Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh government on Saturday sent a metro rail survey proposal for the city to the Centre.

Once the Centre approves the proposal, the state government will issue a tender to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), giving the body legal sanction to conduct a feasibility survey in Bhopal.

Speaking to Dainik Bhaskar, SPS Parihar, Secretary, Urban Administration, said the state government has sent the cost assessment proposal of the survey to New Delhi alongwith the agreement (term of reference) with the DMRC.

The Centre is likely to give a green signal to the survey by December 15, he added.

DMRC Managing Director E Sreedharan has earlier said the feasibility survey will be completed within six months.

DMRC will be paid R 1,10,30,000 for the survey with 40 per cent of the cost borne by the Centre.

IMO Bhopal doesnt need a metro. A BRT would suffice

With the landscape of bhopal it will be a tough task to build a metro for the city.

i guess it is too early to open a thread for this as of now. or may be we can add "proposed" in the thread title.

May be MODs can create a "Proposed Transportation Projects" thread and all the proposed metro/other transport projects can go there until there is considerable progress?????

Survey for Bhopal, Indore Metro rail projects soon

Source
The Delhi Metro Railway Corporation (DMRC) will commence a pre-feasibility survey of establishing metro rail projects in Bhopal and Indore this month with a view to strengthening public transport system.

The Madhya Pradesh Government has already made a payment of Rs 55.10 lakh as advance to Delhi Metro Railway Corporation for carrying out the survey.

In this connection, Urban Administration and Development Minister Babulal Gaur had called on DMRC Managing Director E Sridharan and had urged him to start the pre-feasibility survey for metro rail system at Indore and Bhopal.

The survey in both the cities will be completed by October this year. After the survey, the Delhi Metro Railway Corporation will submit a detailed project report (DPR) to the Madhya Pradesh government, which will in turn send it to the Central Government for approval.

If everything remains the same after approval by the Central Government, then the metro rail projects in both the cities will probably be completed in 2012.

It may be mentioned here that a memorandum of agreement has already been signed between the Madhya Pradesh Government and DMRC in the year 2010 for conducting pre-feasibility surveys in Indore and Bhopal and a payment of Rs 55.10 lakh has been made to DMRC in this connection.

The survey will cost Rs 55.10 lakh per city. The rest of money will be paid to DMRC after commencement of the pre-feasibility survey.

NEEDED METRO
This is the time to plan for a Metro in Bhopal, when the city is growing but not fully grown. Else it will be like Bangalore where people will get squeezed on the roads to make way for the metro.

After an analysis, the DMRC officials will do another round of Bhopal and Indore, post which the details of the metro projects will be disclosed.

Bhopal: The central government has asked Madhya Pradesh government to prepare the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for metro rail in Bhopal by the end of July.

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will review the report along with other facts (like number of private and public transport vehicles in the city) and decide whether the capital city of Madhya Pradesh can have metro rail network or not.

According to Urban Administration and Development Department officials, DMRC has asked for details on the number and kind of vehicles used for public transport in the city. Bhopal Municipal Corporation will soon present the data to DMRC. The department officials also said the DMRC will give a final report on the BRT corridor and the network of metro in the city.

Sharma said DMRC will be able to tell after reviewing the DPR whether bringing metro rail network to Bhopal will be economically feasible or not.

Will Bhopal get Metro? The wait ends tomorrow

Bhopal: Managing Director of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation E Sreedharan will hold a meeting with the state government officials on Wednesday to decide the feasibility of Metro rail in the city.

Kamal Nagar, the Officer on Special Duty (Transportation), said that Sreedharan will tour the city on August 3. He will visit the BRTS corridor and later hold a meeting with senior officers. DMRC officials were earlier scheduled to visit the city last month to provide information collected in the pre-feasibility survey.

A contract between the DMRC and the state government was signed in April 2010 to assess the feasibility of Metro rail in Bhopal. It was also decided that DMRC would submit its report in six months. But the issue got delayed because of the Comprehensive Mobilisation Plan (CMP). DMRC, however, later agreed to conduct a survey without the CMP.

Union Minister for Urban Development Kamal Nath has written a letter to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan asking him to prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR) on constructing Metro rail for Bhopal and Indore.

Various issues are expected to be discussed in the meeting, such as the prospective time frame for beginning the construction of Metro, probable rail routes and the procedure to be followed after the preparation of DPR. The prospects of Bhopal getting Metro rail appear quite bright.
