material which has been shipped from Israel and Austria is still en route Officials expect that the mix will reach Mumbai by the end of this month Following the directions of the Bombay High Court after several rounds of testing of material from various international and national agencies the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) roads department had purchased 38 tonnes of material from two firms — Eco Green Infrastructure Development Austria and Smart Age Products Israel The mix cost the civic body around Rs 70 lakh said an official “Since the material is heavy it was shipped from both Israel and Austria last month While the first shipment is expected to arrive by June 22 the second is likely to reach by June 30” said a civic official The official added that once the ships arrive the material will be stored at BMC’s asphalt plant and will be sent to the ward office as per requirement “The material is very expensive and we have to ensure that it is not misused We thus cannot divide it and give to all the wards We will closely monitor the use and detailed records will be maintained” added an official He insisted that there is no delay in the arrival of the material as heavy rains will only occur in July Meanwhile as per the India Meteorological Department monsoon is set to hit the city from June 9 The disaster management department has identified six days of high tide in June six in July four in August and two in September The highest tide measuring 497 metres is expected to hit the city on June 25 Last year the condition of the roads during the monsoon was so bad that the HC took up the matter as a suo-motu public interest litigation The court had directed the BMC to consult with experts from IIT and Central Road Research Institute and ensure that material of better quality is used this year Before the HC order the BMC used to manufacture its pothole mix called the ‘cold mix’ which comprises bitumen However the material was unable to withstand heavy rains even for a few weeks Later the BMC decided to purchase a small amount for this year and since the material was expensive the civic body decided to set up their own mixing plant to produce the material similar to the one they have purchased Civic officials however said the expression of interest for the project of setting up the mixing plant at Worli failed to get enough response from the bidders “We floated the expression of interest for the project on May 4 and after the deadline on May 24 we received a response from only one company We have now extended the time period till the first week of June” said an official He added that the plan is to modify the existing plant at Worli so both the new material and the cold mix can be produced simultaneously The official pointed out that bidders will be required to submit a sample of their material which will be generated by the modified plant “Before the final specifications and cost estimate of the plant is decided the material will be tested by a technical committee comprising three engineers from the roads department one mechanical engineer and one professor from IIT Bombay” he said For all the latest Mumbai News download

miraculous” return of international cricket to Pakistan even though it was satisfied with the successful staging of the Independence Cup in Lahore “Returning full-time international cricket back to Pakistan is not going to be an overnight miracle It has to take time The PSL final was the first step this is the second” ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said “We have now shown that events can be staged in one city over a short period of time in a Twenty20 format Now the next steps have to be taken meaning can they be rolled out in more than one city over a longer period of time Probably the next steps would be a tour by a Full Member country as opposed to a composite team” Satisfied with the conduct of the tournament Richardson said this will give a lot of confidence to big teams such as Australians and South Africans “I am very satisfied Back in 2009 the confidence in the security situation in Pakistan was obviously at an all-time low And following on over the past 12 to 24 months the improvements made by the Pakistan security forces was a catalyst for moving from that phase of playing in neutral territories to try to make an effort to bring international cricket back to Pakistan” he said “The main objective of that is to try to build confidence in the likes of the Australians South Africans and other countries that the threat can be managed and this tour has shown — that is the case “The security arrangements were unprecedented yes they were severe but above all everybody realised that it is all very well to have a security plan on paper but can it be implemented And that’s a question they answered in the affirmative” Richardson added Pakistan clinched the three-match series against World XI 2-1 after winning the third and final T20 by 33 runs last night at Lahore ICC Director Giles Clarke who attended the first two matches said the World XI received extraordinary reception at Lahore and the event will a big step towards international cricket returning to Pakistan “The reaction of the Pakistanis who were at the ground is something I have never seen in my life I think this courageous team its management and all the people in Pakistan have demonstrated that it is possible for overseas players to come to Pakistan and show their skills” he said “It has been a fantastic tournament From my point of view as Chairman of the ICC’s Pakistan Task Team I am very pleased that we have accomplished this and I am sure the players will talk to their colleagues and we will see the return of bilateral international cricket to Pakistan” Richardson who attended the second T20I said the reason behind staging the Independence Cup was to show that it is possible to safely host a tournament in Pakistan “One of the main reasons for staging the tour was as a stepping stone to building the confidence that even though there may be some danger to staging sports events or visiting Pakistan the Pakistan security agencies are more than capable of mitigating that threat” he said “The security arrangements having being implemented so well we can call it a success The players that came on the tour witnessed the security arrangements firsthand and can go back and report back that although there may be some level of risk it can be managed successfully” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsUpdated: February 26 2016 1:18 am Suresh Prabhu Related News Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu must be commended for being candid about the “two headwinds” being faced by the transport behemoth that are badly impacting its finances and ability to be a growth driver for the economy The Indian Railways’ (IR’s) gross traffic receipts for the current fiscal are slated to fall short of the budgeted target of Rs 183578 crore by Rs 15744 crore with the ongoing slowdown hurting both goods as well as passenger earnings Even worse is the projected increase of roughly Rs 28600 crore in staff costs and pension outgo in 2016-17 mainly courtesy implementation of the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations The two together have undermined the internal resource position of the IR just when its investments are desperately required to kick start a far-from-buoyant economy Railway Budget 2016: Here’s What Suresh Prabhu Announced For The Passengers Viewed against these pressures it is understandable that Prabhu’s rail budget doesn’t seem to have much to offer While proposing a Plan size of Rs 121000 crore for 2016-17 a large part of the money for this appears to rely on “extra budgetary resources” — investments through special purpose vehicles/ joint ventures that would attract financing from foreign pension funds insurance companies and other extraneous sources The IR’s own works expenditure for 2015-16 amounted to Rs 60884 crore which itself fell below the original budget estimate of Rs 76575 crore For the coming fiscal this figure is placed at Rs 78660 crore which again may be difficult to meet in the current challenging scenario Prabhu is counting on cost savings from lower diesel prices and increased adoption of electric traction alongside entering into long-term agreements for procuring power directly at competitive rates It is doubtful though if these can fully compensate for the pressure on revenues and additional outgo due to the pay commission shock But even within these compulsions of having to run a tight ship Prabhu has done well to focus on a few big-ticket projects that can be potentially game-changing both for the IR and the wider economy Among them is the Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) that can radically slash transit time for goods Thankfully much of the land acquisition for the Delhi-Mumbai and Delhi-Kolkata corridors is already over Prabhu has promised that almost all the civil engineering contracts would be awarded before this fiscal ends and both corridors would be commissioned by 2019 Shifting freight traffic from existing tracks to the new corridors would release capacities helping increase speeds of passenger trains too on these trunk routes The rail budget has further proposed new DFCs connecting Delhi-Chennai Kharagpur-Mumbai and Kharagpur-Vijayawada If all these materialise they would be the biggest thing to have happened since the National Highways Development Project that truly changed the face of India For all the latest
