Great looking trains, congradulations Mumbai.
It's great to see all the new monorail construction for true mass/rapid transit going on. Monorail seems to be getting the respect it deserves and as more systems get built in India, Brazil, China, S.Korea, Japan and other countries it's future is secure.

L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited (LTMRHL), the SPV of Larsen & Toubro (L&T), the leading engineering and construction companies in India, has chosen Keolis to operate and maintain the new Metro in Hyderabad, India. This contract is initially for a period of 8 years (including 3 years of Consultancy and Pre operation phase) and can be extended for another 3 years.

This elevated metro will count 3 lines, 71 kilometres of tracks, 66 stations and 57 trains. The construction work for the entire network will be completed in 5 years in phased manner. The total network is expected to transport around 1.5 million passengers per day. The first section is expected to be commissioned within 3 years.

The Metro will be completely automatic using a state of the art signalling system. During the construction phase, the Group will act as a technical consultant for L&T Metro and assist them in reviewing the system’s design and give its perspective on vendor solutions for efficient operation.

"We are delighted that L&T Metro has decided to trust us. We have been working on this project for a long time to fully understand the local market’s needs and are happy that our expertise can benefit the population of Hyderabad", comments Bernard Tabary, International CEO. "This is an important step for Keolis, as it opens a new window of opportunities in Asia and strengthens our expertise across all modes of transport".

The Rs 2,700 cr monorail to nowhere
May 27, 2012

Ranjeet Jadhav

MUMBAI - There's no sweet treat at the end of the frustrating wait for the Monorail and Metro Rail construction that has forced you to put up with pollution and traffic snarls. Shortsighted planning means that the Monorail connects sparsely-populated areas instead of decongesting heavy traffic routes, while the Rs 2,356 crore Metro will only cut your travel by a few minutes

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) undertook two ambitious projects — the Metro and Monorail — to solve the Mumbai commuter’s woes. However, the routes selected by the planning authority have raised some serious doubts, as commuters feel that the routes pass unfrequented areas.



Monorail
Phase I of the Rs 2,700 crore Jacob Circle-Wadala-Chembur (JWC) Monorail is between Wadala-Chembur, while
Phase II is between Jacob Circle-Wadala.

Concerned Chembur resident, 24 year-old Karan Katyal, who works in an airline, said, “I really don’t know what the MMRDA was thinking while planning the routes. The Wadala-Chembur route is a flop idea, as there are hardly any commercial and residential colonies along this route. The MMRDA is likely to face a loss.”


In the Jacob Circle-Wadala-Chembur (JWC) Monorail, the Phase-I route starts from Wadala towards Bhakti Park and Mysore Colony before passing over Mahul creek. It then goes via the HPCL-BPCL refineries towards Ashish theatre. From here it will pass along RC Marg and end at Chembur

According to Joint project director Dilip Kawatkar, MMRDA, the decision to implement the JWC line was taken after conducting a feasibility survey of how many people would use the line. “The best part about the monorail is that its four cars can carry 8,000 to 12,000 passengers per hour in each direction. One cannot say that we have not planned,” said Kawatkar.

However, MMRDA sources said, on condition of anonymity, “We will consider the responses to Phase I and Phase II of the JWC before starting work on the master plan because Mumbaiites feel that having a Metro network will be more useful than the Monorail.”

Metro route
The 11.07-km long Phase I Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar (VAG) and Phase II Charkop-Bandra-Mankhurd (CBM) are also garnering similar reactions. Commuters feel that this route will not be of much help as the Andheri Ghatkopar Link Road was only recently widened.

Ex-DMRC chief E Sreedharan, who had created the masterplan of the Mumbai’s metros, had suggested Colaba-Bandra-Charkop as the second phase, but the MMRDA went ahead with CBM first. Sreedharan said, “The MMRDA should have taken line 2 as Colaba-Bandra-Charkop, as the number of commuters going to south Mumbai is more than the number going towards Mankhurd,” he said.

Twenty-two year-old Andheri resident Ameya Sawant, said, “It will take just a few more minutes to reach Ghatkopar from Andheri by road as compared to the VAG. When there is not a big difference, why waste so much money on the project?”

Residents have also pointed out that many companies from MIDC, Andheri have relocated and this will also add to the drop in commuters.

“We took up this line, as the DMRC suggested it in the Mumbai Metro masterplan. It will bring down the travel time to 20 minutes from the 90 minutes it takes now. It will provide east-west rail connectivity for the first time,” said Kawatkar
According to transport expert Jitendra Gupta, the Monorail route between Wadala-Chembur was selected because it was easy to construct the alignment on this route as the area had no obstructions. “The liner will be useless as there will be hardly any commuters on this corridor. The MMRDA should have considered constructing along arterial roads such SV Road, which would have helped reduce the pressure on the suburban railways network,” said Gupta.

The VAG corridor will be helpful, said Gupta, as it will provide east-west connectivity through a rail network for the first time. “The MMRDA should see to it that the work on the corridor is completed in stipulated time and the problem of parking vehicles around the station is solved,” concluded Gupta.

Is it a double bridge to fit two different lines?

Yes, the upper tier for metro and lower one for vehicles.
