DPR for Jaipur Metro by January 2010

Quote:
The ongoing preliminary survey and DPR works for the proposed Jaipur Metro Rail project is being supervised by the Rajasthan Government and the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation.

The Jaipur Metro Rail project entails an expenditure of Rs 7,500 crore and is to cover 30 km stretch in and around Jaipur. While 20 km stretch is likely to be an elevated route, the train is expected to run underground in stretches of around 10 km.

According to sources, the Union and State Governments is likely to contribute 20 per cent each of the project cost, while the remaining 60 per cent is to be raised by the newly floated Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation from various financial institutions like the Asian Development Bank and the World Bank.

The DPR is likely to be prepared and sent to the Union Government by January 2010.

Work on the project work is expected to commence soon after the approval from the government.
Feasibility study begins for Jaipur metro

http://www.projectstoday.com/News/Ne...aspx?nid=26383

Quote:
The feasibility study for the proposed metro rail transit system (MRTS) in Jaipur, Rajasthan has begun on 3 June 2009 with a travel demand survey initiated from the Walled City area.

The Urban Development and Housing Department, Jaipur which has shown a renewed interest in the project has asked DMRC to prepare a feasibility study. The corporation has outsourced the survey work to a US-based consultancy.

The previous studies on a suitable MRTS for the city have not been favourable for the metro train project.

Basic plan for Jaipur Metro Rail okayed

http://blog.propertynice.com/basic-p...o-rail-okayed/

Quote:
ven as the Delhi Metro Railway Corporation (DMRC) is yet to submit its final project report over the feasibility of Jaipur metro rail, the government has approved an in-principle route plan for the project. As per the proposal, two corridors — North-South (15.5 kilometres) and East-West (13.5 kilometers) — totallying nearly 30 kilometers, will be laid across the city at an estimated cost of Rs 8,000 crore. This will include both underground and elevated tracks.
The East-West corridor will be from Ramganj to Mansarovar passing through Badi Choupar, Choti Choupar, Chandpole, Ajmer Road, Gopalpura Bypass and New Sanganer Road. This corridor will be similar to the one proposed earlier. A nine-km elevated track connecting Chandpole to Mansarovar be the first to be completed.
However, the North-South corridor earlier proposed between Jawahar Circle and Jal Mahal has been changed. As per the new plan, the corridor will connect Sanganer to Panipech. An elevated track will start from Sanganer, passing through Durgapura, B-2 bypass, reaching JLN Marg and then Bajaj Nagar. From here it will take a turn to reach Tonk Road. It will reach Ajmeri Gate and will shift to underground tunnel to reach Sindhi Camp and then cross Bani Park. From there it will once again shift to elevated tracks to reach Panipech.
Sindhi Camp will be the major point of intersection for the both the corridors and will have two stations. The EW corridor arriving from Mansarovar will run underground from Sindhi Camp to Ramganj. The underground metro is being envisaged to run nearly 60 feet under the surface and to develop each kilometer, the estimated cost is Rs 370 to 450 crore. In the proposed format, the metro will run nearly five kilometers underground while the remaining will be on elevated tracks. The construction cost of elevated tracks will be around Rs 125 crore to 150 crore per kilometer.
“The changes are made in accordance with the needs of the people and avoiding any disturbance to the existing infrastructure. The proposed format is expected to remain the final design. However, as the detailed project report (DPR) is yet to arrive, some minute changes can be accepted accordingly,” said a senior official. The government is optimistic that the first metro operations will commence by the end of 2013, while the work will commence by March 2010.

Sreedharan suggest 'dedicated metro fund' in Jaipur

Quote:
DMRC chairman E Sreedharan today suggested the Rajasthan Government to create a 'dedicated metro fund' in Jaipur.

During his one-day visit to the city, Sreedharan visited the proposed routes of the project and discussed its various aspects with Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and senior officials.

Suggesting a dedicated metro fund, Sreedharan said that the government should invest the income generated by the government assets lying in the proposed routes of metro rail, a CMO spokesperson said.

The DMRC chief said that this planning was implemented in Delhi also.

Earlier in the day, Sreedharan along with Jaipur Development Authority officials visited various places including railway station and the central bus stand.

"Routes and alignments are almost finalised, and the Detailed Project Report (DPR) is expected to be completed within a month or two," Sreedharan told reporters.

In May 2009, DMRC shortlisted the consultant and negotiations was under process for finalization of the contract.

And in November 2009, The Rajasthan Government formed an SPV, 'Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation' for the project.

The SPV was likely to finalise the design plan and execution of the project including finance.

the number of historical sites both on the ground and under the ground and all that sand will prove it very hard to construct.
it would be a nice change if they build it, i hope they keep the local architecture in mind and make it in pink jaipuri style.

Dude theres nothing gay about pink. In Jaipur pink is pimp so let the metro be pink, and we can make these extremely ornate palace-like pillars, stations etc. to go with that. That would be spectacular.

Metro may get nod despite low transit load

JAIPUR: Low demand is expected to pose a challenge for Jaipur Metro. The Mansarovar to Jaipur Railway Station corridor, expected to be

operational by 2013, has estimated a passenger load of 11,000 during peak hours. The minimum capacity of the proposed project would be at least 15,000 transits per hour.

The detailed project report (DPR) is expected to be submitted in next few days. It is believed that the directions for construction of an elevated corridor will be finalised by May 2010. Low passenger load is a major hindrance.

Travel demand over the route is expected to grow. The project, thus, needs to be developed to meet future expectations of the city. The DPR will have all aspects to make the project feasible, says Lalit Meghnani advisor, Jaipur Metro Railway Corporation.
Even before the DPR gets a formal cabinet approval, the state government has constituted the administrative bodies for the project . Development work for elevated tracks for a medium capacity metro system is expected to be completed by March, 2013.

The peak hour travel demand over the route is expected to grow to 27,000 trips per hour by 2031. Not only the peak hour load over the route is low, public transport needs remain high only for a few hours, the city nearly coming to standstill in late hours. Despite obstacles, the officials at the urban development department are confident of approval for the project, The metro project and bus rapid transit system will satisfy nearly half of the city transport needs, the projects are essential to ensure that city roads remain traffic free says a senior urban development official.

Doubts have also been expressed on the proposed route of north-south corridor and it is expected to undergo a review, the initial work will be launched for the 9-km stretch of the east-west corridor, estimated to cost around Rs 1,500 crore.

Hmm...I don't quite get the idea with the Jaipur metro. Transit is hierarchical. From what I remember, Jaipur's bus network is not developed nearly as much as DTC, BEST, or services in other cities. Jaipur is also lucky in having a road network that is fairly well laid out and the city's density is quite low.

+1. but indore doesn't need a metro. that would not be sustainable. city needs just a MRTS or something lik a suburban line would suffice at least for the nest 5 years. but yes it would be nice to have one!!

Pink was a masculine colour until the 1920s. Blue was considered feminine.
