NAMMA METRO IS A GEEK TRAIN

Namma Metro is going to be the best in world .. waiting for 20oct


http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...2128833038.cms

Bangalore: You can drink your coffee without spilling a drop: that's how stable the Bangalore Metro will be.

On October 20, when South India's first Metro chugs in, the journey will be one that has used a wide range of the latest technologies used by metro rail systems worldwide. "The Bangalore Metro, in terms of technology, is comparable to any metro rail system in the world -- in Europe, USA or China -- and is even ahead of some of them," BMRCL MD N Sivasailam told TOI

METRO REPLACES HSRL TO BIA ???

Quote:
Phase 2 all set to connect 18-km stretch
TIMES NEWS NETWORK


The government has given inprinciple clearance for the extension of Metro rail from Byappanahalli to Whitefield. This phase 2 of the project will be 18-km long and will have 17 stations.
Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRC) managing director N Sivasailam on Saturday said the state government has approved the detailed project report (DPR) and BMRC will now submit the DPR to the government for final approval in the next two weeks.
There is more good news. The BMRC will have a trunk line of 24km from IIM-B on Bannerghatta Road and Nagawara in North Bangalore, of which 15 km will be underground.
A high-powered panel approved an additional branch line
in Reach 4 to connect RV Road via BTM Layout, Central Silk Board and Electronic City which will culminate at Bommasandra. “The above projects were cleared by a high-powered committee chaired by chief secretary,” he said.
Asked if monorail was essential since the Metro was criss-crossing the city, Sivasailam said while there’s no harm having different types of transport, monorail may generate intellectual property rights (IPR) issues. “While there was a proposal for monorail connectivity from Central Silk Board to Hebbal, it has now come into the folds of Metro,” he said.
SERVICE MAY BE EXTENDED
The Metro train will run up to 10pm. “As of now, it will run only upto 10 pm. Depending on people’s patronage, we can extend till 11pm. We are open to it,” Sivasailam said.
The BMRC has readied a 3D commemorative card as a collectors’ edition for the launch day — October 20. The card will be available at all stations. The BMRC has printed 10,000 such cards and to be priced at Rs 1,000 until stocks last.
METRO REPLACES HSRL TO BIA
The controversial HSRL has been scrapped. The BMRC will now build a Metro rail to the Bangalore International Airport. The High Speed Rail Link (HSRL) proposed by the government was scheduled to run from Cubbon road to BIA.

Everything else seems to be fine but the way lights are hung at this station is atrocious.

@mahirocks, Its not replaced, only renamed. The train will still reach airport within 30 mins - nice eyewash to keep people calm.

They told 50 minutes instead. See my updates hsrl thread..

The 35 km rail link is estimated to cost about Rs. 5,800 crore and the distance is expected to be covered within 30 minutes with stations at Cubbon Road, Hebbal and Yelahanka. While, a Metro link will take about 50 minutes to cover the same.

It will be altogether different once metro reach 1 opens.. Depending on ridership and any other technical glitches or maintenance costs etc are known.

Except there will be no eating and drinking allowed on the train!

Looking forward to seeing India's third metro system up and running soon!

Delhi metro doesn't provide a facility to charge smart card from phone. Only way of charging is through customer care or through ticket vending machines. There is a co-branded card of DMRC and Citi bank. I don't know whether it allows online recharge.

Nothing wrong, it's just slow. I was thinking if there was a way to get there within 30 mins. Delhi Airport metro covers shorter distance and has more stops but the good thing about it is the baggage check which can be done before boarding the train so that you don't have to stand in long lines at the airport.
