Mangaluru, Sept 27: As many as 65 cycling enthusiasts participated in the Cycles4Change Challenge to create awareness of the proposed 'dedicated cycling track' in Mangaluru today. 

Riders as young aged six to 60 pedalled the 10 km route and had first-hand experience of the Mangaluru Smart City cycling route touching schools and colleges. Senior members of We R Cycling guided young riders.

The ride was organised jointly by Mangaluru Smart City Limited (MSCL), in association with architect Niren Jain, We R Cycling and various Cycling clubs.

In the later phases, the cycling track will touch most of Mangaluru’s schools and colleges, so that students can use the track safely and regularly to commute to their institutions. The cycling track, once completed, will also be open to use for all cyclists.

WERC members made sure the cycling group moved smoothly and safely by halting and manning traffic at every junction.

Harniish Raj, the event coordinator and the representative of WERC for Mangaluru Smart city Cycles4Change committee instructed and educated riders on thumb rules of riding safely on public roads, and ensuring that masks were worn by all the participants as per government regulations for Covid-19 safety.

After the ride was complete a small session was conducted to share experiences of cyclists; suggestions and recommendations were presented to Mangaluru Smart City officials for deliberation and implementation to make Mangaluru safe for cyclists.

The Cycles for Change (C4C) challenge, a Union government initiative, aims to inspire Indian cities to implement quick cycling-friendly interventions in the wake of the pandemic, with the support of residents and assistance from experts. The ride took participants through the proposed pilot routes, which are expected to be developed as a dedicated corridor for cycling in the near future. 

Members of We R Cycling, Diwakar (Mayor of Mangaluru), Cycles4Change officials Niren Jain (Architect & Environmental Planners consultant to MSCL for transforming Mangaluru to a Cycling Friendly City), Mohammed Nazir (MD), Arun Rao (GM, technical), Chandrakant, Nodal officer for India cycle's 4change challenge, were present.

Nalin Kumar Kateel

Mangaluru, Sept 17: BJP Karnataka president and Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar Kateel on Thursday said the party would work to make Dakshina Kannada district free of drug menace and the sand mafia.

Addressing party workers after inaugurating a blood donation camp organised as part of the 'Seva Saptah' marking Prime Minister Narendra Modis 70th birthday, he said under the previous Congress rule, law and order had collapsed and mafias on the rise in the district.

He alleged that the district had witnessed a series of crimes, including murders, assaults and cattle thefts, under the Congress regime. Congress legislators were also backing the sand mafia, he said.

He further said since the BJP government took over in the state, no communal violence was reported in the district.

The violence over the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) was contained within no time, he said.

Kateel said the BJP government has succeeded in preventing crimes and is striving hard to check the drug menace. Attempts are also being made to free the district of plastic, he said. MLAs Vedavyas Kamath, Bharath Y Shetty and city Mayor Diwakar were among those present.

Udupi, Sept 26: A huge crack has appeared on the newly built bridge across River Souparnika at Arate village in Kundapur taluk of Udupi. According to eyewitnesses, broken steel rods were visible through the gap.

After the construction of the new bridge, vehicles travelling from Byndoor to Kundapura were allowed to travel on the new bridge and those travelling from Kundapur to Byndoor on the old bridge. In the wake of the cracks on the new bridge, two-way traffic has now been arranged on the old bridge.

“Kundapura police restricted vehicular movement on the new bridge (carriageway from Karwar to Udupi) and diverted the vehicles on the old bridge at Arate-Hosadu,” said Police Inspector Gopikrishna.

The nearly 1-km-long bridge was built during the four-lane work of national highway 66 between Kundapura and Goa border.

IRB West Coast Tollway Pvt. Ltd., a subsidiary of IRB Infrastructure that undertook the project in 2014 on BOOT basis, is yet to complete the four-lane work.

Residents along the highway stretch had been alleging substandard work in the execution of the project from the very beginning.

It was in 2011 that the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) proposed the widening and upgrading of the existing NH 17 (renaming it as NH-66). It was meant to reduce traffic, fuel consumption and accidents, and save time.

It was also claimed that the construction of the highway would bring development in all areas it passed through and led to economic growth of the region.
