Karnataka HC wants to know whether metro will shift track

Quote:
The Karnataka high court on Tuesday sought to know from the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) on whether the Namma Metro route could pass through the Basavanagudi flyover at the Vani Vilas Road curve, instead of the current proposal which calls acquiring a piece of heritage property.

Justice Ram Mohan Reddy directed the BMRCL counsel to seek instructions from the BMRCL in this regard while hearing a petition filed by Malini Sri Ram challenging the move to acquire her property to make way for the Namma Metro on the Vani Vilas Road curve.

The land acquisition has been stayed until further orders.

Justice Reddy adjourned the matter to July 19 when the BMRCL counsel has been told to submit his response to the court’s route change proposal.

Malini Sri Ram contended that BMRCL had proposed to acquire 1,215 square metres of her property at the Vani Vilas Road curve.

She pointed out that the entire property was a heritage residence and went by the name of Veda Vilas. The petitioner said that the acquisition would rob her of all her property.

The petitioner also contended that Namma Metro could have taken the straight KR Road route instead of the proposed digression at Vani Vilas Road curve.

The preliminary notification regarding acquiring the property was issued to the petitioner in 2006.

The final notification was issued two years later.

The petitioner also submitted that there was disparity in the allocation of compensation as her neighbour had received Rs48,800 per square metre as compensation, while she had received a compensation of just Rs8,000 per square metre

Feel Namma Metro coach from today

Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa will unveil the mock-up of the Namma Metro coach at M G Road on Friday.



Sources in the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL) said the replica, stationed on a concrete platform near Anil Kumble Circle, would finally be unveiled.

“We have completed the construction of all weather roof for the model train and also barricades around the structure. Landscaping around the train has also been done to give the look of a park. The public can view the train, get a feel and write their feedback,” said an official.

A consortium led by PSU major Bharat Earth Movers Limited (BEML) and Japanese conglomerate, the Mitsubishi Group, and Hyundai Rotem, a Korean manufacturer of rolling stock have won the bid to design and manufacture a total of 150 metro train coaches for the Bangalore Metro project at an estimated cost of Rs 1,672.50 crore.

While Mitsubishi would supply the traction for the coaches, Rotem would supply components and BEML would integrate, test and commission the coaches.

The first train set of three cars/coaches is expected to be shipped from South Korea in October 2010 and the test/trial run is expected to be held in November 2010 on Reach 1 (Byappanahalli to Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium).

It's not pink, it's purple. Green and Purple Lines are the color schemes of the first phase.

Hi Nandan,

The first design looks similar to Swift's/Tata's Cars... Somehow i don't like to view curved headlights.

W.r.t Second design, may be drivers visibility might be poor. Hence NM might choosen pleasant and simple design,

I too think that the livery can be better - this looks tacky, but the coach quality looks good. I hope I can make it in time to see it.

I just want it to look little aerodynamic. In the first pic, i like the paintjob, it gives a seamless feel of the glass. I really dont care how the headlights are.

Yep! Same here! I hope they use black glass instead of fully transparent ones.

Btw..I don't think they'll make any major changes to the design as the design was finalized way back in February and would already in initial stages of mass production.

Can we please stop whining! The design is good and let's hope that interiors will be too.
