BMRCL proposed to acquire land where jumbo attacked CRPF men 7.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The land in the Bhuthanahalli reserve forest, where two CRPF men were trampled to death by a wild elephant on Sunday, was the topic of a heated debate at a high-level meeting held in the Vidhana Soudha on Friday. The meeting was attended by officials from the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) as well as Forest and Urban Development departments. The BMRCL had proposed to acquire the land for setting up a depot for Metro trains. The elephant and its companion — a sub-adult tusker — had reached the reserve forest after crossing the Roerich and Devika Rani Estate, which is spread over 14 acres. The territory between the estate and the CRPF camp, which the BMRCL has proposed to acquire, is an elephant corridor. The corridor has been notified for over two decades as it connects elephants migrating to Tamil Nadu and back, a senior forest official, who attended the meeting, said on condition of anonymity. The Forest Department strongly objected to the BMRCL's proposal but officials from ...

Anti-collision test on Metro North-South corridor soon 5.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
With high-speed tests seeing trains running at 75 kmph on the entire North-South corridor starting Thursday, the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) is gearing up for multiple train anti-collision test before going for service trial runs. "Multiple train test is a crucial step in ensuring that two trains running on a single track will not collide at any given situation. We station a train at random points on the track and run the other train in full speed. The trains are connected to a central control room, which stops the running train at a safer distance from the stationed car," said BMRCLManaging Director Pradeep Singh Kharola. He said the anti-collision test is to ensure that the communication system works in a foolproof manner to prevent accidents. "Multiple trains run on a single track all the time. During peak hours, considering the increase in the frequency of trains, we train the operators to be alert for any eventuality. The communication system is the next layer of protection when ...
