Pune Metro | Proposed

The first phase of the Pune Metro project got approved by the Maharashtra state government on June 6 2012.

Of the six routes proposed in the masterplan prepared by the DMRC, the elevated 14.925 km Vanaz-Ramwadi stretch will be taken up first. The total cost of the project is estimated at Rs 2,593 crore. The state and Union governments are supposed to bear Rs 519 crore each (20 per cent), while the PMC will pay the 10 per cent (Rs 259 crore). The remaining 50 per cent (Rs 1,296 crore) would be raised from other sources. The ticket cost is estimated to be Rs 7 to Rs 24.

The Vanaz-Ramwadi line will have 15 stations and the depot will be located in Kothrud. The route will start from Vanaz and pass through Paud Road, Karve Road, Deccan, J M Road, Pune Court, Mangalwar Peth, Railway Station, Ruby Hall, Bund Garden Road, Yerawada, Nagar Road, Kalyaninagar and Ramwadi. There will be a proposed extension to chandan nagar of 3.7 km and also a connectivity to Pune airport.

Pune to become 7th metro city in India

From Live Mint.com

Quote:
New Delhi: Pune will soon acquire the status of being a metropolitan city in India. According to an Assocham report on ‘The 7th emerging metro city in India’ it owes its upgradation to a fast development pace in the area of infrastructural facilities, friendly business environment, education avenues and employment opportunities.
Contributing factors include the high real estate prices and a large population base as compared to other upcoming cities. The study was carried out in four tier II cities including Pune, Ahmedabad, Lucknow and Chandigarh ranking them on eight parameters necessary for a metro city. They included social infrastructure, infrastructure availability, real estate cost and availability, transportation facility (connectivity), presence of quality educational institutes, employment opportunity, facility of financial services and business environment.
Pune occupied first position overall though it needs to improve on transportation, social infrastructure and financial services. Ahmedabad was the second most potential city providing good infrastructure and facilities and connectivity. Lucknow was placed with third rank as it needs to pick up on infrastructure, business environment and social infrastructure.
Chandigarh, the smallest city among the four in terms of area size and population was ranked at the fourth position though it was ranked foremost in financial services and business environment.
Among the four cities, Ahmedabad occupied first rank on the parameter of social infrastructure. The city with literacy rate of 79.89% has high-grade institutes like IIM, NID, NIFT, EDII etc. The city of Nawabs, Lucknow with a literacy rate of 83.5% and presence of quality educational institutes including IIM, SGPGIMS etc was placed at second position. Both Pune and Chandigarh were assigned 3rd positions respectively on the social infrastructure parameter.
Pune has a literacy rate of 80.73% and skilled population, the city is a place of high grade institutes including NIBM, NIC etc. However, 81.9 per cent is the literacy rate in Chandigarh with prominent institutes being Institute of Microbial Technology (IMTECH), Centre for Defence and National Strategic Studies (CDNSS) etc.
The infrastructure parameter rank cities on the basis of sub parameters including number of entertainment avenues, malls and multiplexes along with the presence of star category hotels.
The Queen of Deccan, Pune with maximum number of malls and multiplexes (26) and star category hotels (25) notched the top position. The second rank was occupied by Ahmedabad, with the city having 25 malls & multiplexes and 17 star category hotels. Chandigarh and Lucknow was placed at 3rd and 4th position respectively. The favourable location and smoothen process of acquiring land along with the high property prices are few sub parameters of real estate cost and availability that attracts corporate sector to expand their business.
Pune has outpaced the other three cities on the parameter of real estate prices and availability. After Pune, Chandigarh is considered to be the next emerging real estate market. Ahmedabad occupied 3rd rank while Lucknow at the bottom position was considered as most time consuming city in terms of process for acquiring land.
On the employment parameter, among the four upcoming tier II cities, Pune carved the maximum share of 32.74% in the total jobs tracked for the period January-June 2008. The prominent sectors attracting large number of aspirants include IT, manufacturing, engineering and academics among others.
The four cities are ranked on the parameter of financial services, taking into account the sub parameters including number of offices of scheduled commercial banks (as on march 2007), density of offices of scheduled commercial banks per population, number of accounts of the scheduled commercial banks per population, presence of brokerage firms, presence of stock exchange, transparency in trading system. In terms of providing financial services facility to the natives of the city in respect of above parameters, Lucknow occupied first position. The second rank was grabbed by Chandigarh. However, both Pune and Ahmedabad occupied third rank.

Pune Metro project report next month

From Express India.com

Quote:
Pune: The ambitious metro rail project for the city is all set to begin its zero day soon with the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) planning to set up a separate company by September.
The next month will also see the detailed project report (DPR) being submitted by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (DMRC) for the Pune metro project.

“The DMRC is working on the DPR for the metro rail in the city and is likely to submit it by next month,” said municipal Commissioner Praveensinh Pardeshi after the meeting of DMRC officials and the PMC standing committee.

The entire standing committee team had been to Delhi on a day’s visit and took trip across the city in the metro before coming back to the city to hold discussions with DMRC officials on the execution of the project.

Pardeshi the DMRC suggested the various possible models for execution of the mega project.

“Since the first phase of around 50 km is likely to cost Rs 5,000 crore and the civic body incapable of providing that amount of funds, the DMRC suggested a public private partnership model for the Pune Metro,” he said.

Thus, the project specific SPV for the metro, under the already proposed SPV for providing the infrastructure for the city would be set up for managing the metro rail, Pardeshi said.

The idea of allowing the proposed company to generate revenue through commercial ventures at the proposed railway stations is on the cards so as to recover the huge investment to be made for the project.

I heard Pune was planning to build a tram network with the help of France. Is it true? If yes, is Pune going to build both tram & metro, or the tram project is now changed to metro?

The tram project is separate than the Metro. It was supposed to start from Nigdi/Pimpri towards the main city. A german team had come to Pune in 2005 to do a study and not the french. However the project looks cancelled in support of the metro. The metro was chosen after looking at the Skybus and tram options. I think the monorail is still on cards.

Quote:
Pune tram project rolls ahead

PM News Bureau

German consultant company, Consult Team Bremen (part of Bremer Strassenbahn AG) has agreed to prepare a DPR for the much-awaited tram project for the Pune Metropolitan Area. A team of German technical experts is expected to arrive in Pune this month. The managing director of CTB has already sent a letter to both the Pune Municipal Corporation and the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation top officials.
PMC commissioner Nitin Kareer has submitted a proposal to the standing committee. As soon as DPR is ready in three months, work will immediately begin.
DPR will focus on the strengthening of roads and bridges and widening of roads wherever necessary to enable running of trams. The foundation stone for the first tram line between Nigdi and Hadapsar is likely to be laid in February 2006

I doubt the construction has started. They are waiting on a couple of things like the creation of the PMRDA (on the lines of MMRDA which undertakes infrasturcture projects for Mumbai). I think this is almost getting ready.

Also some of the land possession is not complete. The first phase goes through agriculture college,(same college that was shown as medical college in Munna Bhai MBBS) and the college had refused to give their land for Metro. The state had given a GO for the creation of Maharashtra's first Agriculture convention centre on this land and hence the metro route might change. Im not sure whats the status on this yet.

Metro rail project to start construction on July1.

Quote:
PUNE: Unlike in Delhi where the implementation of the metro
rail project is well on schedule, and in Mumbai where the foundation stone for
mono-rail has been laid, in Pune the ambitious metro rail project has hit a road block. The civic administration is struggling to find a suitable piece of land for rail terminus at Shivajinagar.

While the date set for starting construction work on elevated metro lines is July 1, it is unlikely the project will kick off on time because of general elections in April. Secondly, the municipal corporation's proposal for granting additional FSI along the BRTS and metro corridors to raise funds for the project is yet to get a green signal from both the city improvement committee and the state government.

The civic administration had planned to make nearly 30.50 km of metro routes and 120 km of BRT routes in the city. The PMC plans to commission the metro project by March 31, 2013.

Incidentally, it has been over six months since the metro rail project was discussed at length at a high-level meeting held in Mumbai. The meeting which was attended by the then chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh and Union agriculture minister Sharad Pawar, the government had, in principle, agreed to allow the use of additional FSI to raise funds for the first phase of the metro route and speedy implementation of the project. The civic body has estimated that funds to the tune of Rs 2,600 crore could be raised through additional FSI while more funds could be raised through private players.

As per the schedule, the process of formation of the special purpose vehicle (SPV) for implementing various infrastructure projects was to be completed by January 15.

Though the PMC's general body had cleared the SPV proposal and sent it to the state government for approval, the plan for granting additional FSI along the metro corridor and BRT routes is yet to get city improvement committee's (CIC) nod. An SPV is a public-private partnership venture by which the PMC implements high-cost projects.

Questioned about the status of the metro project, municipal commissioner Pravinsinh Pardeshi said that while the detailed project report has been finalised, the civic body is struggling to find a suitable piece of land for the metro rail station. The Delhi metro rail corporation is the project consultant.

While the PMC was hoping to get around 60 acres of land from the agriculture college at Shivajinagar for the terminus, the project suffered a setback when the college refused to part with any land.

Union agriculture minister Sharad Pawar had also said that the college will not be in a position to give land for the project. At a recent function held to mark the centenary year of the college, district guardian minister Ajit Pawar also confirmed that no portion of the college land will be given for any purpose other than agriculture or research projects.

I have some questions –
1) Will future lines use overhead wire like Delhi? Or third rail like Kolkata?


2) Will there any metro stations with both side platforms?

DMRC moots Rs 9,500cr metro rail for Pune


File photo of the Metro rail in New DelhiThe government of Maharashtra is planning to set up a special purpose vehicle (SPV) to raise funds for the upcoming metrol railway project worth Rs 9,534 crore in Pune city. According to a detailed project report (DPR) prepared by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), the city needs two metro rail routes of 31.5 kilometre length, which would be operational by year 2014.

The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) had roped in DMRC to prepare a report and also suggest the options available to raise funds. Accordingly, the DMRC has suggested PMC and the government of Maharashtra to follow public-private partnership model for this project and reduce costs by offerring higher floor space index (FSI) to the concerned developer.

"The costs for the initial project is definitely very heavy and an SPV is needed to raise funds. Our department has already consulted this aspect with the PMC administration. We expect the PMC to prepare a final proposal and forward it to the government for a finall call," a top official from urban development department of government of Maharashtra told Business Standard.

The DPR suggests a first route of 16.58 kilometre length that beings from neighbouring Chinchwad town and runs along Pimpri, Shivajinagar upto Swargate at a price of Rs 4,930 crore.
The second route has a proposed length of 14.92 kilometre and spans over Paud road, Deccan Gymkahana, Shivajinagar, Bundgarden, Yerawada up to Kalyani Nagar at a price of Rs 2,217 crore.

Apart from a short underground patch, the corridors would be formed on elevated surface, the DPR says. Other aspects such as development of metrol rail hub and taxes would add up to Rs 9,534 crore.

The project is expected to require 110 acres of land out of which, approximately 31 acres is in private custody. "We are expecting speedy approvals to this project to ensure, the uear 2014 deadline is met. Otherwise, there would be extensive cost-escalation leading to more pressures," said a PMC official.

Activists question 4 FSI for metro

Quote:
PUNE: The Pune Municipal Corporation's move, envisaging 4 FSI for 500m area on either sides of the 31.5 km proposed Pune metro rail as well as the
120 km bus rapid transit system (BRTS) corridors, needs to be opposed "tooth and nail" by citizens, said civic activists, town planners and other experts here on Sunday.

According to the experts, the FSI move has no plausible justification and citizens ought to see through the most likely scenario, in the long run, about the metro project remaining on paper while the vested interests get benefited out of the additional FSI created in the name of the ambitious project.

The activists and the experts were speaking at a debate titled "4 FSI for metro, BRTS: Just or unjust," which was organised by city-based organisation Sajag Nagarik Manch (SNM).

Early last month, the Delhi metro rail corporation (DMRC) submitted a detailed project report (DPR) to the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) regarding the metro rail service for the Pune metropolitan area, which comprises Pune as well as the neighbouring twin industrial township of Pimpri-Chinchwad.

The PMC commissioner has moved a proposal regarding the 4 FSI for metro as well as BRTS corridors, which will be discussed soon by the city improvement committee, the standing committee and the civic general body.

On a broader scale, the rationale behind 4 FSI on either sides of metro and BRTS corridors is that greater population densification through vertical development of residential and commercial properties, will make the two mass transport projects economically viable and will help generate the all-important funds. The DMRC report has pegged the cost of the metro project at close to Rs 9,500 crore, in case the project is completed by 2014.

According to Ranjit Gadgil, the 4 FSI move was highly detrimental to the city's progress and was also not legally tenable. "Developed cities like Hong Kong and New York, where the metro rails run fairly successfully, have population density of 6,000 per sq.km and 10,000 per sq.km respectively. Against this, Pune already has a population density of 14,000 per sq.km even much higher at 21,000 per sq.km in 80 of the 144 civic wards. So, where is the need for greater densification?" He asked. "If the existing population density is not sufficient to make the metro project viable than the question remains, why the need for such project at the first place."

Gadgil added, "Projects like metro and BRTS require wider public debates and involvement in the decision-making and planning process."

The letter also says: "The report says that sale of 4 FSI along just half the length of the metro corridor will yield Rs 18,900 crore. But cost of the metro is only Rs 7,100 crore. So why 4 FSI? Moreover, the density of the congested areas in the city is too much and the administration is unable to provide water, solid waste management, sewage treatment, etc. There is no plan to address these issues."


Uday Kulkarni said the FSI and the metro projects were two different issues and cannot be linked. "The civic administration is going on an overdrive by linking these issues and is misleading citizens about the project," he said.

According to Anita Benninger, the additional FSI will created 7,750 hectare space and wondered who will need such large space in the future? She said the metro can be justified in densely populated areas but the FSI move needed to be strongly opposed and it lacked apt vision.

Ujjwal Keskar pointed out that the PMC has yet to even approve the comprehensive mobility plan (CMP), which is the first step for implementing mass transport projects like metro, BRTS among others. "We are yet to see the DPRs of both metro and BRTS," he said. While additional FSI on either sides of these projects can be justified, he said, the extent of such provision was a debatable issue.

They should read about Transit Oriented Development!

In LA, they're raising the FSI of all the areas where there is a metro station! Same is done is many many places around the world!

Rs 17,935 cr Pune Metro Rail on similar lines to DMRC: Report

Quote:
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has proposed the "company formation" method for the upcoming Rs 17,935 crore metro rail project in Pune, ruling out the possibility of the public private partnership (PPP) or the build-operate-transfer (BOT) models for implementation.

The metro rail project in Delhi has been executed by a company DMRC, which raised funds from the government and loans. The metro rail projects in Mumbai and Hyderabad have been initiated on the PPP model. While the Mumbai project has so far proved to be successful, the project in Hyderabad is still in its infant stage.

DMRC chief E Sreedharan, in a meeting with the elected members of Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), said, "The company formation method will help the project move faster against BOT or PPP models."

A report submitted by the DMRC says, the government should form a special purpose vehicle (SPV) named Pune Metro Rail Corporation (PMRC) under the Company Act, 1956. The formed SPV should have representatives of the state and central governments as its directors.

The report suggests, the state and the central governments would have 40 per cent equity stake in this company while the remaining funds could be raised from property development, loans and borrowings from market.

The report states, the PMRC can seek relaxation in value added tax, electricity and other taxes from the state government.

The report also suggests a first route of 16.58 kilometre length that beings from neighbouring Chinchwad town and runs along Pimpri, Shivajinagar up to Swargate. The second route has a proposed length of 14.92 kilometre and spans over Paud road, Deccan Gymkahana, Shivajinagar, Bundgarden, Yerawada up to Kalyani Nagar.

Apart from a short underground patch, the corridors would be formed on an elevated surface, the report suggests. The deadline to complete the first route is prescribed as year 2014.

Now it is not spread out in the HK/NYC sort of way, but spread out in a much smaller area, with very bad connectivity. But the cities mentioned by him have multiple highrises that are spread across the city region, and good transportation infrastructure ensures that they are all within easy reach.

Its just like saying - there are two houses - now you take one house down, and build an apartment block on top of the other, and use the remaining space for a park. Which one would be better from an overpopulated city's perspective?
