Canal Corridor



Background

Following the Successful rollout of BRTS in Ahmedabad, Surat is soon set to implement the Rs 78 Crore 1st Phase of its own System that aims to revitalise public transport in the Diamond City.




Surat BRTS Project to be Kicked off on Sardar Patel Jayanti (31st Oct)

Quote:
Ambitious Surat Bus Rapid Transit System(BRTS) project will be kicked off by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on 31st October - Sardar Patel Jayanti. Modi will perform groundbreaking of Rs.78 crore first phase of the project.

The Surat Municipal Corporation(SMC) had recently approved Rs. 228 crore Bus Rapid Transit System(BRTS) project. Cost wise, this is be the biggest project approved by the SMC in its history.

A 19 km long 200 meter wide BRTS lane will come up on Dumas resort-Udhna-Magdalla-Vir Narmad university-Citylight Anuvrat gate route. The BRTS lane would also be constructed on both sides of the Citylight canal(60 ft road on each side)-Khatodara-Kharvarnagar-Puna old octroi post-Puna-Sumada-Sarthana Savji Korat bridge rout.

Under the project, a canal will be restructured and proper lining would be done. The project also includes construction of several fly-over bridges, cc road, paver blocks, street lights, a track for bus, vehicles track, gardening, picnic points, shopping mall, carriage way, cycle track, light vehicle track, activity areas, parking space, bus-stands and service road.


Below are some slides taken from a Surat Municipal Corporation pdf presentation comprehensively detailing the 20 year, 3 phase plan for the Surat BRTS project:

BRTS Network



BRTS Phasing



Corridor 1



Corridor 2



Phase 1 Route Structure



Canal Rd Design



Canal Rd Design 2



Interchange Location



Flyover Integration



Intersection Treatment



45m Cross Section



60m Cross Section



Access to Bus Stops



Subway Design



Subway Design 2



Activity Areas



Utilities




Since the Presentation was made, it would appear that the Route labelled as Corridor 2 of Phase 1 on these slides, will actually be the first Route to be built.

Simply amazing. I am speechless. Never imagined something so well planned out would ever be implemented in India (I hope I'm not speaking too soon).

Civic Body to Develop BRTS as a Brand in Surat

Quote:
Surat: The BRTS, one of the most ambitious projects of the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC), will soon now have a brand name, logo and color code as identification. Civic authorities have decided that they will spread awareness among people about the project.

The SMC will also complete tendering process of other important parts of the project till April -May.

To make the Rs500 crore BRTS (Bus Rapid Transit System) project more people friendly, the SMC has decided to create a separate brand for it, having a logo and color code. The civic authorities have decided that, the logo will be placed wherever the work for BRTS will be in progress.

To finalise the logo and other things, a meeting between CEPT, SMC and UMTS officials was held recently, where authorities were able to achieve success on the issue.

Besides this, the SMC has also decided to wrap up the tender processing activity for other components of the projects - excluding procuring of buses and preparing routes.

This includes passenger and bus information system and automatic ticketing machines. Civic authorities are planning to complete this work till April-May 2010. The cost of tenders is estimated to be around Rs40 crore. This was decided as work for preparing routes and flyovers have begun and civic authorities do not want to get delayed for the project.

"The BRTS project is for the people and to make them aware a separate logo and color code is necessary. We will also give a separate name to the project to create its identity," municipal commissioner S Aparna, said. There will be 60 bus stops in all developed in both routes.

"We have finalized the design and a sample bus stop will be prepared and review of will be taken from the experts, to make any changes if needed," Aparna added.

I think it will start operating by the 2011 because when i was in india (a week before) they were digging the stretch of udhna( in the city) to navsari...they are cutting trees of udhna navsari stretch so they can expand the road to 4 lanes ( which is 2 lanes rite now).. so the work is in progress!!!

Cheers for the update!

Hope u had a good trip!!!

@AK901

The 2 Lanes either side of the canal is a mistake by whoever did the graphics.

The schematics of the Canal Road stretch (pg 39 on the presentation) show only one lane either side of the Canal.

Surat BRTS mentioned in this article

Quote:
In another major development, a 7.7 km stretch of road under Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) project at a cost of Rs 71.63 crore has also been proposed for approval.

BRTS is another much awaited dream project of SMC. Of the total cost of Rs 469 crore, this year SMC plans to spend about Rs 190 crore in financial year 2010-11.

Sources said to develop the canal corridor, the work will be undertaken in two segments. In the first segment, 8.7 km from Dumas resort to Kharwarnagar junction.The approval has already been given for this segment, which will cost Rs 105 crore. The approvals for the second segment of Kharwarnagar to Simada junction of 7.7 km stretch is being sought. The cost for this segment is estimated at Rs 71.63 crore. Meanwhile, the third and the shortest segment will be from Simada junction to Sarthana at a cost of Rs 35.67 crore. This segment will be 3.3 km long.

"This cost will cover development and construction of CC road, tar road, bus lane, carriage way, cycle track, activity area on both the sides, service, utility and canal lining and development," Dalal said.
A few days later, it appears as though one of the other "segments" mentioned there has now had a contract signed for it as well. Meaning that only the final 3.3km segment from Simada to Sarthana is left in terms of Phase I, as this contract has been awarded for Udhna - Simada, rather than just Kharwarnagar - Simada

Construction firm wins Surat BRTS contract

Quote:
The Cube Ashoka Company has been awarded the contract to develop the BRTS corridor between Udhna and Simada in Surat. This has come after the ruling party leaders in the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) rejected Municipal Commissioner S Aparna’s proposition of awarding the tender to Gujarat Construction Company (GCC), said sources.

For the said project, bids had been opened by SMC earlier. Over 10 parties showed their interest and submitted their bids to SMC. Proper analyses were done in terms of financial capability and technical valuation before processing them. Municipal Commissioner S Aparna had proposed to the ruling party leaders that the tenders submitted by GCC should be accepted.

When the ruling party discussed the issue in the standing committee, they found that GCC’s quoted amount of Rs 71 crore was the lowest. But Cube Ashoka edged it out in the parameters of financial valuation and technical capability.

On Thursday, the standing committee cleared Cube Ashoka Company for the project. Standing Committee Chairman Mukesh Dalal said: “The municipal commissioner had proposed that GCC be awarded the contract, but it does not fit into our scheme of things and we have found another more competent firm. It is normal procedure and the Standing Committee is empowered to award such contracts. We have done the right thing.”
Good to see them choosing expertise and capability rather than even if it is more expensive.

FWIW, According to Cube Constructions website:

"We have started Our new Road Project work for Bus Rapid Transit System at Surat-Gujarat."
