Kolkata firm in race for country's first monorail project in
Bangalore

Statesman News Service

Bangalore, May 13: The country's first monorail will begin plying in the city soon. Work on the project will start from 15 August covering a stretch of 18 km connecting Kanakpura and Majestic, the busiest stretches in the city.

The announcement about the monorail was made by chief minister Mr HD Kumaraswamy, a day after completing 100 days in office. The monorail will supplement the over Rs6000 crore Metro rail project which was cleared by the Central government three weeks ago. He told newsmen here that initially the monorail would be started as a pilot project before going on to cover over 95 km of the city. It would enable commuters to reach metro rail stations from different parts of the city in addition to easing the traffic
problems.

Its supporters claim that by operating at 48 volts with its own power sources onboard, the monorail, with a frequency of 90 seconds, can carry 96 ,000 passengers, up and down, working 18 hours a day. The chief minister, however, declined to give details about the cost of the pilot project. Nor was he willing to reveal the name of the company which would execute the monorail venture. Sources in the chief minister's secretariat told The Statesman that in all likelihood the contract could go to Metrail India Private Limited, a Kolkata-based subsidiary of Metrail AG, Switzerland. This company, under the chairmanship of Mr Zafar Saifullah, had made a presentation to the former chief minister Mr Dharam Singh ,two years ago.

Mr Saifulla, a former chief secretary in the state and cabinet secretary at the centre, had even met Mr Deve Gowda,former Prime Minister, to apprise him about the project. Companies from Malyasia had also made a presentation to the coalition government of Mr Kumaraswamy, even offering to fund the entire project themselves. Some officials are even talking about the possibility of the Malyasian companies getting the chance to put up the pilot project. Monorail promoters have been arguing that it can be set up in a matter of 20 months at a cost of Rs 4,000 crore.

Work on monorail project to start on August 15

Special Correspondent

It will a provide a link to the metro rail in Bangalore city

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
The project will be implemented from Kanakapura Road to the Majestic area
It will cost about Rs. 45 crore a km, say promoters
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

BANGALORE: The Government has decided to execute an 18-km monorail network as an alignment to the Bangalore Metro Rail Project.

Participating in a "meet-the-press" programme organised by Bangalore Reporters' Guild here on Saturday on the coalition Government completing 100 days, Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy said work on the project would be inaugurated on the August 15.

The monorail project will be implemented from Kanakapura Road to the Majestic area to provide a link to the metro rail. Details regarding the cost and private sector participation would be worked out soon, he said.

The Centre cleared the 36.5-km Bangalore Metro Rail Project on April 27, which will be implemented at an estimated cost of Rs. 6,395 crore.

The project provides for two lines — one from Jalahalli Circle to R.V. Teachers' College in Jayanagar, and the other from Mysore Road to Byappanahalli. About two years ago, a proposal was submitted to the Government for implementing the monorail project in a stretch of 89.9 km in two phases, covering the areas not covered by the metro rail.

The estimated cost of the monorail project was Rs. 4,045 crore.

Promoters say that it will cost about Rs. 45 crore a km.

Monorail to steal Metro thunder
Work on single-track system to begin on August 15 ‘NO LAND IN BANGALORE’

DH News Service Bangalore:

Chief Minister H D Kumaaraswamy on Saturday announced that work on the pilot project of a monorail network spanning a length of 18 km between Kanakapura Road and Majestic area here would commence from August 15 to complement the proposed Metro rail project.

According to sources, three routes have been planned for the monorail network, the pilot project route being the first of them.

As per a Government Order dated April 18, the Bangalore Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (BMRDA) has been entrusted with the responsibility of selecting an implementing agency for the execution of the project. The project will be taken up on a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model. Once the selection is done, it will be the responsibility of the private partners to plan, design and execute the project.


The Rail India Technical and Economic Services (RITES) Limited has been asked to recommend three routes where monorail can be implemented. They have been instructed to expedite the Comprehensive Traffic and Transport Survey, and submit their report by June-end. The survey is scheduled to conclude in November, but a part of the survey, covering medium and high density corridors, is likely to be ready before the new deadline. They will also have to provide various multi-modal transport options for the corridors, including Metro rail, monorail, skybuses and buses. Earlier, the Infrastructure Development Corporation of Karnataka (IDECK) too had prepared a preliminary report on the same subject, identifying 52 corridors with medium to heavy traffic.

“The 18-km monorail network will be in place within a year from August 15,” the chief minister told a meet-the-press programme organised here by the Bangalore Reporters’ Guild on the occasion of the completion of 100 days in office.

He hastened to add that the proposed monorail network will in no way affect the Metro rail project or its alignment. In fact, the monorail network would be be implemented in such a way that it would not only supplement the Metro, but also have interlinks with it, he noted.

Bengaluru Namma Metro

Profile

Several MRTS proposals for Bangalore have been in the pipeline for nearly 24 years. In 1982, a study suggested that the MRTS should have a route length of 12.20 km. and pegged the cost at Rs. 239.15 crores.

In 1983, the Metropolitan Transit Project, an organization of Indian Railways, prepared a feasibility report for provision of suburban rail services on existing lines, a circular railway of 57.9 km. metro system on two corridors, in Phase-I 12.9 km. from Rajajinagar to Jayanagar and in Phase - II 11.2 km. from Hudson Circle to Krishnarajapuram. In 1988, a World Bank aided study was carried out by RITES and the study recommended a Commuter Rail System along with improvement of road transport system.

Later, in 1994, the Bangalore Mass Rapid Transit Limited (BMRTL) was incorporated by the State Government to implement the mass rapid transit system. BMRTL in turn asked the IL&FS to carry out a feasibility study for LRT System on Public-Private Partnership. However, though the partner was selected, the project did not take off. Later, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) in partnership with RITES prepared a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for Bangalore Metro Rail, Phase I in 2003 at the instance of the Government. It proposed two double line corridors: East-West (EW) and North-South (NS) with a total length of 33 km.

The Bangalore Metro Rail finally took shape with the Karnataka Government clearing the project in March, 2005 and the Union Government giving its approval in April, 2006.

Schedule & Frequency

The Bangalore Metro construction work on the first elevated section (Reach-1) from Baiyappanahalli to Cricket Stadium (7 km.) is expected to be commissioned by within the first half year 2011..

BMRCL is seeking to minimize public inconvenience during the construction period. Prefabricated viaduct segments will be launched during night time, to avoid disruption of traffic.

The frequency of the Metro trains will be every four minutes initially. This would increase to three minutes by 2021. The travel time from end to end on the east-west corridor will be 33 minutes, and on the north-south corridor 44 minutes. The system is designed for a maximum train speed of 80 kmph.

Project Highlights

Bangalore Metro, With All Its Promises

The Bangalore Metro has all the components required for a successful integrated public transport system. It offers:

Ready to Roll, Almost
Initially, the BMRC had been planning to operate the train with an interval of 10 minutes during peak hours and at an interval of 20 minutes during off-peak hours. Since the Metro has a huge capacity and moves quickly, with the completion of Phase 1, it will operate at an interval of three minutes

Everyday, the Metro rail zooms past scenic stretches near Trinity Church and Anil Kumble Circle on its way to the Chinnaswamy cricket stadium from Bypanahalli, even as the nodal agency of the project, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRC) awaits final certification from the Railway Board to carry people commercially on it. When it starts operations, one can travel a stretch of 6.7 km to MG Road from Byappanahalli in less than 15 minutes even during the peak hours.

Research Design and Standards Organisation (RDSO) having completed the oscillation trials is expected to shortly submit the report to the Commissioner for Railway Safety (CRS) to seek safety certification and other mandates from the union government to run the train for commercial purposes.RDSO executive director (Admin) A K Mathur had stated that the certification would be given by this month end. Meanwhile nearly 97 % of the civil works is complete at all stations along Reach 1 (Byappanahalli to Cricket Stadium). The track laying work on viaduct is fully complete. The pier works have been completed at all the 222 locations and even the girder segments have been cast. However, the crucial work on Operation Control Centre (OCC) is still going on. The OCC is the brains behind all Metro operations. This unit runs and monitors the trains and the stations, it also monitors the tracks and tunnels. The three main features of the OCC will be to control the movement of trains, monitor equipment throughout the network and communicate intelligent information.The control room will have a view gallery, maintenance and support room, police room and a crisis management room.

BMRC on its official website has mentioned that it would take a few more weeks to complete the work. “Other works like stabling shed or repair workshop or operation control center etc are in good progress and expected to be fully completed by August 2011,” it said. Work on escalators is also almost over. Each of the Metro stations will have facilities like escalators, lifts, announcement system and signages to guide commuters.

Apart from the main infrastructure, the BMRC is working towards providing about 150 metres of footpath on either side of the stations which would of world class level. Already, work has begun at several stations along the Reach 1.
The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) will execute this work. This is planned on a cost sharing basis between the BBMP and BMRC. Pedestrian crossings will be ensured at required places after consulting the BBMP and the traffic cops.
On the other hand, work has also begun to recreate the boulevard on MG Road. A BMRC official said that the Karnataka Rural Infrastructure Development Limited KRIDL would take up the restoration work.

“For the flow of rainwater, drains would be constructed. Later, work on restoration of boulevard will begin. It will take nine months to complete the project,” said a senior engineer with BMRC. Flowering trees including gulmohar, copper pod and many other different species of trees would be planted along the stretch. KRIDL said that they would restore the old elevated boulevard pathway with many amenities. The elevated pathway would extend to the MG Road station. Passengers can take this pathway to reach the station. There will be two toilets for general public, an open air theatre, a plaza for sculptures, book fair, play area with seating arrangements. There will also be an art gallery for artwork display, demonstrations and workshops. “It will take at least six months to build the boulevard. The design and authenticity would not be hampered,” said an official.

BRISK WORK ON AT OTHER REACHES
According to the BMRC nearly 65 % of the work on laying viaduct on Reach 2 (Magadi Road and Mysore Road Terminal) is complete. Out of 1173 piles, nearly 1118 piles have been completed. Out of 242 piers, work on 162 piers is over. Nearly 1243 segments have been cast out of 2117. Besides, 99 % of foundation work is complete. Construction of concourse level and platform level pier and pier arm at Magadi Road is complete. At other stations like Tollgate, Hosahalli, Vijayanagar, Deepanjali Nagar and Mysore Road, work is progressing. On Reach 3 between Swastik and Yeshwanthpur viaduct, out of 961 piles nearly 865 piles are complete. Nearly 160 piers are cast out of 205. However, the work at the station is 46.42 % complete in Yeshwantpur, Soap Factory and Mahalakshmi stations. Nearly 51.3 % work is complete in Rajajinagar, Kuvempu Road and Malleswaram Stations. Along Reach 3A from Yeshwantpur to Peenya Depot, the construction work has started and pilling work is in progress. Out of 944 piles, 673 piles have been laid. Nearly 543 segments were cast out of 1280. Only piling works have been completed at the stations in Peenya Industrial Area Station and Peenya Village Stations. From Peenya Village Station to Hessarghatta Cross Station that forms the Reach 3B of Metro Rail, work on 129 piles has been completed out of 346 and 259 segments cast out of 772. Only two piers have been constructed out of 83. At the Jalahalli Station, 191 working piles have been completed out of 208 piles. Along Reach 4 between KR Market to RV Road, 596 piles have been laid out of 603 piles. Work on 142 pile caps is complete out of 147. BMRCL has completed the segment casting work in this stretch.
Nearly 77.5 % of work is complete on KR Road, 72.5 % on Lalbagh and 55 % on South End Circle stations. Around 62 % work is complete in Jayanagar Station and 59.5 % at RV Road Station. On Reach 4A (RV Road to Puttenahalli Cross), three test piles have been completed. 326 piles (out of 550), 49 pile caps (out of 141) are also done.

BMTC - Trial run of Corona Skypak City Bus. A semi-low floor air-conditioned bus

A press release from the BMTC said the bus and coach industry were in a transition phase, from truck chassis to monocoque space-frame platform. Monocoque structure involves integration of the body and the chassis, and is now already in use in many car models.

While Corona Bus Manufacturers Pvt. Ltd., Pune, has provided the Skypak fly-by-wire platform, the coach is integrated by Bangalore-based KMS Coach Builders Pvt. Ltd.

The 12-metre-long and 2.5-metre-wide bus is powered by a 160 HP Cummins ISB electronic engine located at the rear.

The auto transmission technology ensures jerk-free movement while the engine meets Bharat Stage IV emission standards.
