Mumbai: Motorists to get ROBbed of road space on bridges 6.8.2018 DNA: Top News
Tired of the roadway being eaten up by Metro construction? Exhausted with detours forced by Delisle Bridge closure? Widen your patience, motorists, for the road is only getting narrower from here. The edges of the city's road overbridges (ROBs) supervised by the suburban railways, which are currently cantilevered footpaths, will be snipped and rebuilt on the motorable part of the bridge road, to give them them more stability. The move follows the collapse of a cantilevered fringe of Gokhale Bridge in Andheri on July 3, which claimed two lives. The width of the road on bridges is, therefore, set to get smaller, as the pavements move in. Western as well Central Railway officials said they would be shutting down the cantilevered portions of their respective overbridges soon for the reconstruction. While WR has identified seven ROBs where the footpaths extend out from the brink of the bridge unsupported, the Central Railway is yet to make the list public. WR's seven RoBs are Kennedy and Carol bridges at ...

The Maratha quota battle received mixed response in Mumbai as most of the local trains were running normally with no or little road disruptions reported on Wednesday morning.

DNA SPECIAL: Expect Mumbai jam by rail & road, soon 25.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Mumbaikars have a tough two to three years ahead of them as authorities consider shutting down more Road Overbridges (ROBs) and Foot Overbridges (FOBs) to repair or rebuild them. The city is already choked by the serpentine snarls caused by Metro works, and now train commute runs the risk of death by an Elphinstone Station-like stampede. Chaos ensued on Tuesday morning as rush hour commuters and pedestrians jostled to cross from east to west as Delisle Bridge was closed to motorists and pedestrians. BMC, Railways and IIT Bombay — whose teams are inspecting all ROBs in the city — have identified five dangerous ROBs on Western Railways (WR) which may need to be shut temporarily for repairs or demolished to be rebuilt completely. These include Ferere ROB in Grant Road, Belasis ROB at Mumbai Central, Tilak ROB at Dadar, Carol ROB at Prabhadevi and one more at Mahalaxmi."We are trying to stagger the time period for carrying out repair work or demolishing these bridges," said a senior railway official "There ...

The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRCL) on Friday urged the Bombay High Court to hear a petition filed by the members of the Parsi community regarding work near two fire temples, so that tunnelling work for Metro 3 could resume.  “We are running against time and the work (underground work) has reached very close,” Senior advocate Shrihari Aney, appearing for the corporation, said while informing the Bombay High Court that tunnelling work has reached near the two Fire Temples in Kalbadevi.
