London Street Project takes off

Eight long years later, Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has finalized the ambitious the London Street plan, also known as Orange City Street Project. The estimated cost of the project has worked out to a whopping 5,700 crore, making it the biggest ever project in the civic body's history.
The civic body has started tendering process for the project spread over 31.15 hectare in a prime location. The tendering process is likely to continue up to November 27.
Executive engineer (projects) Mahesh Gupta told TOI the project will be executed once the tendering process is completed. "The project land is situated in 5.50km long area on both sides of the well developed stretch from Wardha Road-Somalwada-Khamla-Bhamti-Parsodi-Takli-Jaitala T-point. The whole site is strategically divided into ten sectors. Project will be developed in three phases over a span of 7.5-8 years on PPP model. It is the first of its kind project and will be a major landmark. Citizens will get residential, commercial, hospitality, retail and cultural facilities from the project," he said.
NMC's detailed project report says the PPP operator will have to invest 3,654 crore and can generate revenue of around 5,700 crore from the project. NMC is likely to get revenue of 900 crore in the form of premium and also land.
The project area ranges in width from 36 to 110 meters and falls in five mouzas, including Somalwada, Khamla, Bhamti, Takli and Jaitala. The land was meant for a railway line to the Ordnance Factory Ambajhari (OFA). Following NMC's demand, the district administration had transferred the land from OFA to the civic body in 2007.
NMC's negligence towards the project delayed it to a great extent. Problems of user of the land also cropped up. The state government had changed user of the entire land to commercial in 2010. Corporator Sandip Joshi had proposed the project during his tenure as standing committee chairman in 2010-11. The project featured for the first time in the budget during the tenure of ruling party leader Dayashankar Tiwari as standing committee chairman in 2012-13. Thus, NMC took five years to prepare and finalize the detailed project report of the project.
Of the ten sectors in London Street, the project will begin with hospitality zone followed by residential in second and third phase, hospitals with residential in fourth and fifth phase, various projects for NMC in sixth phase, again residential in seventh phase and commercial, administrative and conventional in remaining phases.
Under the project, the private agency will get possession of the land. NMC will have to create a third party interest in the private agency's name for 30 years, which is extendable by 60 years.

London Street Metro to cost over Rs1,000 crore

The Nagpur Metro Rail Corporation Limited (NMRCL) has prepared a rough plan of London Street Metro stretch and it is expected to cost between Rs1,000 crore and Rs1,200 crore at today's prices against Rs8,640 crore cost of the existing Metro project. The stretch will be an elevated one and its alignment of the stretch has also been finalized. It will connect Jaiprakash Nagar station on Sitabuldi-Mihan stretch and Rachna Ring Road station on Sitabuldi-Hingna stretch. The length is around 6km.
A meeting of NMRCL and Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) officials was held on Thursday. Mayor Pravin Datke and municipal commissioner Shravan Hardikar expressed satisfaction over the fact that the Metro stretch would be an elevated one as this would leave enough space for executing the London Street project.
Brijesh Dixit, managing director of NMRCL, told TOI that there would be no direct connectivity between London Street stretch and Wardha Road stretch of Metros. "The Metro line at Jaiprakash Nagar station is at second level while the London Street stretch will be at level one. This is because the Metro line on Wardha Road will be over a flyover. Commuters will have to go up or come down to change trains. We will install escalators at the station. This is the most cost effective and technically feasible option," he said.
Dixit said that if London Street stretch was to have direct connectivity with Wardha Road stretch then the alignment of the former would have to be changed. "We will have to move it towards the airport, which will increase the length and therefore the cost," he added. "There will be direct connectivity between Hingna and London Street as the levels are the same," he further said.
The MD said that the construction of this stretch was some months away. "First we will pass a resolution for preparing a detailed project report (DPR) in the NMRCL board. Then the resolution will be send to union ministry of urban development (MoUD). After the DPR is ready further action will take place," he said.
The London Street stretch of the Metro is not a part of the original project. It is the second phase of the project, which is being considered on insistence of union transport minister Nitin Gadkari and chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.
