2 more platforms by next month
VISAKHAPATNAM: The Visakhapatnam railway station will have the distinction of having three new platforms in one year as the construction of two new platforms in the city railway station has been speeded up and it is likely to be completed by August. Once completed the station will have eight platforms on a par with Hyderabad, the second highest in Andhra Pradesh. This would mean that there would be 60 per cent increase in the platform capacity of the city station which would reflect in the reduction of trains’ waiting time for vacant platforms.

Vijayawada station tops the list with 10 platforms. Sources said more than 60 per cent of the civil works that includes construction of platform walls, filling of earth and concreting of the floor is over and the authorities are hopeful that trains might chug into the platforms in September.

It costs about Rs.1 crore for the construction of the platforms which is coming up in the island portion between the existing platforms five and six. Interestingly it was only in November last year platform six was opened. Once the new platforms are ready they will be named six and seven and the existing platform six will become eight. The new platforms could accommodate trains with 24 coaches They would be 600-metre-long with a width of 10.5 metres. The Railways would spend another Rs.1 crore for constructing roof to a length of 150 metres, providing water, electrical, toilets and other facilities, extending the foot overbridges (those in the middle and the north) and constructing stairs to the bridges ...

Maybe its theory of relativity.
Rail looks better with respect to roads

Actually when MMTS was introduced it was mainly used by beggars, ticketless travellers or by those having too much free time(like me).
(despite glowing media frenzy by CBN crew)

But now commuters might have increased.

What to do with MMTS

Instead repainting same bogies and calling it Metro, MMTS should get light weight aluminium coaches to allow faster start-stops.

I heard Delhi Metro has enough knowledge to implement indigenous solution for Metro. Also Delhi Metro is developed on broad guage, that is same as MMTS.
In phase X, MMTS can be further developed with more tentacles to reach areas like Kondapur. In the last phase , we can have trains starting as local train in Warangal and morphing into express train on the way to Hyderabad.

More MMTS trains to Hi-Tec City
Representations made by software companies pay off
From 10,000 passengers, it now caters to over 47,000
Lack of coordination between SCR, RTC is the only 'hurdle'
HYDERABAD: The South Central Railway (SCR) has at last decided to increase Multi Model Transport System (MMTS) trains to Hi-Tec City from Thursday onwards, but lack of a combined rail-bus ticket and feeder bus services continues to be a dampener.

Packed trains during peak hour timings especially on the Hi-Tec City route and representations made by software companies appear to have made the SCR see reason.

84 services : SCR had announced 84 services with considerably increased speed from the current 65 services. MMTS services were started in 2003 with 47 trains with a patronage of 10,000 passengers a day that gradually rose to 39,000 passengers in December 2005. The APSRTC too began to run 50 feeder link bus services to stations after much cajoling. And just when MMTS appeared to be gaining momentum, the Railway Board sat on proposals to increase frequency, common ticket and the second phase. Soon, the RTC that was operating the feeder services albeit reluctantly, decided to withdraw them. "We were operating buses at a loss from the beginning because of poor occupancy ratio," says Regional Manager C. Pandu Ranga Murthy.

Conflicting views: SCR too kept stating that MMTS was a loss-making project despite an increase in patronage to nearly 47,000 a day in September 2006. This was said to be the result of better services and increase in commuter traffic, but RTC refused to budge on reintroducing feeder buses.

MMTS officials, however, felt RTC was competing rather than complementing the train services. When the railways approved the common ticket last year, the details were not to RTC's liking. "Railways put common pass ticket at Rs.450 with RTC's share being Rs.290 and Rs.160 for SCR, but this entailed a loss of Rs.50 to RTC as its general bus pass costs Rs.340," explained a senior official.

Acceptable solution: Despite numerous meetings both organisations were unable to reach a mutually acceptable solution for apportioning of revenue common across cities world over. "Both SCR and RTC calculate operating costs differently, hence there is no common ground," points out an official.
over 47,000 (almost 7 months ago!)

5 new fire stations for city
24 Jul, 2007 l 0149 hrs ISTlTNN
Quote:
HYDERABAD: Five new fire stations and 11 new fire outposts would soon come up in the jurisdiction of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC).

Announcing this in reply to a question by MIM floor leader Akbaruddin Owaisi, Home Minister K Jana Reddy said the new fire stations were being set up keeping in mind the requirements of the city. He conceded that the existing number of fire stations in Greater Hyderabad were not according to stipulated norms and said they would be updated in a periodic manner...

Five other areas that would have a fire station are Secunderabad, High Court complex, Madhapur, Filmnagar and Himayatnagar.

HC puts off case by IMG
Hyderabad, July 23: A bench comprising Chief Justice G.S. Singhvi and Justice C.V. Nagarjuna Reddy on Monday heard the arguments in a writ filed by IMG Bharatha Academy challenging the action of the State government in cancelling the allotment of 450 acres made in its favour by the then TD government.

The bench adjourned the matter to Tuesday for further hearing. Senior counsel from Supreme Court Dinesh Dwivedi appearing on behalf of IMG contended that in the globalisation era respective governments were allotting land in favour of companies which have technical expertise and that there was nothing wrong in allotting more than 700 acres land in favour of IMG Bharatha.

The bench wanted to know what was the assessment made by the government before allotting such a huge extent of land in favour of the company. The bench commented that in AP, there is a trend of giving more than 200 acres of land in favour of companies. The case will be heard tomorrow.

Part of the bogies will be made of aluminium. IR didnt have the know-how to manufacture them. Thats why they thought of importing wholesale.

Recently I read Delhi Metro people saying they can copy know-how and manufacture locally. A seperate corporation should be craved out of IR for Metro needs.

Exclamation Metro rail bids opened

Quote:
Hyderabad, July 24: Technical bids submitted by the five shortlisted consortia in the race for building the metro rail project for the city were opened by the Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited here on Monday.

The bids of the potential build, operate and transfer (BOT) developers for the Rs. 8,482-crore project will now be evaluated by two technical committee teams, one led by prime consultant Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and another led by owner’s consultant - Span-SEMALY, independent of each other.

The five shortlisted consortia are Essar Constructions, SREI, Singapore MRT, SEC & STE (Singapore); Magna Allmore (Malaysia), Siemens (Germany), Emirates Trading Agency (ETA-Dubai) & Nagarjuna Construction Company (NCC); Reliance Energy & Bombardier (Canada); GVK, Gammon, Alstom (France) & IDFC; Navabharat, Maytas, ItalThai (Thailand) & IL&FS. Metro rail phase one is being planned on routes of (Line 1) - Miyapur to L.B.Nagar, (L2) Jubilee Bus Station to Falaknuma and (Line 3) - Habsiguda to Madhapur for 66 kilometres and with 63 stations at an average interval of 1-km each.

HMR Managing Director N.V.S.Reddy expressed satisfaction over the comprehensive technical bids documents and expects both the consultants’ teams to take just about a month’s time to scrutiny the documents and give their respective recommendations to the Government.

“We want to go about it in a transparent manner by studying each and every aspect. Both consultants will meet on Tuesday to discuss the modalities of evaluation,” he said.
It ll take decades to complete this project!!!

Yeah, we need a lot more of these in the city right now. Hope these are properly equipped stations rather than just namesake stations. With all the high-rise activity picking up and the development going on Hyderabad needs a solid fire department.

Global wagon majors eyeing Indian market

The ambitious Rs 30,000 crore dedicated freight corridors and metro projects of various states have helped India attract global rail transport giants to invest in the country.

Three major companies, Japanese giant Toshiba, Canadian major Bombardier and GE, are looking at manufacturing wagons and coaches in the country.

A high-level delegation from Toshiba is in talks with Indian Railways for manufacturing coaches and locomotives. Canada’s Bombardier Transportation will soon set up a multi-million dollar rail car manufacturing facility in the country, while GE has picked up a 15 per cent stake in private wagon-maker Titagarh Wagons.

Other international transport majors in the queue include Mitsubishi, Alstom, Siemens and Itochu.

A senior railway ministry official said the government had talks with MNCs, including Toshiba and Bombardier, for setting up locomotives and coaches to supplement the upcoming metros and the dedicated freight corridor.

Bombardier Transportation, a group company of $15 billion aircraft-to-rail equipment maker Bombardier, will shortly set up a greenfield plant in India to make rail cars for the Delhi Metro project. Bombardier Transportation is looking at Baroda or Hyderabad for the first greenfield investment by an MNC for rail equipment.

Bombardier Transportation recently won a $590 million order for 340 rail metro cars from Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). Deliveries of the trains are scheduled to begin in the last quarter of 2008, with the final deliveries expected to take place in 2010 before the Commonwealth Games. In the phase-II expansion of Delhi Metro, Bombardier’s metro cars will transport 4 million passengers every day.

Rajeev Jyoti, managing director, Bombardier Transportation (India), said: “We are looking at setting up a greenfield facility either in Baroda or Hyderabad to undertake manufacturing of metro cars. Though investment details are not finalised, we are expediting the process as we have secured the Delhi Metro car project.”

Initially, Bombardier will build car bodies, bogies and the propulsion system in Germany and Sweden and later they will be shifted to the greenfield facility in India.

Meanwhile, GE Equipment Services (GEES) has entered India by picking up a 15 per cent equity stake in Titagarh Wagons, a leading domestic private wagon maker.

Besides manufacturing wagons, GEES would also set up facilities for maintenance of wagons and signalling equipment in India.

Mitsubishi Corporation is also exploring options to set up a locomotive manufacturing and maintenance facility like other global giants such as Siemens, Alstom and Itochu.

Indian Railways will require Rs 60,000 crore for completing its projects, including strengthening, modernising and creating new infrastructure. The ministry is adopting private-public partnership (PPP) to source the funds.

The suburban rail transport in Hyderabad is not cyclic.After two peak hour services in the mornings the frequency is reduced drastically after 11 A.M .Between noon and 3P.M there r no services.After which the frequency is muted up to 5 P.M.There after the frequency is gradually increased up to 9P.M in the evenings.There is low patronage due to low frequency and indefinite timings.There is nothing to cheer about when suburban rail users r hardly around say 50000 (30000 according to a Railway official) in a metropolitan and most happening city.People in Hyderabad have this habit of using their own transport for traveling
long distances in the city.They can as well use their own transport up to the nearest suburban station from their residence,park there and use rail transport as is happening in Mumbai and Chennai.
