Trivandrum Bus Terminus Project.

Project Information Brief:

The project information brief for the Upgradation, Construction and Maintenance of Trivandrum Bus Terminus Project (Thampanoor and Enchakkal Bus Terminal) on Public Private Partnership Format was prepared by IL&FS Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (IIDC) in 2004.

http://old.kerala.gov.in/tudp/tbtp.pdf

Quote:
Government of Kerala (GoK) has proposed to develop a Greenfield Bus Terminus at Enchakkal for long distance bus services and Upgrade the existing Thampanoor Bus Terminal station for catering to the short distance buses (within the districts of Kerala).


This is being done in order to relieve the city of its congestion problem to some extent, improve its operation efficiency & passenger comfort and to cater to meet the future traffic demand. Both the bus terminals would cater to about 2500 arrivals and departures daily. Certain space would be provided, in both the bus terminal areas, for the development of commercial/office space so as to enhance the commercial viability of the project

The Project is being developed by IL&FS Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (IIDC) under the Project Development and Promotion Partnership (PDPP) between GoK and IIDC

It also includes tourist destinations Ponmudi
Hill Resort and Beach stretch from Varkala to Vizhinjam.

City’s steady growth in the commercial, tourism and other service sectors have resulted in increased inter and intra city traffic. The city inclusive of TRIDA area accommodates a total of about eleven lakh population (as on 2001). Being an administrative capital of the state, The city of
Thiruvananthapuram is visited by large number of intra-state population almost everyday,especially from the TCR area. For a city of this size and nature, public transport becomes vital, notonly in catering to the local commuting needs, but also for domestic and international tourists.

Government of Kerala (GOK) is keen to improve the infrastructure facilities in TCR. Several projects such as Water Supply Scheme, Improvement of City Roads, Street Lighting Projects etc. have been taken up under this initiative.

As part of this initiative, Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) alongwith Department of Transport, GOK proposes to improve and upgrade Thampanoor Central Bus Station and construct a new bus terminal at Enchakkal. Both these terminal would be implemented in an integrated manner under Thiruvananthapuram Bus Terminus Project (TBTP) on the basis of Public Private Partnership format.

(a) Upgradation and Maintenance of Thampanoor Central Bus Station (short distance travel) along with passenger amenities and infrastructural facilities

(b) Construction and Maintenance of new bus terminal at Enchakkal (long distance travel) and providing essential passenger amenities along with infrastructure.

Thampanoor Central Bus Station (CBS), located opposite to the Thiruvananthapuram Central Railway Station, caters to about 1240 bus arrivals and 1250 departures daily out of which 45% trips account for long distance buses and 55% for the Moffusil buses (short distance within

These two projects are proposed to be implemented in an integrated manner under the aegis to Thiruvananthapuram Bus Terminus Project (TBTP). It is proposed to implement the project on Public Private Partnership (PPP) format through Build, Lease and Maintain (BLM) model.

The private sector operator would be required to undertake design, finance, upgradation, construction and maintenance of both the bus terminal during given authorization period. Apart from the bus terminus facilities, passenger amenities, etc it is proposed to develop commercial complex with retail and office space at both the bus terminals. Private Sector Operator will be
able to recover its investment through:
  • Lease rentals from the developed office and retail space in commercial complex
  • Lease rentals from the kiosk and shops at the platforms.
  • Passenger amenity fees from the passengers using deluxe waiting hall at both the stations.
  • Parking fees from the two-wheelers and four wheelers (private and taxis)
  • Advertising revenue from the bus terminus.

Existing Demand Assessment (2004)

IIDC, through M/s Wilbur Smith Associates Pvt. Ltd. have carried out passenger and bus count surveys for assessing the existing demand at CBS. Sailent outcomes of the surveys are as follows:
  • About 1250 bus departures and 1240 bus arrivals take place daily at the Thampanoor CBS.
  • Within peak hours (1000 – 1100 hrs), about 100 bus departures and 90 bus arrivals take place.
  • Among the total arrivals and departures during peak hour, 60% are short distance service and remaining 40% are long distance buses.
  • Daily passenger footfall at CBS is about 94,000 passengers with peak hour footfall close to 6000 passengers.
  • Currently at CBS buses are parked in bus bay for about 15 minutes and about 5 minutes time is taken for alighting.
  • As per the past trends, travel demand is growing at the rate of almost 4% per annum

Cabinet Nod for the 'Thampanoor Central Bus Station' obtained in January 2010.

Quote:
Cabinet nod for bus terminal work

Staff Reporter



A sketch of the bus terminal complex which will come up at Thampanoor.

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: With the Cabinet giving approval for the bus terminal complex of the Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) at the central bus station in Thampanoor on Wednesday, the hurdles for commencing the Rs.55.93-crore project have been cleared. “We hope to begin the work in January itself,” a top KSRTC official said.

Being implemented on Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) concept, the project is a joint venture of the Kerala Transport Development Finance Corporation (KTDFC) and the KSRTC. Minister for Transport Jose Thettayil said the project was aimed at increasing KSRTC’s revenue from non-ticketing sources and help it come out of financial crisis. The KTDFC will hand over the complex to the KSRTC once it recovers the amount invested.

The KSRTC had already demolished the building in Thampanoor to construct the 10-storied complex, which is to come up on the southern side of the KSRTC premises facing Ponnara Sreedhar Park.

Going green

The Minister said the complex had been designed as per international standards, with modern facilities for commuters. Green building technology will be adopted.

Apart from being an alighting and boarding point for passengers, the complex will have shopping facilities too. Convention centres to organise meetings and marriage ceremonies too are being planned. As many as 145 cars and 250 two-wheelers can be parked in the basement alone.

Parking facilities

The ground floor will house the bus bay, passenger platform, terminal facilities, that include office, enquiry, ticketing among other things, a central lobby and commercial area. Twenty-nine buses can be parked at the bus bays at a time.

The first floor will house a commercial area and a central lobby. The second floor, in addition to the space for the shops and a central lobby, will have the facility to park 87 cars at a time. The third floor will house a convention centre and food court in addition to the central lobby. Eighty-seven cars can be parked on the third floor.

Floors from the fourth onwards will have areas demarcated for setting up offices. Mr. Thettayil said a 2,000 sq.ft. administrative block had been made part of the complex. The offices of the KSRTC and the rest rooms for the corporation employees will come up in the administrative block.

Flyover

A flyover has also been proposed to the railway station for the hassle-free movement between the complex and the station.

CM to lay stone on Feb 2

Express News Service: 29 Jan 2010

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan will lay the foundation stone for the new bus terminal complex at Thampanoor, which will be constructed at a cost of Rs 56 crore, on February 2.

The Chief Minister will be laying the foundation stone for a much sought-after project in the city, which would undoubtedly provide a bus complex of international standards.

The amount required for the construction will be funded by KTDFC and after the completion of the work, 50 percent of the revenue generated through rent and other means will be given to the KSRTC every month.
