Agreed, but everyone seems hell bent on putting a line to airport first. There are so many 35 million passengers per year airports across the world that have not built a line yet while there are 60 & 80 million airports with airport express lines that carry a paltry 30-40,000 passengers a day which is poor utilization.

But in Bangalore's case, the line will cater to developed areas up to at least Yelahanka since it has stops (though few). Some areas even past Yelahanka will have catchment. So, it won't be pre-mature if the line does get built in 5 years time, as it will most likely take.

Yes, i concur , the only problem is , its taking the precious attention from media & Politicos from core issue of mass commute within the city.

All Saints gets 2 lifelines, Greens keen on 3rd one

Quote:
Highlights
  • European bank’s intervention garners positive result.
  • BMRCL alters plan to save school for differently abled, bulk of church land; but parishioners say the ‘heritage structure’ should be completely spared.

In an effort to put an end to the dispute between the Church members and Namma Metro regarding the acquisition of the All Saints Church land, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has offered two solutions. In both the options, BMRCL has proposed to avoid the demolition of the building housing the schoo l for differently abled children at Vellara junction. However, the Church members are not convinced with both the options and say that the only suitable option seems avoidance of using the church land. However, those protesting for saving the church say that BMRCL should look at the third option of holding a public consultation and taking their suggestions seriously.

In June this year, members of All Saints Church had written to the European Investment Bank (EIB) that is funding the project and to BMRCL to look into the issues regarding the church land. The complaint was later supported by the city based Environment Support Group (ESG) coordinated by Leo Saldanha, an expert in the field of Environmental Law and Policy. As a reply to the complaint, BMRCL and EIB sent an Initial Assessment Report with two possible solutions that would save the demolition of the school for the differently abled and also a few trees, while reducing the land.

Option 1
In this option, the permanent acquisition of land remains at roughly 228 m˛ and the temporary occupation is reduced from 3797 m˛ to 1140 m˛. The number of trees affected is reduced from 41 to 26 and the distance of the works from the church building is increased from 21.8 m to 27.5 m. This option would ensure that the school building would not be destroyed and the access to the All Saints Church (ASC) from Hosur Road would remain intact, while a portion of the greenery in front of the church building and on one side of the gateway would be affected. The access to the school building and the parking space would also remain fully intact.

Option 2
Here, no temporary land is required. Due to the design change required for this option, more structures would need to come to ground level increasing the amount of required permanent acquisition from 228.41 m˛ to 654.59 m˛. The number of trees affected would be reduced from 41 to 16 trees and the distance of the works from the church building would be increased to 27.5 m (same as in option 1). This option would not require the destruction of the school building and keep entirely intact both sides of the gateway from Hosur Road.

Ebenezer Prem Kumar, a long-standing member of the church says that the members are not satisfied with either of the options and want another consideration by the Metro officials. “We had sent a letter to the Metro officials and the EIB as it is the main financier of the project. The Metro has been neglecting the members as the stakeholders and undermining us. We want a public consultation to be held. All the communication has been oral and through meetings. We now want to document the communications between the members and the Metro henceforth.”

— Ebenezer Prem Kumar, a member of the All Saints Church congregation


In its masterplan 2031, Bangalore Development Authority has listed out 45 heritage site of importance. This includes the 150-year-old All Saints Church. The members have been arguing that because the church is a place of ‘cultural heritage’ it needs to be protected. However, BMRCL has argued in its report that the church has not been recognized as ‘national heritage’.

According to the order of the High Court, the tree census has to be completed by the tree committee by September 30, 2020. BMRCL has identified that in all 42 trees will be cut for the Vellara junction station and none of them will be transplanted. For Phase-2 of the Project, in all, a total of 684 trees are being cut out of which 222 trees do not require permission. According to BMRCL, 577 trees have been transplanted and 107 trees are cut. BMRCL has also allotted Rs 63.37 lakhs to BBMP to plant 8000 saplings.

“The tree committee says that all possible options for saving trees must be considered before finally chopping them down,” says Prem Kumar. “We are not convinced with both the options as the land mentioned on paper is actually more on ground. We want a meeting to come out with a third plan that saves both the church land and trees. The original DPR did not have construction inside the Church compound at all,” he adds.

The conflicted Metro line is a part of Reach 6 that spans 22 km with 18 stations and will have a fleet of 96 cars. Previously, the church members had suggested that both Vellara and Langford Road stations be combined into one station. However, Metro had suggested otherwise as both the stations cater to different commuters.

NO DAMAGE
The report also clarifies that there will be no impact on the strength of the church building when the work begins due to drilling, blasting, tunnel boring, etc. “BMRCL is confident that the Metro station can be constructed without causing any damage to the church building. An independent study of the structure of the church building and any required strengthening of the church will be taken up before the work starts,” says the report. BMRCL will also prepare a formal management plan for tree cutting and transplantation following the recommendations of the special tree panel.

POINT-COUNTER POINT
During the meetings, the complainant wanted the station moved south, to the land owned by the Ministry of Defence. BMRCL said it wasn’t possible due to the significant impact of the Langford station and part of the Vellara station on the Ministry’s land.

The complainant referred to Delhi Metro’s Ashram station which is shorter than the new proposed design for Vellara station. BMRCL carefully reviewed all options and said no further reduction of land requirement was possible.

Complainant wanted to combine Vellara and Langford Road stations, but BMRCL said it wasn’t possible since they each cater to different commuters. The complainant wanted a “a series of public disclosures” according to the KTCP Act. However, BMRCL contested it stating the KTCP Act applies to the Metro project.

Five public consultations were held between the September and November 2018, moderated by the IIM-B.

The Complainant had alleged that for the construction of Vellara station, BMRCL had deviated from the DPR. BMRCL said it was following the DPR alignment and taking the option that would not disturb the flow of traffic on Hosur road.

The Complainant said that ASC as a site of cultural heritage would need special protection. BMRCL argued that ASC was not officially recognised as a national heritage site. The complaint had said that ASC land would be used as a “shed for construction equipment and as space to tunnel from” but BMRCL said the land was for construction of the station only.

The complaint said that the community was concerned about their right to pray would be affected but BMRCL said that work would stop during church service.

265 trees in CBD face the axe for Namma Metro underground work

Quote:


A total of 73 trees will be chopped off and nine will be transplanted from Kamaraj Road in CBD.

With Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) taking up work on the Dairy Circle-Pottery Town underground section, 265 trees in and around central business district are set to be cut while 57 will be relocated.

As per the BMRCL newsletter released on Tuesday, 324 trees stand along the Dairy Circle-Pottery Town (Red Line) corridor. The corporation’s records show a majority of those slated to be chopped lie between MG Road and Kamaraj Road. Of these 84 trees, 73 will be cut and nine transplanted from Kamaraj Road.
Similarly, 39 of the 57 trees located at the technical training centre for the deaf near Bamboo Bazaar will be cut and another 18 transplanted for Cantonment Metro station. For the station at Vellara Junction, 42 trees are to be cut, including 35 on Rashtriya Military School compound and seven at the junction. At Pottery Town station, 21 trees will be felled and three will be translocated. Similarly, BMRCL will cut nine of 13 trees at Shivajinagar and transplant four. At Dairy Circle, BMRCL has identified 81 trees for cutting and 23 for relocation. Of the 81, 31 are on the west side of the pavement on Bannerghatta Main Road, 30 at Karmikara Bhavana and Dharmaram College and 20 near Jayanagar fire station.

A BMRCL official said they have filed an application with the tree officer to clear these trees for Line 6 underground stations and ramps.

684 trees felled, transplanted for Phase 2 projects: BMRCL
Six hundred and eighty-four trees have been cut/ transplanted for Phase 2, of which 222 come under the schedule B category, which doesn't require permission for felling. A total of 577 trees have been transplanted and 107 cut so far,” said a BMRCL official. “On behalf of the corporation, BBMP in coordination with the forest department has planted 8,000 saplings. For this, BMRCL has deposited Rs 63.4 lakh with the Palike. As per high court directions, the government formed the tree expert committee on August 1 to look into felling, transplantation and replantation as compensation under the Tree Preservation Act 1976 for trees affected by the Metro project,” the official added.

Forest land yet to be acquired for depots
A proposal on diversion of 18.1 hectares of Kadugodi plantation, for the Kadugodi depot, has been submitted to regional office, Union ministry of environment and forests. “The request for stage-II clearance submitted by the state has been returned on the grounds that compensatory afforestation land has to be declared as reserved forest/protected forest. The government has directed the forest department to provide working permission,” said a BMRCL statement. For Anjanapura depot, stage-I approval for diversion of 0.7 hectares of forest land in UM Kaval has been communicated.

Tunnelling for Phase 2 underground section to begin in February

Quote:

Metro work at Shivajinagar

Much delayed, the city’s longest underground Metro corridor — between Dairy Circle and Nagawara (14km-Phase 2) — is finally on track. Come February, giant tunnel-boring machines (TBMs) will drill and cut through Bengaluru’s underbelly between Vellara Junction and Pottery Town (5.5km).

Last February, Larsen & Toubro received bids for the underground section from Vellara Junction to Shivajinagar (2.7km) and Shivajinagar to Pottery Town (2.8km). The corridor on Red Line will have stations at Vellara Junction, MG Road, Shivajinagar, Cantonment and Pottery Town.

Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) said tunnelling will begin in February 2020. “TBMs will arrive in the city by December 2019. Four TBMs will be deployed for these two packages,” said a BMRCL official.

He denied that tunnelling was being delayed due to land acquisition issues. “Tunnel shafts are being created at Shivajinagar and Cantonment stations, for which work is under way,” he said. BMRCL has started digging vertical shafts, which will be used to lower the machines. Work on both shafts will be completed before the TBMs arrive.

Officials said the contractor is procuring the TBMs from China Railway Construction Heavy Industry Corporation Limited (CRCHI). However, BMRCL is yet to finalise the machines’ names.

“These TBMs will tunnel 2.5-5 metres per day, depending on the geographical condition they encounter. They are of a higher capacity as compared to the TBMs used in Phase 1. Detailed soil investigation has been carried out at smaller intervals for Phase 2,” said a BMRCL official.

The corporation has been conducting soil tests along the section for the past few months. This phase of Metro tunnelling is likely to be more challenging as the TBMs will pass through densely populated areas and there are concerns regarding safety of old buildings in areas like Shivajinagar.

BMRCL has set 2024 as the deadline for commissioning of the underground section. It took about five years to complete the 10km tunnelling work during Phase I and missed multiple deadlines.

Sources said ITD Cementation India Ltd has emerged as the lowest bidder for construction of the 4.6km underground section with four stations: Tannery Road, Venkateshpura, Arabic College and Nagawara. Similarly, Afcons Infrastructure emerged as the lowest bidder for the 3.7km underground section with three stations: Dairy Circle, MICO Industries and Langford Town.

Nine TBMs for entire corridor
BMRCL said nine TBMs will be deployed along the 14-km underground section between Dairy Circle and Nagawara. In addition to Shivajinagar and Cantonment stations, shaft locations are being proposed at Venkateshpura and Dairy Circle.

“However, the other two locations are supposed to be decided by the contractor depending on the tunnelling sequence,” said a BMRCL official. “The contract period for civil underground packages is 42 months. The remaining two underground packages: Dairy Circle-Vellara Junction and Tannery Road-Nagawara will be awarded in November,” he added.

BMRCL awards contracts for last two packages of underground stretch

Officials claim to have ‘saved’ ₹2,000 crore by floating tender in a phased manner

Quote:
After a long delay and several hurdles, including scrapping a tender, the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has finally awarded the contract for the two remaining packages of underground works from Swagath Road Cross to Nagawara under Phase II of Namma Metro.

In a release issued on Thursday, the BMRCL stated that AFCONS Infrastructure Limited, Mumbai will carry out tunnel work and construct stations between Swagath Road and Vellara junction. This stretch has a length of 3.655 km, including 2.68 km of tunnel. The cost of the project is estimated at ₹1,526.33 crore.

Three underground stations will come up in this package at Dairy Circle, Mico Industries and Langford Town.

The tender for the other underground stretch from Tannery Road to Nagawara has been awarded to ITD Cementation India Limited, Kolkata. This stretch has a total length of 4.591 km, including a tunnel network of 3.12 km. The cost is ₹1,771.25 crore.

The contractor will also construct four underground stations at Tannery Road, Venkateshpura, Arabic College and Nagawara.

“By issuing letter of acceptance, the BMRCL has awarded the contract for executing the underground work on the entire stretch of 14 km from Swagath Road to Nagawara. The land acquisition for the project is nearing completion and contractors will take up physical works. Excavation for the shaft will take place in two months,” said B.L. Yeshwanth Chavan, Chief PRO, BMRCL.

In May, L&T had bagged the contract to execute underground work for two packages (2 and 3) from Vellara junction to Shivajinagar (2.7 km) and from Shivajinagar to Pottery Town (2.8 km). The BMRCL is to spend ₹1,329 crore and ₹1,299 crore for packages 2 and 3, respectively.

Long delay

In March 2018, the BMRCL had scrapped the tender for the underground stretch saying the bidders had quoted exorbitant prices. It had estimated the project cost at ₹5,047 crore, but bidders quoted ₹8,553 crore. To bring down the cost, the BMRCL proposed to cut down the length of the tunnel on either end of the alignment, but later found out that it was not a feasible option. Subsequently, the BMRCL floated the tender in a phased manner.

Mr. Chavan claimed that BMRCL has managed to 'save' ₹2,000 crore by floating tenders in a phased manner.

Only 8 properties need to be acquired for Metro Phase 2
DHNS, Bengaluru, NOV 08 2019

Quote:


With more than 90% of the land acquisition work completed for the Phase 2 lines, BMRCL is looking to clear the hurdles for taking over eight properties, including the land near the All Saints Church and the NICE property near Electronics City.

BMRCL on Thursday released details of the number of properties acquired as against the properties needed for the 72-km metro line.

Official data
The data showed that 93.36% of the 2,850 properties needed for the project has already been acquired by the land acquisition officers, with only 189 properties to go.
A majority of the pending acquisition is for the Reach 6 line between Gottigere and Nagawara, where officials need to acquire 152 properties for the elevated stretch (Gottigere-Swagath Road Cross) and 13 properties for the Diary Circle-Nagawara underground stretch.

While the BMRCL newsletter stated that oicials have begun the process for the permanent acquisition of the 3,797.27 sqm All Saints Church land, an official said that the corporation has decided to end the issue amicably by making alternative offers to the church authorities.

Officials said there are five property acquisitions for the Reach 6 line, which will require time.

“About 350 properties acquired by KIADB are yet to be handed over to BMRCL due to last-minute procedures. The church land was originally sought on a temporary basis. After opposition from some members of the church, we were forced to move for permanent acquisition to avoid delay. We have tried to reduce the size of the land needed on a temporary basis and are waiting for a reply from the authorities,” an official said.

Forest dept clearance
The forest department has given Stage 1 clearance for acquisition of 44.75 acres in the Kadugodi plantation area and 1.75 acres in the UM Kaval forest for the Anjanapura line depot.

265 trees to be cut
BMRCL has filed an application with the BBMP tree officer, seeking clearance to cut 184 trees for the Reach 6 line. The corporation has transplanted 34 trees.

The MG Road-Kamaraj Road stretch will lose 73 trees, followed by 57 trees at the Deaf Training Centre and 35 trees at the Rashtriya Military School, among others, once the corporation gets a green signal from the authorities.

“As per the high court order, the tree committee will take a call on the issue. We
have requested for clearance at the earliest to expedite the project,” an official added.

4 years for underground later 2 years to complete rest of civil works, 2026 is when we see red line complete which was approved around 2014-2015, hope this opens eye for administration to work on important lines in CBD ASAP.

Banashankari to get FOB linking Metro, bus stations in 6 months

Quote:


Commuting between bus and Metro stations at Banashankari is likely to be hassle-free soon. To convert the area into an integrated mobility hub, foot overbridge (FOB) connecting the two stations will be ready in six months.

In the absence of a Unified Metropolitan Transportation Authority (UMTA), the FOB project is being executed by three agencies: BMRCL, BBMP and BMTC.

Bengaluru South MP Tejasvi Surya who pushed for a mobility hub at Banashankari, however, suggested one of the agencies take up the project’s ownership to avoid inefficiency and delay due to lack of coordination. Banashankari Metro Station on the Green Line is operational since June 2017. The FOB was delayed due to poor coordination between civic agencies.

Surya along with revenue minister and Padmanabhanagar MLA R Ashoka, BMTC chairman Nandiesha Reddy, Bengaluru Smart City Corporation MD Hephsiba Rani Korlapati, BMRCL executive director Kalpana Kataria and officials from BBMP and police inspected the place.
“Banashankari is one of the most important nodal points of Bengaluru, connecting JP Nagar and Kanakapura Road. Around 50,000 commuters use Banashankari Bus Stand and the Metro station cater to around 25,000 every,day,” said Surya.

“Thousands of them painstakingly move between the bus stand and Metro station, crossing roads amid heavy traffic. Many of these are women, children and senior citizens. The need of the hour is an integrated mobility hub so that people can commute seamlessly. This will encourage citizens to switch to public transport, reducing traffic congestion,” added the MP. He instructed the officials to make the facility friendly for differently abled passengers.

Ashoka faces flak for not being frisked
Revenue minister and Padmanabhanagar MLA R Ashoka earned flak after a video of him entering Banashankari Metro Station without being frisked went viral. Though Surya and Reddy were checked by a security guard, Ashoka walked in casually.
