HC refuses to stop tree felling for Metro 3 27.5.2017 DNA: Opinion
The Bombay High Court on Friday did not restrain the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MMRCL), from cutting trees to construct stations for the Metro 3 project, between Colaba and Seepz. A vacation bench of Justice Prakash Naik and Justice MS Karnik primarily accepted the argument put forth by MMRCL and also BMC that it was obeying the previous order of the high court, and cutting only those trees for which permissions are obtained. The court while hearing a plea filed by a Churchgate resident who claimed that authorities were arbitrary cutting trees and even those which were not supposed to are being felled. MMRCL counsel advocate Mustafa Doctor denied the allegations and said the petitioners' apprehensions were misconceived. Trees along the Metro-3 site had been marked differently by the BMC to identify those that are to be felled, or transplanted. BMC counsel advocate Anil Sakhre submitted a plan detailing the marks or the numbers given to such trees. Sakhre submitted earlier this week. BMC ...

"Hawai chappal wale ko hawai jahaj main bithana hain (those wearing bathroom slippers have to be taken in an aeroplane)"< says Jayant Sinha, minister of state for civil aviation, on the government's intent to make flying affordable. Investment revival, especially in the highway and port sectors, is another plank of the Narendra Modi government's transport policy, the overall theme being improving of connectivity through better infrastructure. Enabling policies in aviation, along with a window provided by cheaper fuel prices, has allowed India to become the third largest market for domestic passengers, behind America and China. However, infrastructure bottlenecks are an issue.The government's Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS) in aviation, to put previously unconnected cities on the map, is finally shiwing signs of picking up. Through viability gap funding, financed from a levy on trunk routes, the government aims to entice airline operators to start operations on routes considered

Plan to create a Metro network of 200 km: UPS Madan 21.5.2017 DNA: India
How big an undertaking is the Metro project? In Mumbai, more than 12 million people (78 per cent of the city's total population) use public transport daily. Of this, 52 per cent travel by train and 26 per cent by bus. The existing suburban rail system is under extreme pressure and the role of buses is limited to providing feeder services to suburban railways. There are constraints to expand the existing road and rail network capacity. Many pockets in the city and suburbs are not served by rail. Our plan is to create a Metro network of about 200 km. The Metro will connect areas like Lokhandwala in Andheri, Bandra Kurla Complex, Powai, Ghodbunder Road, among others. Are you eyeing a completion date? There are several lines currently under construction, each having its own deadline. We are working towards making all corridors ready by 2022. In fact, a few Metro lines will be functional before 2022. How will it help citizens? Due to an inadequate Mass Transit System, the share of public transport has ...
