Govt wants to acquire it through consensus and avoid tension: CM
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has said that his government is committed to acquire the land sought by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) for the further development of Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode international airports.
‘There is opposition against the move to acquire the land and the government is determined to go ahead with the land acquisition for the further development of the airports,” the Chief Minister said in reply to a question by K. Muraleedharan.

AAI is putting pressure on the government to expedite the land acquisition and hand over the land to them. The facilities in the two airports had not gone up commensurate to the increase in traffic and air traffic movements, he said.
The Chief Minister said people’s representatives should create awareness among the local people to part with the land for the development of the airport.
“Responsible people participated in the stir and opposed the move initiated by the District Collector to acquire the land in Thiruvananthapuram. The government is not ready to abandon the land acquisition. Legal steps are before us. But, the government wants to acquire the land through consensus and avoiding tension,’ he said.
The Chief Minister said the government is positive towards the laying of the Thalaserry-Mysuru railway line. The Karnataka government is also positive for the new rail line, he added.
In reply to another query, the Chief Minister informed the House that the government has not initiated any step for the proposed High Speed Rail Corridor from the north to the south of the State.
The land acquisition for the four-laning of the National Highway is to be expedited and is to be completed in a time-bound manner, he told the House. Changes will be made in the compensation package if needed, the Chief Minister said.

The wait to use your mobile phones in the underground section of Namma Metro just got longer. The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL) officials say they are not to blame this time. Two months after the first service provider signed up to provide connectivity, others are yet to follow.
In March this year, one cell phone service provider – Reliance Jio – started providing services to customers who would travel the underground stretch between Cubbon Park and Magadi Road. This was possible only a year after the stretch was commissioned. The BMRCL had tied up with a company – American Tower Corporation (ATC) – to provide the infrastructure needed for broadcasting mobile signals underground.

on the project was delayed several times as time could not be allotted for the laying of cables in the tunnels.
However, work was completed in March this year and BMRCL invited service providers to sign up with ATC use the infrastructure.
Almost two months later, users are still not able to use their cell phones.
“It has been more than one year since they started services on this route. If cell phones connected to one provider work, why can’t the other companies also provide the service,” asks Anita R.K., who commutes to the Vidhana Soudha station daily.
“The companies have to approach ATC and sign an agreement with them. We are also on track to finish laying infrastructure for the underground section of Green Line. It will be complete in two months. It is up to the companies now to sign agreements and start providing the service,” a senior BMRCL official said.

The idea to have pizza delivered on a delayed train has collected a ton of reactions on Twitter
Not all superheroes wear capes - some, like this delivery man, bring you pizza when you are extremely hungry and stranded on a delayed train. In a tweet posted last week, Washington, D.C. resident Mitch Katz tweeted about pizza being delivered while he was stuck on a train. He tweeted: "Stuck on @amtrak 161  got hangry and problem solved." His tweet has since collected over 4,500 'likes' and 1,700 retweets.

This year, Chennai will spend around Rs. 100 crore to give itself a makeover
Two years after Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Smart Cities Mission, its implementation is likely to kick off in the city. Key smart city projects are likely to be cleared for administrative sanction by the Board of Directors of Chennai Smart City Ltd. on Wednesday, said sources in the Chennai Corporation.
Wednesday’s meeting will be the fourth board meeting of Chennai Smart City Ltd. The previous three meetings did not clear any proposal. Slated to cost Rs. 85

crore, the key projects to be cleared include constructing a new multi-level car parking facility, redevelopment of eight parks, redesigning of 23 roads, and development of a pedestrian plaza.
“Other important projects such as a traffic management system and phase 2 and 3 of the Pedestrian Plaza in T.Nagar will be implemented later. A detailed project report for many of the projects will be ready soon,” said an official.
Challenges to the implementation of Smart City Mission projects include opposition from traders in T.Nagar, hurdles in revision of parking charges for the city, implementation of Metro Rail project, lack of interest among other stakeholders in the private sector to support the projects, inadequate funding for smart city proposals and resettlement of hawkers. This year Chennai is likely to spend only around Rs. 100 crore for projects under the Smart City Mission.
The multi-level car parking can accommodate 230 cars and 550 two-wheelers, but there is a hitch. The corporation can’t collect charges for motorcycles, as per an existing government order. It can collect only Rs. 5 per hour for cars. This makes operation and maintenance of the multi-level parking facility an expensive proposition. The government has to revise the parking fee, an official said, adding that this would be discussed in the board meeting. Work on redevelopment of Panagal Park has been shelved due to the Metro Rail project in the area and civic officials expect a few other proposals in the city to be hit by subsequent phases of the Metro Rail.
41 projects
Officials say that at least 41 Smart City projects are expected to be implemented at an estimated cost of Rs. 1,300 crore in the city in the years to come. But implementation of many of these projects including 24x7 supply of water in T.Nagar is likely to be a challenge as a number of unauthorised buildings dot the city’s commercial district, officials say.

KOCHI: Ahead of launching Kochi Metro’s commercial operations, the Kochi Metro Rail Ltd (KMRL) will conduct the station service trials next week.
The trials will be similar to a mock drill, where the KMRL staff will travel in trains as normal passengers by undertaking all routine practices, including buying tickets, listening to announcements, boarding train and alighting at stations.

from looking into the technical aspects, the trials are mainly aimed at checking the efficiency of passenger facilities, escalators and other onboard services. The train will take around 25 minutes to reach Palarivattom from the Aluva station.
‘Platinum’ rating for stations
The 16 elevated stations between Aluva and Maharaja’s College in the metro corridor were on Tuesday awarded ‘platinum’ rating under the Elevated Stations Category by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC).
The elevated stations include Aluva, Pulinchodu, Companypady, Ambattukavu, Muttom, Kalamassery, Cochin University, Pathadipalam, Edappally, Changampuzha Park, Palarivattom, JLN Stadium, Kaloor, Lissie, MG Road and Maharaja’s College. “The certificate was given to KMRL taking into account the efficiency of various facilities at the 16 elevated stations in Phase I.
Various categories, including site selection and planning, water efficiency, energy efficiency, material conservation, indoor environmental quality, innovation in design and construction, were considered while awarding the ‘platinum’ rating. The facilities were monitored and checked by the authority of IGBC,” said the KMRL spokesperson.
Green protocol
The IGBC launched the Green Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) Version 1.0 rating system to encourage green concepts in the design, construction and operation of all new rail-based MRTS projects. The rating system helps address national priorities like conservation of natural resources, demand of side energy and water efficiency, adoption of renewable energy, management of waste and commuter health and comfort.
Vertical gardens
As part of green initiatives, KMRL will set up vertical gardens on every sixth pillar of the metro rail corridor. The vertical gardens are being set up as an innovative project under the Swachh Bharath Mission.
