SHIMLA: The first proposed smart city of Himachal PradeshDharamshala – is all set to have a 12km passenger unibus skyway system covering Dharamshala and McLeodganj as the existing roads connecting two towns have been congested. With the ever increasing number of vehicles, there is no scope of widening the roads. To execute this ambitious project, a company from Belarus has been engaged which for last two days is conducting the preliminary study to find the possibility.

Dharamshala besides being the headquarter of Tibetan government-in-exile is also home to the Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama due to which it is frequented by large number of foreign tourists and Hollywood actors. Construction of cricket stadium has also brought the town on international map.

The suburbs of Dharamshala include McLeodganj, Bhagsunath, Dharamkot, Naddi, Forsyth Ganj, Kotwali Bazaar, Kacheri Adda, Dari, Ramnagar, Sidhpur, and Sidhbari. Over the years, Dharamshala is facing traffic congestion and parking problem.

Seeing heavy rush of vehicles causing congestion on the roads and resulting into frequent traffic jams, Dharamshala municipal corporation has come out with the proposal to have a skyway project for the hill-town.

In a state where frequent road accidents kill over 1,000 people each year, proposed system is being seen as a safe mode of transportation for residents. Innovative suspended wheeled vehicles would operate above the ground on the innovative rail and string elevated structure, sources said. They said that location of track structure above the ground enhances safety of movement by about 100 times while anti-derailment system increases traffic safety by another 10 times.

Himachal Pradesh urban development minister Sudhir Sharma, who is also MLA from Dharamshala, said skyway is considered as the most cost-effective, environment friendly and safest of all known advanced transport systems. He said that survey of Dharamshala and McLeodganj would be conducted by the company after which a report would be prepared after which cost of the project would be worked out. “We are expecting that report would be prepared by February after which work would be started on the first skyway project of Himachal Pradesh,” he added.


India, State of Jharkhand. Several months of work with an Indian industrial investment group have completed successfully. This cooperation began in September last year after InnoTrans 2016. Participation of the SkyWay Group of Companies in one of the world’s largest transport exhibitions aroused interest to SkyWay transport among representatives of India. This was preceded by several visits of the President of SkyWay Group of Companies Anatoly Yunitskiy to India, negotiations at different levels of government including a presentation for Nitin Gadkari, Minister for road transport, highways and cargo traffic of the country with the population of 1.3 billion people. The staff of SkyWay Technologies Co. prepared pre-Project proposals and, after introducing amendments from the Indian party, started the feasibility study of projects. As a result, a trilateral investment agreement has been signed. The large-scale Project consists of three parts: an urban test section, a transport system for the capital of the State and connection of two cities with a line of high-speed transport. A comprehensive solution to complicated transport problems in the State is estimated at USD 922 million, while it will create about 1,000 jobs. The next steps on the project are: – land allocation – structuring of investment transactions – start of design and survey work Note. Ranchi is the capital of the State of Jharkhand, Jamshedpur is its largest city. The State concentrates 40% of the mineral resources of India, it is one of the most industrialized States in the country. It has developed metallurgy, chemical industry and heavy engineering industry; the state mines coal, iron and uranium ore.

"Hidden manna from the promised "White Stone", Rev 2:17 P1446:5, 131:3.3 . . . It is evil to see sin where there is no sin; TO SEE NO SIN WHERE THERE IS SIN. Evil is the path of FALSE DOCTRINES. Those who avoid evil BY SEEING THINGS AS THEY ARE gain joy by thus embracing the truth. Make an end of your misery BY LOATHING SIN. When you look up to the Noble One, turn away from sin with a whole heart. Make no apology for evil; MAKE NO EXCUSE FOR SIN. By your efforts to make amends for past sins you acquire strength to resist future tendencies thereto. Restraint is born of repentance. Leave no fault unconfessed to the Noble One. 131:3.4 (1447.1) “Cheerfulness and gladness are the rewards of deeds well done and to the glory of the Immortal. No man can rob you of the liberty of your own mind. When the faith of your religion has emancipated your heart, when the mind, like a mountain, is settled and immovable, then shall the peace of the soul flow tranquilly like a river of waters. Those who are sure of salvation are forever free from lust, envy, hatred, and the delusions of wealth. While faith is the energy of the better life, nevertheless, must you work out your own salvation with perseverance. If you would be certain of your final salvation, then make sure that you sincerely seek to fulfill all righteousness. Cultivate the assurance of the heart which springs from within and thus come to enjoy the ecstasy of eternal salvation. ~~ Urantia Book Paper 131 ~~
