PMC set to begin work on Phase II of BRTS lanes in the next fortnight. The corridors will cut through extremely busy F C, J M and Aundh roads

With the first phase of the Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS), that ran on the outer fringes, nearing completion, officials at the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) are rolling up their sleeves to take up work on Jangli Maharaj (J M), Fergusson College (F C) and Aundh roads.

In keeping with tradition, the blueprint shows routes cutting right through the middle of these thoroughfares making space for the system’s dedicated lanes. Work is expected to start in a fortnight.




A collective 7-km stretch is to be dug on the three roads, with 2 km lengths each on FC and J M roads, while it will run for 3 km on Aundh Road. While the two parallel running roads will host single one-way lanes with a width of 3.5 metres, the two-way lane on University Road will take up 7 metres.

“The work order has been issued, with an approximate budget of Rs 12 crore. Last month, we did a survey of these three roads and made markings for the proposed BRTS corridor lanes,” informed Vijay Shinde, executive engineer at PMC who is coordinating the BRTS project.



There was some confusion for a while with Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML) which plies the BRTS services, earlier insisting on a two-lane corridor on J M Road. However, that issue has been sorted and now a final meeting remains to freeze the work schedule.

PMPML traffic manager Sunil Gavali elaborated, “We had demanded a two-way BRTS lane on J M Road itself, as we thought it would be beneficial for commuters, who hardly take buses from F C Road, so we wanted two-way BRTS corridors on J M Road.”

The J M Road corridor will start at S G Barve Chowk till the end of Garware bridge, while on F C Road, the corridor will start from the same bridge and go to the end of the road where it meets University Road.

The Aundh Road stretch will run between Pune University Chowk and the Rajiv Gandhi Bridge. Given the traffic flow on these roads, there has been some dithering about starting work on them.


A collective 7-km stretch is to be dug
on the three roads “We kept the initial phase to the outskirts where the roads are wider and traffic thinner to enable us to build and showcase good infrastructure,” Shinde explained.

“We are hoping the positive experience of the BRTS in these segments will yield goodwill and make it easy for us to weave through the next phases,” he added.

Clearly there is a lot to fret, given the heavy traffic on these roads, where cutting off even 3.5 metres of 30 metres on J M Road or 24 metres on F C Road, can turn into choke points.

“We will contain our work area to just the 3.5 metres that the lanes are to take up, by moving forward in a phased manner, even for piling the overburden generated by the digging and parking our equipment,” Shinde tried to assure.

He is also hoping to work fast, given the deadline for completing work on all four routes of BRTS by the close of the current calendar year.

The total 68-km BRTS will run between Warje and Kharadi for 22 km, Kothrud depot to Vishrantwadi for 17 km, Dhayari to Hadapsar Gadital taking up another 17 km and Kalewadi Phata to Katraj.

Only, the deadline seems extremely ambitious, given that the first phase of construction of just three patches (Sangamwadi Road, Alandi Road and Nagar Road —collectively 16 km) of the first route will take up to July-end (read 11 months) and the second phase involving another three routes (this time running through heavy traffic) of the same route is yet to begin.

“Now, we will be speeding up our work and start on all four routes simultaneously,” Shinde argued. “We will try to finish as much as possible by the year-end, but if not done, we will have to ask for an extension,” he also added.

Railway Board approves third track on Pune-Lonavla route

http://www.sakaaltimes.com/NewsDetai...-Lonavla route

This thing was badly needed. Infact tracks should have been quadrapled by now.
But going by IR speed we need to be sure when will the funds get allocated when will work start. It might just take 7-8 more years when the work is not even 1 year if done proparly with speed and have ROW.

So it seems that the new guy in charge of PMPML is doing a good job. He's managed to get grounded buses back in action.

Two more bus rapid transit routes between Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad

Quote:
PIMPRI-CHINCHWAD: The Pune Municipal Corporation will construct two bus corridors - from Harris bridge at Bopodi to Sancheti junction, and from Rajiv Gandhi bridge (Aundh) to Simla office at Shivajinagar. This is a part of the Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) expansion plan. The two corridors will link the dedicated bus lanes in Pimpri Chinchwad.

While the Nigdi-Dapodi BRTS corridor is expected to open in a few months, bus service on the Kiwale-Sangvi corridor is already functional. The dedicated corridors will provide seamless connectivity between Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad, said the civic administration.

Civic officials said the Aundh corridor will be 6.5km long, while the Mumbai-Pune highway corridor will run for 5.7km. The Aundh corridor connects important locations such as Aundh Gaon, Ganeshkhind, Kasturba Vasahat, Pune University, and the Shivaji Nagar MSRTC bus station.

The second Mumbai-Pune highway corridor connects Shoppers Stop, Khadki railway station, Range Hill. A 3.5km section of this corridor passes through the Khadki cantonment limits.

The work is expected to be completed in 36 months, and PMC has invited bids for the same. The Rainbow BRTS, managed by the Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Ltd (PMPML), is already operational in two corridors - Sangamwadi-Vishrantwadi, and the Nagar road route.

A few years ago, the urban development department had convened a high-level meeting in New Delhi to discuss "implementation of high-quality BRTS in Pune metropolitan region", and to resolve all operational and infrastructure design issues. Since the highway stretch near Khadki railway station is narrow, an elevated road was proposed.

PMC says Pune has one of the most ambitious BRTS development plans in India, and plans to establish more than 100km of BRTS.

PMC is also set to start work on a BRTS corridor between Patil Estate (Shivajinagar) and Sangamwadi.

Pune-Mumbai highway BRTS launch slated for September

Quote:
Pimpri Chinchwad: The Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) may have skipped several deadlines to launch the bus rapid transit service (BRTS) on Pune-Mumbai highway but municipal commissioner Shravan Hardikar has now set a September target.

PCMC had widened the 12km-long Pune-Mumbai highway for the BRTS route. It has been trying to start the bus service on the highway for the past five years. There are around half a dozen merge-ins and -outs on both sides of the express corridor, which may cause accidents and therefore social activists as well as certain corporators have opposed the launch. An activist has also filed a public interest litigation in Bombay High Court to prevent PCMC from starting the service without undertaking appropriate safety measures.

Three months ago, the civic body had decided to allow two-wheelers to ply on the BRTS lanes to reduce traffic congestion on the route. However, now four-wheelers are often seen on the dedicated lanes as steel barriers have been damaged.

Speaking to TOI, the BRTS Cell spokesperson Vijay Bhojane said, "PCMC has allotted the work order to renovate its old bus stations to a private contractor on build-operate-transfer basis in lieu of advertising rights for five years. The civic body will take all safeguards to prevent any accidents. We will inform the high court after completing such measures."
