Delhi govt built 23 flyovers in 45 yrs CM Kejriwal

first_imgNew Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Tuesday inaugurated the 2.85 km signal-free new RTR Flyover, and said a few more such projects will come up in the national capital before the end of his government’s tenure. The elevated corridor of Rao Tula Ram Flyover, built at a cost of Rs 205 crore on the Outer Ring Road, will help decongest the area and prove a boon for people commuting towards the IGI airport from south Delhi and Noida.

In the last four-and-a-half years, our (AAP) government has built 23 flyovers,” Kejriwal said in his address after inaugurating the flyover. “We do our work, but we don’t advertise much. Now, it is for the people to spread word about the work we have done in the last four-and-a-half years,” he said. Hitting out at his detractors, the AAP chief said after the inauguration of the Signature Bridge, a member of the opposition party had sought to take credit of that project.

The Delhi government has worked a lot in education, health and other sectors, and our work will speak,” he said. Interacting with reporters after the event, he said the AAP government not only worked on mega infrastructure projects but also built roads, sewage lines and provided other facilities in unauthorised colonies to reach out to the ordinary people. Asked if more projects were in the offing before the end of his government’s tenure, Kejriwal said, “Yes, a few more such projects will come up soon.” The chief minister said the RTR Flyover was the 23rd flyover to be built by his government in the last four-and-a-half years. The newly-built flyover branches out of Munirka Flyover and ends before Army Research and Referral Hospital near Subroto Park close to National Highway-8. The construction of this elevated corridor started in November 2014. It was to be completed by November 2016, but missed several deadlines. Delhi PWD Minister Satyendar Jain, RK Puram MLA Pramila Tokas and AAP MLA Somnath Bharti were also present at the event which took place on a section of the flyover.last_img read more

Rio Tinto has successfully deployed AutoHaul™ automated long distance rail network

first_imgRio Tinto says it has successfully deployed AutoHaul™, establishing the world’s largest robot and first automated heavy-haul, long distance rail network. Since completing the first loaded run in July, Rio Tinto has steadily increased the number of autonomous journeys across its world-class iron ore operations in Western Australia in a controlled and safe manner, with over 1 million kilometres now travelled autonomously.Rio Tinto Iron Ore Managing Director Rail, Port & Core Services Ivan Vella said: “The safe and successful deployment of AutoHaul™ across our network is a strong reflection of the pioneering spirit inside Rio Tinto. It’s been a challenging journey to automate a rail network of this size and scale in a remote location like the Pilbara, but early results indicate significant potential to improve productivity, providing increased system flexibility and reducing bottlenecks.”“Over the coming months we will continue to refine our autonomous operations to ensure we are able to maximise value. We continue to work closely with drivers during this period and do not expect to make any redundancies in 2019 as a result of the deployment of AutoHaul™.”The A$940 million AutoHaul™ programme is focused on automating trains transporting iron ore to Rio Tinto’s port facilities in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The network is the world’s first heavy-haul, long distance autonomous rail operation. Rio Tinto operates about 200 locomotives on more than 1,700 km of track in the Pilbara, transporting ore from 16 mines to four port terminals.The average return distance of these trains is about 800 km with the average journey cycle, including loading and dumping, taking about 40 hours. Locomotives carrying AutoHaul™ software are fitted with on-board cameras allowing for constant monitoring from the Operations Centre. All public rail crossings on the network are fitted with CCTV cameras and have been upgraded to the highest safety standards.last_img read more
