    Mumbai Coastal road's first phase gets green panel nod, work likely to begin in October

    [​IMG]

    The coastal road cleared its last major hurdle, after the Union environment ministry's expert committee approved work on the first phase of the total 29.22-km road connecting Marine Drive to Kandivli. Work on the Marine Drive-Bandra stretch is likely to begin in October and be completed in four years.

    The expert appraisal committee of the ministry of environment, forest and climate change gave conditional approval to the first phase of the coastal road. The minutes will be sent to the ministry which will issue the notification. Municipal commissioner Ajoy Mehta said work on the coastal road will start from mid-October.

    In the first phase, the BMC will build a 10 km toll-free road between Marine Drive and the Worli end of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. Plans for the second phase are still being discussed.

    The eight-lane road will have four interchanges, all with double-decker ramps. The interchanges will encourage motorists travelling shorter distances to use the coastal road, which will, in turn, help decongest the city's internal roads. Sources said when complete, the entire coastal road can be covered in around half an hour, assuming a speed of 80 km per hour.

    The coastal road project required around two dozen approvals, but the BMC struggled to get environmental clearance from the Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority and the MoEF . Both had reservations over destruction of mangroves to construct the road but finally agreed on certain conditions, which include depositing 2% of the project's total cost to conserve coastal and marine biodiversity.

    The BMC is yet to get two `technical permissions', one from the traffic police to transport materials and another from the state government which is the default owner of any reclaimed land. The BMC is expediting tenders for the first phase, work for which has been divided into three parts.

    Will be interesting to see what Yogi/BJP can do in UP, for a long time it has been UP and Bihar perofming equally badly but if UP manages to start getting its act together the rulers in Bihar are going to be left badly exposed.

    The only thing he's been doing is banning this and that. Don't expect much from him.

    ADB signals funding approach shift to Indian states bordering China

    New Delhi: In what signals a shift in multilateral lending agencies’ approach to finance infrastructure projects in Indian border areas that abut China, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) on Thursday articulated its willingness to fund projects in India’s north eastern (NE) states, including Sikkim.

    This is significant because previously multilateral lending agencies, including the World Bank, have been unwilling to fund projects in the so-called disputed border states of India. The ADB stand follows Japan’s ambassador to India Kenji Hiramatsu’s statement in February that his country was willing to help India develop infrastructure in its northeast region—seen as sensitive as parts of the region are claimed by China.

    In response to a query from
    Mint during a press briefing in New Delhi, Kenichi Yokoyama, ADB’s country director, said that some of the northeastern states can be categorized as less developed states—the Manila-headquartered agency’s focus area as part of its new country strategy for India.

    ADB plans to invest $5 billion over the next five years for creating infrastructure in less developed Indian states.

    “It has to be demand driven,” added Yokoyama.

    As part of Japan’s growing engagement with India, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) had first signalled its willingness in 2015 to
    finance infrastructure projects in Indian areas bordering China.

    In 2009, China protested the inclusion of a water management project in Arunachal Pradesh, parts of which India’s northern neighbour lays claim to, as part of a $2.9 billion loan that ADB had promised India.

    The stance may strengthen India’s stand on its frequent border disputes with China. India has stepped up efforts to accelerate development of infrastructure along the country’s frontier in the backdrop of Chinese troops making repeated incursions into Indian territory.

    In principle approval to convert 51,300 km of state roads to NHs

    The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has approved “In-Principle” declaration of about 51,300 km length of state roads as new National Highways subject to the outcome of their Detailed Project Reports (DPRs). The declaration of state roads as new National Highways is done from time to time depending upon the requirement of connectivity, inter-se-priority and availability of funds.

    The State roads are declared as new NHs on the basis of well established principles. The criteria for this include roads running through length, breadth of the country, connecting adjacent countries, national capital with state capitals, mutually the state capitals, major ports, non-major ports, large industrial centers or tourist centers, roads meeting very important strategic requirement in hilly and isolated area, arterial roads which enable sizeable reduction in travel distance and achieve substantial economic growth thereby, roads which help opening up large tracts of backward area and hilly regions (other than strategically important ones), achieving a National Highways grid of 100 km, etc.

    The total length of NHs in the country as on 31st March, 2014 was about 91,287 km. This has been enhanced to about 1,15,435 km at present. Further, the Ministry has also taken up detailed review of NHs network with a view to develop road connectivity to border areas, development of coastal roads including road connectivity for non-major ports, improvement in the efficiency of National Corridors, development of Economic Corridors, Inter Corridors and Feeder Routes along with integration with Sagarmala, etc., under the proposed Bharatmala Pariyojana. During its meeting on 16th June, 2017 the Public Investment Board (PIB) has recommended the proposal for Phase-I of Bharatmala Pariyojana for consideration of Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) for investment approval.

    This information was given by Minster of State for Road Transport & Highways and Shipping, Shri Pon. Radhakrishnan in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today.

    An investment of Rs.14,916 crore under the Special Accelerated Road Development Programme for North East (SARDP-NE) and Rs.4,095 crore under National Highway (Original) were made during the last two years for strengthening the road infrastructure in the north eastern region of the country.

    The roads under SARDP-NE were approved by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs while the development of highways under NH (O) are taken up on the basis of inter-se priority, traffic volume and availability of funds.

    This information was given by Minster of State for Road Transport & Highways and Shipping, Shri Pon. Radhakrishnan in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today.
