Wayanad: Boost for tigers, loss for humans 21.8.2019
Wayanad: The tigers will get a boost if the Kozhikode-Kollegal NH 766 (earlier NH 212) is closed down as suggested by the Supreme Court. But the development of the entire region would be mauled if the suggestion is implemented. The SC observation came while considering the petitions submitted against the  night traffic ban through the route on August 7. The night traffic through NH 766 and NH  67 (Gundelpett-Ooty road), both passing through the Bandipur wildlife sanctuary, was banned by Manoj Kumar Meena, the then Chamaraj Nagar district collector in Karnataka, on June 3, 2009. Since then the people of the region have been struggling to travel across the forest region at night. The apex court has directed the Ministry of Environment and Forests and Climate Change to file an affidavit within four weeks  on how to improve the alternative route in tune with the width and other features of NH 766, "which may, in the long run, be closed down altogether." The verdict cited section 38V ...

Kochi: Residents blame cops for unscientific routes 21.8.2019
Kochi: Residents of St Benedict Road in Kochi are furious over the over-speeding of buses through the narrow St. Benedict - Paramara Road near Kacherippady after a speeding bus rammed the compound wall of a house on the stretch at around 7 am on Tuesday. The inmates of the house were sitting inside the house that time, and saved themselves. The residents have decided to go for a protest by stopping the buses plying the stretch, if necessary actions are not taken by the authorities. The bus, which first hit a lorry coming in the opposite direction, was driven dangerously, according to police. The residents said such accidents are bound to happen as the narrow road is not suitable for such heavy and dangerous traffic. They said large public transport vehicles are diverted through the narrow road while smaller vehicles are given access to the wider road. This practice should end, they said. Mr M.R. Rajendran Nair, president of Anti-Corruption People's Movement and resident of the area, said the traffic ...

Hyderabad: Traffic jams at U-turns will continue 21.8.2019
Hyderabad: Traffic snarls and unscientific "U" turns are here to stay in the city for at least two more years and at about 48 junctions. The fund-crunched GHMC which relied on municipal bonds has got a major setback. The corporation, in order to expedite the construction of skyways and elevated corridors under Strategic Road Development Plan, had decided to raise Rs 200 crore. However, it has managed to raise only half the amount, which would be sufficient to partly clear the pending land acquisition dues but not enough to pay the agencies that have executed the project. The corporation immediately requires at least another Rs 200 crore to put the project back on track. The civic body staff have now stated that soon all ongoing works spread across the city may come to a grinding halt and all project deadlines would be further extended. A total of Rs 1,000 crore was targeted to be generated through the issue of bonds, based on the corporation"s creditworthiness. The civic body had ...

Chill out in pub city but keep it quiet, guys! 21.8.2019
They are the watering holes of the city, drawing the young by hordes  and contributing immensely to its buzzing nightlife. Today  Pub City Bengaluru has  nearly 700 pubs lining its busy commercial roads like Church Street and Brigade Road in the Central Business District and even the bylanes of its residential neighbourhoods. But while the pubs have  become a part and parcel of the city culture, visited by the young and happening, behind the good times they offer is a story of increasing struggle as the owners try to cope with the rising hostility of people in the residential localities they have moved into and the recent police raids. With the police launching a war on drugs, the pubs are being raided more frequently of late on suspicion of allowing their use on their premises by their young clients.   They are also raided for other reasons. Only recently the  police raided three pubs in Indiranagar  on the orders of the High Court following complaints about loud ...
