It is more ridiculous than that.

There was a master plan made (which looked like an MBA project work BTW) and presented at the city council. We did discuss it on this and other forums. It was never approved or implemented. Recently it was presented again, with a promise to publish and take public opinion.

And it had a proposal of a bypass rail line from Thripunithura to Kalamassery. Naturally, it passed through the densely populated (and land == gold by price) west kakkanad region. There was no work done on the actual alignment. It was just a 'line on the map' so to speak.

And NOW, the babus, so eager to contribute to the development of the area, have decided to freeze the land under the 'line on the map'. These are the same babus who would sit on the files of land acquisition and delay it for decades, making the life of the people who own the land to be living hell. Already there are many such frozen areas, eg for the Chakkaraparambu-Kakkanad road, IMG-Infopark road. Kakkanad-Kumarapuram road etc.

At least those road projects had an official notification to back up. This rail line has nothing. It is just the imagination of the babus. Hence the protest.

Now, coming to the proposal itself: I think it is utter waste to build a bypass rail line. A rail line do not bring development to the area it pass through. In fact it hinders the development. Using the high cost, developed land for that is criminal waste.

Cochin airport in talks with airlines for direct flights to US, Europe
Quote:
The Cochin International Airport Ltd (CIAL) is in talks with Indian and foreign airlines to launch direct flights to Europe. “Currently, there is no direct flight connectivity to European countries or the US from the state. Since the flight time to US is too long, we are mulling the option to launch direct flights to any of the European countries. We are in talks with Air India and Jet Airways, besides foreign carriers, Lufthansa and Cathay Pacific,” said, ACK Nair, Director, CIAL, according to a report by KE Krishna Kumar in Deccan Chronicle. “Cathay Pacific has already responded positively,” he added.

“We are not looking at it from CIAL’s angle but from the state’s perspective since we don’t have direct flights to popular destinations,” Nair explained. To enable the discussions, CIAL has done a viability study in which it was found that every week, 2,000 people fly either to Europe or the US. "Since Air India and Jet Airways currently have route stations at Frankfurt and Brussels, we have requested them to start direct flights to these destinations from Kochi. VJ Kurien, MD, CIAL, has offered some concessions in the initial stages to make it profitable for the airlines. Our aim is to do it as early as possible,” he informed, adding that CIAL is fully equipped to accommodate additional flights and commuters.

“Currently, we have 16 parking bays which we will increase further in the next one or two years. As of date there is no problem of allotting space. Further, there are 36 immigration counters in the departure terminal and 24 in the arrival terminal,” he said.

I don't understand the sense of a bypass RAIL LINE. I can understand a ROAD, because traffic merges and leaves at random, and traffic is more near the city centre. Trains don't work that way. A train passing through Ernakulam to the Kottayam line will go all the way to Kottayam. IT doesn't branch out in between like road traffic does. Bypassing freight trains over a separate line doesn't make sense at all.

I don't know the alignment plan. But in my opinion byepass railway line is a must, to avoid all the trains touching Ernakulam South which is making a hell in the city. If Tripunithara and Kalamassery can be redeveloped into a major rail hubs, to a great extent several trains be relocated to this stretch, while leaving enough room to EKM South for thinking more Suburban trains.

If the public gets a chance to discuss on alignment, I am sure, they can consider this route



This alignment passes thro' least populated places, very near to Smart City phase 2 and Infopark Phase 2 areas. A new station near to this, will surely helpful for those wants direct rail connectivity to Smart City.

In addition, a freight rail line is planned here, it can direct access from south to ICTT Rail line, thus completely avoiding the highly congested Alleppey-Ernakulam South-Edappally stretch.

Rail byepass is indeed a nessecity, as EKM south will not able to handle anymore traffic. Without additional lines or byepass, it will surely decay the city rail network.

But what currently happening is unjustifiable. Without planning, freezing land is not anyway good!!!

In our state, we only know YES OR NO.... Either want the project or Shelve a project. Why not we choose the middle path? We need a rail bypess, but it can pass thro' least populated places. Now its right time to do, as nothing much happened. Once all these projects get realized, Land prices will shoot and surely it will lead into more LA complications....

Shipping Corp to invite bids for passenger-cum-cargo ferry between Kochi, Maldives

Kochi, July 26: The Shipping Ministry has proposed to introduce a passenger-cum-cargo ferry service between Kochi and the Maldives following a high-level delegation meeting between India and the Maldives. Sources in the Kochi Port said the Shipping Corporation of India will facilitate the launch of the service that is expected to boost Kochi's tourism business. The corporation is likely to call expressions of interest for the service shortly.

It was agreed at the meeting to start the preliminary work for such a regular ferry service between Kochi and the Maldives. Though a private operator will run the service, facilities on either port of call will be made by the ports.

The Maldives, with a population of around 3.5 lakh, imported worth more than $1 billion. Exports via Indian ports formed just 10 per cent of the total and the new ferry service will help raise the country's share of business in the Maldives. Tuticorin, the only port involved with imports into the Maldives, accounts for about a million tones of cargo including sand, aggregates, grocery and provisions, etc.

The service will fillip the plan of the Kochi Port to grow into a cargo hub and target business in the Maldives. Besides, it will also promote tourism in the region as the number of Indians visiting the Maldives, now around 25,000 annually, is expected to increase.

The Chairmen of Kochi Port and Tuticorin Port were part of the Indian delegation led by the Shipping Secretary to improve bilateral maritime cooperation.

Update: This is what I got from the PIO of KSIDC about the holding up of the Amballoor Electronics City project:

Quote:
The Govt had stalled the land acquisition of the Electronic City project for the time being. KSIDC is taking up the issue with the Govt.
No wonder! It is the pet project of Elamaram, and Kunhali want to kill it. Can Jacob do something?

This project is much more valuable for the society than the IT projects. The Electronics hub employs people with ITI/Diploma who are generally from the lower rungs of the society.

Kochi's traffic woes

With the Kochi Corporation giving the green signal for the demolition of the North Overbridge, chaos is expected on city roads as the traffic on the Banerji Road will be diverted to various byroads.

The alternative routes suggested only adds to the woes. As usual, the biggest problem is nothing but the poor condition of the roads. Entry for vehicles from the Aluva side is routed to MG Road via Thammanam and Kathrikkadavu junctions. Vehicles should go to Thammanam Junction from Palarivattom and then proceed along the Thammanam-Pullepady Road to reach C P Ummer Road and Chittoor Road before touching MG Road. The road from Thammanam Junction to Kathrikkadavu Junction and the C P Ummer Road are already narrow. When traffic, including medium vehicles and two-wheelers, divert to these roads, there will be utter chaos along these stretches.

The police have suggested two more routes (diversion from the main road in front of the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium and at Kaloor Junction ) to reach Kathrikkadavu Junction. But the traffic regulation notice does not say anything about controlling traffic at Kathrikkadavu Junction. The underpass near the Kathrikkadavu railway overbridge is in a neglected state and hardly any vehicle uses the route to get across the chaotic traffic at the junction. “The proposed regulations were submitted for the consideration of Corporation council. We are looking into all the alternatives to make traffic congestion-free. The under pass will be used. As for sign boards, the DMRC has to take a decision,” said Mohammed Rafik, Assistant Commissioner, City Traffic.

The proposed regulations suggest two routes for vehicles going out of the city. One route is an exit towards Edappally touching Pachalam-Pottakuzhi-Elamakkara and Edappally. The other is a diversion from MG Road to Veekshanam Road and then on to Thammanam-Pullepady Road. The proposed regulation notice states that vehicles coming from Kaloor to Ernakulam Town Railway Station should divert to Manapatty Parambu, then turn left to SRM Road to reach the station’s eastern entry. Though it provides an alternative road, there is no parking space near the station's eastern gate.

Meanwhile, the business community has expressed their apprehensions over the expected traffic congestion once the work begins. The Kerala Chamber of Commerce and Industry chairman Deepak Aswani said that the Corporation did not implement any of the decisions taken at the meeting held last month on the pre-demolition steps to be taken.

“Thammanam-Pullepady approach road has not been widened and the Salim Rajan Road ROB is not ready. The Chief Minister who was present at the meeting had allotted Rs 25 crore as immediate funds for road widening projects,” he said.

Metro Acquisition details

Quote:
Metro Land Acquisition and number of bldgs to be acquired has been published in the Metro Website. As per the details available, 16 acres of land has to be acquired with more than 292 bldgs. This includes acquisition of 40 residential units, 111 commercial units, 2 hospitals, 8 government offices which includes Southern Railways too, 1 KSEB station and 130 minor structures like compound walls, boundaries, portion of residential/commercial lands and gates etc.

Within Ernakulam 23 commercial units will be acquired, mainly for station areas like Madhava Pharmacy, Maharaja's Ground, South area.

Almost all the structures located in Swami Chinmayanada road (Jos Junction-Chittoor Road area) like Bimbis, Veetukattil, Santigiri Hotels etc have to be acquired, which records for maximum number of commercial units acquired within CBD area.

Likewise 4 commercial units between Madhava Pharmacy-Kacheripady stretch has to be acquired, apart from 3 buildings at the turning radius in Madhava Pharmacy has to be acquired.

Its also strange to note, NOT A SINGLE RESIDENTIAL BLDG has to be acquired in CBD.

In Palarivattom, the current Palarivattom alignment has to be rectified with acquisition of 5 commercial structures.

More than 15 residential units has to be acquired in Tripunithara-Petta area.


It seems, the real tough is with commercial units in Ernakulam CBD. Meanwhile, I was wondering when did the Govt conducted primary survey? All surveys were halted due to lobbying of business community eariler. How could they get exact figures? Did they done survey in late night?
