Can these proposed water transport facilities (Hovercrafts/catamarans etc) provide any relief to the harried Mumbaikars who live on both sides of the western and central lines (Virar-CCG and Thane-CST) and commute up and down in local trains like packed sardines everyday . I have my own doubts on this.

I'm wondering why they don't do something down the west coast. Like Borivali-Juhu-Reclamation-Worli-Colaba? I dont know where exactly Mandwa is, not even on Google Maps..

msrdc is responsible for water transport on the western side.Last time they had floated atender for water transport on the western front they had received a poor response and they shelved it . It is after bhujbal decided to revive the water trasnport project that mmrda decided to concentrate on the eastern side while msrdc will concetrate on western side.

I hope all the auto rickshaws are converted to Nanos or Revas

MMRDA to make water transport sail through
DNMUM164208 | 2/27/2010 | Author : Ninad Siddhaye | WC :329

It has been over 25 years when the first plan to start a passenger water transport service in Mumbai was mooted. It was in 1983 when the first feasibility study was being carried out by the state government. Now after many years, the Mumbai Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (MMRDA) has proposed to start the project on the eastern coast. Ninad Siddhaye speaks to MMRDA additional metropolitan commissioner SVR Srinivas about the plans

What was the need to have a passenger water transport project?
Mumbai is fortunate to have a coastline on both the sides of the city. However, unlike many major cities across the globe, Mumbai has failed to take an advantage of this coastline. In fact, we have been putting so much of pressure on our public transport- especially the local railways. The infrastructure of railways has been the same since over 100 years. In other parts of the world, water transport plays a major role as a buffer to main modes of transport. As a regional planning body, we decided to go ahead with the project.

Why could the project not materialise earlier?
As one would expect, this is a green field project and one can not determine about the number of passengers that will actually use it. Though I can not comment about why the project failed in the past, MMRDA has decided on a financial model which will definitely make it a viable project. We are looking at being a facilitator for the Built-Operate-Transfer (BOT) kind of model. MMRDA will acquire land for construction of jetties, construct the passenger terminals and will hand it over to a successful bidder after a tendering process. However, the authority will also keep a tab on the ticketing and other related issues making this system more passenger-friendly.

What are the areas where Mumbai can see this project being implemented?
At the moment, we are looking at the east coast of Mumbai, where the sea is relatively quiet as compared to the west coast. The Maharashtra Maritime Board can be a regulatory body. Though the proposal is with the state government at present for approval, once it is through, Mumbai can see catamaran and hovercraft transport from Navi Mumbai to Ferry Wharf and up to Mandwa on RoRo boats within 18 to 24 months after the tender is awarded. This will allow them to reach faster to places like Vashi, Belapur as well as Alibaug.

Think-tank will work to get BRTS on Mumbai roads

Ashley DMello I TNN

Mumbai: Buoyed by the successful start of the Bus Rapid Transport System (BRTS) in Ahmedabad,a public policy think-tankObserver Research Foundationhas decided to work for its implementation in the city by garnering support from political groups.
Sudheendra Kulkarni,formerly with the Prime Ministers Office during the the tenure of Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee and now chairman of the foundation,said a political consensus needs to be reached on the issue of a rapid low-cost bus transport system for the city.If the BRTS has proved to be a successful mode of transport in developing cities around the globe,why cant it be implemented in Mumbai he said.
Kulkarni,who was speaking at a round-table conference titled,BRTS for MumbaiWhy we mustHow we can, pointed out that mega projects have attracted both politicians and the public
A campaigner for low-cost transport,Sudhir Badami,and Ashok Datar of the Mumbai Environment Social Network said the Rs 5,000 crore Worli-Haji Ali Sea Link would exclusively serve car users,while the BRTS system that would benefit millions of bus commuters was being neglected.Speakers included Abhijit Lokre,urban planner from Ahmedabad who pointed out that his city got the BRTS because of the Gujarat governments political will.
The BRTS has become a boon to commuters in cities as far apart as Bogota and Istanbul, said Madhav Pai of the Centre for Sustainable Transport.Dario Hidalgo,senior transport engineer with the World Resources Institute in Washington,said that while the BRTS in Pune and Delhi were plagued with problems,the Ahmedabad one was off to a fine start.
Transport planner R Ramana pointed out that the MMRDA,which was supposed to implement the system in the city,passed on the responsibility to the BMC and the BEST
