The Chief Minister said that the feasibility study for the 28 km monorail project between Balaramapuram and Kazhakoottam in Thiruvananthapuram would be widened to cover extension of the rail to Mangalapuram and Neyyattinkara. The decision was taken considering representations from members of Parliament and Assembly. Further steps would be taken on the proposal for monorail in Kozhikode. The feasibility report for the project was ready.

In the feasibility reports four routes were studied. As of now the scope is for medical college to airport rout. 1st phase from medical college to meenchanda, 2nd from meenchanda to ramanattukara and last from ramanattukara to ariport. Total 23 kms.

Elathur-mananchira route may be in pipeline. No confirmation yet. May come up in future. As of now let the 23kms come up smoothly and then other things come one by one.

KOZHIKODE: The monorail project mooted for Kozhikode will cost nearly `1,000 crore, according to a feasibility study made by a Bangalore-based consultancy firm, Wilbur Smith Associates.

The report, currently being considered by the government, has also identified potential corridors for the Kozhikode Mass Rapid Transit System, or the monorail as it is popularly known, by using simulation software from CUBE and the data gathered from traffic and household survey to estimate the transport demands in various areas of the district in 2015, 2021, 2031 and 2041.

The planned monorail, which will stretch from the Medical College to Ramanattukara, will consist of two phases with the first seeing the development of the transport system from Medical College to Meenchanda and a dedicated bus service to the airport from the city. There will be two terminals for the first phase -- one at the Medical College and the second at Meenchanda -- and will have 14 intermediate phases.

In the second phase, it will be expanded to Ramanattukara.

The firm, in its report, has recommended developing the monorail along existing roadways as they feel that the project can only be implemented with minimal land acquisition to avoid public protests. The monorail is expected to address the environmental concerns of the city as it will run on what the report terms ‘green options’. A feeder bus service is also planned to be developed to supplement the monorail and connect it with all parts of the district.

Wilbur Smith Associates had been entrusted with producing a detailed feasibility study for the Kozhikode monorail by the Kerala Road Fund Board, a statutory body of the state government. The report is currently under the consideration of the Assembly and is expected to be acted on in the next session.

SPV mooted for monorail project

Source: The Hindu
Quote:


Formation of a special purpose vehicle (SPV) with public-private participation is one of the best possible ways to implement a monorail project in the city, says the report of a feasibility study for Mass Transport System for Kozhikode done by the Bangalore-based Wilbur Smith Associates.

The State government can set up the SPV to finance and operate the multi-crore monorail between the Government Medical College and Ramanattukara, it adds.

The report is now under the active consideration of the government. Last week, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy announced that the government would take steps to implement the project, giving a glimmer of hope for a solution to the vexing transportation problem in the city.

The city accounts for 40 per cent of the district's urban population, which is experiencing a rapid growth. The proposal for a monorail system comes in the wake of demands for an improved public transport system.

Based on the financial analysis and funding options, the consultant identified the year-wise investments requirement for the project from 2011 to 2014. The estimated cost for 2011-12 is Rs.276.28 crore; 2012-13: Rs.276.28 crore; and 2013-14: Rs.368.37 crore. The total cost is pegged at Rs.920.93 crore and the escalated completion cost at Rs.1,021.13 crore.

The consultant studied various technically and financially viable corridors for implementing the project. Considering the heavy capital investment, it suggested that a monorail be established from the medical college to Ramanattukara on a 23-km route and a dedicated bus corridor to the Karipur airport from the Mofussil bus terminal.

The corridor from Medical College to Meenchanda will be the first phase and Meenchanda to Ramanattukara the second phase.

The other options included a 35-km monorail corridor from the medical college to the airport.

The proposed corridor passes through major areas of the city, such as Mavoor Road, Mananchira, Palayam, and Kallai, and also gives access to the Mofussil bus station and the railway station. Terminal stations have been proposed in the medical college area and Meenchanda and 14 intermediate stations.

The consultants have analysed two types of rail-road intersection cross-sections for the monorail corridor. One of them is fitting the monorail into the existing roads with minimal land acquisition at curves and at station locations. “It was desirable to develop the monorail system with greatest emphasis on reduced land acquisition to avoid protests from the public. The estimated social cost for this option is about Rs.47 crore,” the report says.

The other option — a monorail system at centre with a 7.5-m carriageway on each side and 2-m-wide footpath-cum-drain and one-metre utility services for the entire corridor from Medical College to Meenchanda — was thus rejected.

The proposed Kozhikode Monorail project has gained speed with the State government deciding to start the tendering process. The project envisages building a Monorail from Kozhikode airport to medical college - a distance of 35 kms - in three phases.

The Kerala Public Works Department had earlier conducted a feasibility study on the project and estimated the cost at `110 crore per km. Land acquisition for the project is expected to be minimal as the single rail required for the project could be built along the medians of the road.

The first phase from Medical College to Meenchantha is 13 km long and will cost `1400 crore. The phase will have 15 stops en route. The project will be extended from Meenchantha to Ramanattukara in the second phase and further to the airport in the third phase.

The State and Central governments will contribute twenty per cent each of the total project cost.

According to Wilbur Smith Associates, an international consultant, only 37 per cent of the commuters in Kozhikode use public transport system, and that the average speed of vehicles in the city was 20 km per hour. Monorail could this to 30 km per hour, the study suggested.

Metro Rail also suggested to the City!!

NEW DELHI: Commuters in cities that have population of more than 20 lakhs can look forward to more comfortable and safer rides, if state governments are willing to opt for modern Metro network for intra-city travel.

The Union urban development ministry has decided to consider the proposal for Metro in Tier II cities like Lucknow, Kanpur, Patna, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Pune, Surat, Indore, Nagpur, Kochi, Coimbatore, Kozhikode. The Metro fever is catching up in smaller cities, thanks largely to the success of Delhi Metro. Cities like Chandigarh, Ludhiana and Bhopal are making a case for Metro, even though they don't qualify because of the population cut-off.

Jaipur is likely to be the first Tier-II city to get the swanky mode of transportation as the state government has agreed to bear Rs 1,250 crore for the 9.25-km stretch under Stage I. However, the Rajasthan government has sought Centre's approval for viability gap funding for stage II - a 25.91-km stretch between Ambabari to Sitapura via SMS hospital - that is estimated to cost Rs 7,700 crore.

Kochi has also jumped on the bandwagon. The UD ministry will soon seek the Cabinet's nod for the project: a 25.3-km stretch, extending between Alwaye to Petta, to be built at a cost of Rs 4,722 crore.

Ludhiana, Pune, Lucknow and Ahmedabad have got detailed project report (DPR) for metro projects prepared from Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), while DPRs for Indore, Bhopal and Chandigarh is being prepared.

The ministry seems keen to run Metro in Nagpur as UD minister Kamal Nath has written to Maharastra chief minister Ashok Chavan, asking him to get a DPR for the Orange City prepared.

Though Kanpur, Patna, Surat, Coimbatore and Kozhikode make the grade for Tier-II cities, they are lagging behind in availing of the Centre's offer. "If state governments come with the proposal for Metro Rail in cities with 20 lakh plus population, the ministry is ready to consider," Nath said.

The ministry has decided to bear 50% of the cost of the preparation of DPR for cities that come under the population cut-off bracket. Among the 19 cities, which have more than 20 lakh population as per Census 2011, Metro projects are under different stages of implementation in four -Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai. Metro is running in the National Capital since 2006 on different routes, while Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is implementing Phase III of the project.

Mumbai has taken up metro projects-Line 1 (11.07 km), Line 2 (31.87 km) - on PPP model at an estimated cost of Rs 10,016 crore. For Line-3 (20.4 km Colaba-Mahim/Bandra corridor), which will cost about Rs 12,015 crore, it has opted for the DMRC model, to be funded by both the Centre and the state.

Kolkata Metro, which is the first one in the country, has taken up a new 14.67-km east-west corridor that will be implemented by railways. Chennai is implementing a 45.05-km project on the DMRC model.

Bangalore has become first city in south to have Metro after a 7-km stretch was commissioned in October. The city has already got the DPR ready for Phase II - a 72-km stretch that will cost about Rs 25,000 crore. Metro rail project in Hyderabad, covering 71 km, is being implemented on PPP mode.

Kozhikode monorail awaits Union Cabinet nod
KOZHIKODE: The state government has submitted the proposal for the Kozikode monorail project to the centre and is awaiting the cabinet approval.

Two different routes, Medical College-Meenchanda-Karipur Airport, and Elathur-Beypore-Ramanattukara are under the consideration of the state government. A detailed study on the most appropriate route for the monorail will be conducted after getting the cabinet nod for the project, official sources said.Kozhikode has already been listed by the central government among the Tire II cities eligible for metro rail. The state government has mooted the Kozhikode project taking into consideration the geographic pattern as well as economic feasibility.

MK Raghavan, the Kozhikode MP, said the monorail project would not require acquiring much land.

Citing a detailed study report submitted by a consultancy, he observed that the government would have to acquire land only for constructing railway stations for the project.


The study has proposed constructing the monorail on the dividers of the existing roads, thereby minimizing the need for land acquisition, official sources said. The project, with an estimated cost of around Rs 950 crore, is proposed to be completed in three phases. While the first and the second phases will require around Rs 277 crore each, the third phase of the project is expected to be completed spending around Rs 370 crore.
According to the study report submitted by Wilbur Smith Associates, the monorail will not be a quick mode transportation as its average speed will only be 30 kmph.

"The tourism potential of Kozhikode is expected to increase manifold with the introduction of the monorail. Linking tourism destinations like Beypore, SM Street, and other locations adjacent to Karipur airport, railway station and moffusil bus stand is likely to attract domestic tourists," MK Raghavan

The Cabinet has given in-principle nod for the proposed Monorail in the state, which will come up in Kozhikode.

The Public Works Department (PWD) has entrusted the Kerala Road Fund Board (KRFB) to prepare a detailed project report in this regard. The feasibility report has been completed for the mass transit from the Kozhikode Medical College Hospital to Airport.

Public Works Minister V K Ebrahimkunju said that the discussion was held with a German company, TUV Rheinland, which had a record of expertise in the field. The company would provide supervision and quality certification of the project.

The detailed project report will be completed in four months. The project is expected to be on Private Public Partnership (PPP) model. Harikesh P C, chief operating officer, KRFB, said that the Board was studying the architecture and marketing of the monorail.

The first-phase of the monorail will be from Medical College to Meenchantha at a cost of Rs 970 crore. Monorail facility to Ramanattukara and then to Airport will come under the second phase.

The project has been prepared considering the city traffic with the projection of next 30 years. There will be 13 stations which could be developed for commercial purposes enabling extra funds, he said. “Monorail is a cost-intensive project. But the road below it will not be disturbed and there is no need for land acquisition too,” Harikesh said.

Considering the heavy capital investment, monorail facility from Medical College to Ramanattukara has been proposed in two phases. The proposed corridor will pass through major areas of the city such as Mavoor Road, Mananchira, Palayam and Kallayi, which gives access to the mofussil bus stands and railway stations. There should be financial support from the government as it cannot be funded completely by an agency. As the rakes have to be replaced once in seven years, the company which operates it cannot get back the money from monorail operation.

Monorail plan to ease traffic bottlenecks

"There was also an idea for developing a bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor from the medical college to Ramanattukara and constructing an elevated two-lane road from Ramanattukara to the airport. But the BRT option was dropped after a study"
