At stake, Metro’s nerve centre

The nerve centre of Kochi Metro’s operations will be affected if a portion of St Albert’s College Ground at Kaloor is denied to it.

At stake is the location of the metro’s corporate office, operation control centre (OCC) and metro station planned near international stadium. The ground will also occupy centre stage when the metro is extended to Kakkanad in the project’s second phase.

Metro stakeholders said the proposal to house the OCC and station here dates back to 2010 and finds mention in Kochi Metro’s detailed project report. “Later, it was suggested that the corporate office and OCC be shifted to a multi-storied complex envisaged at Jos Junction or to land within South Railway station premises. After these proposals were not found feasible, it was decided to go by the original plan,” they said.

With protests against takeover of St Albert’s College ground snowballing, it was up to Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) to take a final call on the issue, they said. On why government land located in the vicinity of international stadium is not being acquired for the purpose, sources said this was not feasible because the alignment possibly have to take a steep turn.

They spoke of how the corporate office and OCC must ideally be located next to each other so that there is coordinated response to any emergency. “This has been done in Delhi Metro. The structure must be big enough, foreseeing future extension of the metro to Kakkanad.

Another open space that will be partially acquired for the metro is a portion of Maharaja’s College Ground. Here too, students had opposed the acquisition. Metro officials said only a tiny portion of the ground would be taken over, which would not affect the playground.

They reassured that land acquisition for metro stations would be very minimal. “This is because most of the stations would be located on the viaduct itself. A few cents of land will be required on the side for the landing area and booking office.”

President of Kerala Football Association K.M.I. Mather said Kerala does not have much land and allied infrastructure for sports. “We have some big tournaments coming up in the next few years in the State. We have sent a request to the State government that existing grounds should not be used for other purposes.”

बदलेगा एसी डबल डेकर ट्रेनों की बोगियों का डिजाइन

बदलेगा एसी डबल डेकर ट्रेनों की बोगियों का डिजाइन
नई दिल्ली [संजय सिंह]। जल्द ही एसी डबल डेकर ट्रेनों की बोगियां बदली-बदली नजर आएंगी। इनके आंतरिक डिजाइन में बदलाव किया जा रहा है। यात्रियों की मांग के अनुसार कपूरथला कोच फैक्ट्री में इन्हें और ज्यादा सुविधाजनक, आरामदेह और सुरक्षित बनाया जाएगा। बदले डिजाइन में तहत प्रत्येक डबल डेकर बोगी में फायर अलार्म के अलावा शुद्ध पेयजल के लिए आरओ (रिवर्स ऑस्मोसिस) प्लांट लगाए जाएंगे। इससे यात्रियों को पानी की बोतलें खरीदने जरूरत नहीं पड़ेगी।

रेल नीर की बढ़ती मांग और सीमित उत्पादन तथा अन्य ब्रांडों को लेकर गुणवत्ता की शिकायतों के कारण ऐसा किया जा रहा है। आगे चलकर शताब्दी व राजधानी जैसी अन्य ट्रेनों की बोगियों में भी यह प्रयोग आजमाया जा सकता है। यही नहीं, इन बोगियों में मेट्रो की तरह ऑटोमेटिक दरवाजे होंगे जो ट्रेन के चलने पर बंद होंगे और रुकने पर खुलेंगे। एक और बात, आगे चलकर इन डबल डेकर ट्रेनों में एक्जीक्यूटिव क्लास भी शुरू की जाएगी। एक्जीक्यूटिव क्लास बोगियों में शताब्दी की इसी श्रेणी के 56 के मुकाबले 68 लोग बैठ सकेंगे। अभी सामान्य एसी डबल डेकर चेयरकार बोगियों में 120 लोग बैठ सकते हैं, जबकि शताब्दी की सेकंड एसी चेयरकार में 78 लोगों के बैठने की क्षमता होती है। यानी डबल डेकर की सामान्य बोगियों में शताब्दी के मुकाबले 53 फीसद ज्यादा क्षमता होती है।

यात्रियों की सुविधा और आराम के लिए डबल डेकर बोगियों में आयातित अपहोल्स्ट्री तथा पारदर्शी रोलर कर्टेन वगैरह का इस्तेमाल किया जाता है। इसके अलावा इनमें मॉड्युलर पैंट्री, पैसेंजर इन्फॉरमेशन सिस्टम तथा स्टेशनों की सूचना देने वाले एलईडी डेस्टिनेशन बोर्ड लगाए गए हैं। इसके भी यथासंभव प्रयास किए गए हैं कि टक्कर होने की स्थिति में कम से कम लोग काल-कवलित हों। क्वायल स्प्रिंग के बजाय एयर स्प्रिंग लगाकर इन बोगियों में कंपन व झटकों की संभावना भी बहुत हद तक सीमित कर दी गई है।

शुक्रवार को मध्य प्रदेश में हबीबगंज से इंदौर के बीच डबल डेकर ट्रेन चलाए जाने के साथ ही देश में डबल डेकर ट्रेनों की संख्या बढ़कर पांच हो गई है। इससे पहले हावड़ा से धनबाद, दिल्ली से जयपुर, मुंबई से अहमदाबाद तथा चेन्नई से बेंगलूर के बीच डबल डेकर ट्रेनें चलाई जा चुकी हैं।
