HC notice to govt over flyover projects (Cached) 17.4.2014 Asian Age: Delhi

The high court has sought a reply from the Centre and the city government on a plea seeking framing of guidelines for completing flyover projects in the capital.
A bench of Justices Pradeep Nandrajog and Jayanth Nath issued notices to the ministry of railways, Delhi government, North Delhi Municipal Corporation, Land Acquisition Collector, Jal Board and traffic police and sought their reply by May 2.
The plea was filed by Arpit Bhargava who requested the court to give directions to the authorities to complete the construction of the flyover on the Rani Jhansi Road keeping the time frame in mind.
Mr Bhargava alleged that the delayed work of the flyover had been causing loss of money to the exchequer as the cost of the project had escalated to `260 crore from `177 crore back in 2009 when the work had started.
The petitioner said that the delays were causing massive traffic jams.

People's Problems 14.4.2014
Erratic bus services For the last several weeks especially on Saturdays, the bus services from Shivajinagar to Malleswaram/Rajajinagar were very erratic between 12.30 pm to 2 pm. Only one bus is plying on this route during this time and it is overcrowded at the starting point itself. Large number of commuters including students who want to catch the bus at Indian Express, C College and Shivananda have to wait for hours and are virtually at the mercy of BMTC. The lethargic attitude of the BMTC is really condemnable. The BMTC should wake up from the slumber and solve this problem by plying more buses on this route during afternoon especially on Saturdays.
