Going by newsletter the base slab of stn isn't completely done. So they might not be in position to move TBM from one end to another as a single piece.

Dismantling and re-assembling takes 2 months?? (on paper) reality will be 3 to 4 months!

Looking at the distance between the 2 tunnels in the pic, can we confirm now that the Central College station would have an Island platform?

  • Cost of one TBM is 90-95 crores
  • Each underground station will be 250 mts long
  • Stations are built by cut and cover method
The government of India needs to establish a SPV or any other public sector company which buys a lot of TBM's..It will be required all over india for the next decade..Wonder why atleast 5 TBM's are not already operational in Bengaluru? :-)

A company that owns the TBMs and rents/leases it out to the company.
It can also be a private company. They'll have funds.

Nice video
But disagree with respect to the mayor's point . we dont need more space for parking on MG road . This only encourages more people to use their personal transport
Find parking space elsewhere or use public transport. Its time more green spaces start coming up in the city.We have lost so much recently

UG stations have lateral platforms also (like elevated stations).

5) IN front of TAJ VIVANTA, station looks in better shape than CMTI one :









6) Yeshwantpur station and connection with the Railway station : Looks dirty as of now, lets see how they finish it..













7) Soap factory station : (Land acquisition problem!)





And then i turned into Rajkumar road :-) ..anyways the mahalakshmi station to Malleshwaram are in much better shape than the one i have posted..I cant seem to believe they have any chance to open this stretch by Dec 2012 :-(

Exactly. You park at other stations, and chug up to MG Road by train.

translation: controlled blasting using sand bag, steel mesh and rubber mats on top of blasting hole.

station, estimate, work done:
central college, 60k, 50k
vidhana soudha, 55k, 28k (slowed down due to ambedkar stature)
minsk square 20k, 3k (recently started)

when has public transport bug bitten u private transport is better than public transport and we need parking lot in mg road. metro will reduce pollution in the city more than it cuts the trees, as it uses only electricity

Seems already a water cascade is working:

Machine bores 925 metres of Metro tunnel

The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) on Saturday said that its tunnel boring machine (TBM) Helen reached the end of Central College at the Sir M Visveswaraya underground station after having bored 925 metre since June 2011, when it was commissioned.

Margarita, another TBM, has already bored 915 metre underground and is expected to reach the college soon.

Helen’s breakthrough at Central College, at about 11 am on Saturday, the BMRCL claimed, has boosted the spirits of the workers.

BMRCL operationalised Reach-1 of Namma Metro, a teaser of the service, last year. But only the completion of the underground section will determine the overall success of the project.
The underground section is important as it connects different reaches of Namma Metro.

Care to explain how?
You put a parking lot on MG Road, noone will take a metro. they'll drive to MG Road.

Below Bangalore Metro tracks, motorists are an 'undivided' menace

http://www.dnaindia.com/bangalore/re...menace_1658559

Quote:
Four months after the Metro rail from Baiyappanahalli to MG Road became operational, the lack of attention towards what happens below the railway line is soon turning the area, especially the pillars, into a dump yard.

The 7-km Metro rail from Baiyappanahalli to MG Road may have driven the hopes of people living along the stretch — better and cleaner roads, footpaths and increased value for their property. The six stations built by the BMRCL may be swanky, air-conditioned and well-maintained. But one look at the area below the tracks can put you off.

One of the complaints of residents in these areas is that there are no permanent road dividers. “Temporary dividers have been placed on the road. Motorists remove them and turn, coming into the path of vehicles coming from the opposite direction,” said Waqar Ahmed, a shopkeeper. “What’s worse is more often than not, motorists remove the barricades near the pillars. When they take turns, vehicles coming from the opposite direction cannot see them because of the pillar. This results in an accident,” he added.

Additional commissioner of police (traffic) MA Saleem said the traffic police have received various complaints in this regard. “I have written letters to the BBMP and BMRCL, asking them to erect permanent dividers along this stretch. But nothing has happened till now.”

Civil works under the area will have to wait till the ‘white-topping’ of the roads under the Metro rail is completed, he added. Meanwhile, the lack of attention to roads under the Metro line is resulting in the Metro losing its sheen. At Ulsoor, the space where BMRCL officials plan to begin ‘ornamentation’ work has already turned into a dump for construction debris. The Metro pillars, especially near Adarsha theatre, have piles of garbage, which is dumped here at night.

While BMRCL officials went into a tizzy when a packet of leftover food was thrown on the track, acts of vandalism such as posters being stuck on the pillars have not got attracted similar outrage.

“Right now, there are a few posters of political events, coaching centres, etc stuck on pillars. Soon, all pillars will be covered with posters. What is the BMRCL going to do to stop them?” said Ramakrishna Holla, a city-based advocate.

BMRCL spokesperson BLY Chavan said BMRCL cannot force people to follow the rules.

“The people know that there are rules with regard to defacing public property. Why don’t they follow rules? We are not an enforcing agency,” he said. Nevertheless, the BMRCL intends to take up beautification works, he added.
