Now, Bangkok has three color lines as you see on map. 5 different color lines will be added into downtown and suburban both in the nearly future.

Tube train move gathers pace


The Ministry of Communications has decided to seek approval of the cabinet committee on economic affairs to construct an underground railway network in the capital to ease traffic congestion. It has taken the move after the Private Infrastructure Committee (PICOM) of the Board of Investment (BoI) has drawn up the US$ 898.55 million venture under a private infrastructure project.

Communications Secretary Ismail Zabiullah told the FE that construction of a metro subway in the capital was a necessity to cope with the requirement of a mega city. Zabiullah, however, avoided making comment when asked whether the cabinet committee on economic affairs under the interim government can take any decision about such a giant private infrastructure project.But, he said, the cabinet division has directed the ministry to re-examine the project before sending it for the approval of the committee.

"The project proposal was placed before the cabinet division at the fag end of the immediate past government and it was sent back to the communication ministry for further scrutiny," he said. The ministry has already held an inter-ministerial meeting and completed necessary re-examination of the project before sending it again to the cabinet division, he added.

Contech Limited, a local construction firm, will build the 52-kilometre underground railway network with six major routes in the capital city under build, operate and transfer (BOT) basis, ministry sources said. The construction, as per the proposal of the firm, will be 'cut and cover' method and the whole process will be completed in four years by a consortium of a number of foreign and local organisations. The construction firm will operate the tube rail for 34 years before transferring it to the government, sources added.

The communication ministry that recognises the necessity of an underground railway for solving the traffic problem and easing transportation of the city people has, however, decided to send the proposal for approval without conducting a technical feasibility study. But it has done financial feasibility of the project, ministry officials said.

The ministry invited a pre-qualification bidding in February 2003 to set up the underground railway on BOT basis in Dhaka. Only two companies responded, of which the local firm Contech Limited was qualified.

According to Contech pre-qualification bid proposal, it is committed to keep the fare below that of surface transport and will not apply tunnel boring method that is very expensive and time consuming. India set up metro rail in Delhi and Kolkata with 'cut and cover' method.

According to the proposal, a firm from Hong Kong will work as the constructor, Sena Kallyan Sangstha, Bangladesh as the financier and project manager, the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology as the lead consultant, Hitachi of Japan as equipment supplier, and JBIC (Japan Bank for International Cooperation) as provider of supplier's credit and syndicated bank loan.

Toulouse (1 108 214 in metro area and the fastest growing metropolitan area larger than one million inhabitants in Europe ) has a subway since 1993
The second lines will open in 2007

The only Nice (933 080 in metro area) and Bordeaux (925 200 in urban area) need a subway but those cities build or have a light rail system.

It depends on what your meaning of "metro" is. BART is considered a rapid-transit system, which may or may not be synonymous with the term metro or underground, or subway, depending on your own views. If it's considered a metro, I'm sure many systems have stations that are in small cities, like BART, which has stations all over suburban cities (yes, they are incorporated cities by definition) around the bay area, with populations less than 30,000.

Zagreb actually does not need metro, at least not yet. It already has a good tram system, and it's not that big city (770 000 inhabitants, city proper). Belgrade is definitely Europe's most desperate metroless city. Tram network has approximately 130 km, but the trams are in very bad condition, and the bus and trolleybus systems are overcrowding already overcrowded city traffic.

Metros would not work in any Australasian city except the densest parts of Sydney and at a stretch Melbourne. No other city has the population density to support them without spending massive amounts of capital to benefit inner-city dwellers at the expanse of the outer suburbs, the people you really need to get on public transport and out of cars to stop congestion and road trauma. The terrain is not particularly suitable in many of these cities either, especially Brisbane with its hills (not so sure about the others).

Suburban rail expansions in all of these cities and the introduction (expansion in Adelaide's case) of LRT, coexisting with bus corridors (particularly in Brisbane).

ferguz: Malmö? Come on, it has 272,634 inhabitants (605,000 metro area). That doesn't really need a metro. There are other cities that could use it much, much more.

exactly. Although I wouldn't mind seeing an extension of the Copenhagen tube onto the swedish mainland and Malmö. The alternative would be to see the Malmö authorities implementing a LRT system. Or both things could work aswell.

Zagrerb really doesn't need a dedicated metro system. Their tram network seems to fit perfectly enough.

Oh so many things wrong with this post. Really, the term "3rd world" is just very politically incorrect and insensitive.

Anyways, Lima does have a metro system. It's small, but it still counts. Sydney is an Australian country, and I find it quite big comparitively. The three Canadian cities aren't the small either.

Are Metros synynoms for Rapid Transit? Or could it mean Light Rail as well?

Malmø needs a metro system. Same with Gøteborg. Nice with tram, but it colides in the center etc.
