The company that will build the Mumbai Metro has been formed. It'll be called Mumbai Metro - I.

In India, the Government is still loathe to let the private sector build major projects, so they have come up with what is called the Public Private partnership, in which they form specific companies for that particular project with stakes by both the private company and the government. That is true for the Mumbai/Delhi airports, and that'll be true for the Mumbai and Bangalore Metro.

SPV for Mumbai metro rail project formed

Quote:
The special purpose vehicle (SPV) for the construction of the first line of metro rail between Ghatkopar and Versova has been formed, and it will be called Mumbai Metro-I.

The state government will acquire 26 per cent stake in the Reliance Energy-led SPV through Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA). Total project cost is estimated at around Rs 2,356 crore with viability gap funding (VGF) component of Rs 650 crore.

A five-year timeframe has been fixed for the completion of the project, which will be implemented on a BOOT (build-operate-own-and-transfer) basis. After 35 years, it will be transferred back to the Maharashtra government.

It was also decided that the state government would approach the central government for financing the VGF to the extent possible under its National Urban Renewal Programme and the rest would be financed by the state government.

Besides, it was decided that the state government would acquire the required private land for the construction of the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar route and the compensation for the same would be paid by the authority.

Once completed, this 11-km metro line is expected to reduce travelling time between Ghatkopar and Versova from the current 70 minutes to around 20 minutes, and tickets of the metro will cost one-and-a half time the fare charged by a BEST bus.

It has a suburban rail system that carries 6 million people a day with metro like frequencies. Read post 10.

Hey all, some updates on the Mumbai Metro.

Two of Mumbai's biggest projects right now are the upgradation of the Mumbai International Airport and the Mumbai Metro. Both have finally cleared the red tape and are moving along.

MIAL eyes pact with R-ADAG for metro link

Quote:
Mumbai International Airport Pvt Ltd (MIAL) is in talks with a consortium led by Reliance - Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group, which has bagged the contract for Mumbai metro project, to provide direct rail link to the new airport terminal.

"A direct access from the metro is an option and we are exploring it. We are in talks with Mass Rapid Transit Project (MRTP) for providing a direct access to the airport terminal from the proposed metro rail project," MIAL managing director G V Sanjay Reddy told reporters here today.

The original plan of mumbai metro does not envisage connectivity to the city airport. However, GVK suggested a separate link to the airport be provided from Saki Naka and an elevator be constructed so that passengers are able to access the terminal building.

The first corridor will be completed within three years by a special purpose vehicle (SPV) formed by Mumbai Metro-I consortium.

The GVK-South African Airport consortium, which bagged the Mumbai airport modernisation programme, is also planning to build a six to eight lane parallel access way from the Western Express Highway to provide another direct access to the airport.

Hey all,

The Prime Minister of India laid the foundation stone for the construction of the phirst phase of the Mumbai Metro on June 21st.

Mumbai Metro: PM lays foundation stone

Quote:
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday led the foundation of Rs 19,500-crore (Rs 195 billion) Metro Rail Project, which authorities hope will help ease traffic flow within the metropolis.

The ceremony, held at Vikhroli in Northeast Mumbai, signals the start of Phase I of the Mass rapid Transit System. The launching of the project is seen as a step towards making Mumbai a world class financial hub.

Singh was accompanied by Maharashtra Governor S M Krishna, Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group Chairman Anil Ambani and Mumbai Metropolitan Commissioner T Chandrashekhar at the ceremony.

The first corridor in Phase I, the 11.7 km Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar stretch, one of Mumbai's most congested stretches, is expected to service close to 60,000 commuters per hour on its completion by 2009.

French company Connex, which has undertaken several similar mass rapid transports systems worldwide, including in in Melbourne, Boston and in Germany, is the operational partner of the consortium.

The phase one of the metro project also includes the 38 km Colaba-Mahim-Charkop corridor and 14 km Bandra-Kurla-Mankhurd corridor. The 63 km-long three line would be built at an estimated cost of Rs 12,777 crores (Rs 127.77 billion) and expected to be completed by 2010-2011.

The metropolitan authority would hold 26 per cent equity in the SPV for which a provision of Rs 134 crore (Rs 1.34 billion) has been made. The project is on build-own-operate and transfer basis for 35 years, of which five years are for construction.

The Mumbai Metro Rail would be 146.5 km long and is estimated to cost Rs 19,500 crore (Rs 195 billion). There are nine lines, of which 32.5 km would be underground and 114 km on elevated rails. The first phase is expected to be fully functional by 2011, the second by 2016 and the final phase by 2021.

Metro v/s Skybus

Hi All - I've got this query on my blog, which in fact is also an issue raised by environmentalists in the past. Isn't the overhead/elevated rail an obsolete technology and wasn't the skybus a better, cheaper and quicker option than the Metro Rail ? I'd appreciate your response. Thank you.

SKybus is cheaper and quicker to implement compared to conventional metro but in a city like mumbai which is huge, skybus, can act as feeder routes to the metro rail rather than work like a metro due to lower passenger capacity compared to metro. I dont think there should be any Metro vs Skybus debate coz for a city to have a world class public transport system, we need both and they should complement each other. Like, The proposed metro route from Versova to Ghatkophar has a station airport road. There can be sky bus connecting that station with the airport and its terminals. Skybus can be used as a feeder route in Navimumbai, say connecting VAshi with other nodes of navi mumbai or Skybus routes in Thane city area connecting with Thane Railway station... I believe in a city like mumbai, there is scope for both technology...Integration of all modes of transports is the way to go forward in providing a world class transportation system.

Tintin - thanks a lot for that reply. Is there a technical aspect to this as well ? As in (purely in the theoritical realm) can a skybus project be used for the size and scale of the Metro in its full form (i.e. 146km with VAG, Col-Chark, BKC-Kanjur Marg, P'devi-Sewri, etc.?)

lets hope this metro will alleviate the pressure on the local train system and will function during extreme monsoon weather

why not expand these lines into thane district, paralleling the central line of the local train system
