    Ludhiana Metro project to have two corridors
    BS Reporter / New Delhi/ Chandigarh November 18, 2010, 0:30 IST



    A high level team of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd yesterday had a meeting with the Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab Sukhbir Singh Badal regarding the proposed metro rail project for Ludhiana.

    The detailed project report conducted by Delhi Metro has estimated Ludhiana Metro project cost at Rs 6,600 crore. According to the report, the first corridor of Ludhiana Metro will be 15.798 km long having 14 stations. The second corridor will be 13.035 km long with 13 stations.

    The team of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd yesterday gave a detailed presentation to Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal and discussed various financial models for the scheme. They also discussed the financial model of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd.

    Punjab Deputy Chief Minster Sukhbir Singh Badal immediately after assuming charge of the post in January 2009, had promised Mass Rapid Transport System (MRTS) including metro rail for the city, keeping in view its rapid expansion besides daily commuting of thousands of labourers from adjoining towns of Mandi Gobindgarh and Khanna. He had at that time, requested Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd to conduct a feasibility study and deposited over Rs 1 crore for conducting the study.

    He said that Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd took one and half year to conduct a detailed feasibility study.

    The Deputy Chief Minister added that the Punjab government has already asked the Centre for viability gap funding for Ludhiana metro rail project. The Chief Minister of Punjab has already taken up this issue with the Union Finance Minister. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Managing Director E Sreedharan who visited Ludhiana had a detailed meeting with the Deputy Chief Minister to find ways for expeditious completion of the project.

    Centre to build expressways to link Delhi to Jaipur, Chandigarh

    The government on Tuesday said it plans to build two new expressways linking neighbouring pink city Jaipur and Chandigarh to the national capital -- ventures that are likely to cost up to nearly $3 billion (Rs 12,750 crore).

    "The Centre has decided to build Delhi Jaipur and Delhi-Chandigarh expressways. Ministry officials will take up the issue with states of Delhi, Rajasthan and Haryana. Once they come on board, we will get the detailed project report," Road Transport and Highways Minister CP Joshi told PTI.

    The move comes at a time when the Government is re-examining a proposal to set up Expressway Authority of India (EAI) on the pattern of National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to facilitate building over 18,000 km of roads for high speed traffic entailing Rs 4,50,000 crore investment.

    Asked about proposed cost for both the expressways, Joshi said that these are yet to be assessed.

    However, going by estimates of Rs 18 crore (rpt) Rs 18 crore per km for a four-lane expressway and Rs 25.5 crore (rpt) Rs 25.5 crore per km for a six-way project, the total cost of both the schemes comes in the range of Rs 9,000-Rs 12,750 crore. Sources said both the expressways would comprise 250 km stretches each.

    Joshi said the need for the expressways to both the state capitals was felt in view of increasing traffic. Present highways - Delhi-Jaipur stretch on NH-8 and Delhi-Chandigarh stretch on NH-1-- witness heavy traffic.

    Both the projects would be on new alignments. Asked about existing norms that restricts Centre from building competing roads to present tolled highways, the Minister said the proposed expressways would start from new points to avoid contractual issues.

    Expressways provide unhindered, high-speed, and safe movement of traffic and the government last year had announced setting up an EAI, a nodal body to build 18,637 km of expressways in three phases by 2022.

    The Transport Ministry in December, 2008, had hired a consultant for formulating the master plan for the national expressway network in a phased manner, which was accepted by the government.

    However, the plan was later shelved with the government saying it was facing problems in land acquisition and the issue was being re-examined.

    Meanwhile the government plans to build 10,000 kms of expressways under phase VI under the National Highways Development Project (NHDP).

    The project is India's largest highways programme to build and upgrade 54,000 km of roads at an estimated expenditure of Rs 3 lakh crore.

    NHDP is being executed in seven phases.

    GE brings new turbines to India

    American multinational General Electric has announced plans to introduce 660 and 800 MW supercritical steam turbines in India this year.

    With India targeting a capacity addition of at least 100,000 MW to meet its growth requirements, the demand for power equipment such as high-efficiency turbines is set to increase.

    GE hopes to strengthen its footprint in the region with a flexible steam turbine technology that can be customised with a variety of boiler conditions.

    It has been supplying turbines to the country as part of a joint venture with Triveni steam turbines in the 30 to 100 MW range for power generation applications.

    The steam turbine generator market in India is expected to grow to around 10-12 GW per annum over the next 10 years.

    ^^^^

    Unfortunately, I don't see any infrastructure development projects for the north-eastern and eastern region apart from the oldest metro in Kolkata.

    The north-east regions have been neglected for good part of the last 60 years. By not announcing any future infrastructure projects for these regions, a negative message is being given.

    As far as India's general infrustructure development goes, we have miles to go. Check this thread: The Paths of Two Giants: India and China

    This is because in this part of India,there is no big or metro city exists.
    The major cities in central India are Bhopal,Indore,Raipur,Ranchi etc. and the public transport like BUS owned by municipal corporations are enough to transport people within these cities.Investing in Metros will be a big loss of money for these cities as India is a developing country.
