BANGALORE | Metro

Bangalore is located in Southern India and is the IT/high-tech capital of India. The Bangalore metro project was conceived back in the 90's but it finally got through in 2006 and construction work began on April 15 this year. Phase 1 consists of 2 lines totaling 33 kms and of that 6.7kms will be underground. The first train plans to roll out in March 2010 and the entire phase I will be opened to commuters by March2011.

This is India's third metro project (1st-Kolkata,2nd-New Delhi). Hyderabad, another city in South India will see work on its metro project beginning this October. (The tendering process closes in July). 3 lines consisting of 66kms will be handed to one consortium in India's largest Public-Private partnership project.

Work on Mumbai's metro will begin this September after the monsoons are over. Work for Line1 has been handed to an SPV consisting of Reliace[India] &Veolia [France]& MMRDA[India]. Bids for Line2 came in just 5 days ago.

Catch more info on these projects at the SSC India forum-Besides these more metro projects are planned in cities like Chennai, Thane (a suburb of Mumbai) and Kochi.

haha,I guess not. That's just the location where the proposed station would be built.. Probably there's a famous soap factory located there. The station names are confirmed for 'Reach 1' [Majestic-Bypanhalli terminal] on the purple line.

Yes, there is a Mysore Sandal Soap Factory (State owned) in that area. The station could have been given a better name ! Atleast, it is not one more some Gandhi station :-)

IGI,Here comes the line

Work starts on New Delhi station-IGI express link





{IGI airport is actually in south-west Delhi and not in the north-west as shown}

Quote:
After many delays and three route revisions, Delhi Metro has finally started work on the Airport Express link, a stretch that had to be altered to avoid tree-felling in the Ridge area. The work has started even as the part near the Ridge remains contentious.

The route will now run from New Delhi Railway Station to Shivaji Stadium on Baba Khadak Singh Marg, Talkatora Stadium (passing under its swimming pool) from under the Ridge. It will be elevated for 7.4 km from Vande Mataram Marg, and head towards Dhaula Kuan. The final stretch, from a station on NH-8 and on to the airport, will again be underground. The main change: a large stretch of the Ridge goes underground - to avoid felling trees, after Delhi Urban Arts Commission's objections.

DMRC chief spokesperson Anuj Dayal says: "We have divided the route into seven packages. One portion, near the Ridge, is not formally decided but we are working with a nearly impossible deadline. We are going ahead with the work on the other sections." Two contracts have been awarded for construction of the 3.9-km underground section from New Delhi station to Talkatora Garden, and a 3.6-km underground stretch from Palam depot to the airport.

Other contracts are in the stage of finalisation, Dayal says.

The line was earlier slated to run under North and South Blocks, but this was shot down due to security concerns. Following that, a second route was proposed through 11 Murti. But that, too, was shot down. Reason: it was seen to affect the Ridge. This revised route, DMRC says, will circumvent cutting of trees in the "best possible way". After getting overground from Vande Mataram Marg, the train will run along the road till Dhaula Kuan station (7.4 km).

I guess development there is strict to the Bangalore Valley and the capital because I was taken a back with such levels of poverty
maybe you should visit some of your slums in rio and other cities,

Delhi Metro completes five years
http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...ow/2650245.cms

NEW DELHI: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has successfully completed five years of operation.

The first stretch between Shahdara and Tis Hazari was opened for commuters on December 25, 2002.

The world-class mode of transport system has changed the city's landscape as Phase II of the rail system is expected to be completed by 2009, in time for the 2010 Commonwealth Games to be held here.

Phase II of the project is consists of ten lines - Shahdara-Dilshad Garden, Indraprastha-Noida Sector 32 City Centre, Yamuna Bank-Anand Vihar ISBT, Vishwavidyalaya-Jahangir Puri, Inderlok-Kirti Nagar-Mundka, Central Secretariat-Sushant Lok, Dwarka Sector 9 to Dwarka Sector 21, New Delhi-Airport, Anand Vihar-KB Vaishali and Central Secretariat-Badarpur.

The piling activity for the metro extension by 3.09 Kms which will link Shahdara Station to Dilshad Garden began on July 24, 2006. The section will be opened to the public in December 2008 and will be the first section of phase-II of the Metro to be completed.

This extension will have intermediate stations at GTB Enclave and Jhilmil and will be fully elevated at an average height of 12 meters.

Till now, Delhi Metro trains have run 2.25 crore(22.5mn) kms and the number of stations have increased from six to 59. The work is in process to add 79 stations and 500 trains.

In the first phase, three lines were commissioned - Shahdara to Rithala, Delhi University to Central Secretariat and Indraprastha to Dwarka - in October 1998.

In 2002, former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee inaugurated the first metro stretch between Shahdara to Tis Hazari. About 12 lakh commuters landed up at the stations on the first day of operation.

In 2003, passengers rush averaged 30,000 per day, while it increased to 6.5 lakh per day in 2007.

Besides providing facilities like air-condition, contactless tokens, escalators, clean platforms, no traffic snarls, Delhities are also saving their time and money.

Congrats to Dehli for not only belatedly building a great netwrok but having the wisdom to bring forward exts plans and raipdly expand the network.

A good case study for other Indian cities and some asian cities which seem to be going nowhere on the metro front like Jakarta and Bangkok.

Work on the metro is progressing as per schedule and civil work is planned to be finished by April/May 2009. After installing the signaling system, tracks, trial runs etc , the first train for commuters will roll out in March 2010.

For some reason Jai's image of how MG Road will look in 3 years stopped loading. Here it is -




Some more renderings of the MG Road station:


- Those exits lead to a lounge that will be built below the platform. (you can see the lounge in Luckystreaks post)

I just have to say - at least three of those renders use Shinkansen rolling stock. The very last one? They took a Shinkansen body and then replaced the end. It's fairly amusing.
