Mar 22 2017 (20:33)   Hyderabad Metro rail: Metro steps jam Rasoolpura; it's only temporary, says govt

HYDERABAD: The Metro Rail work in the city has sprung up many such 'odd' constructions across Hyderabad that have thrown traffic out of gear. With staircases and stations standing bang in the middle of the road, at some places, the carriageway of arterial stretches have shrunk drastically. The scene is particularly chaotic during peak hours when commuters complain of being held up in serpentine traffic snarls for hours together. "Negotiating the Begumpet area, in particular, has become a struggle. At times it takes up to 45 minutes to one hour to just get past this stretch," said S Santoshi, a resident of Trimulgherry. Though compassionate about the concerns of residents, K T Rama Rao, state minister for municipal administration and urban development, assures that the problem is only temporary. "Projects like Metro Rail, during their construction period, do create traffic snarls but people should understand that it is for the betterment...

of the system," he said.

Mar 21 2017 (21:00)   NIT submits report on Metro path FSI hike

Entry# 2205745   News Entry# 297082         Tags   Past Edits
NAGPUR: The proposal to increase floor space index (FSI) along the Metro Rail corridor has finally moved a step forward. Urban Mass Transport Company (UMTC), the consultant appointed by Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) to do impact assessment, has submitted its interim report, which has been forwarded to state urban development department (UDD). The government has, however, asked the consultant to do some calculations again.The government plans to increase FSI to maximum 4 upto a distance of 500 metres on both sides of Metro corridor. NIT and Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) will charge a premium for consuming this extra FSI.Half the premium will go to Mahametro, the agency executing Nagpur Metro Rail project. The premium will help Mahametro pay a part of its foreign loan.NIT chairman Dipak Mhaisekar told TOI the consultant had estimated that the extra population that would live on both sides of the Metro corridor due to increased FSI...

would be 3.5 lakh. "This is in addition to the natural growth of population in this area," he said.According to the consultant's estimate, Rs 60 crore would be needed to strengthen the civic infrastructure in the area for meeting the needs of the 3.5 lakh extra residents. "The government feels this amount is on the lower side. Moreover, the tenement density calculations are also not correct. So we have asked them to make necessary corrections," the NIT chief said adding that while the consultant had mentioned the need for parking spaces and gardens in the area, it had not calculated the cost of these amenities.
It will be some weeks before the Metro corridor area gets extra FSI. The consultant will submit the final report to NIT, which will forward it to UDD. If the UDD does not find any lacunae, it will issue a gazette notification for amending the development control rules (DCR) of Nagpur.
The proposal to increase FSI along the Metro corridor was announced in May 2015 by chief minister Devendra Fadnavis. It was in October 2016 that the government realized that an impact assessment was needed. NIT was accordingly instructed to appoint a consultant for the job.

मुंबई। मुंबई में लोकमान्य तिलक टर्मिनस पर शनिवार को आयोजित एक समारोह में रेलमंत्री सुरेश प्रभु ने पूरी तरह स्वदेश निर्मित लोकल ट्रेन "मेधा" को रिमोट कंट्रोल के जरिये हरी झंडी दिखाई। 43.23 करोड़ रुपये की लागत से बनी यह ट्रेन मुंबई के पश्चिम रेलमार्ग पर चलेगी। पहली ट्रेन ने शनिवार को दादर से बोरीवली और फिर बोरीवली से चर्चगेट का चक्कर पूरा किया।
अब तक मुंबई सहित देश के दूसरे शहरों में चलने वाली लोकल ट्रेनों के कोच तो भारत में बनते थे, लेकिन उनमें इलेक्ट्रिक एवं अन्य तकनीकी काम विदेशी सीमेंस एवं बाम्बार्डियर कंपनियों द्वारा किए जाते थे। प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी की "मेक इन इंडिया" पहल के तहत मेधा ट्रेन के कोच तो चेन्नाई स्थित इंटीग्रल कोच फैक्ट्री (आइसीएफ) में

तैयार किए गए हैं जबकि इलेक्ट्रिकल एवं अन्य तकनीकी काम पहली बार हैदराबाद के मेधा सर्वो ड्राइव्स फर्म ने किए हैं।
इससे ट्रेन की कुल कीमत में करीब एक करोड़ रुपये की कमी आई है। विदेशी बॉम्बार्डियर कंपनी द्वारा तैयार 12 कोच वाली ट्रेन की कीमत जहां 44.36 करोड़ रुपये होती थी, वहीं आइसीएफ एवं मेधा सर्वो ड्राइव्स फर्म के संयुक्त प्रयास से तैयार यह ट्रेन 43.23 करोड़ रुपये में ही तैयार हो गई है। पश्चिम रेलवे ने फिलहाल 12 कोच वाली दो ट्रेनें तैयार करवाई हैं। इस प्रकार के और अधिक कोचों के ऑर्डर देने पर इनकी कीमत और कम हो सकती है।
ट्रेन में खास
"मेधा" में 1,168 सीटें हैं और कुल 6,000 से अधिक यात्री इसमें यात्रा कर सकते हैं। ट्रेन की अधिकतम रफ्तार 110 किलोमीटर प्रति घंटा होगी। ट्रेन में रीजनरेटेड ब्रेकिंग सिस्टम का उपयोग किया गया है। जिसके उपयोग से 30 से 35 फीसद बिजली पैदा होकर ओवरहेड वायर्स में जाएगी और इतनी बिजली की बचत होगी।
ट्रेन में रूफ माउंटेड फोर्स्ड वेंटीलेशन व्यवस्था होने के कारण ट्रेन की कूलिंग क्षमता 16,000 घन क्यूबिक मीटर प्रति घंटा है। औपचारिक शुरुआत से पहले इस ट्रेन का कई महीनों तक ट्रायल किया गया। बता दें कि मुंबई की लोकल ट्रेनों में प्रतिदिन 35 लाख यात्री सफर करते हैं।

In USA the length of a freight trains is I guess four time that of Indian freight trains and their carrying capacity is much more than that of ours.

Along with BGVN-VAKAV & Akkalkot-Gulbarga section doubling work. If they will concentrate on to complete electrification in single line in full Bhigwan-Gulbarga section along with doubled line section of Vakav-Solapur-Akkalkot then we will see the electric locomotives action in full Mumbai-Chennai route. it maybe very very good news. 😍

Doubling & Electrification both are very important in this route. I think they should go for electrification along with doubling at the same time. So without any delay it will complete in time.

Mar 17 2017 (18:08)   WOW! Indian farmer wins express train in legal fight with railway - Read

New Delhi: An Indian farmer's battle for proper compensation for land seized to build a railway reached an unexpected conclusion this week when a court awarded him a train.Sampuran Singh has been fighting for the money since 2015, when he went to court to argue that Indian Railways had underpaid him for a piece of land in the northern state of Punjab acquired to build new tracks.
He won his case, but the railway refused to pay and he filed another plea in January.
On Friday Singh's lawyer said a court in the

state had awarded him an express train in lieu of the 10 million rupees ($150,000) he was owed.
"We were tired of pleading with the railways to clear the pending dues. The court asked us to identify properties for recovering our money," Rakesh Gandhi told AFP.
Judge Jaspal Verma also granted Singh ownership of the station master`s office in Ludhiana, a city in Punjab that the train passes through.
After the hearing on Wednesday Singh and his lawyer took the court order to Ludhiana station where they waited for the train to arrive before handing the document to the driver.
Singh said he allowed the driver to carry on to its destination as stopping it "would have caused inconvenience to thousands of passengers".
Railway officials later secured an interim court order giving them control of the train until the case is heard again on Saturday.
"If they fail to pay the money by Saturday then the court can sanction an auction," Gandhi said of the 20-coach express train, which runs daily between New Delhi and the Sikh holy city of Amritsar in Punjab.
Several Indian courts in the past have unsuccessfully awarded trains to aggrieved farmers over unpaid dues.
Last year, an express train was confiscated on court orders after a 62-year-farmer in southern Karnataka state won a compensation case over land taken in 2006.
The intercity express was halted at Harihar station for two hours before officials convinced him to release it.
And in 2015, railway officials handed over 3 million rupees to two farmers at a station in the northern state of Himachal Pradesh to secure the release of an express train.

During the era of wcg engines trains used to get e locos till Pune and diesel locos after Pune slowly to save time all trains were switched over to diesel and now again switching back to e locos till daund. If doubling and electrification was complete then would have been good.

Sir true, but some trains retained e locos, but were switched over to WCAMx and now some more recently WAPx. Now those trains will get e loco traction extended.
