Scanners to detect lane cutters automatically to be installed on MPE
Quote:
पुणे- मुंबई द्रुतगती मार्गावर लेनकटिंग करणाऱ्या वाहनचालकांना ध्वनिलहरींद्वारे अचूकपणे टिपणारी स्वयंचलित यंत्रणा लवकरच बसविण्यात येणार आहे. त्यामुळे लेनकटिंगमुळे होणाऱ्या अपघातांचे प्रमाण कमी होण्याबरोबरच अवजड वाहनांच्या चालकांना योग्य प्रकारे वाहन चालविण्याची शिस्तही लावली जाईल.

द्रुतगती मार्गावर धोकादायक पद्धतीने ओव्हरटेक करणे वा फास्ट लेनमधून वाहन चालवून मार्ग अडवून धरण्याच्या प्रकारांमुळे सातत्याने अपघात होत असल्याचे निदर्शनास आले आहे. तथापि, त्यांना आळा घालण्यासाठी द्रुतगती मार्गाचे नियमन करणाऱ्या वाहतूक पोलिसांकडे वा राज्य रस्ते विकास महामंडळाकडे (एमएसआरडीसी) कसल्याही प्रकारची सर्वेलन्स यंत्रणा उपलब्ध नव्हती. अशा यंत्रणेची उणीव मुंबईतील फुलोरा फाउंडेशन भरून काढणार असून त्यांच्या पुढाकाराने द्रुतगती मार्गावर 75 लाख रुपये खर्चाची "रेडिओ फ्रिक्वेन्सी आयडेंटिफिकेशन डिव्हाईस' (आरएफआयडी) ही यंत्रणा बसविण्यात येणार आहे.

खालापूर टोलनाक्*याजवळ गेल्या दोन दिवसांपासून या यंत्रणेच्या चाचण्या सुरू असून राज्य रस्ते विकास महामंडळ (एमएसआरडीसी) आणि राज्यमार्ग पोलिस विभागाच्या अधिकाऱ्यांनी त्यांची प्रात्यक्षिके पाहून त्याबाबत समाधान व्यक्त केले आहे.

शिक्षणतज्ज्ञ व मुंबई विद्यापीठाचे माजी कुलगुरू राम जोशी यांनी रस्त्यावरील अपघातांना आळा घालण्याच्या हेतूने "फुलोरा फाउंडेशन'ची स्थापना केली आहे. अपघातांबाबत जनजागृती करण्यासाठी सिनेकलावंतांच्या मदतीने विशेष मोहीमही या संस्थेने राबविली आहे. अवजड वाहनांच्या बेशिस्त वाहतुकीमुळेच बरेच अपघात होतात, असे आढळून आले आहे. त्यामुळे त्याला आळा घालण्यासाठी द्रुतगती मार्गावर अशा प्रकारची यंत्रणा बसविण्याचा निर्णय संस्थेने घेतला, अशी माहिती संस्थेचे व्यवस्थापकीय विश्*वस्त अरुण सबनीस यांनी दिली.

नियमभंग करणारे वाहन ध्वनिलहरींआधारे अचूकपणे हेरणाऱ्या या यंत्रणेमध्ये काही कॅमेरे, स्कॅनर्स आणि मायक्रोचीपचा समावेश आहे. या योजनेनुसार मार्गावर 20- 25 ठिकाणी कॅमेरे व स्कॅनर्स बसविण्यात येणार आहेत; तर टोलनाक्*यावरून पुढे जाणाऱ्या अवजड वाहनांना व बसगाड्यांना टोलच्या पावतीबरोबरच एक मायक्रोचीपचे कार्डही देण्यात येणार आहे. त्यामुळे अशा वाहनांनी धोकादायक पद्धतीने कोणाला ओव्हरटेक केले वा ती आपली लेन सोडून पहिल्या लेनमध्ये (फास्ट लेन) शिरली, की कॅमेऱ्यात कैद होणार आहेत. त्यांच्या या नियमभंगाची माहिती स्वयंचलित पद्धतीनेच टोलनाक्*यावरील यंत्रणेपर्यंत पोहोचणार आहे. या माहितीमध्ये नियमभंग केलेले ठिकाण व वेळेबरोबरच संबंधित वाहनाच्या छायाचित्राचाही समावेश असेल. इतकेच नव्हे तर असे वाहन नाक्*याजवळ येताच ही यंत्रणा पोलिसांना सावध करण्याचे कामही करणार आहे. एखादे वाहन वारंवार अशा प्रकारचे गुन्हे करते आहे, हेही या यंत्रणेमुळे कळू शकणार असून त्यामुळे त्याविरुद्ध कडक कारवाई करणे शक्*य होईल. अशा प्रकारच्या कारवाया सतत होत राहिल्या तर त्याबद्दल धाक निर्माण होऊन अवजड वाहनांच्या चालकांमध्ये शिस्त येऊ शकेल, असे मत राज्यमार्ग पोलिस विभागाचे अधीक्षक दिलीप भुजबळ यांनी व्यक्त केले.
ही यंत्रणा बसविण्यासाठी 75 लाख रुपये खर्च अपेक्षित असून प्रतिष्ठान आपल्या देणगीदारांमार्फत तो करणार आहे, असे सबनीस यांनी स्पष्ट केले.

रोड मार्शलची मदत
द्रुतगती मार्गावरील वाहतूक नियमनासाठी वाहतूक पोलिसांच्या मदतीला "रोड मार्शल'ची नेमणूक करण्याचीही तयारी "फुलोरा'ने दर्शविली आहे. पोलिसांची अपुरी संख्या, त्यांच्यावर येणारा कामाचा अतिरिक्त ताण लक्षात घेऊनच फुलोराने प्रशिक्षित रोड मार्शल्स पुरविण्याचे ठरविले आहे.
short summary:
Scanners that automatically detect cars that cut lanes dangerously to be installed. Testing has been going at Khalapur Toll Naka for past two days.

Safety on Mumbai-Pune Expressway gets a boost
Quote:
Another Rs16.35 crore will be used to install Brifen Rope Wires on the median of the entire 95-km stretch of the road connecting the two cities.

The budget of Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) indicates that groundwork for augmenting Mumbai-Pune Expressway’s capacity will not happen this year. But, installation of safety and security systems will not wait for next year.

According to the capital expenditure prepared by the corporation for the 2013-14 fiscal, only Rs1 crore has been marked for augmentation proposal.

The plan includes widening the Expressway and Old Mumbai-Pune Highway, segregate both highways, extend the expressway towards Pune, construction of two tunnels (one below Bhushi Dam) and building 15-20 flyovers.But, the frequency of accidents is a cause for concern, thus installation of surveillance and safety systems will begin this year. “A sum of Rs40 crore has been kept aside for surveillance project on the expressway,” said an official from MSRDC.

Another Rs16.35 crore will be used to install Brifen Rope Wires on the median of the entire 95-km stretch of the road connecting the two cities.

On Sunday, two vehicles collided near Kamshet, killing two people and injuring three.Motorists will not have any new roads for at least a year. There are plans to have a theme park and Formula 1 track adjoining the expressway, but it is in the nascent stage.

A sum of Rs15 lakh has been allocated for the theme park and and Rs5 crore for developing the racing track. A cricket stadium has already come up at the Pune-end of the road.

Problem continues on old highway
Quote:
There seems to be no end to problems for the old Pune-Mumbai highway, which has two lanes on most parts and only one lane on some patches.

A senior officer with the State Highway Police (SHP) said, "The notification that has come for the Pune district needs to be brought out for all the highways in the state. We feel that the necessary infrastructural changes should be carried out."

Prashant Mohite, SP with the Thane division of the SHP said, "On most part of the stretch, the old highway has two lanes on one direction. In some patches, specially in the Ghat section it shrinks to one lane. Implementing the lane discipline is always a challenge but its needs to be done on priority basis."

Sub inspector L V Bhosale, who is in-charge of the Borghat section of the highway police said, "Another important requirement for maintaining lane discipline is having medians (road dividers) without breaks. IN the absence of road dividers, vehicles tend to crossover to opposite lanes. Vehicles get plenty of room to flout lane norms then."

New Expressway norms run into trouble
Quote:
Even AS the district collectorate has come out with a draft notification making it compulsory for heavy vehicles to travel only on the extreme left lane of the Pune-Mumbai Expressway, and the right lane for overtaking, highway police said that the rule can only be implemented if some basic changes are made in the structure of the highway. The highway police have been demanding the changes since many years.
The highway police had submitted a proposal with a legal framework of the highway to district collectors of Pune and Thane. The Pune-Mumbai Expressway and the Pune-Mumbai highway stretch across the two districts.

Based on the proposal, the Pune district collector issued a draft notification as per different road traffic laws. It says all heavy vehicles will use the left lane and the central lane will be for light vehicles. The right lane will only be used for overtaking. Barring a few kms in the Ghat section, 94-km of the Pune-Mumbai Expressway has three lanes.

Dilip Bhujbal, superintendent with the Pune division of the State Highway Police (SHP), said, "There is no provision to make the left lane compulsory for heavy vehicles. The rule cannot be implemented unless some basic changes are made in the structure of the highway."

Prashant Mohite, SP with the Thane division of the SHP, said, "Amrutanjan bridge is the biggest obstacle. Heavy vehicles have to shift lanes to take a turn as the structure of the turn is weird."

Another officer with the highway police said, "The width of the six major curves on the Expressway, three in Pune division and three in Thane division, needs to be increased. We have been pursuing this matter with the MSRDC (Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation) and IRB. Amrutanjan bridge needs major structural changes. It has several sharp curves that needs to be altered. We know that these changes are difficult to make but it has to be done as people's lives are at stake."

Mohite added, "The logical step would be to install CCTV cameras to monitor whose who flout rules. These cameras need to be installed at regular intervals." Bhujbal said, "We have also asked for parking bays for heavy vehicles. On the small patches where there are only two lanes on the Expressway, left will be for heavy vehicles and right will be for small vehicles and overtaking." Two wheelers are not allowed on the Expressway.

At present, the notification is only for the Pune district. Officers said notification for Thane was awaited, and communication is on with the district administration.

Cable-stayed-bridge-to-connect-Raigad-and-Ratnagiri

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...w/20456541.cms

MUMBAI: A 1,800-metre cable stayed bridge with approach roads on both sides will be constructed across the Bankot creek to connect Raigad and Ratnagiri districts in the state.

Officials said the alignment of the bridge close to the creek mouth though more in length is the most appropriate as there are no mangroves here. The area falls in CRZ I and IV (water area of creek). A high power watch dog committee is to be set up to carry out sudden spot inspections, check documents, listen to complaints. The committee will supervise construction, treatment and mission management, disposal management, law enforcement, etc.

The Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority (MCZMA) has decided to forward the proposal to the ministry of environment and forests (MoEF) subject to the condition that activities of local fisherman community is not hampered, height of pillars is such that it allows free movement of fishing boats and the flow of tidal water is not obstructed.

I think they have learnt their lessons after BWSL .So to avoid PIL's they have started to opt for cable stayed bridges . It would allow the smooth movement of boats and I guess less number of pillars means a lesser impact on mangroves .

Is that so?
one look at BWSL and you can see tons of pillars.
I always thought it was the cosmetic factor.

Maha-s-highways-among-the-deadliest

http://www.hindustantimes.com/India-...1-1082572.aspx

Figures from from the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) show that 45,247 accidents were reported in the state last year, in which 13,936 persons were killed.

Data from the state highway traffic police shows that of these figures, around 13,333 people were killed and 43,847 injured in accidents on the state highways last year.

Blame it on the lack of infrastructure, hospital facilities and police outposts along the roads, their poor condition, or rash driving, but the number of accidents reported each year on the 15 national highways and 291 state highways in Maharashtra, stretching 33,165 kms, apart from the arterial roads, remain consistently high.

The statistics reveal that Maharashtra ranked second in the country in the number of road accidents last year, with the highest number of vehicles registered here.

In road fatalities, the state came fourth after Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh. The statistics also revealed, 45,247 accidents were reported in the state last year, in which 13,936 persons were killed.

Data from the state highway traffic police shows that of these figures, around 13,333 people were killed and 43,847 injured in accidents on the state highways last year.

Traffic officials said a major reason for deaths on highways is because help is not provided in the ‘golden hour’ — the first hour after an accident is the most crucial and if medical help reaches the victims within this time, most lives can be saved.

But owing to very few trauma centers along the highways, availing immediate medical help becomes difficult.

“Even in the case of this accident, there is no trauma care unit along the entire NH17.

The closest trauma centers are only at Ratnagiri, Mumbai and Goa that are several kilometers away,” said Prashant Mohite, superintendent of police, Thane region highway traffic.

An official from the state highway traffic police said admitted the force is not adequately equipped to help accident victims more effectively.

“There are not more than 60 traffic aid posts (TAPs) to man the 33,165-km-long state highways. So every traffic post has to monitor and control traffic on a stretch of over 550 kilometers each.

If the surveillance was higher, accidents would have seen a decline,” he said.

Does surveillance really help?
I thought better driving and better roads would do.

NH-17-widening-set-to-shoo-away-karnala-birds

The sensationalism that our media and environmentalists create just for the sake of popularity . They fail to realise the number of lives that will be saved as a result of the addition of 2 lanes .

http://www.dnaindia.com/mumbai/18593...-karnala-birds

That chirpy twitter of birds and sight of rare winged creatures at Karnala bird sanctuary near Panvel could soon be passé, fear green warriors. Thirty members of a Mumbai-based non-governmental organisation, Watchdog Foundation, on Monday registered a protest with Bombay Natural History Society about how industrialisation could harm wildlife at the sanctuary.

This comes in the wake of union minister for environment and forests Jayanti Natarajan’s recent nod to add two lanes to the Mumbai-Goa highway (NH-17) that the sanctuary abutts. Also, an industrial project is slated to come up near the bird haven, said advocate Godfrey Pimenta of Watchdog Foundation.

The bird sanctuary is home to 147 species of birds besides 37 species of migratory birds and others belonging to the ‘endangered species’ category. “We request BNHS to help save the sanctuary. If approved, the industrial plant will be around 1.5km from the sanctuary’s boundary,” said Pimenta.

Environmental laws mandate that zones within 10km of boundaries of sanctuaries and national parks be tagged ‘eco-fragile’. Director of BNHS, Dr Asad Rahmani, also a member of the standing committee of the National Board for Wildlife, assured the protesters that he will try to protect the interest of the sanctuary.

John Miranda, a resident of Kalhe village, located on the fringes of the sanctuary, told dna that he could once hear deer and wild boars. “In the last three years, all of these and the birds have vanished.”
