MUMBAI: In a major breather for the five million people of Pune, the Maharashtra government has given the green signal for the state's second Metro rail project after Mumbai here, a top official said.
"In the first phase, it will connect Ramwadi-Wanaz on an elevated track at a cost of Rs.2,593 crore," the official said after a late-night cabinet meeting Wednesday.
Thereafter, the second phase, around 44 km long, and costing Rs.5,391 crore will be taken up to connect Shivaji Nagar-Hinjewadi-Deccan-Bundgarden-Swargate-Katraj-Pimpri & Chinchwad-Nigdi, which are largely industrial areas.
The entire project is expected to be completed within five years, including three years for the construction alone.
The state has approved

While Sangeet junction - Tarnaka road widening muddle between Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) and South Central Railway (SCR) continues, hassled commuters face danger to life due to power equipment in the middle of the road.
It has been months since sections of the road near the junction – from St. John's church and another stretch towards the railway quarters was widened and metal carpeted. Yet, electric poles and power equipment maintenance boxes are not relocated, obstructing the carriageway, defeating the very purpose of road widening.

NEW DELHI: Despite the recurring train accidents, railways are yet to put the much-needed safety measures, including installation of TPWS and replacement of coaches on fast track to prevent mishaps in future.
The TPWS, an advanced European technology ensures automatic application of emergency brakes in case the loco driver jumps the red signal.
Besides lagging in safety measures, there are large number of safety category posts lying vacant in railways for years.
At least 30 passengers were killed and about 100 were injured in two accidents within the span of 10 days recently.
While 25 passengers were killed, 16 of them charred to death, and 43 injured when the Hampi

Express rammed into a stationary goods train on May 22 at Penukonda, five were killed and more than 50 hurt when 11 coaches of Howrah-Dehradun Express were derailed near Jaunpur on May 31.
The Kakodkar committee on safety has strongly recommended installation of TPWS in major routes and replacement of all conventional coaches with LHB coaches in express and mail trains as a safety measure.
On September 13 last year, the Chennai Beach-Vellore Cantonment train had rammed into the stationary Arakkonam-Katpadi passenger train after the driver jumped the red signal near Chennai.
"The accidents at Penukonda and Arakkonam could have been averted had there been TPWS in the route," said a senior Railway Ministry official in safety directorate.
According to the 12th Five-Year Plan, railways will install TPWS on a 3,200 km route at an estimated cost of Rs 3,200 crore across the country. While the target for 2012-13 and 2013-14 are 800 km and 1200 respectively, it seems unlikely that the target will be achieved.
