Capital may think about these options

Sandeep Yadav

25 Feb 12

Metro tracks cannot be built in every nook and corner of the city owing to variety of reasons

Let us accept it. Metro tracks cannot be built in every nook and corner of the city owing to a variety of reasons – congested localities and Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains (Amendment and Validation) Act, 2010, just to names two.

As per the Act, new construction is prohibited within 100 metres of a protected monument and there are restrictions on construction within 100 to 300 metres. Such restrictions are bound to create a problem in the city strewn with hundreds of protected monuments as was evident in November 2011 when the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) issued a stop-work notice to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation on the proposed Central Secretariat-Kashmere Gate section at Janpath.

Monorail is one solution
So what are the options? Experts believe that rail-based transport systems like monorail and Light Rail Transit System in Delhi should be the available options. In fact, the Delhi Cabinet last month gave in-principle approval for the monorail connectivity between Shastri Park Metro Station and Trilokpuri, via Laxmi Nagar in east Delhi.

“Fast and pollution-free elevated intercity new mode of transport Mono Rail has also been recommended as a mass transit in Master Plan Delhi (MPD) 2021. Besides having less noise as compared to other systems, it will also be aesthetically attractive,” Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had announced. Monorail will be a realty in Delhi by 2017, she added.

Proposed route
According to a government official, it has been decided that the route will start from Shastri Park Metro Station passing through Yamuna Pushta Road, Rajaram Kohli Marg, Geeta Colony, Patparganj Road, Nirman Vihar Metro Station at Vikas Marg, Ganesh Nagar, New Patparganj Road, Sanjay Lake to terminate parallel with proposed Trilokpuri Metro Station.

Airport Express halts, phase III takes off

Dec 31, 2012, 01.54 AM IST

For Delhiites, the year 2012 brought the possibility of a wider public transport network closer to reality with phase III of Delhi Metro getting off the ground. The third phase, which will cover an additional 108km of Delhi, will introduce two new corridors – Mukundpur to Shiv Vihar and Janakpuri (West) to Botanical Garden – besides extending the Central Secretariat line to Kashmere Gate.

The year saw the closure of Delhi's celebrated Airport Metro Express. Launched in February 2011, the line closed amid safety concerns due to construction failures. The high-speed line, which connected the airport to the heart of the city, was discontinued after structural defects were found in the bearings, forcing trains to run at a low speed.

The project, which – being the first PPP project – had been under intense scrutiny, was mired in controversy with DMRC and concessionaire Reliance Infrastructure blaming each other. On July 8, the line was shut for repairs.

Mid-way through the repair, the concessionaire threatened to pull out, with the matter going to arbitration. The line, awaiting clearance from the commissioner of Metro railway safety, looks unlikely to resume operations soon.

Commuters still had reason to cheer after Delhi Metro announced augmentation of its last-mile connectivity with addition of almost 600 feeder buses into its network. However, the project has been delayed with DMRC yet to decide a schedule for the launch. The service, which may add to the Metro's ridership, has been shuttling between the vendor and DMRC. While Delhi Metro claims the vendor has been chosen, the vendor says vehicles are not available as per specifications.

Atul Mathur, Hindustan Times
New Delhi, May 11, 2011

focus this time is going to be on west Delhi. According to public works department officials, of the 20-odd new roads and flyovers the department has planned, at least 14 are slated to come up on traffic choke points in west Delhi. These projects are on various stages of planning. Some of them have been cleared by the technical body. Most of them are expected to be ready by 2015.

Chat with Metro Man: E Sreedharan, MD-DMRCL

'A PPP model for a metro has never succeeded anywhere in the world'

By The Financial Express, 21/11/2010

'A PPP model for a metro has never succeeded anywhere in the world'

E Sreedharan, Managing Director of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, is the man credited with changing the way Delhi travels. In this Idea Exchange moderated by Executive Editor Unni Rajen Shanker, Sreedharan speaks of how the Metro kept its deadlines and his earlier assignment with Konkan Railways

Unni Rajen Shanker: When you look back at your stint with the Konkan Railways project and now the Delhi Metro, which was a tougher assignment and why?

The tougher and more challenging is Delhi Metro. With Konkan Railways, the main challenge was the length of the line: it passes through four states, a lot of reserved forest land and the most unfriendly, undulating terrain. The other challenge was raising funds. The government had given us one-third of the cost of the project, two-thirds had to be raised from the open market. At that time, the condition of the capital market was very poor, and raising money was very difficult. We could not raise money within the country and had to go to countries such as England, Japan and Korea to raise funds.

For Delhi Metro, money was not a problem. The problem was that it is the capital; whatever we do is directly under the gaze of the people in power?President, Prime Minister, Lt Governor, Chief Minister?everybody is aware of what we do. People here are educated, they are exposed to what other cities, countries have achieved. So expectations are very high. Also, we have to work with the least inconvenience or disturbance to the public. The technology for the Metro is highly complex. It is four times more complicated than railway technology. And tight targets had to be met; in the second phase, the target was the Commonwealth Games.
