    Chennai Metro

    Chennai to have Metrorail from mid-2014

    Chennai to have Metrorail from mid-2014:tup::yahoo:

    CHENNAI: The burgeoning traffic on city roads may soon be thing of the past. Chennai Metro Rail project is likely to be commissioned in three stages from mid 2014 and will be completed by 2015-end, finance minister O Panneerselvam said.

    With the rapid growth of Chennai city taking a toll on road infrastructure, the state government decided to introduce metrorail as a new rail-based rapid transport system. It is aimed at providing the city, a fast, reliable, convenient and economical mode of public transport, which is strategically integrated with other forms of public and private transport in the city, including buses, suburban trains, and the Mass Rapid Transport System (MRTS), as well as with future additional rail systems, including monorail transport.

    Major construction and system-related contracts have already been awarded and the works are progressing well, said a policy note tabled by Panneerselvam in the legislative assembly on Wednesday. "About 75% of construction relating to elevated viaducts and stations, 55% of the construction of depot at Koyambedu and 35% of construction of underground stations and associated tunnels has been completed up to March last," he said. CMRL is taking action to ensure multimodal integration of the metro with bus, suburban railways, MRTS and monorail to enable seamless movement of passengers from one mode to another.

    Under the CMRL, two corridors have been taken up for implementation, based on the detailed project report prepared by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Limited. The rail corridors from Washermenpet to Chennai Airport and Chennai Central to St Thomas Mount will cover 23.1km and 22km respectively.

    Bangalore Metro

    Metro trials on Peenya corridor may begin on June 10

    Metro trials on Peenya corridor may begin on June 10

    BANGALORE: Full-speed trials on the Peenya-Sriramapuram stretch of Namma Metro's northern line are set to begin from June 10. They will be extended up to Sampige Road Metro Station by July 8.

    These trials allow the rakes to run up to their full speed of 80kmph, thereby testing track strength and distance brake systems of the rakes. Oscillation trials, as these trials are also called, will require each train to travel 750km each from one end to the other and clear all braking and speed tests.

    The Peenya-Sampige Road line was slated to begin operations in mid-2013, but a host of issues delayed the work. This was supposed to be the second stretch of Namma Metro to become functional. However, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRC) officials are non-committal on when the operations will begin.

    The 9.9km Peenya-Sampige Road stretch consists of Reach 3 (Yeshwantpur-Sampige Road) and Reach 3A (Peenya-Yeshwantpur). There will be 10 stations on the stretch. Work is afoot on further extension on this corridor - Reach 3B - between Peenya and Hesaraghatta.

    Nods awaited

    Namma Metro is still waiting for two more technical clearances at the Peenya depot, including one on exemption from provision of check rails, which are used in curves. The irony is that until the check rail clearance is received, BMRC can't begin oscillation trials between Peenya depot and Sampige Road stations. The approvals are expected to come from Railway Design and Standards organization (RDSO), headquartered in Lucknow. BMRC has sent proposals to the Railway Board through the commissioner of railway safety.

    Civil work, however, continues to meander on the northern corridor. According to BMRC, 78% of civil work is over in Yeshwantpur, Soap Factory and Mahalakshmi Layout stations, while 74% of work has been completed in Rajajinagar, Kuvempu Road and Srirampuram stations. Granite flooring, and electrical and mechanical fittings are under way. Spans totaling up to a length of 66 metre have been laid over railway lines at Srirampuram. However, three spans between six piers are yet to be laid between Yeshwantpur and Peenya.

    Kochi Metro

    With the construction work of the Kochi Metro Rail beginning on June 7, the need for implementing some major infrastructure projects has gained momentum.

    When the Metro Rail work begins, the traffic will have to be diverted and the stakeholders of city’s development believe that this is the right time to implement the key infrastructure projects by including it in the list of Metro Rail-related works.

    Initially, five major works were entrusted with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) as preparatory works for the Kochi Metro Rail at an estimated cost of Rs 158 crore. This include the reconstruction of Ernakulam North RoB, the construction of a new flyover connecting Salim Rajan Road and Rajaji Road and the widening of MG Road, South Railway Station Road and Banerjee Road.

    Among the works, DMRC had already completed the construction of the new RoB, which was christened as A L Jacob RoB, and it was commissioned the other day. Though actually scheduled to be completed in 18 months, the bridge was completed in 16 months.

    The State Government had already entrusted DMRC with the construction of a new flyover at Edappally too.

    “But we need to implement other projects too. Edappally Flyover, which is expected to be completed in 18 months will help in easing the congestion at Edappally. Once the construction of Metro begins, we will have to divert the traffic through other roads. We have already requested the Chief Minister to release the funds for acquiring land for the widening of Thammanam-Pulleppady Road, which will play a crucial role on traffic diversion,” said Mayor Tony Chammany.

    As per the Plan, the Thammanam-Pulleppady Road will be developed into 22 metre from the existing 18 metre.

    Along with Thammanam-Pulleppady Road widening, other projects that need to be completed before the commissioning of Kochi Metro Rail are the new RoB at Pachalam and Atlantis. “The Pachalam Railway is still a major reason for the traffic bottleneck in that area. We have already requested the state government to take steps for carrying the project forward,” said Hibi Eden MLA.

    Along with that, experts say that the reconstruction of South RoB should be included in the list of Kochi Metro Rail related projects. Since its will be difficult to carry out any major construction work like widening of South RoB after the commissioning of Metro Rail project, the State should seek the assistance of Kochi Metro Rail Limited to chalk out a plan for the South RoB revamping.

    “Once these projects are included among the preparatory works of Kochi Metro rail, the work should be entrusted with DMRC which can ensure the completion of the projects within the scheduled time,” experts added.

    Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation seeks ADB loan to fund underground Metro

    Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation seeks ADB loan to fund underground Metro

    JAIPUR: To seek funds for construction of underground Metro from Chandpole to BadiChaupar, Phase- I (B), senior officials of Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation (JMRC) on Wednesday met representatives of Asian Development Bank (ADB) in New Delhi.

    The Planning Commission had forwarded the proposal to the ADB after the JMRC sought the requirement of loan for the project for Phase I (B).

    "The meeting was held with bank representatives and a decision will be taken with in two to three days," JMRC chief managing director N C Goel said. Sources in the department claimed that ADB has given in principle approval to provide a loan of Rs 969 crore.

    A day earlier, a consultant from the ADB bank conducted a survey for the route and met senior JMRC officials and residents of the city. "It was learnt that the highest number commuters coming to Walled City ply through this route," an official said.

    As the state government plans to lay foundation before next state elections, the JMRC is gearing up to initiate the tender process in July for construction of Metro project phase I (B), based on an engineering-procurement-construction (EPC) model.

    Sources in the department claimed that if the ADB bank rejects the proposal, the tender process is likely to be delayed due to financial glitches.

    "There is sufficient arrangement of funds to construct the project from Mansarovar to Chandpole. However, the state government is not in a position to fund the entire project till Badi Chaupar," a source said. The estimated cost to construct the line from Mansarovar to Chandpole is Rs 2,000 crore. If it is extended to Badi Chaupar, the cost will go up to around Rs 3,149 crore.

    Officials said the 2. 4 km corridor from Badi Chaupar to Chandpole will be constructed underground in the Walled City area. Under Phase-I (B) of the project, an underground tunnel would be dug from Chandpole to Badi Chaupar through the congested areas of the old city.

    An official said JMRC is looking at getting financial assistance from the Central government in the form of equity for the Metro phase I (B). As part of a joint venture, the Centre is expected to fund 20% of the project in the form of equity.

    "On JMRC's request, the Union ministry of urban development recently forwarded the proposal to the Planning Commission for its comments. The Central government will provide Rs 627 crore in the form of equity. As per the norms, the Centre will have a 20% stake in the project," a senior JMRC official said.
