again refer to attachment in Shol thread.

  • Nemili water:

    Some area = next week

    Some area = 1-2 years

    Some area = 2-4 years.

    The above is dictated by the availability of "street level comprehensive network"

    That is established in Velachery,Thiruvanmayur etc and it is being rolled out in certain other areas.

  • As per

    http://http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=516817&page=445

    Huge pipe lines are being laid from Nemmeli Desal palnt to ECR OMR Link Road Junctions and then taken to OMR.

    Many Residential projects developers were asked to sign affidavits that they would buy the desal water from Nemmeli plant when they applied for Planning Permission.

    They will be charged at CMWSSB purchase rate from VA Tech Wabag + conveyance fee.

  • As Economist mentioned, water distribution for sorrounding areas are primary one where pipeline network exists either in township or streets for that matter and surplus water will be pumped to well established pipeline networks of Karappakkam,VELACHERRY,Thuraipakkam ,Shol etc as it crosses through BC and Back water

    As such CMWSSB connection existing and connected with each street and house in City is not existing in most part of OMR stretch in both sides in small congested lanes and roads

    But township projects and builders projects which are closeby with such distribution network will even lay pipeline at their cost to get it connected and linked instead of waiting for Govt sponsored networks if there is a huge delay.

    Besides Govt is mulling idea of augmenting the capacity once the trail run startsby March and consumption and generation pattern is observed in Desalination Plant.

    As such water quality will be far better than Kilpauk water tank distribution and IndraNagar tank with chlorination but with lot of sediments and sands

    IMHO, first Perungudi to Shols will get piped water, then probably semmanchery to navalur, then siruseri and only after that Kelambakkam..

    Thiruvanmiyur to kelambakkam is over 20km, long way for kels to get piped water. Correct me if i am wrong friends...

  • Another OMR related news from last week. Looks like most of 1500 acres acquired for Japanese township in OMR.

    Japanese township to be ready by 2014 - The New Indian Express

    Is it possible to change the title of the thread to "OMR - Updates & Future Potential" as this thread already has lots of discussions around these?

  • Great News to OMR loves....

    Question: Is this township for Japanese living or plan to start up new plants. Currently automobiles are around oragadam/ sriperumbudur.. Recent news says few opening to catch around Manimangalam - near Tambaram....

    Will this degrade the possibility of oragadam improvement plans or this township is only for Japanese pleasant living and they intended to travel daily to the industrial hub? If so will there be better transport connectivity ( who knows rapid mass transport exclusive for Japanese might come in 5 years - Japanese technology) or existing VK road + ORR (new grid roads) will work for their commute? Any thoughts?
    If this question is not relevant here, please ignore.
