On this past Friday, tunneling work underneath Chennai’s busy Anna Salai resumed after 14 months of inactivity! The 4.5 km May Day Park – AG-DMS section (package UAA-02) had been abandoned in May 2015 by the Gammon-Mosmetrostroy JV due to financial issues, and after conducting two rounds of bidding, the Chennai Metro Rail Corporation in May 2016 awarded Afcons Infrastructure with a contract to complete the balance tunneling work.

the return direction flight no. 1013 will take off from Vizag at 2.20 p.m. and land in Vijayawada at 3.20 p.m. and take off from there at 3.40 p.m. to land in Tirupati at 4.45 p.m.
SpiceJet fares for Vijayawada start from around Rs.2,100.
The Railways and APS RTC have already announced special services for the Krishna Pushkaralu.
Mangipudi Sai Srinivas, engineer from the city working in Africa, who was held hostage by unidentified persons and released after 18 days in captivity, was longing to meet his family members.
His wife Sri Lalita went to receive him at the Mumbai Airport. His son and daughter were eagerly awaiting him at their home in the city. “The Air India flight from Mumbai to Vizag via Raipur, which was scheduled to leave Mumbai at 10 a.m. on Sunday was delayed by one-and-a-half hours in Mumbai due to some technical problem,” said Mr. Srinivas on Sunday night.
There are complaints that the AI 952 Dubai – Vizag flight via Hyderabad is getting frequently delayed between Hyderabad and Vizag. A few weeks ago the arrival of this flight in Vizag was delayed by one-and-a-half hours and the worst part was that those waiting to receive their relatives were not given information on the delay by the airline officials.

While most KSRTC bus commuters stayed indoors or used private transport to reach their destinations in view of the strike by KSRTC Staff and Workers Federation on Monday, the number of passengers travelling by trains too reported a marked decline in Mysuru.
Contrary to expectations that the number of train passengers will surge due to the strike, sources in the railway station in Mysuru said the number of outbound passengers from Mysuru had dipped. “We had sold a total of 9,114 tickets for about 15 trains that left Mysuru by 1.30 p.m. on Monday. This is significantly lower than the normal number of tickets sold for trains leaving Mysuru on a Monday. By 1.30 p.m., we would have normally sold around 12,000

to 13,000 tickets,” the source said.
The 15 trains that had left Mysuru by 1.30 pm included the trains leaving towards Bengaluru, Hassan and Nanjangud. Roughly, 25,000 tickets are sold from Mysuru railway station every day. “By the end of the day today, we may barely reach 19,000 to 20,000 tickets”, the source added. Sources have attributed the dip in train passengers departing out of Mysuru to the KSRTC strike. “Passengers may have cancelled their plans to travel in view of the strike. The reasons could also include the absence of connecting travel by KSRTC bus elsewhere. ”, the source added.Meanwhile, Senior Divisional Commercial Manager of South Western Railway, Mysuru, K. Anil Kumar said Tipu Express operating between Mysuru and Bengaluru was provided with three additional stoppages in view of the KSRTC strike.
Normally, Tipu Express stops only at Mandya. But, the train was provided with additional stoppages at Ramanagaram, Channapatna and Kengeri, he added.
