kalyan-bhiwandi-may-see-real-estate-boom-

http://www.asianage.com/mumbai/kalyan-bhiwandi-may-see-real-estate-boom-950
With the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority having planned to develop a logistics hub in Bhiwandi and the Maharashtra Road Development Corporation having planned an elevated road between Bhiwandi and Kalyan, experts feel this could bring a real estate boom in Bhiwandi, Kalyan and surrounding areas.
“Bhiwandi is already a logistics hub as of now, but with the MMRDA plan, the logistics sector will be more organised. Also, it is a fact that with development of infrastructure and connectivity, real estate gets a push. However, in this particular area, there is a possibility that Kalyan and its nearby areas could see an increase in demand for housing. People will prefer to work in Bhiwandi and stay in Kalyan and nearby areas,” said JLL India Residential Research Head, Ashutosh Limaye.
“Improving connectivity between Bhiwandi and Kalyan is important as currently, the route is narrow and full of potholes. We plan to complete the project within the next three years. We have floated tenders and once the detailed project report (DPR) is out, we plan to complete the project within three years,” said a MSRDC official.
MCHI Kalyan-Dombivali VP, Shrikant Shitole, said, “Kalyan has always been an end users market and it is very rational to interpret that any residential real estate growth requires growth in the industrial sector too which in the case of Kalyan will be the Bhiwandi logistical hub.”

Ulhas to link Bhiwandi with industrial hubs

Quote:
Bhiwandi, known as a power looms, warehousing and logistics hub will soon be connected through inland waterways to other industrial and commercial hubs: Thane, Kalyan and Mumbai.

The Ulhas river passing through these areas will be used for passenger and domestic cargo transportation.

“The survey for the Ulhas waterways has already been conducted by the Central government. The waterways will help ease traffic on roads and railways,” said BJP MP from Bhiwandi Kapil Patil. The move is part of a Central plan approved by the Cabinet last year to develop 101 rivers, including 11 in Maharashtra, across the country as waterways.

The Ulhas waterways connecting Mumbai-Thane-Kalyan-Bhiwandi have been identified as a ‘separate waterway’. “I have requested Nitin Gadkariji, Minister for Road Transport, Highways and Shipping, to consider this project on priority basis as it will be a cheaper mode of transport with less transit time and will also be pollution-free,” Mr Patil said.

As per the findings of the Ministry of Shipping, the operating cost for ferrying freight per tonne per kilometre through waterways is Rs 1.06, while it is Rs 1.41 and Rs 2.58 on rail and road. The low cost is also due to direct taxes being negligible for inland water transport.

[BAI: Thakurli station on Central Railway will boast of India's first elevated train terminus for long-distance trains. The terminus will be an elevated one so that passengers who are to depart can board trains from the upper deck while those arriving passenger alight at the ground level and will be able to get into private vehicles, taxis or autos, said a railway official.
This is to ensure that the concourse does not get crowded with people and vehicles as both out-bound and in-bound passengers assemble in the same space.
"We have planned two platforms but it could go up to five," said the official. "Bids to appoint a consultant to prepare a detailed project report for the terminus building will be invited ." The estimated cost of the project is Rs1,250 crore.
The official said it will take at least three or four years to complete the terminus. Its building will have state-of-the art facilities with modern dormitories, waiting room, and booking offices.
Currently, long-distance trains originate from and terminate at CST, Dadar and LTT, while most trains operate via Kalyan, the biggest station.
Thakurli needs a terminus as the population has shot up in satellite townships, said railway officials.
The railways have in their possession 80 acres of land in Thakurli which was reserved for a power plant but the plan for the plant has been shelved.]http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/Indias-first-elevated-train-terminus-to-come-up-at-Thakurli/articleshow/51543762.cms

Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan will be next in line for Mumbai Metro corridors
— By Karishma Ravindran | Jun 01, 2016 11:47 am
map
Mumbai : After the seven metro corridors in Mumbai, Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan will be the next in line to get a metro corridor.

A techno-economic feasibility study conducted by D’Appolonia SpA, an Italian consultant appointed by Mumbai Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (MMRDA) to study the Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan transport corridor, has revealed the need for a metro corridor in the region.

According to the study, the largely industrial belt which is undergoing rapid urbanisation with the growth of middle and high income residential enclaves, the traffic density in the corridor is set to go up to over 15,000 commuters in either direction during the peak hours. This, says Hanoze Thakkar, country manager for the Italian firm, is an clear indicator of the need for a metro line in the coming years.

Under section 41 C the Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning Act, the State government had appointed MMRDA as the special planning authority for 27 villages from Kalyan and 60 villages from Bhiwandi which were notified in August 2006 and March 2007. In December 2012, MMRDA submitted its draft development plans for both the notified areas to the government and the government sanctioned the development plans in March 2015.

According to the DPR formulated by the consultant, the proposed development plans will lead to a spike in travel demand in the region. Expected peak traffic hour demand on the 23.6 km Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan corridor has been assessed at 17,500 Peak Hour Per Direction Traffic. “Considering the peak hour passenger demand there will be a need for metro based Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) for the corridor,” said Thakkar. He added that the metro corridor would provide fast, safe, economic and environment-friendly mode for mass movement of passengers.

Thane and Kalyan are major trip generating locations in Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). “A large number of people originate and end in each of the zones like Thane and Kalyan,” said the consultant.

Considerable population of working class is residing in Thane and Kalyan. Bhiwandi is a hub for warehouses and small scale industries which causes it to become a major trip attraction zone. The DPR also mentions the fact that there is a lack of connectivity between these three zones.

The DPR also mentions that besides having railway stations at Thane and Kalyan, most of the time suburban rails have a passenger volume which is more than passenger loading capacity of the suburban railway causing high level of discomfort to the commuters.

MMRDA had appointed an Italian company, D’AppoloniaSpA, to study the techno-economic feasibility of Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan region which was conducted in April 2015.

The mandate for the Italy-based consultant was to propose a metro or a mono rail corridor for the Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan.

“The metro would be constructed on the top of the road for Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan stretch which would be similar to the metro corridor in Versova-Andheri-Ghatkoper.

The metro corridor would start from Kapurbawdi in Thane to ShivajiChowk in Kalyan. Around 16 stations are planned for Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan corridor.

“In future, several other metro corridors proposed like Wadala-Thane, Versova-Ghatkoper and Andheri-Dahisar will be well connected to Thane-Kalyan-Bhiwandi metro corridor for integrated network,” said Thakkar.

“The entire stretch of Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan has wider roads and has no sharp curve which also allows us to construct a metro corridor in the region,” added a consultant.

“We had given them nine months to conduct the feasibility study, however, we recently gave them an extension and have asked them to submit the DPR by May 31,” said an MMRDA official.

“Once the DPR is submitted by the consultant, we will finally decide whether to construct a metro or monorail corridor for Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan,” said a MMRDA official.

Growth-city-planned-in kalyan-dombivali-

http://www.asianage.com/mumbai/growth-city-planned-kalyan-dombivali-014
state government is planning a Bandra Kurla Complex-like business district in Kalyan-Dombivali. It will be called ‘Growth City’. An official informed that the said facility will be developed on 250 acres of land and it will have only commercial and residential places. Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis has taken a keen interest in the project and personally directed top Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) officials to work on the project expeditiously.
Pravin Darade, secretary, chief minister’s office, said, “The government will develop the Growth City in partnership with local land owners, which means that they will be given a certain percentage of developed land in the city itself. They will also get additional FSI so that they do not incur any losses.”
Further explaining the government’s plan, Mr Darade said the government would develop civic infrastructure in the notified area and also demarcate land for commercial use, residential use and other utilities.
“The development will be carried out on the basis of the land reservation made by the government,” the officer said. He added that once the infrastructure is developed, private investors would come forward with projects like how the BKC was developed.
Mr Darade also said that the said business district is called Growth City as it is expected to propel overall growth in the Kalyan-Dombivali area. However, it will take several years to complete the project of Growth City, Mr Darade said.
“We have already identified the land where the project will be implemented. But lot of work still needs to be done. Physical inspection of the said land will be carried out, after which a detailed plan will be made. We will also have to hold discussions with local stake holders and explain them the benefits of the scheme,” he said.

Fingers crossed !!! The approach road towards Dombivali is a nightmare ! Infact the whole of Dombivali and further areas are nothing but a shit inducing nightmare. Either completely demolish Dombivali in phases and rebuild it with proper (wide) roads or just stop talking about 'growth'. It's a stagnated city with administrators busy diving their heads into sand and as if nothing bad is happening.

Thane: Urban planners and transport experts have been making plans to improve public transport not only in the city, but also in the far flung suburbs.
The MMRDA is considering a metro connect linking Thane, Bhiwandi and Kalyan providing a faster and comfortable commute for passengers here.
The agency is awaiting a comprehensive mobility study before finalizing route of the corridor.
The nearly 23-km-long new link between Thane and Kalyan is marked as the fifth metro line in a project report recently presented by the MMRDA before its executive panel. Officials informed the project could connect the metro-4 project linking South Mumbai and the extended suburbs of Kalyan and Bhiwandi.
A transportation strategy devised by the MMRDA few years ago had hinted at a near double growth for suburbs of Kalyan and Bhiwandi in terms of population and employment avenues leading to increase in traffic (see box for details).
Presently, majority of Bhiwandi residents depend only on road connect while Kalyan commuters' bank on rail network.
"It takes nearly two hours for a person to travel to Mumbai and from Kalyan and Bhiwandi presently. Often, the road travel gets delayed as the routes have become saturated with rising population and subsequent traffic flow," said a traffic expert.
The railway network linking these cities, too, is one of the most saturated mode of transport and ferries over 14lakh commuters to and from these stations daily.
"The railways are working under tremendous stress ferrying commuters to and from the suburbs. There is little time available for maintenance and upgrade as the corridor remains utilized for major part of the day. A parallel network should be commissioned by the state immediately that can take off the load from the railways," said a senior railway official.
Experts say following approval of the Wadala-Thane metro corridor, the need for linking Bhiwandi-Kalyan with a mass rapid transport option is the need of the hour. Officials hint the metro route could possibly start from Kapurbawdi in Thane and pass through Bhiwandi and then a detour to terminate at Kalyan.
Shiv Sena MP from Kalyan, Shrikant Shinde, said he has been following up with the MMRDA for ensuring the project comes through. "We are following up with the regional authority on the project," he said.
The regional planning authority was earlier planning for a monorail to connect the zones, but following initial feedback from experts and studies, the authority has reportedly decided to opt for a metro connect instead.
An international firm has reportedly been roped in for conducting a survey of the project.
