Improve air quality by system improvement
1. Digging of road sides for cable laying or laying pipeline etc. It is noticed after laying work is completed the contractor do not cover it properly with cement plaster. Contractor are allowed to leave the digged portion covered with loose dust. This remains there for years together and no body cares. PWD ignores it. When vehicles pass over it, dust spreads in to environment. This contribute more pollution than emission of vehicle.
We target at emission norms ignoring major pollutants. PWD and cable layers of various service providers of communication network are main culprits.
2. Delhi has poor system of garbage lifting. While sweeping of roads is done, the accumulated garbage is left in small collection on road side. There is no system to lift this garbage immediately. As a result either with wind or by vehicles this again mix in to environment resulting in dirty road and polluted air. Even Kolkata has a system that two sweeper work in tandom. One sweeps other lifts the garbage in a hand pulled cart and takes it to designated garbage place.
We need to improve systems. Such systematically introduced small steps can make a big difference. more
We can clear of the Air in the metro cities, in spite of the construction work, PWD digging and refilling, other such activities. We have the most sustainable and effective solution to restore the environment.
Only handicap is to make the government machinery work on a solution that is never endorsed by government.
If you want, we can discuss it further to make it happen. more
But in my opinion the problem is with third party inspection and certification of work, which is allotted to L1 bidder. The The third party monitoring agency is also finalize by tendering process, and if you see the price quoted by L1 agency is too low, Which is not sufficient to check the ingredients quality, thorough process and other parameters of the tender.
In my opinion, inspection, quantity control, and process control, maintaing safety and environmental parameters are very important issues, which should be properly checked by third party monitoring agency. But with such a small amount how L1 agency cross check and audit the massive work. They might be obliged by the contractor.
Government and verious departments need to look into this very sincerely.
If third party control is proper no waste or unused debris
Will be left on work site. more
