Mumbai: Now, Currey Road footpath may be shut 3.8.2018 DNA: Opinion
Looks like the traffic woes and chaos at Lower Parel won't ease anytime soon. Barely a week after Delisle Bridge was shut for public, the Central Railway (CR) now plans to shut the footpaths on Currey Road bridge as they are in a "precarious condition". As part of its ongoing study of all bridges, the CR authorities have found that the footpaths on Currey Road bridge are in a sorry state. "The base of the footpaths on either side is in bad condition. We are working out on the details to shut down the footpath for pedestrians. However, the road will continue to be operational," said a CR official on condition of anonymity. The footpath is narrow but it connects the main entrance of Currey Road railway station.

If the footpath is closed, people will be forced to use the two FOBs on the south end. One FOB connects the west side of the station, while the second one ...

'New AI system may help prevent water logging in cities' 2.7.2018 DNA: India
A team of engineering students has developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that can identify areas prone to water logging, and may help metro cities avoid tedious road congestions caused by monsoon showers. The researchers, including Aman Bansal and Apoorva Gupta from Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology (NSIT) in New Delhi combined rainfall, traffic, and location data to predict the severity of water logging in the vulnerable areas. "In a lot of developing countries, including India, the issue of water logging is persistent. In 2016, the roads of Gurgaon were flooded leading to severely waterlogged streets, which left thousands of people stranded for several hours. In Mumbai too, such incidents are very common," said Rishab Gupta, from NSIT, told PTI. "The damages caused by such occurrences triggered us to find a practical and feasible solution," said Gupta, one of the lead authors of the study that was presented at the Institute of Electricals and Electronics Engineers' (IEEE) 15th ...
