The Union Cabinet, chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the development of Pune Metro Rail Project Phase – 1. The Pune Metro Rail Corridor will be covering a length of 31.254 km comprising with two corridors i.e. Corridor-1 {Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) to Swargate} covering length of 16.589 km (11.57 km elevated and 5.019 km underground) and Corriodor-2 (Vanaz to Ramwadi) covering 14.665 km (fully elevated).
The total completion cost of the metro rail corridor will be Rs.11,420 crore. The population of approximately 50 lakh of Pune Metropolitan Area will be benefitted through this metro corridor.
The

project is scheduled to be completed in five years from the date of start of work as per the Detailed Project Report (DPR).
The approved alignments are expected to provide the much needed connectivity to the commuters and would traverse through some of the densest and traffic congested routes in the Pune Metropolitan Area. It will considerably reduce the traffic congestion and will bring in fast, comfortable, safe, pollution-free and affordable mass transportation system in the city, which in turn will contribute to further development and prosperity of the area. Development and prosperity of Pune Metropolitan Area will also contribute to the prosperity and development of the nation.
The Project will be implemented by Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MAHA-METRO), which will be a 50:50 jointly owned company of Government of India and Government of Maharashtra. Project will be covered under the legal framework of the Metro Railways (Construction of Works) Act, 1978; the Metro Railways (Operation and Maintenance) Act, 2002; and the Railways Act, 1989, as amended from time to time.
The existing Nagpur Metro Rail Corporation Limited (NMRCL) which is a joint Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) of Government of India (GoI) and Government of Maharashtra (GoM), would be reconstituted into Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MAHA-METRO) for implementation of all metro projects including Pune Metro Rail Project Phase-1 in the State of Maharashtra outside Mumbai Metropolitan Region. The project will benefit from experience and learnings from other Metro Rail projects in Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Kochi, Nagpur etc.
Background:
Pune Metropolitan Area includes Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC). Both the cantonment areas namely Pune and Khadki have witnessed rapid growth of population. The population of Pune Urban Agglomeration was 4.99 million as per 2011 census compared to 3.57 million in 2001 census. This is further projected to increase to 6.90 million in 2021 and 7.73 million in 2031.
Rapid industrialization and intense commercial developments in the past decades have resulted in steep rise in travel demand, putting Pune’s transport infrastructure to stress. With the projected increase in the area’s population, strengthening and augmenting the existing transport infrastructure has assumed urgency. With the growing economy and inadequate public transport services, the passengers will shift to private modes, which is already evident from the high vehicle ownership trend in the region. This would not only aggravate the congestion on streets but also increase the air pollution. Hence, Metro Rail System has become essential.

Volunteers of Citizens for Bengaluru (CfB) will carry out a ‘Chuku Buku Railu Beku’ awareness campaign on December 17, demanding a commuter train network for the city.
They will board the 9 am train to Bangarpet at the Bengaluru City railway station. The train stops at Bengaluru Cantonment, Bengaluru East, Baiyappanahalli, KR Puram, Hoody and Whitefield stations, Srinivas Alavilli, member, CfB, told reporters on Friday. Many college students and noted musician Raghu Dixit will take part, he added.

used by the government. Not many people, including government officials, are aware of the network’s potential, said a CfB volunteer.
Actor Prakash Belawadi said the proposal to build a commuter rail network in Bengaluru was first mooted 32 years ago but nothing came out of it. He said suburban trains could substantially reduce private vehicles and bring down pollution. Instead of constructing a steel flyover at a cost of Rs 1,800 crore, the government can spend the amount on building a commuter train network in Bengaluru, he added.
K N Krishna Prasad, convener of Bengaluru Suburban Rail Passengers’ Forum, said Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad and Pune all had suburban rail systems. In Mumbai, around 75 lakh people depend on the suburban rail for their daily commute. According to him, building a suburban train network would not cost much. By spending just Rs 300 crore, the suburban rail system can be introduced in Bengaluru in six months, he suggested.
In the evening, CfB volunteers organised a freeze mob demonstration to promote the suburban rail network option and gather votes against the steel flyover project. For nearly half an hour, 20 volunteers became statues at various locations on MG Road to explain to people the need for a commuter rail network and invite them to the awareness campaign on December 17.

The station redevelopment projects, which envisage provision of state-of-the-art facilities to the travelling public, are intrinsically complex and require high degree of project planning, detailed techno-economic feasibility studies and in-principle approval from various local bodies before bidding can be taken up. Hence, such projects generally have long gestation periods.
As a result of efforts made by Railways in this direction, contract for redevelopment of one station viz. Habibganj has been awarded. Request for Qualification (RFQ) for 2 stations, viz. Anand Vihar and Bijwasan (in Delhi) has been finalized and bidders shortlisted. Request for Proposal (RFP) has also been invited for the Anand Vihar station.

The measures announced to prevent accidents and ensure safety in the last two Railway Budgets were, Train Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) on High Density Network, elimination of unmanned level crossings in a phased manner and review the recommendations of High-Level Safety Review Committee headed by Dr. Kakodkar.
Following steps have been taken to avoid collisions due to Signal Passing at Danger (SPAD) or over speeding and ensure safety:

Train Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) is a radio communication based system with continuous update of movement authority. This system is aimed at providing capability of preventing train accidents caused due to Signal Passing at Danger (SPAD) or non observance of speed restrictions by train drivers. Signal aspect is also displayed on DMI (Driver Machine Interface) screen inside the Locomotive in train system. After successful Proof of Concept trials of TCAS, RDSO has taken up extended field trials of TCAS on a pilot section Lingamapalli-Vikarabad-Wadi-Bidar section of South Central Railway.
Train Protection and Warning System (TPWS) is a proven Automatic Train Protection System to avoid train accidents on account of human error of Signal Passing at Danger (SPAD) or over-speeding. As a pilot project, TPWS has been provided on Chennai-Gummidipundi Suburban Section of Southern Railway, Hazrat Nizamuddin – Agra Section of Northern/North Central Railway and Dum Dum-Kavi Subhash section of Kolkata Metro.
Elimination of Unmanned Level Crossings through various means – It has been decided to progressively eliminate all unmanned level crossings by (i) closing unmanned crossings having NIL/negligible Train Vehicle Units (TVUs), (ii) merger of unmanned level crossing with nearby unmanned/manned gates or Road Under Bridge or Road Over Bridge or Subway by construction of diversion road, (iii) provision of Subways/Road Under Bridges. The Unmanned Level Crossings which cannot be eliminated by the above means will be progressively manned based on the volume of rail road traffic (TVU) and visibility conditions.
A High Level Safety Review Committee (HLSRC) under the Chairmanship of Dr. Anil Kakodkar, former Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission, was constituted on 16.09.2011 to look into all technical and technology related aspects in connection with safe running of train services in the country. The Committee submitted its report on 17.02.2012. The Committee (HLSRC) has made 106 recommendations covering the various aspects of Indian Railways. Out of the 106 recommendations, 68 have been fully accepted, of which 27 have been fully implemented. 19 recommendations have been partially accepted for implementation and 19 were found not suitable for acceptance.
