Govt mulls copter service from IGIA to NCR 5.11.2017 DNA: Top News
It takes almost the same time to fly to Delhi from other metro cities and to travel on road from one spot to the other within the National Capital Region (NCR). Considering the size of the region as well as its traffic problems, the Centre is now exploring the possibility for air travellers to avail helicopter services from the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) to satellite cities such as Gurugram, Noida, Faridabad, and Ghaziabad. Civil Aviation Ministry Secretary Rajiv Nayan Choubey has asked the airport operator, Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), to explore the possibility of providing space for helicopters within the Delhi airports, so that direct connectivity can be provided to air travellers. The move will help commuters bypass the cumbersome traffic congestion and reach their respective destinations within a much shorter time. If successful, the plan will be replicated in three other metropolitan cities — Mumbai, Chennai, and Kolkata. "This will be a big relief for frequent ...

SoBo in a jam: No respite for residents from traffic, parking related issues 28.10.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Colaba and Marine Drive are perpetually crowded with tourists and vehicles. The area is home to several landmarks and often sees VIP movement. However, residents of the area say they are being forced to bear the brunt of several traffic and parking related issues, and the authorities have failed to address these issues raised by them. They claim follow-ups have elicited little response. The residents have been continuously complaining about congestion on the roads, double parking, illegal parking, motorists violating traffic rules and vagrants on the footpath. But now the signboards of roads have been also uprooted and the BMC has pasted 'free parking' posters on no-entry signs, that has allowed double parking on both sides of the lanes in these areas. According to the residents of these areas, what has worsened the situation is constant road development and lack of traffic discipline, coupled with poor vigilance and monitoring by traffic authorities. Most of the signboards have been uprooted by ...

No parking next to South Mumbai railway stations 14.10.2017 DNA: Money
No parking on road next to the railway stations — this is what the audit report of Western Railway (WR), which chalks out improvement needed at railway stations, says. The report was commissioned after the Elphinstone Bridge tragedy. Railway officials say that they are looking at implementing this mainly in south Mumbai, namely at Churchgate, Marine Lines, Charni Road and Grant Road stations initially as these are heavily used during peak hours. The 200-page audit report of 36 stations was submitted on Friday night to the General Manager of WR, AK Gupta. As per its findings, the railway authorities want the Traffic Police to remove illegal parking from approach roads leading to the railway stations. "We have identified that there are many vehicles, including taxis, parked on road. We want these removed so that there is no congestion outside the platforms," said a WR official. WR authorities feel that these parked vehicles need to be properly aligned so that commuters can move unhindered. As research, the ...

Can't stop construction, people should 'compromise and sacrifice' for 'essential' Metro: Bombay HC 12.10.2017 DNA: Top News
The Bombay High Court today said it cannot put a permanent stop to the Metro III project as it is essential for decongestion of roads and hence people should "compromise and sacrifice" and put up with the problems created due to the construction work. A division bench of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice NM Jamdar was hearing a bunch of petitions claiming that the construction activity for the project was resulting in noise pollution in the areas concerned. Last month, the court had refused to allow the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MMRCL) the use of heavy machinery or transportation vehicles at night for the Metro III line work. The MMRCL had sought the court's permission to bring heavy vehicles to construction sites in South Mumbai "during the night hours to transport construction material and debris". Advocate General Ashutosh Kumbakoni today sought that the court reconsider the issue and said, "The nature of machinery, equipment and material that needs to be brought in are heavy and ...
