Readiness of Majestic Station

The public statement by BMRCL about readiness of Majestic station is very unrealistic. The tender itself talks about 135 weeks of work which pushes it to August 2014. Considering other hurdles it will go to end 2014.

Running trains through the station when work is still in progress, though technically feasible is always a safety hazard.

Further, some of the stations like KR market and Chickpet are yet to take of in real sense. We have seen that stations progress at the rate of 2 or maximum 3 percent per month. Inintial 20 percent coming up in about 4 months. All in all we will have Reach 3 operational in 2013. If track change facility is possible at Visweswariah then extension of Reach 1 till that could be reality in 2013.

Has anybody any idea of shape of Majestic station? Is it a plus type or T type? If it is plus type then till it gets totally complete we have no hopes on Reach 2 and 4. But if it is T shaped (with platforms for green and purple lines connected through UG walk/escalator routes) then Reach 2 could get connected earlier and Reach 4 will get connected earliest by early 2015.

Barricades in Jayanagar 5th blk

Saw a small barricaded area yesterday in the footpath near Jayanagar 5th blk. This was in the stretch between the new Jnr 9th blk bus stand and Raghavendra temple signal. The board read Namma metro for sure but could not make out if phase 2 was also there... But I presume it should be for that..
Btw, is this a part of the Geotechnical survey for which BMRC had called for tenders 2-3 months back ? No info on who got that contract..

May be BMRCL apart from Majestic Station is speaking of UG station readiness too esp on UG1 N-S sector. If tunneling is complete and UG station's base floor is complete, they might be able to run trains.

I agree with Anil29, unless some miracle happens(which wont), we wont see phase 1 finish until 2015 March i feel..

If BMRCL has some brains, then it should go full steam on the ITPL extension of phase 2(once approved by Central govt)..its has no under ground, depot is already present and not much land acquisition also...It can be built in 2 years flat and can be opened with Phase 1 completion...

If ITPL is connected by 2015, then ppl will forget that it took more time to finish the metro :-) Hordes will jump onto it!!

Yes 2015 or even later than that will be the completion time..phase 2 will definitely take another 10-15 years...but hopefully by 2020 we will hwve phase 1 complete..

Ok I have a doubt... BWSSB just laid underground pipelines along the K R Puram bridge (near Tin factory).. Assuming the phase2 line comes there, what about these pipes??

Reach 4A

Around 20th of April there was a news item where Court had banned the activities of Ready mix concrete plant on Kanakapura road under pollusiion control reason.

I have observed a drastic reduction of activities on Reach 4A may be due to the above reason. No new piers, or beams being cast in JP Nagar or Puttenhalli station.

Metro contractor seems to be having a work around plan and going ahead with all the viaduct launching, parapet segments and even the steal grill barricade above the parapet. But all this he can complete in next two months or so and if the issue of concrete supply is not resolved, progress could suffer significantly.

Working hard to keep the metro rolling

Quote:

Did you know that each Namma Metro train needs to be certified “fit for operation” before it commences the day's routine early every morning.

Or are you aware that each train undergoes thorough inspection at regular intervals.

Completing their routine run, the trains enter the Byappanahalli Depot after 10 p.m.

They will be first washed from outside and cleaned from inside. At present, the external washing is done manually even as the automatic train washing plant is in the final stages of commissioning. Cleaning of trains has been outsourced.

By 11 p.m., about 12 personnel, including three technicians, inspect the train, including the electrical and electronic parts, said Sudhir Chiplunkar, General Manager (Rolling Stock and Traction), Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd.

Mr. Chiplunkar told The Hindu that after being satisfied, the engineer concerned will issue a fitness certificate to each train by 4 a.m.

Battery-operated bogie tractors are used to haul the trains within the depot since the third rail (power supply) is not used within the premises to avoid electrical mishaps. The Byappanahalli depot is self-sufficient with regard to maintenance solutions for metro trains, Mr. Chiplunkar said.

Presently, six train sets are deployed for operation on Reach 1. Of them,four will be on the tracks, one will be on standby at Byapanahalli Metro Station and one will be undergoing regular maintenance. In all, the depot got has 21 train sets required for commercial services on the East-West Corridor between Byappanahalli and Mysore Road Terminal.
