Metro edges on in east; focus on rest

Quote:
The long-felt need of metro rail for the bustling capital is all set to be realised soon. Of the total length of 42.30 km in the first phase, the work on Reach-1 from Byappanahalli to MG Road is ready for commercial operation.

The benefit of the mass transport project could be reaped in full only after the tracks extend in all the four directions from Majestic and Vidhana Soudha.

According to Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited, Metro will be operational on all the reaches by March 2013 .

Reaches 3, 3A and 3B extending from Swastik Circle to Yeshwantpur and to Hesaraghatta Cross are expected to become operational by December 2012.

The first underground section (UG-1) from Swastik to KR Road entrance; second underground stretch (UG-2) from Minsk Square to Magadi Road entrance; Reach-2 from Magadi Road to Nayandahalli and Reaches 4, 4A on KR Road-South End Circle-Banashankari-Puttenahalli route are expected to be completed by the end of March 2013.

A total of eight stations are planned in the underground stretch - three in north-south corridor and five in east-west corridor.

Two stations are planned at Majestic in the form of a cross and the tender work for these stations is yet to be completed. The work on the rest of the six stations has begun.

Drilling tunnel from Majestic to Vidhana Soudha is underway and the first tunnel has been dug for a length of about 330 metre while a distance of 50 metre has been covered in the second tunnel. The work on construction of pillars to support viaducts for the elevated stretch on Reaches 2, 3, 3A, 3B, 4 and 4A is in the final stage.

Half the work on construction of stations too has been completed. Track laying, power supply infrastructure, and installation of signal system have to be carried out in the later stages.

Metro has two depots as of now - one at Byappanahalli and another at Peenya.
Depots are a necessary infrastructure for smooth operation of the Metro. The BMRCL plans to operationalise Reach-3 after the commercial operations begin on Reach-1.

‘Metro could be Deepavali gift’

Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda said on Saturday that with the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) getting final clearance for operating the Metro rail on Reach-1, the government was hoping to inaugurate the service during Deepavali as a gift to Bangaloreans.

The government is keen on getting the service inaugurated by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. “The State has sought his appointment. His office is yet to respond. A senior minister from the State will be appointed to co-ordinate with the Prime Minister’s office to get Singh’s appointment,” Gowda said.

The Mass Transit System in Bengaluru is all set to change, if all the proposals that the state government is considering is anything to go by.

The current (and long-pending) proposals are mostly in line with the Comprehensive Traffic and Transportation Plan (CTTP) 2007 drawn by RITES rather than the ABIDe Transportation Plan submitted to the government in 2009.



The CTTP 2007 recommended a combination of Metro, Monorail/Light Rail Transit (LRT), Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) and Commuter Rail system for a mass transport system in the city while the ABIDe plan is based only on Metro rail and bus system and rules out the need for another system. Projects based on all the systems suggested under the CTTP are currently either being implemented or on the drawing board.

By the year 2015, the Metro rail will cover over 111 km under phases I and II with 42.3 km under implementation in Phase I. An LRT proposal is under consideration for two corridors covering 40 km. A BRT system from Hebbal to Silk Board has been cleared while a commuter rail proposal is under consideration though without making much headway.

Apart from this, a monorail line between Agara and Majestic (15.9 km) is being considered too, which is part of the 60 km line proposed by Scomi Geodesic as a Swiss challenge proposal.

As the government awaits a commitment letter and response to technical and Financial Qualification criteria from Geodesic, a crucial meeting on monorail link between Agara and Majestic is expected to be held this week

"All routes expected to be operational by March 2013"
I believe the possibility of the underground stretches being operational by March 2013 is zero. I would believe March 2015, but I wouldn't be very confident about it.

Agree. It will take a long time before they end just the digging phase in Vidhana Soudha, for instance.
