BENGALURU: Namma Metro took a step closer to the June-end launch of services on the elevated Mysore Road-Magadi Road stretch with the successful completion of a trial run on Friday morning.
A train, running at a speed of 25 kmph, started from Magadi Road station with 40 officials on board and entered Mysuru Road station (near Nayandanahalli Cross) at 11 am. It covered the 6.4-km distance in 22 minutes. A similar attempt on Thursday was disrupted midway due to technical reasons.
Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) Managing Director Pradeep Singh Kharola said, “The trial runs will continue in April and May. We began the trial run at a speed of 5 kmph on Thursday. It was increased to 25 kmph on Friday and it will be taken up to 80

kmph in due course.”
After completion of trials, an independent safety certification needs to be obtained. “After that, we are looking at getting clearance from the Commissioner of Rail Safety by early June. The service will be thrown open to the public by June-end,” he said.
The elevated West line is part of Reach-2 of Phase-I of Metro and the stations covered are Magadi Road, Hosahalli, Vijayanagara, Attiguppe, Deepanjali Nagar and Mysore Road.
Giving details about the status of other projects, Kharola said the East-West Underground Corridor will be open for commercial operations by June-end. On the North-South underground corridor, the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) Margarita is yet to complete a portion of the 1-km distance between Majestic and Sampige station.
Between Chickpet and Majestic, the TBM Kaveri has completed 50 metres in 15 days. It will take between five and six months to complete the entire stretch. “By August-end, definitely one of the tunnels will be ready along the North-South corridor,” Kharola said.

Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Metro Rail will construct 200 skywalks along the 72-km Metro route. As per Indian Road Congress Standards, at least 5.5m height is required for vehicles to pass. Since the viaducts have 8-9m clearance, the HMR will construct skywalks that will directly connect important schools, colleges, government buildings, hospital and other frequently visited buildings.
MD of HMR N.V.S.S. Reddy said, “The aim is to redesign the city; there are 200 metros across the world built as mere engineering structures. They have no soul. The aim is to make the Metro a people-friendly project by involving segments of the city. The concept is to make full use of public space. The Metro should be accessible for all. The skywalks will run below the viaduct for 72 km as of now. These will be connected to educational institutions, hospitals, commercial

and government complexes so that people need not take the roads but have direct access to these public places. That apart, all Metro stations will have feeder bus services.”
“At Ameerpet, Parade Grounds and MGBS, the concourse will be extended, which would be the skywalk. We want to provide facilities that will encourage commuters to walk up to the Metro stations,” he added. Eight FOBs at Ameerpet, Khairatabad, Hyderabad Public School (Begumpet), St Ann’s School (Secunderabad), Rasoolpura and Dilsukhnagar have been removed to make way for the viaduct.

B. Srinivas Reddy, the former principal of JNTU Fine Arts College, said, “In 2012, a scrap welding workshop was held at the Boduppal bus station where all the APSRTC scrap were converted into art; about 55 sculptures were created and displayed across the traffic islands and city parks by the GHMC. Any form of sculpture can be created; it depends on the material available and the artist’s thought.”“Importantly, the HMR should provide the artist space, electricity, water, paints and cranes. It (the sculpture) will completely depend on the material. Artist would need welders as well. We welcome the decision of the HMR,” added noted artist Laxman Aelay. The Metro Rail authorities haven’t approached any artist yet, and will call a public meet once the project is nearing completion.

completed by June 2017. The procedure for eliminating all preliminary obstructions in the route's path including road construction and shifting of facilities has already been completed by the NMRC.
Officials further said the Detailed Project Report for two new proposed extension routes between Noida and Greater Noida are also likely to be finalized within a month. It Earlier the DPR was to have been finalized in March this year. However, NMRC is now working on a comprehensive mobility plan, which has to be incorporated before finalizing the DPRs of the two new Metro tracks. "This will take about a month and the DPRs should be in place by May," the official said.
The two routes measuring about 26-kms are likely to come at a cost of about Rs 5,500 crores and will connect NCR better.
The plan is to extend the Blue Line from Noida City Centre into a loop, covering various parts of Noida and Greater Noida. The loop line will also be linked with Line 8 (Janakpuri West-Botanical Garden) of Phase-III by a 16.5-km stretch connecting Sector-143 and the proposed station near Kalindi Bird Sanctuary on the banks of the Yamuna, officials said.
