As per today's newspapers, the contract will be awarded in August. CIDCO claimed that tendering and other process they will complete within 3 months. It is looking impossible.

That's also true . But bus systems have more flexibility than tram systems. A bus in BRT can leave the corridor also to serve the feeder routes but a tram cannot.

Navi Mumbai Metro project gets going
DNMUM170798 | 4/29/2010 | Author : Falguni Banerjee | WC :422 | Politics & Governance


CIDCO officials receive the much-awaited notification from govt which is open for objections and clarifications
After much wait, officials of the City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) can heave a sigh of relief as the planning agency has received the state notification for the proposed Metro Rail project in Navi Mumbai. The notification is now open for objections or clarifications, if any. In the meanwhile, CIDCO officials have stated they will go ahead and invite tenders for the project.
A senior CIDCO official confirmed, "We received the letter from Urban Development department this week confirming the notification. The notification is, however, open to objections or clarifications, if any. In the meanwhile, we are ready to call for tenders."
CIDCO is keen to go ahead with the proposed Metro rail corridor in Navi Mumbai. Officials are diligently working on this project for the last two years. The project is sure to take Navi Mumbai to greater heights, they say.
Although the Board of Directors of CIDCO had already given its nod to the proposed project, a formal consent from the government was awaited. The official informed, "Since the Board had already approved the project, we did not expect any further hitches and were confident of receiving the notification. If all goes well, the work order for the first phase of the Metro should be out next month."
CIDCO has tied up with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for technical advice for the proposed Metro Rail project in Navi Mumbai. The agency has already ruled out underground metro and officials have confirmed that the entire route will be elevated only. The Metro Rail project will provide the much-needed connectivity to the proposed airport in Navi Mumbai and help residents of both Mumbai and Navi Mumbai commute to the airport.
DMRC had undertaken an extensive survey of all nodes of Navi Mumbai to check the feasibility of the project in the satellite city. The project will be entirely funded by CIDCO. According to sources, the ring rail project spread over 25 km will be completed in three phases. The first phase will include constructing Metro from Belapur to Taloja via Kharghar. There will be 10 stations on this route. The second phase will stretch from MIDC area to Khandeshwar and there will be six to eight
stations on this route. The third and last phase will include connecting Taloja and MIDC stations.
A maintenance depot will also be constructed at Taloja on a plot of land spread over 20 hectares. A temporary maintenance depot will be constructed at Khandeshwar on a plot of land measuring five hectares for line II.

In Navi Mumbai, new Metro route to bypass industries

PrashantRangnekar Posted: Jun 01, 2010 at 0045 hrs (Indianexpress.com)

Mumbai CIDCO will change the alignment of the Belapur-Kharghar-Taloje-Kalamboli Metro corridor in Navi Mumbai, following opposition by industrial units in the Kalamboli-Kamothe belt. CIDCO has written to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), the project consultant, about the possible change
The original 21-km route connects Belapur, Kharghar, Taloje, Kalamboli and finally the airport.

“It was passing through the private land of the industrial units. They want the Metro, but not through their plots. We have decided to change the route. We have written to the DMRC about the possible changes,” said B B Mehta, additional chief engineer (railway projects).

The new alignment will pass by the periphery of the industrial estate and increase the route’s length by a kilometre. CIDCO officials estimate the cost would increase by Rs 150 crore. “We want to avoid that. We are still trying to convince the industrial unit owners and working on a compromise,” said an official.

Early this month, CIDCO had invited suggestions and objections about the alignment. Surprisingly, none came from the industrial unit owners, officials said.

“We are hopeful the government will clear our Metro proposal as there are no objections from the public or the affected parties. We are diverting the route after opposition, so that opposition is being taken care of,” added the official.

Cidco puts Metro plan in Navi Mum on track
Chittaranjan Tembhekar | TNN


Mumbai: Finally, Navi Mumbai’s much-touted Metro rail project has been flagged off.
On Thursday, the City and Industrial Development Corporation (Cidco) floated the tender, seeking the participation of multinational agencies to monitor the planning of Metro as well as its designing, execution, operation and maintenance. The agency has decided to start the construction by January 1, 2011.

A week earlier, the Cidco had “indicated’’ its plans to go ahead by putting up signages, demarcating the first Metro route in the satellite town. However, officials were taken aback by the promptness of the government ageny, which on Thursday unveiled the plans by making a global appeal through international media, inviting consultants to plan, execute, operate and maintain the first line of the Metro that will pass between Belapur and Pendhar near Taloja MIDC, a distance of 10.76 km. The total cost has been estimated at around Rs 1,800 crore.

The Cidco will spend Rs 800 crore to lay the tracks and build the stations, while the rolling stock—trains and the signalling system—will be run and maintained by another company, which is an expert in Metro operations. The route will pass through 11 stations, most of which will be set up in Belapur and Kharghar, including the areas near the upcoming golf course and central park along the Pandavkada hills.

“We plan to build the viaduct (the civil construction) as well as the stations and award the contract to run the trains to experts,’’ said Cidco’s acting managing director (MD) Tanaji Satre.

According to him, the execution of the second 8-km phase between Pendhar and the proposed airport via Kalamboli, Panvel and Khandeshwar will also be started soon. “We want the MIDC to tie up with Cidco for the second line. Once they confirm their
participation, we will start its execution,’’ Satre added.

Cidco’s additional chief engineer Bipinchandra Mehta said the last date for receiving the bids from consultants for the first line has been fixed as September 14. “Later the planning and designing of Metro and selection of contractors for via-duct would be done. For now, we have decided to start the construction from October, but if it does not work out, we will surely begin work by January 1, 2011. The Metro operator will be decided upon later,’’ said Satre.

According to Mehta, the number of passengers travelling in a particluar direction during the peak hour (peak hour per direction traffic) is expected to be around 11,000
and the tariff will be almost double the bus fare for the same distnace. The trains, which will run at a speed of maximum 80 km per hour, will initially have three coaches with a capacity of 200 passengers and will be increased to six, depending on the commuter response.

“Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) officials have told us that due to poor transport system in the area, the Metro will come as a huge help. It will help the development of the areas in future,’’ added Satre.

Across the creek: From Mankhurd to Vashi, a line that can link the twin networks



The MMRDA and CIDCO are examining various options for integrating the Metro networks through Mumbai and Navi Mumbai.


“We will take the Mumbai Metro rail till Mankhurd. We have had discussions with CIDCO officials and if integration of Metro routes has to happen, then CIDCO has to take the Navi Mumbai line across the Vashi creek and connect it to Mankhurd,” said Metropolitan Commissioner Ratnakar Gaikwad.



Consultants Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has proposed corridors for Navi Mumbai. One of these, Vashi-Nerul-Panvel, can be connected with Charkop-Bandra-Mankhurd.


If the Navi Mumbai airport plan takes off, Gaikwad said, it can be connected to the domestic airport in Mumbai. “Provisions have been made. CIDCO has plans to connect the proposed airport with a Metro line (Belapur-Kharghar-Taloje-Kalamboli-Khandeshwar-New Airport). If all goes well, we can connect it with the current airport through the Bandra Kurla Complex link.” A 7-km link has been planned to connect BKC with Mumbai airport.

Metro project launch in satellite city by December

Published: Saturday, Oct 16, 2010, 4:25 IST
By Surendra Gangan | Place: Mumbai | Agency: DNA

If the state government gets its way, Navi Mumbai may get its first phase of metro rail between Belapur, Kharghar, Taloja and Pendhar by December 2013.

It has announced the inauguration of the project on December 31, 2010 with scheduled completion time of three years.

City Industrial Development Corporation (Cidco), the nodal agency appointed for the metro project, has shouldered the responsibility of the viaduct for the elevated rail corridor.
The agency is expected to complete the financial bidding for the viaduct, for the Rs1,694-crore first phase with road length of 10.78 km, by year-end. “We are in the process of appointing a general consultant for the project,” said Tanaji Satre, joint managing director of Cidco.

Cidco officials claimed that since the railway route is elevated there will be no hurdle in acquisition that generally leads to delay in the project. “We are laying viaduct on our roads and it is expected to go as per schedule. This will help us in completing the first phase in three years,” an official from urban development said. The department issued a government order about the metro last week.

The state government has set the time frame for the completion of all the three phases of the metro project. The Rs1,400-crore second phase of the project is expected to start on December 31, 2012 and complete by December 31, 2015. The Rs575-crore third phase is scheduled to start on December 31, 2015 and complete in three years.

Satre said that procurement of the rakes, operation of the railway will the private company’s responsibility appointed through public-private-partnership mode.

Navi Mumbai Metro work starts Dec 31

MUMBAI: With not a single objection or suggestion received for the proposed Navi Mumbai elevated Metro rail project from Belapur to Khandeshwar, the state government plans to kickstart phase I of the project on December 31.

The first phase is estimated to cost Rs 2,013 crore. The route (Belapur to Pendhar) will comprise 11 stations. "The proposed stations include Belapur, CBD Sector 7, Utsav Chowk-Kharghar, Cidco Science Park, Pethpada and Pendhar,'' an official said, adding that it is likely to be completed by December 2013.

While the City Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) will be the implementing agency, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has been appointed as a consultant to the project.

The government plans to connect the entire Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) with nine metro lines and four mono rail lines. This is the second metro rail project to be launched in the MMR. The Versova-Ghatkopar Metro link is delayed and a new deadline has been set for June 2012. The Colaba-Bandra metro rail will be the third project to be launched.
