Airbus flights from Gannavaram airport soon

VIJAYAWADA: Wide-body Airbus is likely to land at Gannavaram airport within two months as the authorities are determined to complete installation of landing equipment for big aircraft at the earliest.
Speaking to newsmen on Thursday, airport new director C Pattabhi who assumed charge recently, said the airport authorities, in coordination with the revenue department, were planning to acquire land for the runway expansion.
Pattabhi who worked in Visakhapatnam airport earlier, said big aircraft could be operated from Gannavaram airport from the ensuing winter schedule. As part of expansion of the runway, some trees on the airport premises need to be removed.
The revenue authorities have already identified the trees which come in the flight path. Air India and SpiceJet are ready to operate Airbus services from Gannavaram airport once the expansion of runway is completed.
In all, 465 acres of land is necessary for expansion of the runway up to 10,000 feet. The Krishna district administration is likely to issue a notification for land acquisition soon. If the land is allotted for development of the airport, the construction of terminal building will be taken up. Instrument landing facility at the airport will be provided within two months to facilitate night landing of aircraft, he said.
At present, Kingfisher Airlines is operating flight services from Bangalore-Vij a y awa d a -Bang a l o r e , Hyderabad-Vijayawada- Hyderabad and Vijayawada- Chennai. Vijayawada-Bangalore flight takes off from Gannavaram at 12:35 hours every day and at 13:30 hours on Tuesday. Hyderabad flight is scheduled to leave the airport at 14:35 hours everyday. Jet Airways flight leaves Gannavaram at 15:00 hours daily except on Tuesdays.
Kingfisher flight for Chennai leaves at 16.26 hours daily except on Wednesdays.
Air passengers can contact Kingfisher Airlines on phone No: 08676 253538-39 and Jet Airways on phone No: 08676 253977-88 for any info about flight timings.

VMC, police differ on road-dividers

Quote:


Corporation not heeding to the request to fix cat eyes on highway within the city

The construction of a divider at Padavala Ravu Centre is a long-pending demand of the people living in surrounding areas. It has the endorsement of the traffic police, but it does not seem to be a priority for the Vijayawada Municipal Corporation which has to construct it. The Karlmarx (Eluru) Road is very broad at that point and heavy vehicles tend to speed there. In the absence of a divider pedestrians keep crossing the road all along the stretch of the road. Several accidents have occurred at the spot. A divider will force the vehicles to slow down and pedestrians to cross at one single point.

With the Dasara coming up the people of Padavala Revu are again in the grip of fear as all the heavy vehicles on National Highway-9 are diverted on to Eluru Road. This is not the only point the traffic police do not see eye to eye with the municipal corporation.
Entry points

At Krishna Lanka on National Highway No.5 and 9 is yet another bone of contention. The traffic police had asked the municipal corporation to close 20 out of the 32 entry points through which people living along the National Highway access it. Only 12 such entry points are safe, according to traffic police.

This again does not seem to be a priority for the municipal corporation. Meanwhile, these 20 entry points are potential accident spots with road users having narrow brushes with death and injury everyday.

There is nobody in the municipal corporation to heed to the request of the traffic police to fix high visibility cat-eyes on stretches of the national highway that goes past Bhavanipuram, Gollapudi, and other areas right up to Ibrahimpatnam.

In a bid to make optimum use of manpower the traffic police have written to the Municipal Corporation to block gaps in the divider the busiest part of Mahatma Gandhi (Bandar) Road. The traffic police have suggested that the gaps in the divider be closed temporarily with mobile concrete blocks that were being used in Hyderabad and even Guntur Municipal Corporations. The corporation has been asked to block entrances to Atta Rattayya Street, Swaraj Maidan, RTA Office road, and Police Parade Grounds.

The top officials are finding it difficult to find personnel to man these gaps in the dividers which have become potential accident spots. The mobile concrete blocks are some sort of a boon for them.

Exquisite street lights to dot more city roads

Quote:


Vijayawada Municipal Corporation takes up fixing of poles on Sambamurthy Road

The Vijayawada Municipal Corporation (VMC) is going ahead with the exquisite street lighting notwithstanding special officer S.A.M. Rizvi's suggestion to put such projects on hold. The corporation officials maintain that these projects were sanctioned prior to the Special Officer's directions.

The VMC took up erection of exquisite street lighting on Sambamurthy Road near Durgapuram a couple of days ago.

The VMC officials planned to erect 28 poles on this 1 k.m. stretch of the road and in all 56 lights would glow. The VMC was spending Rs.40 lakh to install these street lights.

Likewise, the exquisite street lights would be installed on Andhra Loyola College Road, in One Town area and Ambedkar Road in Kummaripalem centre etc.

Depending upon the road length and requirement, each scheme cost Rs.30 lakh to Rs.40 lakh. In all, the VMC plans to spend Rs.1 crore on street lighting on these roads. The VMC officials maintained that the schemes were sanctioned 7 to 8 months ago.
Beautification plans

However, they could not be grounded due to delay in road widening works, and construction of medians. The tenders were finalised and works were awarded, they said.

Had the corporation taken up regular street lights and poles installation, the cost would not have been more than Rs.65 lakh to Rs.70 lakkh.

However, the corporation, as part of its city beautification proposals planned installation of exquisite street lights on bridges, important roads, canal berms etc., sources said.

These street lights were first installed on bridge near VMC main office. It drew flak from various quarters, including ruling Congress party. It spent about Rs.10 crore on beautification works like paving of footpaths, erection of exquisite street lights and floating fountains. The officials, then, spent the money without prior approval for the works from the Standing Committee or had not made sufficient budgetary provisions.

Passport Seva Kendra launch likely on October 5

Source: TheHindu

Quote:
For providing faster passport services, efforts are on to launch the Passport Seva Kendra here on October 5, the day when PSKs at Tirupati and Nizamabad are also expected to be declared open for the public.
Conceived by the Ministry of External Affairs, the PSKs function under the Passport Seva Project with the Tata Consultancy Services as a partner to maintain the services. The PSK Vijayawada is developed on 10,000 sft built up area at Midcity Hotel building in a modern facility located on the MG Road near the All India Radio office.
Under the project, about 250 passport applicants can be serviced each day at the PSK Vijayawada, which will be linked to the Hyderabad Passport Office. The collection of passport application, police verification and other basic aspects of it will be dealt with at the PSK itself with the RPO, Hyderabad, playing a role only in printing and despatch of the passport.
As per the new procedures, an applicant is likely to get his or her passport within 14 days of having submitted the same at the PSK and any enquiry can also be made at the local office, said Muthavarapu Muralikrishna, president of the Andhra Chamber of Commerce and Industry. It would be a very good facility for the people of the region and they would access effective passport services. The Andhra Chamber helped in finding the location for city PSK's office.
The PSK Vijayawada will provide services to the people from Krishna, West Godavari, Prakasam and Khammam districts, Mr. Muralikrishna said and added that there would also be a bank counter and coffee shop for the convenience of the applicants. A photo capturing centre, separate processing wing for women and ramp for handicapped persons are other facilities which will be available.
At the PSK Vijayawada, reissue of passports and tatkal applications will also be taken up. An applicant can visit after taking an online appointment and submission of his or her application will be completed within 45 minutes. An additional Rs. 200 will be collected towards service charges.
The beginning of services at PSKs will greatly ease the burden and rush at the Regional Passport Office in Hyderabad where nearly 2,500 applications are being dealt with as of now each day. Under the central project, seven PSKs are being established in all in Andhra Pradesh of which the one in Visakhapatnam has already started operations.

Nainavaram flyover inaugurated

Source: The Hindu
Quote:

Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare Ghulam Nabi Azad has inaugurated a RoB connecting the Milk Factory and Nainavaram, popularly known as Nainavaram flyover.

The flyover that is named after former MLA Chanumolu Venkat Rao was formally thrown open for public on Sunday in the presence of Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, who unveiled a statue of Venkat Rao installed on the flyover.

Both the leaders later unveiled the statue of the former Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi, at Budameru Katta.

Locals, led by the TDP, the CPI and the CPI(M), staged a sit-in protesting against the visiting dignitaries. CPI city secretary K. Subba Raju, CPI(M) State committee member Ch. Babu Rao, and TDP leader G. Chinna alleged that the Chief Minister was disinclined to accept a memorandum from the Budameru victims.

The government's apathy and Mr. Reddy's reaction to their plight forced them to stage a sit-in, they said.

The flyover was constructed at a cost of Rs.37.61 crore. The R&B spent Rs.20 crore and the Railways contributed the remaining Rs.17.81 crore.

The flyover had four approaches. While one approach from the Wagon Workshop was constructed by the Railways for its own use, the approach from the Gollapudi side of the city was 449.80-metre-long, and the third was 436.2-metre-long from the Vissannapet side.

A trumpet approach, which is nearing completion, of a length of 249 metres is designed to enable the traffic coming from Chittinagar and One Town to get on to the flyover. There is a steep and short 270-metre-long branch for the traffic bound for the One Town area and wanting to get off the flyover.

All these approaches together come to 1,396 metres. The main flyover from the Kabela side to the Nainavaram side has a length of about 1,100 metres.

Garbage disposal: VMC mulls green way

Source: http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/...cle2603856.ece
Quote:


ECO-FRIENDLY: A team of technicians measures quantum and quality of gases being produced by a newly-developed fuel-less garbage disposal machine in the city on Friday. Photo: Raju V.

Residents' associations to be encouraged to use fuel-free incinerators

The Vijayawada Municipal Corporation will ask resident welfare associations to test the fuel-free incinerators at their colony level so that garbage transportation and collection become less labour intensive.

The Municipal Commissioner G. Ravi Babu told The Hindu that the fuel-free incinerator manufactured and tested by Bangalore-based Innovative Environmental Solutions Private Limited on the VMC Vehicle Shed opposite Railway Station was amazing with very less emission. The VMC works on a 50 per cent subsidy for the welfare association in sanitation, where this machine can be tried.

“All kinds of garbage can be segregated locally and even wet garbage (except for inert ones) can be reduced to ash within eight hours,” said Mr. Ravi Babu. This will help dispose off the garbage locally without pollution and the transportation cost is reduced for the association and the VMC too, he observed.

IES representatives K.V. Rayudu and Arun Kumar said that they had come up with the machine that uses a Japanese patented technology to burn all kinds of garbage right form domestic (with 60 per cent moisture) to specific industrial waste.

The SGS Limited, an international organisation tested the dioxin and furons emissions and measured quantum if they were within the Pollution Control Board norms. Results will be known within a month.

Emissions from the burning chamber were directed into another electric furnace where the carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, Sulphur dioxide and Nitrous oxide gases were burnt after passing through a water chamber. Finally environment-friendly gases were released and this had become a big attraction for several people in Vijayawada.

“We propose to put up the machine at four different places in the city to organise demonstrations for students to make them understand the scientific disposal of garbage,” Mr. Ravi Babu added. These could be first tried at Kalyanamandapam, abattoirs, hotels and other big establishments to reduce their contribution to municipal garbage transportation.

Once successful tests were done with different types of garbage in Vijayawada, the manufacturers expect the APPCB to give their certification so that it could be used in chemical, industrial garbage generating units.

Eco-friendly bag manufacturing unit opened

Quote:

A bunch of enthusiastic women encircled the machine that was the cynosure of all eyes and watched with heightened curiosity as it began to churn out non-woven eco-friendly bags at the slight push of a button.

The non-woven bag manufacturing unit at Poranki, christened as Dhanalakshmi Industries, attracted people in the vicinity, who gathered out of curiosity. “These bags are non-woven polypropylene (P.P.) fabric, made of spun bond polypropylene which can be recycled, naturally decompose and completely incinerates without any production of poisonous pollutant.

The bags look like a textile, but they are in-fact made from spun bonded polypropylene, commonly known as PP,” explained V. Kiran Babu, Managing Director of the unit. “This is the only alternative for a plastic bag, which has been banned by the local Municipal Corporation. The many advantages of this bag include its durability, the softness, air permeability, eco-friendly and re-usable,” said T.M. Winson, service manager, APL Machinery. Besides full address of the manufacturing unit at Poranki, the bags carry a powerful message: “Stop using plastic, save our mother land”. The machine can produce 60 bags per minute and 500 kgs in a single day.

“Once the ban is strictly implemented, the demand for these bags will increase automatically,” says Mr. Kiran Babu. The newly set up unit is the third non-woven bag unit and nearest to the city, besides two more at Kondapally and Eedupugallu. “The city may need at least 35-60 units to cater to its needs in the days to come,” predicts Mr. Kiran Babu. “People must adopt this environment-friendly bag keeping in view the fact that a plastic bag takes 450 years to biodegrade, thus causing immense harm to the ecology.

The earlier we understand this, the better for us,” said V.S. Rao, financial advisor to the unit.

Oryza Township proposal gets nod

Source: The Hindu

UDA to develop housing, industrial hub, railway freight terminal, and a theme park

Quote:
The State government has given a green signal to Vijayawada Guntur Tenali Mangalagiri Urban Development Authority (VGTMUDA)'s ambitious project christened Oryza Township.

The UDA proposes to develop the township in an extent of 1,450 acre on 60:40 sharing basis with the farmers and land owners in Mustabada, Nunna, and Ramavarappadu villages. The UDA's share after development of the land will be around 560 acres.

The project has various features, including housing, a railway freight terminal, a theme park in 100 to 120 acres, an industrial hub for logistics manufacturing units, a permanent exhibition ground, and shifting of some of the government institutions.

Speaking toThe Hindu, VGTMUDA Vice-Chairman G.S.R.K.R. Vijay Kumar asserts that the Oryza Township would be first of the kind with many features and necessary infrastructure. The UDA proposes roads with a width of 60 to 200 ft to suit the needs of every segment planned at the township.

A 200ft road parallel to National Highway (NH)-5 and upcoming Outer Ring Road (ORR), radial roads with a width of 120 ft to connect the Inner Ring Road, airport were being planned, he said.

The proposed theme park at the centre of the township would be developed in Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode and bigger than Cubbon Park in Bangalore. Taking a cue from Nagapur where rail, road, and air connectivity was provided for freight, the railway freight terminal sliding into township.

The housing would cater to all segments of society, including Economically Weaker Sections (EWS). The UDA proposes to offer both constructed houses and plots at the township. The UDA would provide drinking water not just to township but also to nine villages abutting it. A permanent exhibition ground would also come up at the township in 60 acres.

“The UDA requires Rs.500 crore to develop the infrastructure. The HUDCO in principle agreed to sanction the loan. The UDA also has some funds. The project would be launched as soon as the government gave its final consent to Detailed Project Report (DPR),” he said.

Passport Seva Kendra opens in city

Source: The Hindu
Quote:

Applicants wait in a queue at Passport Seva Kendra on its first day of operations in Vijayawada on Friday.

The local Passport Seva Kendra, located opposite All India Radio on MG Road, was opened to the public on Friday without any fanfare. A large number of applicants turned up at the office on the first day and formed a long queue to submit their applications.

The officials of the PSK accepted the applications submitted manually by the applicants in spite of the guidelines making it mandatory for prior online appointment. As the online services of Vijayawada PSK are not yet activated on www.passportindia.gov.in, the officials gave exemption to the applicants. The officials have refused to confirm whether these manual services will be extended till online services come into effect.

The applicants mostly came prepared to submit applications in the old format with the officials of PSK finding it difficult to explain to them the changed situation. In the morning session, only one official representing the Tata Consultancy Services was seen clearing the doubts of the people seeking issuance of passports. The TCS is the Government partner in rendering various passport related services through the PSKs.

The local officials were not able to provide clear information when an applicant sought to know whether tatkal applications could be accepted here on Friday. The reply was that the services were formally launched in Hyderabad and further information could be accessed by calling up Passport Seva toll-free number 1800-258-1800.

Timings

This is the only number to contact for any enquiry and information regarding PSK Vijayawada also.

The PSK will function from 9.50 a.m. to 5 p.m. on all days except Saturday and Sunday and holidays. Three to four officials of the Regional Passport Office and 10 to 12 employees of the TCS are involved in rendering services at this PSK.

Once the PSK comes into full functioning, the passport applications will not be accepted at the post offices and also at the eSeva centres but the centres at the police commissionerate and the district superintendent's office will continue to function.

New flyover coming up ...

Flyover work is in progress.



http://www.deccanchronicle.com/chann...la-flyover-477

The state government sanctioned Rs.36 crore for the construction of a flyover connecting Gunadala centre and Nunna village crossing via Vijayawda-Howrah railway line near Gunadala railway station, Ryves, Eluru canals and Buda-meru rivulet


The state government sanctioned Rs.36 crore for the construction of a flyover connecting Gunadala centre and Nunna village crossing via Vijayawda-Howrah railway line near Gunadala railway station, Ryves, Eluru canals and Buda-meru rivulet.

The proposed flyover is 1.2 km in length and expected to facilitate the expansion of the city towards north, particularly between Gunadala railway track and Nunna. Proposal for the construction of the flyover at Gunadala railway track has been pending for more than a decade. Last date for finalisation of tenders ended on October 31 while the higher authorities will finalise within two months.

The works are expected to be grounded after two months, said the executive engineer, Mr Raghavendra Rao. The two-lane flyover will be 409 metres in length towards Nunna from Gunadala railway station while the rest of the 560 metres will pass towards Gunadala.

Though the city grew fast during the last two decades towards Poranki and Kankipadu on Bandar Road and Gannavaram towards Eluru Road, northern side of the city, particularly Gunadala area, remained backward due to lack of infrastructure facilities. Eluru canal, Ryves canal, Budameru rivulet and Vijayawda-Howrah railway track are the major hurdles for the development of Gunadala area.

Now with the construction of the Gunadala flyover, people can settle in the new colonies that are likely to emerge in a few years towards the north of the city. The Gunadala flyover will be divided into two routes in Ganadala. Commuters passing from Nunna to Gunadala can pass in two directions, towards Ramavarappadu ring and towards SRR and CVR College.The flyover will be beneficial to the commuters travelling from Eluru Road, Auto Nagar, Mogalraj-puram towards Nunna, Agiripalli and Nuzvid. The railway department is ready to sanction funds for the construction of its portion, said the divisional railway manager Mr Anurag.

For the residents of Madhuranagar and its adjacent colonies, the decision of the Vijayawada Municipal Corporation (VMC) to build a wall on Narlavariveedhi to prevent traffic from entering Machavaram through the bridge on Ryves Canal, has come as a big shock. The decision was taken by the civic authorities in view of the ongoing bus rapid transit system (BRTS) works that connects the Karl Marx Road near Gunadala Mary Matha temple.

“The authorities say that they would provide a vent for vehicular traffic on the left side that would take them to the Padavalarevu Centre. It is a round-about-route and people would be required to travel an extra three kilometres to reach Karl Marx Road. For people of Machavaram to reach Madhuranagar, they would have to travel all the way to Chuttugunta Centre (BSNL Bhavan) and pass through Alluri Seetharama Raju Bridge to reach Madhuranagar. It is time-consuming,” said Mr. Srinivas Yadav, a local Telugu Desam leader. The locals, protesting the VMC decision, have launched a relay hunger strike that has entered the seventh day on Monday.

“This bridge on Ryves Canal is serving the people for over 50 years and is strong enough to serve the people for a few more decades. Instead of strengthening a wall they (VMC officials) should provide a subway provision beneath the BRTS road. When they are spending over Rs.150 crore for BRTS, they can spend just one crore for the subway which will benefit the local residents especially the students, patients, workers and motorists. A subway will save them time,” said Mr. Raju, a CPI(M) leader. Many locals said that in case of an emergency, it will be difficult to reach the hospitals on Karl Marx Road in time.

“A subway is a viable alternative and the civic authorities should respect the sentiments of the locals. It is unfortunate that the ruling Congress Party leaders are mum on this issue,” said Mr. Yadav. Ms. Latha Veeraswamy, a local, said that it was surprising that when contacted the VMC engineers said that the subway proposal was not practical as it was encroaching on the properties of few residents.

Traffic to be allowed on old bridge of Ryves Canal

Political parties and people's organisations have thanked the Vijayawada Municipal Corporation for taking a decision to allow traffic on the old bridge of Ryves Canal once the new six-lane BRTS Road being under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) is completed at Madhuranagar.

On Wednesday, they met Municipal Commissioner G. Ravi Babu and thanked him for taking the decision to allow vehicular traffic, particularly two-wheelers, on Narlavariveedhi, which connects Madhuranagar and the adjacent localities with Karl Marx Road.

Mr. Babu cleared the doubts of many on the diversion of traffic of small vehicles once the six-lane road was completed, and said no one would be put to inconvenience.

He clarified that the old bridge would not be closed down even after completion of the new bridge.

“As usual, small vehicles will be allowed on the left and right of the BRTS Road. It was announced earlier through the media,” he reminded.

It may be recalled that political parties launched a relay hunger strike demanding that the VMC not build a wall to prevent traffic from entering Machavaram and also on the diversion of the traffic on the left side of the BRTS Road towards Padavalarevu.
