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.

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.

A 17 year old teenager died after jumping in front of a running Metro train at M G Road station around 8.30 pm on Monday.

According to eyewitnesses, the deceased, Vishnu Sharan had clearly intended to commit suicide.

Police and fire service personnel are trying to extricate the body.

This is the first tragedy to hit Bangalore's metro service which started last October.

New line to boost Metro connectivity


Quote:
It will have integration points with Metro lines, BMTC bus station, railway station. The proposed North-South line of Namma Metro between Gottigere and Nagavara under phase II will ensure greater connectivity between different parts of the City. The new line is expected to have two integration points with Metro lines and one each with a city bus station and a railway station. Sources in the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) said the integration with BMTC bus station and the railway station would be at Shivajinagar and Cantonment, respectively.

The two metro integration points, sources said, are proposed near Jayadeva Hospital and Mahatma Gandhi Road. The line originates on an elevated platform at Gottigere, passing through Hulimavu Station and Bannerghatta Road in front of the Indian Institute of Management - Bangalore. From here, the line will pass through JP Nagar IV Phase, BTM Layout and cross the flyover at Marenahalli near Jayadeva Hospital. The alignment will also cross another proposed line between RV Road Terminal and Bommasandra, with both the stations on these lines interconnected. The alignment will cross Swagath Cross Road Metro Station and will go underground just before Dairy Circle. The alignment continues underground till Nagavara. The underground alignment, sources said, will pass along Mico (Bosch), crossing the big drain from where it will take a left and then a right turn, going under the graveyard and beneath Hosur Road. The line will then pass through Richmond Road (Vellara Junction), go under Brigade Road and cross the MG Road Station. Sources said the underground station here will be close to the existing station, connected through escalators and stairs. From here, the alignment will reach Shivajinagar through Cubbon Road (below the military area) and Infantry Road. The Shivajinagar station will have connectivity with the BMTC terminal and from here, the line moves below Queen’s Road to reach Cantonment Railway Station, where the metro and railway stations will be integrated. Moving beneath the railway line, the alignment will cross Millers Road, Nandidurga Road and reach Pottery Town before moving below Tannery Road, Salem Railway line and then the Outer Ring Road to reach Nagavara.

No Metro service till 2 pm on Holi
New Delhi, March 5, 2012, DHNS:

Quote:
Metro trains will not run till 2 pm on Holi. Normally, the services begin at 6 am. “Metro train services will start only at 2 pm on Thursday and will continue normally thereafter,” Delhi Metro spokesperson Anuj Dayal said.

The services will not be available in the first half on all six lines: Dilshad Garden to Rithala (Line-1), Jahangirpuri to HUDA City Centre (Line-2), Noida City Centre to Dwarka Sec-21 (Line-3), Vaishali to Yamuna Bank (Line-4), Inderlok to Mundka (Line-5) and Central Secretariat to Badarpur (Line-6).

While Metro services would begin in the afternoon, Metro feeder bus services would not be available for the entire day on Thursday.
any such arrangements in namma metro?

In India the problem is we take a lot for granted - wherever safety is necessary, let's not make it optional. It's not some psycho jumping on the rails, but there are kids, old and disabled people, so in the interest of their safety it is necessary. Yes, platform doors are needed in railway stations too more so if high-speed rail commences. And you can't climb the door, the new ones are attached to the wall like a big door way.

I support the usage of platform screen doors and automatic platform gates fully. Full size PSDs help to cut air conditioning costs, they also prevent suicides. APGs prevent suicide and stop people from falling on to the platforms. Railway stations will have a hard time implementing this because there isn't the appropriate stock to be able to install such a thing there. One would have to be pretty damn stupid to try to cross tracks when there are high-speed rail trains plying it. I therefore think that the necessary action must be taken to promote the safety interests of the public as well as prevent deaths because of negligence and suicide.

elevated stations have gates not doors if you have read my previous comment. no big deal for a psycho to jump a gate that is 4 feet high.

we cant help suicide people, but due to passenger rush if somebody falls to tracks then paltform doors/gates required. Or even the case of malicious pushing by people it is required. So other than mg road and majestic (where passenger rush will be there) we wont need platform doors/gates in any other small stations. see railway track suicide:
