SPEAK UP: Traffic woes do not cease on BRT corridor even after its demolition 8.5.2017 DNA: India
The Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Corridor has been a perfect example of poor planning and road engineering leading to a traffic mess and being largely accident-prone. The corridor built in 2008 at the cost of Rs 180 crore, ahead of the Commonwealth Games by the Sheila Dikshit government was opposed by experts even then. Years later, the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP promised to get rid of the corridor. However, the dismantling work taken up by the Public Works Department under his government has received flak for doing a shoddy job. The AAP government scrapped the corridor at a cost of around Rs 11 crore. Earlier this week, Delhi LG Anil Baijal sought a detailed report from the Delhi government. The LG wrote to the transport commissioner asking if they followed the laid down procedures in dismantling the corridor. The 6.13 km stretch from Ambedkar Nagar to Moolchand in South Delhi, which was initially built to reduce travel time and ease traffic movement, turned out to be a traffic mess instead. However, ...

L-G seeks report from state on dismantling Bus Rapid Transit corridor 3.5.2017 DNA: Popular News
The poorly dismantled BRT corridor by the Delhi government has been giving nightmares to commuters who hoped for a better situation before it was taken apart. The corridor which was dismantled to ease out the traffic is once again under scanner with Lt Governor Anil Baijal asking for a detailed report from the Delhi government. In a note to the Transport Commissioner, the L-G's office has sought to know whether the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government followed the laid down procedures in dismantling the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor. The Aam Aadmi Party-led Delhi government had dismantled the Moolchand-Ambedkar Nagar BRT corridor, a Rs180-crore traffic project built in 2008, saying it was built without proper planning, but had accepted the concept of such corridors was not bad. "The dismantling of the corridor has not helped in easing out the traffic. Even after the corridor is removed, the stretch has not become jam free. The traffic is poorly managed and the authorities need to be pulled up for it," a ...

Proceedings against coffee planters in BRT tiger reserve stayed 29.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The High Court of Karnataka stayed the proceedings against Emerald Haven Estates Ltd accused of encroaching upon a tiger reserve. The forest department had issued a notice to the company saying that Bedaguli Coffee Estate owned by it had encroached upon 327.1 acres of land inside the Biligiri Ranganatha Swamy Temple (BRT) Wildlife Sanctuary. Hearing the petition, a division bench comprising Chief Justice S K Mukherjee and Justice P S Dinesh Kumar restrained the forest department and the assistant conservator of forest, Chamarajnagar from interfering in the petitioner's plantation activities. Besides cultivating coffee, the estate also grows pepper and certain seasonal fruits and has between 300 and 400 workers. The petitioner had moved the court earlier too challenging the chief conservator of forest's (CCF) notice asking them to vacate the tiger reserve area as their activity was not compatible with the reserve forest area meant for wildlife. However, a division bench, in its order, had said the CCF ...

Eco-sensitive zones around state forest patches being redefined 14.4.2017 Deccan Herald - State
The state forest department and the Ministry of Environment and Forests and Climate Change (MoEFCC) are now redefining the boundaries of eco-sensitive zones around forest patches of Karnataka. So far, of the 39 protected areas in Karnataka, only Bandipur Tiger Reserve had a defined eco-sensitive zone boundary. But soon, nine more will be added. Following the meeting held in February by members of the expert committee of MoEFCC on defining buffer zones, the Karnataka forest department on March 11 sent a proposal to the state and central governments giving a detailed map and areas of the ESZs of nine forest patches — BRT, MM Hills, Bannerghatta, Melkote, Ranganthittu, Chincholi, Bhadra, Ramadevarabetta and Nugu, said a forest department official. The government is still awaiting a response from the Centre on the list of another 15 to define ESZs. "We sent the draft notification to the MoEFCC for its approval in January," the official added. The proposed draft notification has listed Cauvery, ...
