Kochi Metro land acquisition to be completed by March

The land required for Kochi metro’s preliminary works and a major share of land needed for constructing the system of mass rapid transport will be acquired by January 31. The rest of the land will be acquired by March. The project requires 40.40 hectares of land.

Approximately 1.70 hectares is required for widening narrow portions in the Aluva-Edapally stretch of NH 47 and 114 hectares for constructing metro villages in Muttom near Aluva and in Kakkanad. The five preparatory works entrusted with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) – constructing two overbridges and widening three arterial roads, requires a total of 102.50 cents of land.

Apart from the land required for the preliminary works, the Revenue Department plans to hand over 40 hectares of land for constructing a coach-maintenance yard at Muttom and plots for which Section 4 (1) notification will be issued before January end. The DMRC has already awarded the work on levelling the yard, foreseeing the handing over of the land. A few NGOs have opposed the acquisition of land for setting up a metro village at Muttom.

i think starting up a new thread is a good idea. the other one for kochi metro seems crowded and it started way back in 2008. it has more than 100 pages. so a new thread is better as the Kochi Metro project is in better action now. Cheers Tharam..!

Metro design to prevent suicides


A Metro station in Dubai having PSD facility.

The proposed Kochi metro stations will have Platform Screen Doors (PSD), aimed at preventing mishaps and suicide attempts.

“The doors would restrict the public’s access to the rails by enclosing the stations in a glass cage and both the station’s door and that of the metro trains would open simultaneously when the trains stop. This way, mishaps due to overcrowding could be prevented. The only thing is that the system is a bit costly, but we’ve decided to include it for safety reasons”, said metro sources.

The provision for PSD had already been included in the tenders floated and would be modelled after the Dubai metro, they said. Being an elevated corridor, the public won’t have access to the rails, except at the stations.

Additional railings would also be installed at main metro stations on a priority basis to facilitate crowd control. Besides, sufficient front line staff and security guards would be posted to ensure that no untoward incidents happened.

The Delhi Metro is an effective mass rapid system, but the suicide bids have increased alarmingly in the last two years.

Last year, at least 25 people ended their lives on the metro rails of the national capital. It even forced the DMRC to roll out an appeal.

The latest National Crime Records Bureau figures show that 8,490 people took their lives in Kerala during 2012, behind only Sikkim and Tamil Nadu.

Work on metro’s first station to begin at Kaloor from Monday

Barricades will be erected on the eastern side of the piling site at the junction, following which Soma Constructions will begin piling. Kaloor is expected to be among the busiest metro stations, because of its proximity to the private bus stand and a host of institutions. Crucial corridors like Kaloor-Kadavanthra Road and Pottakuzhi Road take off from the junction.

Design

The structural design for stations is being readied by Egis India as instructed by DMRC, while Kochi Chapter of Indian Institute of Architects (IIA) will fine tune aspects like introducing elements of regional culture into the design.

The structural design will be in tune with the specifications for platforms and other facilities envisaged for stations, all of which will specially cater to the needs of disabled and elderly. Kiosks, coffee shops etc., have been planned within stations, to generate additional revenue for operation and maintenance of the metro.

Though it might take a couple of weeks more for handing over land for all the 22 stations proposed in the Aluva-Pettah route, civil works are expected to begin in a few of them in the coming days.

Aluva terminal

After Kaloor, next in line would most likely be the terminal station proposed near the municipal bus stand at Aluva, sources said. A huge pay and park lot has been envisaged near this station.

100 Piles over

Piling to construct pillars for the metro’s viaduct is underway at three places – Aluva (40 piles over and third rig is ready to take position), Changampuzha Park (50 over and third rig getting ready) and Kaloor (10 over), while it will commence at M G Road this week. L and T is engaged in piling at the first two locales, while Soma Constructions is doing piling at M G Road.

M G Road

In M G Road, work is set to begin to relocate electric posts, underground cables, demolish road median, install lights and fix LEDs atop barricades, prior to beginning piling.

Era Constructions, which was awarded civil works for metro’s Ernakulam South-Pettah reach, is expected to begin piling near Kunnara Park in the Vytilla-Pettah stretch. A plethora of problems await the firm since piling can be done only in the 700-metre-long Vytilla Mobility Hub-Kunnara Park stretch.

“By not laying pipelines along SA Road, Kerala Water Authority is delaying commencement of metro’s civil works on the road. The PWD has so fare been unable to begin widening of Vytilla-Pettah road into four-lane,” said sources associated with the metro.
