Phase I of the network comprises 65.11 km of route length with 13.01 km underground called Metro corridor and 52.10 km surface/elevated called Rail Corridor.

Phase II of the network comprises 128 km of route length and 79 stations, and is presently under construction, with the first section opened in June 2008 and a target completion date of 2010.[7][8]

Phase III (112 km) and IV (108.5 km) are planned to be completed by 2015 and 2020 respectively, with the network spanning 413.8 km by then, making it larger than London's Underground (408 km)

Currently there are 62 stations operational

Metro north-south corridor extension approved

Cross-posting from Bangalore Metro Updates!, posted by jammy97
Quote:
* It is estimated to cost BMRCL Rs. 1,592 crore

* It will be Hessaraghatta Cross Road in the north and Jaraganahalli in the south

* Delhi Metro Rail Corporation submits detailed project report on the proposal

BANGALORE: The State Government on Tuesday approved a proposal from the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL) to extend the metro links till Hessaraghatta Cross Road (Tumkur Road) in the north and Jaraganahalli (Kanakapura Road) in the south and at a cost of Rs. 510 crore and Rs. 1,082 crore respectively.

Both the extensions fall under Namma Metro’s north-south Corridor, which, as per the original plan, should have terminated at Yeshwanthpur and R.V. Road Terminal respectively. BMRCL had requested the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation to undertake a feasibility study on the proposed extension, which in turn submitted a detailed project report saying the extension was feasible. The extension of the corridor on the north till Hessaraghatta Cross Road would cater to vast number of people in the industrial suburb of Peenya and other establishments on either side of the busy Bangalore-Tumkur Road, BMRCL had told the Government. As per the DPR, the 5.6 km extended line on this stretch would have six stations with a connecting line to the depot-cum-workshop at Peenya.

The extension is likely to cost Rs. 1,082 crore, funding of which is divided between the Centre and the State Government. The financing structure is as follows — 30 per cent equity by both the governments on completion cost with taxes (Rs. 324 crore); 10 per cent subordinate debt by the Centre (Rs. 108 crore); 15 per cent subordinate debt by the State Government (Rs. 162 crore) and 45 per cent term debt from Indian banks (Rs. 488 crore).

On the southern side, this corridor was to terminate at R.V. Road Terminal as per the original plan.

However, BMRCL felt that if the line was extended up to the Outer Ring Road, off Banashankari, the metro could cater to still larger number of people.

The 3.106 km extension from R.V. Road Terminal to Jaraganahalli on Kanakapura Road would serve densely-populated areas such as Banashankari, Jayanagar and J.P. Nagar with traffic integration at Banashankari with Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation.

The completion cost of this extension comes to Rs. 510 crore and will be shared between both the Governments as done for the Hessaraghatta Cross extension. BMRCL and the State Government was also considering approaching the Japanese Bank for International Cooperation, which was the prime lender for the original project, to finance the extension through senior term debt.

46-storey Transport Terminal Tower

Cross-posting from Bangalore Metro Updates!, posted by 2Paise

Majestic bus terminus to go underground
Quote:
Namma Metro is set to alter the landscape of Namma Bangalore, if the state government's plans are anything to go by.

The landmark inter Kempe Gowda KSRTC Bus Terminus at Subhashnagar, will make way to a 46-storey Transport Terminal Tower which will come up on an underground Metro railway station.

The adjacent BMTC bus terminus will also go underground, literally at that.


Tenders have been invited for the construction of the Transport Terminal Tower, the tallest of its kind in the country, which will act as a hub for people availing the services of the Metro, BMTC buses and the city railway station.

The tower will also house the offices of BMRCL, KSRTC, BMTC and other state government utilities, transport minister R Ashok told mediapersons here.

With work on the Subashnagar (Majestic) Metro station scheduled to start in March, the Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL), the nodal agency for implementing the project, has sought 20 acres of land for the purpose.

Work on second line of Metro rail to start in January: MMRDA

The work on the second line of the metro rail that’s to run between Charkop and Mankhurd via Bandra would start from January, the Metropolitan Commissioner announced on Thursday.

“The Request for Proposals (RfP) from seven shortlisted consortia would come in by December and we expect the work to start by January on the Charkop-Bandra-Mankhurd corridor,” said Ratnakar Gaikwad, Metropolitan Commissioner, Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA). The seven consortia in the fray for the second metro rail corridor project in the city are GE India-L&T-CA-IDPL, Tata Power-Mitsubishi-Tata Realty’s Pioneer Infrastructure, GVK-Bombardier-YTL, IL&FS-Soma Constructions-Punj Lloyd, Essar-Alstom, Reliance Infra-SNC Lavalin and Reliance Industries Ltd-Siemens-Gammon India.

Meanwhile, as many as 14,000 families that would be displaced due to the construction of the car depot land at Charkop would be rehabilitated on the same plot, measuring around 50 hectares. The decision was taken by Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh at a meeting of the Democratic Front’s elected representatives held at the MMRDA headquarters.

“The chief minister cleared the issue of the rehabilitation of the nearly 14,000 families that would be displaced they will now be rehabilitated on the same land where the car depot will be constructed,” Gaikwad said after the meeting.

According to sources, the second metro rail corridor is expected to cost Rs 6,192 crore including a viability gap fund of nearly Rs 1,600 crore. “From Charkop, the metro rail would pass via Link Road and Linking Road, and then run parallel to the Western Railway line till Bandra. Then, it would cross the Western Express Highway.

After this, it would pass along the main road of Bandra-Kurla Complex —with a stop at MMRDA’s headquarters— and pass through Lal Bahadur Shastri Marg at Kurla to reach Mankhurd via HD Barve Road.

Is that guard signalling to the photographer to put away the camera? It looks pretty comical, but very cool to see the commuters lining up apart from that.

Why are commuters lining up? I guess it's polite, but it just reduces the capacity of the platform...

Anecdotal evidence suggests this suggested behavior improves boarding and deboarding.

It seems that Mumbai will make the same mistake tha Kuala Lumpur: 4 lines, 4 technologies, 4 companies: KTM (narrow gauge suburban railway, Putra (driverless LRT), Star (elevated LRT) and Monorail. 3 of the companies have merged since though.

Yes, but if patronage increases there will be no platform space for these queues.

I'm assuming they only do it this way because the system currently is rather quiet... There simply isn't enough platform space on the metros of Paris, London, Tokyo, Moscow, New York to be lining up in single file.

Why LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) or OLED ...

Or OLED {Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED), also Light Emitting Polymer (LEP) and Organic Electro Luminescence (OEL)}??? Now, this would have been nice ... however, I wonder if these are established and entrenched in project manager' mind, I for one, would have gone for LED's.

But I agree with earlier post, teh LED Hindi text programming is fabulous. I saw lots of tamil LED - shit in Singapore ... so it was not all new ... still ... It's like growing up with AI/IA air-hostessess in their saris and salwar's ... and then ... BANG ... Jet comes up with 'parisian' skirt/blouse airhostess do in India itself and ... the whole imagery goes for a toss.

Maybe Laloo can franchise the Air India "Maharajah" logo for his Garib Raths's ... that'd be a killer ... hehe ..

For this forum only, a cut-out of that iconic Congress leader Gandhi Sr., the Mrs. ... not Gandhi-ji ... come to think of it ... a logo out of either's profile ... would do the trick wotsay?

Hehe .. re: Indian 'sensibilites' ... a cutout or profile of Laloo ... is what we'll end up with for a logo of said rath's ... lol.
