Peak-hour trucks: Ring Road's worst nightmare 21.9.2017 deccanherald.com
Banned from entering the city's roads during peak hours, heavy transport vehicles are now right back on the hyper-clogged Outer Ring Road. Unregulated entry of these massive, slow-moving trucks has aggravated the traffic congestion, with commuters on the stretch between Silk Board Junction and K R Puram bearing the brunt. The trucks seamlessly pass through five traffic police jurisdictions on this stretch, totally unchecked. Shashidhara Bangalore, an IT professional and a long-time commuter on this stretch, fumes: "They are not stopped anywhere by the Mico Layout, Madiwala, HSR Layout or KR Puram traffic police." A government notification mandates that all goods vehicles with more than three-ton capacity should be banned from entering city limits from 6 am to 10 pm. Only vehicles linked to water supply, garbage, police, military and hearse vehicles are exempted. During peak hours between 8 am and 11 am and from 4 pm to 8 pm, the movement of even vehicles carrying essential services such as milk, ...

Maha uses Malaysian system to reduce neonatal deaths 20.9.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
The state government will use management practices followed by Malaysia to rein in neonatal deaths by monitoring the performance of the health officials concerned. On Tuesday, Maharashtra cabinet decided to use Malaysian government's Performance Management and Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) system and its Big Fast Results (BFR) methodology in three state departments — health, school education, and water supply and sanitation.

A-ward tops list of poor quality water 19.9.2017 DNA: Popular News
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's (BMC) A-ward, which comprises areas like Colaba, Churchgate and Cuffe Parade, has consistently been receiving poor quality water. While in May, the highest number of contaminated water samples collected by the BMC for tests belonged to the A-ward, in June and August, the ward had the second highest number, and in July the third. Civic officials blame the ongoing underground Metro work for the water contamination in this ward, alleging that the work damaged water lines. Ashok Tawadia, hydraulic engineer, BMC, said, "There were two incidents of water line bursts due to Metro work which not only caused water contamination but also cuts in local water supply." Meanwhile a spokesperson from MMRC said, "In both such incidents brought to our notice, our contractors promptly took remedial measures." The monthly water quality reports for May to August, accessed by DNA, show that A-ward has consistently been among the bottom three wards in terms of pure water supply during ...
