      NHAI trucks damage Uppalwadi road, industrialists suffer losses

      Proshun Chakraborty | TNN | Jul 13, 2018, 03:34 IST

      Nagpur: As many as 100 units from Uppalwadi Industrial Estate in north Nagpur are suffering financial losses as transporters have stopped plying vehicles in the periphery due to pathetic condition of the 800-metre approach road to the estate. Several potholes have developed on the stretch due to plying of heavy vehicles deployed by National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) contractors.

      “Most industrial units are unable to get supply of raw material or deliver finished products as transporters are not ready to use poor roads as the vehicles get damaged, resulting into increase in maintenance cost,” said UIE Association chairman Arvind Choudhary.

      Until two months ago, the road to the region’s first industrial estate was in a motorable condition. It started deteriorating after the NHAI started road widening work near the railway underbridge that connects Kamptee Road with the industrial estate, said industrialists.

      On being informed, TOI visited the area and found that a big pit (50ft diameter and 40ft deep) has been dug up in the middle of Kamptee Road at the entrance of Uppalwadi, resulting into traffic chaos during peak hours. Even heavy vehicles deployed for road widening works are parked on this road, leading to formation of potholes.

      Industrialist Rakesh Khandelwal also said drivers of private vehicles and employees of industrial units have complained about the road condition. “Plying of heavy vehicles has damaged the only road to the estate,” said Sukhbir Singh, an industrialist.

      Choudhary claimed that the association has also informed the agencies concerned but their pleas seem to have fallen on deaf ears.

      Pothole-ridden isn’t the only problem here as industrialists claimed that on July 10, production of many units was hit due to no power supply from 12 noon till late in the night.

      According to industrialist Anuja Sharma, a power cable was damaged when an NHAI contractor was carrying out some work. “In another incident, an NHAI contractor cut an underground BSNL cable a few weeks back leading to snapping of Internet and phone lines here,” she said.

      The industrial association has now decided to lodge a written complaint with the Union minister for road transport and highways Nitin Gadkari.

      NHAI regional officer M Chandrashekhar claimed that very few trucks of NHAI contractors are parked on the Uppalwadi industrial estate road. “We will park them elsewhere if locals are facing problems. But that will not solve the problem as a large number of private trucks too are parked there,” he said.

      To a query, he said, “The Central government had sanctioned Rs5 crore for setting up of a truck terminal on five hectares near Kamptee Road. The state government was to hand over the land to NHAI. However, the government had indicated its inability to do, so we have dropped the project.”

        VIDC asks NMC to look for other sources of water for city

        Shishir Arya | TNN | Jul 13, 2018, 03:41 IST

        Nagpur: Vidarbha Irrigation Development Corporation (VIDC) has asked Nagpur Municipal Corporation to tap sources of water other than Totladoh dam on Pench river for city’s water needs. The civic body needs to be ready with alternative sources if it wants to avoid a shortage in coming days, warns VIDC.

        NMC’s consumption has exceeded the quota of 140 million cubic metres (MCM) in the last month itself. The period for fixing the quota is counted from October 2017 to September 2018.

        The new quota will only be fixed two months from now. For any drawal above the limit till then, the civic body will have to pay a higher tariff according to the guidelines of Maharasthra Water Resources Regulatory Authority (MWRRA), said a VIDC source.

        Thanks poor monsoon last year, water level in Totladoh, like other dams in the region, had touched a low. This was the first year of cut in NMC’s yearly quota. Water availability has been reduced as Chourai dam has been built on Madhya Pradesh side of river. There is a likelihood of a cut even in coming season. Earlier, as much as 190 MCM was available for Nagpur.

        VIDC has asked the civic body to reduce dependence on Totladoh dam or the city may face a major drinking water crisis.

        The letter mentions that during the winter session chief minister Devendra Fadnavis had stressed for early completion of the Kanhan-Kolar project so that the dependence on Totladoh was reduced. An agreement has been signed to prepare the detailed project report (DPR) for the project. VIDC has pointed that a proposal for allocation of funds for Kanhan-Kolar project has to be routed through the urban development department (UDD).

        Even this year, the water situation has not improved much despite good rains so far. The letter says not much rain is expected during the month of July as well. Considering the likely shortage, NMC needs to begin water rationing, it adds.

        The letter asks NMC to wake up to the situation and start tapping other resources of water until Kanhan-Kolar project is competed. The groundwater level increases during the monsoons that can be exploited by NMC for the time being, it adds.

        VIDC has also suggested the NMC should lift water at the sites where its pipeline crosses the Kanhan-Kolar rivers and use it for city. If timely steps are not taken, water from the Kanhan river will flow away.

        Meanwhile the rains during last 10 days have marginally filled up Totladoh dam. As against 7.8% storage a couple of day ago, the level has now touched 11.5% as of Thursday. However, the bigger apprehension is the cut in availability due to Chourai dam in Madhya Pradesh, the source said.

          Forest clearance must for Melghat railway line: State

          Vijay Pinjarkar | TNN | Jul 13, 2018, 03:59 IST

          Nagpur: Though South Central Railway (SCR) has sent detailed estimates to Railway Board for converting Akola-Khandwa (176km) narrow gauge line into broad gauge through Melghat Tiger Reserve (MTR), the state forest department has written to MoEFCC that Forest (Conservation) Act, 1980, will be applicable to the project.

          Of the 176km, 39km section between Akot-Amlakhurd section passes through the tiger reserve and its buffer zone.

          “Based on Attorney General of India (AGI) opinion, Railway Board has conveyed to us on June 19, that FCA came into existence in 1980 and the railway line was constructed in 1959, hence FCA was not applicable. Accordingly, we have sent estimates to the board,” said M Umashankar Kumar, chief public relations officer (CPRO), SCR, on Thursday.

          Refusing to go into details, he said the work will be done through tiger reserve only as alternative line will escalate the cost immensely. The railway ministry had approved the project in 2008. After the AGI’s opinion, the railways have asked MTR to allow it to start work on the project. However, referring to the Railway Board June 19 letter, state’s nodal officer wrote to the MoEFCC on June 22 reminding it about its own direction issued on December 5, 2017, that states irrespective of right of way (ROW) with the railways, construction of new track and other facilities for gauge conversion of existing line would require forest clearance.

          “It seems the meeting between highways minister Nitin Gadkari and railway minister Piyush Goyal on June 18 has not considered the MoEFCC letter. It is also surprising why the director general forest, who was part of the meeting, kept mum,” asked Sawan Deshmukh, honorary wildlife warden of Amravati.

          “When MoEFCC, which is expert on the subject, says forest clearance is must, how can AGI’s opinion be different? It is evident BJP government wants to implement the project through the reserve without considering the ecological damage it would cause in future,” said Amravati-based wildlife activist Sarvesh Marathe.

          Considering the MoEFCC direction issued in December 2017, the state’s nodal officer has sought necessary instructions from the environment ministry for further action regarding the applicability of the provisions of FCA for the railway line.

          Meanwhile, talks between wildlife activists and BJP MP from Akola MP Sanjay Dhotre, who is pushing for the project through the tiger reserve, failed as Dhotre said alternative alignment would not help much. “It will involve forest clearance, construction of a 6.5km tunnel, land acquisition, development of new stations and host of complicated issues. Many villages on alternative route are small where trains would not stop,” Dhotre said.

          When pointed out that BJP’s own MLA Sanjay Kute from Buldhana and its ally MP Prataprao Pawar from Shiv Sena were opposing the line through tiger reserve, Dhotre said, “They are misguided. They never opposed it earlier. Railways is ready to take mitigation measures.”

                Only Mhada will build affordable houses in district

                Ashish Roy | tnn | Jul 13, 2018, 07:18 IST

                Nagpur: Guardian minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule has asked all local bodies in the district — Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC), municipal councils and Nagpur Metropolitan Region Development Authority (NMRDA) — to hand over government land to Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (Mhada) for building affordable houses.

                Henceforth, only Mhada will build affordable houses. The local bodies were told to hand over to Mhada only those lands that do not have any reservation and whose title is clear. The affordable housing target for the district this year is 50,000 tenements.

                The minister had convened a meeting of chief executive officers (CEOs) of district’s municipal councils for this purpose on Wednesday. He took a review of the progress of affordable housing schemes under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY). Top housing officials and CEO of Mhada were present in the meeting.

                Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) was asked to set up a cell for affordable housing. Some 72,000 applications have been received by NMC for affordable housing so far. The corporation officials were asked to certify these applications.

                NMRDA was directed to hand over 38 acre land in metro region to Mhada. It was also asked to hand over 4.39 acre land within municipal limits. Bawankule further said that Indira Awas Yojana and Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) land could also be handed over to Mhada.

                An official in Bawankule’s office, however, said that NMRDA will be allowed to complete its ongoing affordable housing projects. The agency is constructing houses in Wathoda and Tarodi.

                District Rural Development Agency (DRDA) has submitted a list of 759 villages to NMRDA. The metropolitan agency should find out how many people have their own houses and the number of houses on government land. Those living in houses with tin and tile roofs will be provided affordable houses by Mhada. NMRDA will have to certify such people and homeless people.

                All the CEOs were asked to find out government land available in their jurisdiction and make it available to Mhada. They were also asked to certify people living in tile and tin roof houses and homeless people.

                The application for obtaining an affordable house will be submitted to municipal councils. The CEOs were asked to process these applications fast.

                  Rs7,300 cr for rural power infra revamp: Bawankule

                  Ashish Roy | TNN | Jul 14, 2018, 04:57 IST
                  Nagpur: Energy minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule on Friday announced that MSEDCL was planning to launch a Rs7,300 crore scheme to revamp rural power infrastructure. Several MLAs had raised the issue of low voltage supply and frequent breakdowns in rural areas.

                  “MSEDCL already has a loan of Rs40,000 crore so another Rs7,300 crore won’t matter. We will take another loan for the benefit of rural populace,” the minister told the state assembly during question hour.

                  “We are also spending Rs5,000 crore on revamping power infrastructure under Deendayal Upadhyay Yojana and Integrated Power Development Scheme (IPDS). When these projects are completed problems of low voltage supply and frequent breakdowns will go away,” he said.

                  Bawankule further said that MSEDCL had identified 21,000 accident prone spots in the state and money would be spent there. “The rural power infrastructure is old and needs urgent replacement,” he added.

                  NCP leader Ajit Pawar, referring to a newspaper article, questioned whether the state was facing a shortage of 4,000MW. The minister said that the article was factually incorrect. “Our present peak demand is 14,400MW. We are fully meeting it without load shedding. In fact we are forced to backdown the power stations due to low demand. We had met the highest demand ever of 23,700MW without resorting to power cuts,” he added.

                    ‘Bhoomipuja’ of Butibori MIDC flyover today

                    Anjaya Anparthi | TNN | Jul 15, 2018, 03:44 IST

                    Nagpur: Planned two years ago, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is set to start construction of the flyover on Wardha Road at Butibori MIDC junction. The flyover is likely to be constructed in 18 months.

                    Union minister for road transport, highways and shipping Nitin Gadkari and Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis will perform bhoomipuja of the flyover on Sunday.

                    NHAI project director NL Yeotkar told TOI that the project’s estimated cost is Rs45 crore. “The flyover’s length will be 850 metre on Wardha Road. Total length of construction work, including service roads, will be 1.67km. An eligible contractor has been shortlisted and work order has been submitted for approval,” he said.

                    The flyover will reduce traffic congestion on Wardha Road and bring relief to Butibori MIDC residents.

                    Traffic congestion at Butibori MIDC junction has become a major problem ever since residential and commercial areas have come up there. Hyderabad national highway’s traffic slows at the junction while vehicles coming from Butibori industrial area enter directly on the national highway, causing severe congestion.

                    The NHAI has also started to widen the existing two-lane railway over bridge (ROB) at Chinchbhuvan into a four-lane ROB. The cost of the project is estimated to be Rs76 crore.

                      MSEDCL digs up London St road amid rains, mocks at NMC orders

                      Anjaya Anparthi | TNN | Updated: Jul 15, 2018, 10:43 IST

                      NAGPUR: The Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd (MSEDCL) has continued to dig roads violating Nagpur Municipal Corporation’s (NMC) orders to stop all such works during monsoon. Also, the power utility’s bad quality of restoration has resulted into nightmare for the citizens.

                      MSEDCL is digging the London Street road between Khamla Vegetable market and Bhamti for laying underground power cable. The digging has also been done across the roads joining London Street. The works started last Thursday and have continued since.

                      At the same time, MSEDCL is also filling up the trench with stones and sand but in an improper manner. It can be gauged from the current condition of the road. The filled up trenches have turned muddy. The wet mud has also flowed on to the road. Since these are not level with road, they create a speed bump.

                      Hawkers alsong the roads said two-wheelers were skidding and pedestrians facing severe problems. “The road poses danger during the night. It has resulted into inconvenience for parking of two-wheelers and four-wheelers along the road. Vehicles can be seen stuck in the mud,” they said.

                      NMC Laxmi Nagar Zone officials said letter was issued to MSEDCL directing it to stop the works during monsoon. “We were busy with monsoon session of the state legislature and also demolition of religious structures so could not visit the road. We will inspect and initiate necessary action,” they said.

                      MSEDCL additional executive engineer, Trimurti Nagar, Vijay Mankar said, “the contrator has been asked to restore the trenches immediately.”

                      Private companies are also yet to restore trenches they had dug up in a proper manner. In Sahakar Nagar, Pande layout, Khamla, Dharampeth etc restoration has not been done properly even on interior roads leaving them in bad shape.

                      On Wednesday, municipal commissioner Virendra Singh reviewed works being done by all government departments. Singh urged all departments to take permission before digging roads. He also asked for security deposit that will be forfeited if trenches were not restored properly. He set a deadline for various projects including construction of footpath by MahaMetro on roads where Metro Rail works were going on.
