Efforts on to put MMTS phase-II on track

Senior officials of State government and South Central Railway exchanging notes


Updated revised estimate for the MMTS phase-II put at Rs. 1,810 crore

SCR proposes to take up works where cash outgo will be Rs. 919 crore


HYDERABAD: Serious efforts are now on to pep up the popular suburban train service of Multi-Modal Transport System (MMTS).

Senior officials of the government and the South Central Railway (SCR) are exchanging notes on measures to develop rail infrastructure to take up phase two.

In view of the government’s not so rosy financial position, officials seem to have come to a conclusion that the updated revised estimate of Rs. 1,810 crore for the next phase of the project would be a big burden as the former had committed to picking up two-thirds the cost.

Senior railway officials here have instead proposed to take up works where the cash outgo will be Rs. 919 crore only based on operational feasibility and commuter density.

Communication sent

A communication to this effect has been sent to the Chief Secretary’s office couple of months ago listing details of the sections which can be taken up as stage one.

Sanathnagar-Moula Ali chord line (21km – Rs.239 crore), Moula Ali-Malkajgiri-Sitaphalmandi chord line (10 km – Rs. 107.1 crore), Secunderabad-Medchal (28 km-Rs. 171.6 crore), Falaknuma-Umdanagar-International airport (20 km-Rs.233.1 crore) and Moula Ali ‘C’ Cabin-Cherlapalli (5 km-Rs. 50 crore) are among the works proposed under the plan.

Besides, another Rs.66 crore cost has been estimated for rolling stock like six rakes or trains and Rs. 52 crore as general charges. SCR has explained that these works will provide an uninterrupted flow of MMTS commuter traffic and will also help in decongesting the main line corridors around the twin cities.

Survey

Senior railway officials, who are surveying each and every inch of the railway lines proposed to be developed to consider whether costs could be cut down further, have sought the government’s consent to start works at the earliest. In the meantime, the government was sounded about releasing the Rs. 15 crore due to the Integral Coach Factory (ICF), Chennai.

The money is for procuring six pending trains of nine coaches each to augment phase one services so that the daily trips can be increased to 100 or more from the present 92 services.

However, even if the money is released immediately, rakes manufacture will take nearly a year since the factory is busy with making coaches for the Kolkata metro, senior officials indicated.

Hi,
To improve public transport in Hyderabad, we need smaller buses, which would run in the interior roads of the residential colonies like Vivekananda nagar, Chanda Nagar,Nizampet road etc.
If APSRTC invests in mini buses i.e. 20-25 seaters as against the normal 60-70 seaters, and runs these buses (to be maintained in good condition) from areas like Bachupally, Gajularamam, Pathancheruvu etc to Vanenburg (via Mind space), with a frequency of 15 mins and follows the timings, then the patronage would be there. These buses should also touch the MMTS stations.
This would induce the people living in apartments away from the main roads to use these buses.
The MMTS services have to be more frequent and the Sanath nagar to Medak route has to be used for public transportation by plying MMTS services.
Likewise MMTS should be extended i.e. the terminals should be Alwal, Bhuvanagiri, Faluknama, Nampally, Shankarpally instead of Limgampally, Nampally and Faluknama at present.

Regards,
Jagadish

Bus fares reduced in city

Staff Reporter

Hyderabad: The APSRTC has revised fares for ordinary, metro deluxe and metro express buses in Hyderabad, Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam and the new fares would come into effect from Wednesday. However, there is no change in the air-condition bus fares.

While, the minimum fare of ordinary buses remains the same, the fare for first three stages is reduced to Rs. 5 from the existing Rs. 7. Similarly, fares for every stage thereafter are reduced by Re. 1.

Fares of metro deluxe and metro express buses are reduced by Rs. 1, irrespective of stages, said an APSRTC officer.

Meanwhile, APSRTC Vice-chairman and Managing Director B. Prasada Rao flagged off a Garuda bus from Rajiv Gandhi International Airport to Vijayawada on Tuesday for the convenience of passengers, said a press release issued here.

Volvo - Air Buses should be available from Airport to Shamshabad station and regular MMTS services from there to Sec-bad station (via Kachiguda).
Hyd has a lot of rail lines whcih are lying idle - used only for freight...they should be used for public transport as well.

State clears pending MMTS phase I payment

Source :http://www.hindu.com/2010/07/01/stor...0162350500.htm

Commuters can expect full-fledged services of phase one of the Multi Modal Transit Service (MMTS) in the twin cities in a year's time with the government finally clearing the Rs.22 crore payment for procuring the pending six rakes or trains.

The trains, each consisting of nine coaches, will be manufactured at the Railways' Integral Coach Factory (ICF), Chennai. The payment was pending with the Finance Department for quite sometime now. Official sources said the department had cleared the proposal few days ago and it also got approved by the Chief Secretary and Chief Minister's Office.

An official order is to be issued pretty soon for the amount to be released. The ICF had earlier put the amount at Rs. 14.64 crore as there was already a sum of Rs. 13.80 crore available with it. Total cost for the six trains was estimated to be Rs. 56.88 crore with the Railways and government sharing the cost equally.

The amount escalated to Rs. 18 crore and to Rs. 22 crore due to the delay. Initially, the Government wanted GHMC to take a loan to pay ICF but the latter expressed its inability due to its own bad financial condition.

Senior Railway officials said that it will take at least a year for ICF to supply the new trains once the funds are disbursed as it was already busy in the manufacture of coaches for the Kolkata Metro.

After the new coaches arrive, the number of daily services can be increased from the current 104 and more commuters can travel as some of the six coach trains will be augmented with nine coaches, officials explained.

Phase one project was taken up on 50:50 cost sharing venture of Indian Railways and State Government by strengthening the existing rail infrastructure at a total cost of Rs. 178 crore in 2003. Only 10 trains of the proposed 16 trains were delivered when the services were launched.

Despite issues of frequency, truncated trains and lack of feeder services, more than 1.3 lakh commuters travel by MMTS on the Secunderabad-Hyderabad-Lingampalli (28 km) and Secunderabad-Falaknuma (15 km) routes.
