Hyderabad Metro Rail seeks critical Telangana government help 27.6.2017
Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Metro Rail project is facing problems in critical areas. HMR officials have listed several issues and sought help from the government. HMR said the completion of work on the Begumpet Metro Rail station was being delayed as they could not get permission for complete road closure on the other side of Country Club. A traffic management plan was approved for the Begumpet Metro station on December 3, 2016. HMR has work pending on the lower concourse level, pier arm beams and slab casting on the other side of Country Club. HMR said complete road closure was required for completion of work on the station. Sequential permissions would only delay progress of work on the project. The authorities have requested the state government"s support for complete road closure. Closure of the arterial road which sees lakhs of vehicles moving up and down seems unlikely, if not impossible. Compounding the problem is the lack of roads that can handle the volume of traffic.  In Stage 3, ...

Faulty planning renders Zirakpur bus stand useless 27.6.2017 The Tribune
Satinder Pal Singh Zirakpur, June 26  The two-storey bus stand at Zirakpur, built at a cost of Rs 5.5 crore, seems to have been rendered useless due to faulty planning in its construction as the traffic plan for the entry and exit of buses has been prepared without any consultation with the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI). Sources said its building, constructed by the Public Works Department over three years ago, has not been used since then. The bus stand has three entry and exit points, one each towards the Chandigarh-Ambala highway, Chandigarh-Panchkula road and the Zirakpur-Panchkula road, further aggravating the traffic problem. Almost three-an-half-years after its inauguration in 2014 by the then Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, the bus stand now wears a deserted look. Moreover,  it is yet to be put to proper use as long route buses do not enter it, instead picking passengers from the main road. The bus stand has been constructed for short-route buses, including private ones ...

Rs 300 crore spent, Mohali residents dump new ISBT 27.6.2017 The Tribune
Kulwinder Sangha Mohali, June 26  Despite a busopolis with state-of-the-art facilities coming up in Mohali in December last year, its inconvenient location has compelled residents to depend on the old, shabby but better located bus stand in Phase VIII. While the new ISBT is air-conditioned and is equipped with many other facilities, the old bus stand projects a picture of a neglect. It lacks basic  sanitation and the parking  area is in bad shape.  Passengers complain that the bus stand does not have proper arrangements  for drinking water even though a water cooler has been installed. Taps are damaged and toilets stink. There are inadequate number of fans for passengers.  Sunita Rani, who is pursuing an HRD course in Chandigarh, said on her way back, she took a bus from this bus stand for Kharar. She had often faced  a problem of drinking water and was forced to fill her water bottle from a nearby gurdwara. The toilets are also stinking.  Ravinder Singh, another passenger, said the Phase VIII bus stand ...

Decade on, Kharar still lacks facility 27.6.2017 The Tribune
Shashi Pal Jain Kharar, June 26 As soon as you reach Kharar from Chandigarh or Landran, a large number of people can be seen waiting for the bus at the local bus stand and that too in the scorching sun without any shelter, seating arrangements, drinking water and other facilities.         They grapple with the same problem on a daily basis despite the fact that the town has become an educational hub with thousands of students visiting it from far off places.  Surprisingly, the foundation stone of a modern bus stand was laid on September 7, 2006, by Capt Amarinder Singh. The project was approved due to efforts of the then Kharar MLA Bir Devinder Singh.  According to the plan approved at that time, offices of the municipal council and the panchayat samiti were to be demolished and a new multi-storey bus stand was to be constructed. According to the plan, the new office of the MC and a shopping complex were to be opened on the first floor. This was a joint project of the Transport Department and the ...
