Cycle track from Mahim fort to Bandra fort approved in Mumbai

I S Chahal, Municipal Commissioner, recently cleared a boardwalk or cycle track from Mahim fort to Bandra fort. Tenders for the project, which Maharashtra Tourism Minister Aaditya Thackeray proposed, will be released this week.

A boardwalk is a wooden stilted elevated walkway, walkway, or causeway.

The Rs 167 crore project will be built on a Design, Build, Operate, and Maintain (DBOM) basis and will be spread across the BMC's G North and H Westwards. The contractor plans to complete the project in 18 months and maintain it for the next 10 years.

According to BMC Additional Commissioner (Projects) P Velarasu, the stretch will be 3.59 km long and six metres wide, with 1.75 m of a walkway and 2.5 m of cycle track in between, and another 1.75 m of cycle track on the other side.

The boardwalk will be made of composite wood and the cycle track will be made of coloured bitumen. The substructure will be built on single monolithic poles with interconnecting primary and secondary beams, which will be erected on a pile foundation.

The project will be broken down into four parts.

The first section runs for 1.26 km from Bandra Fort to the proposed subway in Bandra West, the second for 0.74 km from the proposed subway to Bandra Reclamation Garden subway, the third for 1.52 km from Bandra Reclamation Garden subway to Mahim causeway subway, and the fourth for 77 km from Mahim causeway subway to Mahim Fort.

The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation, which owns the Sealink, will have to give the project contractor a NOC.

The BMC has already submitted documents to the agency, and the NOC is due in ten days. They will also need permission from the Maharashtra Maritime Board and the Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority, for which a proposal has been submitted and a meeting scheduled for next week.

Indian PM2.5's Oxidative Potential Far Exceeds Europe's

A recent study highlights the significantly higher oxidative potential (OP) of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in India compared to Europe. PM2.5, tiny particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres, can penetrate deep into the lungs and even enter the bloodstream, causing various health issues, including respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. The study, conducted by researchers from India and Europe, revealed that the OP of PM2.5 in Indian cities is five times greater than that in European cities.
