Metro-2B leaves 'Smart BKC' plan in limbo 5.9.2017 DNA: Top News
Poor planning has left officials of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) in a dilemma, as two projects proposed by the agency— the 'Smart BKC' project and the DN Nagar-BKC-Mandale Metro-2B project — have clashed with each other, forcing it to rethink the former project. Almost three years after conceptualisation, designing and tendering of a project to turn Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) into a mini smart city, the project will now remain in limbo, as MMRDA officials have realised that its proposed features such as Wi-Fi hotspots, solar powered street lights and advanced CCTV cameras will now have to make way for the proposed Metro-2B project. This is because, Metro-2B will pass through the median of BKC, that is the central divider of the road, and the Smart BKC features are proposed to be installed on the median. This has resulted in the alignment of the Metro-2B project clashing with the Smart BKC plan. "We are working with new designs and plans, that will have to be tweaked ...

'Cops not measuring noise levels' 2.9.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Anti-noise pollution activists are irked that they have not seen Mumbai police officers take down noise level readings, or direct revellers to lower the din during visarjan. Earlier, they had found that noise levels on the first of day of Ganesh immersions were higher than those recorded on the last day of immersions in 2016. Activist Sumaira Abdulali says that she found that the highest noise levels on the seventh day of immersion (Thursday) were recorded at Worli flyover, and that too in the presence of cops. She measured them at 111.5dB. "I did not come across any cops recording noise levels on the second day as well as the seventh day," says the convenor of Awaaz Foundation, "This is surprising as they are supposed to be recording them and if found high, they should ask revellers to lower volumes." However DCP (Operations) Rashmi Karandikar, refuted the claims, saying that they had been taking readings and will send them to the court. Abdulali also found that at many processions, participants would ...

A day after heavy rains crippled Mumbai, fewer vehicles and pedestrian movement was witnessed on Wednesday.

Urban roads littered with new potholes 31.8.2017 DNA: Money
Your drive on the city's Western (WUR) and Eastern Urban Roads (EUR) is set to get bumpier owing to the new potholes on both roads. After the heavy rainfall on Monday night and Tuesday, new pothole spots have emerged on both the crucial roads that connect the city to western and central suburbs. Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has said that it is in the process of filling them up but would require a dry spell for filling the potholes. On Wednesday, officials from the traffic department and MMRDA conducted a joint visit to the roads to identify the repair work required to keep traffic on both roads smooth. A senior MMRDA official said, "We have identified around 10 stretches on the Eastern Urban Road wherein new potholes have emerged. Our contractor is already in the process of filling them up considering the availability of a dry spell." On Western Urban Road too, several new stretches have been identified and MMRDA claims to have started the work for filling up these ...

Pothole fix: MMRDA gets innovative with old tyres 20.8.2017 DNA: Money
Now, you can donate your old or used vehicle tyres to the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), who has been using these to fill up potholes at selected stretches on Western Urban Road. In an eco-friendly move, old tyres donated by individuals were used to fill up potholes. Potholes were filled up using old tyres which are first crushed and segregated. The fine quality rubber crumb is collected and mixed with bitumen which is then used for surfacing of the potholed stretch. If found satisfactory, the MMRDA plans to ask its contractors to use the same mixture in the future. Potholes were filled on three flyovers including Dahisar, Borivli, and Kherwadi flyover at Bandra which were done by a private firm as a part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) for free. A senior MMRDA, official, said, "We had got a request from a firm named CEAT tyres and had taken our consent to use the same mixture to fill up potholes on Western Urban Road. This mixture of using old tyres is not a new ...
