Bad roads: Metro takes potshots at govt agencies 19.7.2017 DNA: Popular News
Taking a dig at road maintaining agencies in the city like Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), and Public Works Department (PWD), the Reliance Infrastructure led Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL) has come up with a social media post that states, “Avoiding potholes has become a dreaded part of commute.” It has further appealed to the public to opt for the ‘Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro-1 corridor’ for a safer and smoother ride. The post is part of MMOPL’s ‘Smooth Metro ride’ campaign. On Tuesday, the official account of Metro-1, tweeted, “Injuries and accidents due to potholes are a common occurrence in our city.

Wanted: Parsi engineer for Mum Metro 2.7.2017 DNA: India
The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC), which is constructing the Colaba-Bandra-Seepz Metro-3 line, has a curious task on its hands. It is currently on the hunt for a 'Parsi civil engineer' to conduct a pre-construction structural survey for the underground metro corridor. Reason? The alignment of the underground Metro-3 corridor at Chira Bazar in south Mumbai runs parallel to a Parsi fire temple. The HP Wadia trust, managing the fire temple, has asked MMRC officials to find a 'Parsi civil engineer' for conducting the survey from inside the temple as non-Parsis are not allowed inside the Parsi fire temple. The trust has conveyed to MMRC that a non-Parsi civil engineer will not be allowed to enter the fire temple. This in accordance with the prevailing rituals of the Parsi community, they have said, sending MMRC officials into a tizzy. The MMRC is going to start with the tunnelling work for the underground corridor in October, for which tunnel boring machines (TBMs) will be shipped from China from July ...

Mumbai receives heavy rains 26.6.2017 DNA: India
Mumbai witnessed its first heavy downpour of the season. It began raining from Saturday night and continued till Sunday morning, leaving the city and its adjoining areas waterlogged. Apart from the chronically waterlogged spots like Hindmata in Parel, and Kings Circle among others, Cuffe Parade and Dahisar are also emerging as such zones, primarily due to the Metro construction work. At Cuffe Parade, outside Dalamal Park, and at Anand Nagar in Dahisar East, water had collected up to three feet above the ground, leaving the residents frustrated. "Cuffe Parade hasn't flooded in the last 30 years. It is only due to MMRDA's Metro construction that storm water drains were damaged, which caused waterlogging," said Robin Jaisinghania a resident of Cuffe Parade. Deputy Municipal Commissioner, Sudhir Naik, said that drains in Mumbai cannot handle rains above 50 mm per hour and due to the topography of the city, flooding is bound to occur in certain parts of the city. Not only Mumbai, even Thane received 204 mm ...

Is the city ready for monsoons? 24.6.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
While heavy showers are yet to hit the city, several areas witnessed water-logging and long traffic jams after only moderate showers last week. The Brihanumbai Municipal Corporations (BMC)'s pre-monsoon preparations have already failed to inspire any confidence, raising doubts about how prepared Mumbai is for the rains to come. DNA takes a close look at the quality of the city's pre-monsoon preparations, such as crucial nullah de-silting and road repair works that the BMC is expected to carry out across the city, with a special focus on the measures in place at chronic flooding spots. Work on removal of encroachments for nullah widening being caught up in jurisdictional wrangles between agencies is also a cause of concern. During the first showers, the city witnessed water logging on the Jogeshwari-Vikroli Link Road at SEEPZ, exposing the hollow promises from agencies like the BMC that Mumbai would be free from water-logging this monsoon. Water-logging at SEEPZ was blamed on the metro car-shed debris ...
