No parking next to South Mumbai railway stations 14.10.2017 DNA: Money
No parking on road next to the railway stations — this is what the audit report of Western Railway (WR), which chalks out improvement needed at railway stations, says. The report was commissioned after the Elphinstone Bridge tragedy. Railway officials say that they are looking at implementing this mainly in south Mumbai, namely at Churchgate, Marine Lines, Charni Road and Grant Road stations initially as these are heavily used during peak hours. The 200-page audit report of 36 stations was submitted on Friday night to the General Manager of WR, AK Gupta. As per its findings, the railway authorities want the Traffic Police to remove illegal parking from approach roads leading to the railway stations. "We have identified that there are many vehicles, including taxis, parked on road. We want these removed so that there is no congestion outside the platforms," said a WR official. WR authorities feel that these parked vehicles need to be properly aligned so that commuters can move unhindered. As research, the ...

The Capital is Choking 13.10.2017 DNA: Money
For Rajesh Awasthi, Delhi's winter always meant crisp, sunny weekends that his family would often spend picnicking in parks, or near India Gate. Then the pleasant season gradually became a health hazard. "This air was our lifeline. We have made it so toxic that it now takes lives. It's heartbreaking to see my five-year-old son wake up in the middle of the night, coughing and choking," said the 35-year-old MNC executive at his South Delhi apartment. The air in Delhi, one of the world's most polluted cities, has already reached alarming levels, according to the government's real-time air quality index. Thousands are scrambling to hospitals, complaining of breathlessness, watering of eyes, cough, and wheezing. With Diwali, when the quantum of toxic pollutants spikes fourfold, only days away, the Supreme Court (SC) has banned the sale of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR till November 1, almost two weeks after the festival of lights (October 19) will be over. Residents in this region will not be able to purchase ...

VIPs priority for cops as motorists suffer in traffic 13.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Traffic came to a standstill at many places on Friday as it started raining. The problem was aggravated by the police as they converted a two-way into a one-way to enable smooth movement of ministers' vehicles at Chalukya Circle. Due to this, the movement of vehicles in front of the ACB office on Race Course Road was badly hit. "This is absolutely ridiculous on part of traffic," Rajath, a commuter said. "You can't punish the public like this when we're struck in heavy downpour. More than the police, ministers should have some sense," he charged. For over one hour, the vehicles didn't move on Race Course Road and Sivananda Circle. Senior traffic police officers were tight-lipped about the incident. A senior police officer said the police had to make way for the movement of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. Vehicles virtually did not move for over two hours on Sirsi Circle flyover. Vehicles lined up in a long queue since 7 pm from Town Hall. It took hours to cross a three-km stretch of the flyover. As the ...
