Yesterday (09:10)   Missing the good for the trees? Metro-III means lesser carbon dioxide despite loss of greenery

Mass Transit System To Cut 10,000 Tonnes of Emissions: Study
There's been much heartburn over loss of green cover and the impact on the environment owing to metro rail work in south Mumbai. But one fact that's barely got any mention is that a metro connecting the island city to the suburbs would reduce 6.6 lakh vehicle trips daily, equivalent to a reduction of 6,000 to 10,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (Co2) emissions a year. Given the amount of Co2 trees absorb, it would be akin to having an additional 2.5 lakh-4.5 lakh trees across Mumbai, according to a study .
The

33-km Metro III line from Colaba to Seepz via Bandra, being built by Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation and its consultants Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, would also help decrease particulate matter, hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide by an equal amount over the city's atmosphere.
The study, in particular, looked at the impact on the Aarey stretch, where activists have opposed felling of trees for a metro rail yard. The number of trees that would have to be cut down for the yard in, what is one of Mumbai's few green lungs, is about 2,300.
Going by accepted standards, Co2 absorbed per tree is 0.022 tonnes a year. Constructing the yard at Aarey would cause a drop in absorption of Co2 by 56 tonnes a year, not to speak of the impact on ecology of the area. However, reduction in Co2 and other pollutants by presence of the metro would be far greater, the benefits thus far outweighing the disadvantages, suggests the study done by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation.
“Metro will eliminate almost 200 times the amount of Co2 added after cutting of trees at Aarey. And over a period of time, replanted trees will also start contributing in terms of absorbing Co2 to bring a sea change in transport and pollution in Mumbai,“ said an MMRC official. A drop in vehicle trips due to the metro will ease road congestion and increase public transport speed, especially buses which are at present slowing down. Congestion on Mumbai roads is estimated at 430 vehicles a km against 91 in Delhi.
Michael Pereira and Avinash Gupte of Mumbai Underground, a pressure group comprising professionals and citizen activists in the field of transport, are convinced the metro is the ultimate panacea for clogged and polluted traffic system.“The underground railway is the answer to traffic problems and pollution,“ they said. “It will be criminal to delay the metro 6070 years after it was first mooted,“ said Pereira.

It is time for courts/environment ministry to see the environmental impact of projects in totality and not blocking them by just counting the number of trees cut and grant the clearance to such projects on actual merit.
Even if a project helps decrease the chemical and dust pollution, the clearance should come at express speed but at the same time genuine efforts should be made to plant trees in nearby area to the extent possible so at to make the environment even better than before.

* TTEs have modest targets of revenue collection from ticket less travellers, which is easily achieved. A large number of paxs especially on relatively shorter routes travel without ticket in connivance with TTEs which is financially bleeding IR
* Long time back, I read an article about a TTE of WRly, who did his duty sincerely and individually collected fine in crores in a year inspite of being posted in premium train like MUM-ADI Shatabdi.

Yesterday (09:12)   Railways eyes Rs 10k cr revenue boost via mega ad platform

❤ WAP7 ❤~   1071 news posts
Entry# 2248741   News Entry# 300603         Tags   Past Edits
The Indian Railways is drawing up plans to roll out two lakh screens across the country , targeting revenue to the tune of Rs 10,000 crore in the next 10 years from this mega advertising platform.
Major railway stations will soon have giant digital screens to showcase real-time passenger information and also help the national transporter monetise the opportunity through digital advertising. The Rail Display Network (RDN) is seen as a crucial platform for the transporter to raise funds from non-ticketing sources and strengthen the interface with passengers.
Several top global firms such

as Google are keen to take part in the project and help design the advertising technology .Microsoft and Reliance have also shown interest, sources said.
The screens will also help improve the appearance of station premises as they will replace all the other media currently in place for advertisements and relaying of passenger-related information. “This is expected to be the biggest advertising platform outside television,“ said an official who did not wish to be identified.
To begin with, the plan is to install RDN at around 400 major stations (A category). The ten der is likely to be awarded by May. Eventually , the proposal is to install about two lakh digital display screens (LED pixel screens and LCD screens) at 2,175 ra ilway stations across the country. The display infrastructure created will be utilised for commercial advertising in defined time frames and formats.
Loco pilots to fast on duty for 36 hours
A Left-affiliated train drivers' association has called for a nationwide protest from 8am on Tuesday wherein pilots will fast for 36 hours while operating trains. The All India Loco Running Staff Association has said the protest is a bid to draw the government's attention “to their unsafe ... working conditions... including 15-20 hour shifts“. Another association, Indian Railways Loco Running Men Organisation, said the stir was “politically motivated“. “We support the demands... but driving trains while fasting is putting people's lives at risk,“ IRLRO's Sanjay Pandi said.
