Smarter Pune



The ambitious Smart City project of PM Modi enters its fifth year. As far as Maharashtra’s second largest city Pune is concerned, a lot of work is going on and in the pipeline.



According to observations made by the Pune Smart City Development Corporation Ltd (PSCDCL) since February, it was noted that the nine metre- long electric buses have achieved around 20 per cent rise in revenue over the old buses. Also, a positive impact was observed on the pollution emitted by public transport buses. The city also bagged the best smart city award recently along with the New Delhi. Our cover story takes a stalk of the status of the smart city Pune project.



Development and construction bring in equipment. The most people friendly equipment, beyond doubt has been the Backhoe Loader. The construction industry is generating a huge demand for backhoe loaders for performing various tasks. The increase in adoption of backhoe loaders, the rise in road construction activities, and the number of power projects have driven the growth of the global backhoe loader market.



Growing infrastructure transformation & construction activities and the resultant utilization of equipment for lifting heavy loads are accelerating the crane market growth. The industry is witnessing several technical advancements, which include the integration of Internal Combustion Engines (ICE), electric motors, or hydraulic systems. All these transformations increase machine efficiency and offer productivity in the application industries. To know more, turn to our story on Tower Cranes.



Lately, with time-saving techniques becoming the norm for construction activities, modernizing of traditional scaffolding and formwork business has gained relevance. During the last few years, this industry has witnessed a lot of innovations both in technique as well as materials used in the business. Simultaneously, cost-effective scaffolding and formwork solutions that allow companies to achieve economies of scale in the construction industry have seen a surge in demand.
