''India has $hit infra, Bangladesh has world-class infra'' series

1. Bangladesh Railway





So overcrowded, yet their railway carries only 1/90th of passengers carried by Indian railways.

1627541328038.png


In comparison, the Indian railways carry 8 billion passengers annually. :lol:

Freight traffic is even more pathetic, 1/300th of freight hauled by the IR. :rofl:(Indian Railways transported1.2123 billion tonnes of freight in FY 2020)

1627541501981.png


Just 1/3rd of the track is broad gauge. No electrification whatsoever.

1627541799793.png


Even the most important rail line- Dhaka-Chittagong- is meter gauge & single line.

1627543263708.png


Out of the total length of 321 kilometers (199 mi) between Dhaka and Chittagong, only 102 kilometers (63 mi) is double-track and non-contiguous.

The condition of those tracks is, well... what you would normally expect in LDC-desh. 50% of the track has a MPS of 50 kmph. :rofl:

1627542168670.png


46 Km of Bangladesh Network has top speed of 95 KMPH, that's a whopping 1.5% of the total Bangladesh railway network. 50% of the total track has maximum speed limit of 50 KMPH. and 40% of the total Bangladesh railway network has a top speed of 25 KMPH!

BR, much unlike the BBS is ready to accept the reality. (that's shocking :eek1:)

1627545593935.png


That aside, the quality of maintenance work is..well... :laugh:

1627546106858.png


But the higher budget does not translate into better maintenance. And here comes the role of bamboos to buoy up the otherwise poorly maintained tracks loosely fitted with rusted fishplates, and missing bolts.

Recent news and photographs of bamboos being used to jack up train tracks in absence of the necessary iron joints and fishplates have made it to newspaper headlines in the country – causing much worry among train travellers in Bangladesh. :rofl:

Railway authorities have admitted that nowhere in the world are bamboos used in lieu of iron joints, bolts and fishplates. But they cannot explain why it is happening in Bangladesh.

A Bangladesh Railway official, stationed at the infrastructure wing, said they preferred bamboos to metal sheets or iron rods to keep the sleepers in place.

“This is because metal sheets or iron rods get stolen from the tracks and bridges,” he said, requesting anonymity.


Will continue...

1. Bangladesh Railway part 2: Rolling Stock

Sweatshop Shupa Pawa has only 272 locomotives, just 1/46 of what IR has. (IR has 12,729 locos) :lol:

C654.JPG


And only 1630 coaches, which is again is 1/46th of IR fleet.

1627548298338.png


And this is while having 1/8th population of India. :rofl: If you think that isn't bad enough...

1627548627093.png



According to the BR, it has 178 MG locomotives, of which 139 have crossed their 20-year economic life. And of its 90 BG locomotives, 55 have crossed economic life.

Heck, even a single Locomotive Production Unit of Indian Railways can produce more locomotives than entire BR fleet, same with the case of coaches.

More on Maintenance, this time from the World Bank.

1627549048604.png


Just 6 tamping machines? :rofl:Indian Railways has a fleet of 870 Track Maintenance Machines.

We also Manufacture them in India & export them even. Plasser India has 2 plants here & has produced 1000+ machines here.

1627549428839.png


But you know, we aren't as Industrialized as Bangladesh...

That's a 1950s vintage 1125 hp General Motors metre gauge locomotive hauling a container train through the swamp.

Compare that with this... Double stacked containers hauled by a 12,000 hp locomotive on an electrified double line.

some more interesting tidbits...

>>Looks like BDiots use 45 kg/m rail in BG tracks. IR uses much superior 60 kg/m 90 UTS rail.

Poor upgrades of two vital rail routes, agreed to by the premiers of Bangladesh and India, might fail to help the free flow of goods between three South Asian countries.

The Bangladesh Railway has decided to use 90-pound rail (one metre of rail weighing 90 pounds) on the two routes, which is not fit to carry heavier Indian wagons with 22.9-tonne axle load, experts say.

Railway engineers fear that the rehabilitated routes with 90-pound rail can give in any time ( :rofl: ) if the heavier Indian wagons frequently move on the Rajshahi-Rohanpur-Singhabad route and the Parbotipur-Birol-Radhikapur track in Dinajpur district.

In a letter to the railway headquarters, the railway’s general manager has suggested that the Indian wagons should carry 18-tonne axle load—4.9 tonnes below the Indian wagon capacity—for the safety of the tracks. Dhaka Tribune has obtained a letter in this regard.

Md Amzad Hossain, the additional director general (infrastructure), admitted the problem. “We will set condition for lower loads and put speed restriction on the Indian wagons,” Amzad told Dhaka Tribune.

He said making the track uniform with the Indian railway that uses 120-pound rail track involves a “huge cost”. (lol, kanjoosi BDiots :rofl:)“Ideally, we should use 100-pound rail in the routes having the prospect of international trade,” TA Chowdhury, an ex-director general of railway, told the Dhaka Tribune


>>They had more locomotives & freight traffic in 1969-70 than what they have now... :pound:

>>Also found these images of tracks & stations from the Dhaka-Chittagong route from Google Maps.

All of these are from 2019-2021. Have a look at the most sophisticated Railway infrastructure in South Asia. :pound::pound:

This a stamp released by Pakistan.
Pakis as usual try to lie their way out, but their own data is there.
was checking for this stamp, looks like paki have almost managed to erase this stamp from internet. one remaining pak based blog page is getting redirected to some nonsense.

Untreated sewage driving ‘superbug’ spread in urban water
Untreated sewage driving ‘superbug’ spread in urban water
Reaz Ahmad
  • Published at 04:27 pm July 16th, 2021
Buriganga Pollution

The once mighty Buriganga River, which flows by Dhaka, is now one of the most polluted rivers in Bangladesh because of rampant dumping of industrial and human waste Syed Zakir Hossain/Dhaka Tribune

High presence of antibiotic-resistant genes found in Bangladesh’s urban surface water, says study by icddr,b and University of Birmingham
Researchers have identified a high-level presence of antibiotic resistance genes in urban surface water samples in Bangladesh and made an urgent call for immediate measures to halt the spread of the "superbugs."
“The rivers and lakes of Dhaka are surrounded by highly-populated slums in which human waste is directly released into the water. The presence of human gut bacteria links to high levels of antibiotic resistance genes, suggesting that such contamination is driving the presence of these ‘superbugs’ in surface water,” a University of Birmingham statement issued on Friday quoted the research paper’s lead author Willem van Schaik as saying.
Superbugs are strains of bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi that are resistant to most of the antibiotics and other medications commonly used to treat the infections they cause.
Schaik, who teaches microbiology at the University of Birmingham in UK, is member of an eight-strong research team comprising four members each from the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (icddr,b) and the Institute of Microbiology and Infection of the University of Birmingham.
Their research findings from samples collected from 24 sites of Bangladesh’s three districts — Dhaka, Mymensingh and Shariatpur— was published in mSystems, a scientific journal of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) on July 13 under the title "Metagenome-wide analysis of rural and urban surface waters and sediments in Bangladesh identifies human waste as a driver of antibiotic resistance."
Researchers suspect that that the release of untreated sewage is a driver for the spread of environmental antibiotic resistance genes in Bangladesh, particularly in highly urbanized settings. They, however, called for further research to quantify the drivers of antibiotic resistance in surface waters in Bangladesh.
The University of Birmingham said in the statement that the researchers studied bodies of water in urban and rural sites in three areas of Bangladesh and found more antibiotic resistant faecal coliforms in urban surface water compared to rural settings.
“Antibiotic resistance genes were detected in all samples, but their abundance varied 1,525-fold between sites, with the highest levels of antibiotic resistance genes being present in urban surface water samples” it reads.
The abundance of antibiotic resistance genes was significantly correlated with the abundance of bacteria originating from the human gut, which suggests that the release of untreated sewage is a driver for the spread of environmental antibiotic resistance genes in Bangladesh, particularly in highly urbanized settings, added the statement.
In many cases, human waste is directly released into rivers
Researchers say that low and mid-income countries have higher burdens of multidrug-resistant infections than high-income nations, and there is thus an urgent need to elucidate the drivers of the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in LMICs.
“Here, we study the diversity and abundance of antibiotic resistance genes in surface water and sediments from rural and urban settings in Bangladesh. We found that urban surface waters are particularly rich in antibiotic resistance genes, with a higher number of them associated with plasmids, indicating that they are more likely to spread horizontally,” they wrote.
“The abundance of antibiotic resistance genes was strongly correlated with the abundance of bacteria that originate from the human gut, suggesting that uncontrolled release of human waste is a major driver for the spread of antibiotic resistance,” they state, suggesting that improvements in sanitation in may thus be a key intervention to reduce the dissemination of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
They further state, “Antibiotic resistance was the highest in urban areas, which suggests that human factors contribute to the accumulation of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the environment. This was further corroborated by the correlation between the abundance of bacteria originating from the human gut and antibiotic resistance gene abundance observed in our study.”
Rivers and lakes of Dhaka are surrounded by slums with high population densities in which 13.7% of households report that human waste is directly released into lakes, ponds, or rivers, according to the study.
“Our study thus extends on previous observations that link the introduction of human sewage into river and lake systems to high levels of antibiotic resistance genes,” it said.
The University of Birmingham press release says, the prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria causing infections is increasing globally, but the clinical issues, including significant morbidity and mortality, posed by these bacteria are particularly alarming in the low and mid-income countries.
Noting that the prevalence of multidrug-resistant E. coli among healthy humans is relatively high in Bangladesh, as it is in other low- and mid-income countries, the release says, “Dhaka, has a population of around 16 million people, with a population density that ranks among the highest of any megacity, but less than 20% of households are directly connected to sewerage infrastructure.”
Antibiotic-resistant bacteria that colonize the human gut can be passed into rivers, lakes and coastal areas through the release of untreated wastewater, the overflow of pit latrines during monsoon season or by practices such as open defecation, it adds.
“These contaminated environments are often used for bathing, for the washing of clothes and food preparation equipment, thus increasing the risk of human gut colonization by antibiotic-resistant bacteria,” reads the University of Birmingham release.
Willem van Schaik apart, the other members of the research team are: Ross Stuart McInnes, Siu Fung Stanley Ho, and Robert A Moran from the Institute of Microbiology and Infection at the University of Birmingham; and Md Hassan uz-Zaman, Imam Taskin Alam, Md Sirajul Islam, and John D Clemens from the Laboratory of Food Safety and One Health, Laboratory Sciences and Services Division, icddr,b.
The University of Birmingham is ranked amongst the world’s top 100 institutions. Its work brings people from across the world to Birmingham, including researchers and teachers and more than 6,500 international students from over 150 countries.
Headquartered in Dhaka, icddr,b is one of the world’s leading global health research institutes, with a track record of carrying out high-quality research and promoting the uptake of evidence-based interventions for over 50 years. Its initial focus was on diarrhoeal disease, but icddr,b now studies multiple infectious diseases, other threats to public health, and methods of healthcare delivery.

Hanging toilets and toilets without septic tanks are counted in their ODF surveys.

This is how they achieve their so called higher living standards- by redefining the standards itself!!!

yup that is it. they simply built an enclosure where they used to do it. i don`t think any one in kangladesh even understand significance of ODF. let them boast as much as they want. it will take few more years and when the new stats will be released they will stop on their own. it will take them decades even to achieve our current level of cleanliness or perhaps never.

Well, it's a "democracy'' where the ruling party wins 95% of seats in national elections. That's the kind of ''credibility" they have...

Only Kim Jong-un could do better than that- it's ''Democratic People's Republic of Korea'' after all... :rofl:
