Minister Of Railways inaugurated International Conference on Technology for Ultra High Speed Rolling Stock
Minister of Railways Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu today i.e. on 02.09.2016 inaugurated International Conference on Technology for Ultra High Speed Rolling Stock jointly organised by Institute of Rolling Stock Engineers (IRSE) and Indian Railways Service of Mechanical Engineers Association (IRSMEA) with active support of Indian Railways. Member Rolling Stock Railway Board Shri Hemant Kumar and Member Engineering Railway Board Shri A. K. Mittal and other Railway Board officials were also present on the occasion.
Speaking on the occasion, Minister of Railways Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu said that advance technology always plays a great role in the nation building.
New Delhi: Power Ministry is looking to engage Power Grid Corp (PGCIL) to electrify 1,000 km of rail tracks on a pilot basis, as part of plans to energise 35,000 km of unelectrified lines.
The electrification project will help the government cut down crude imports and also ensure faster movement of trains on these tracks.
In the first phase, the electrification project will cover 16,000 km of busy tracks out of 35,000 km of unelectrified lines in the country. The electrification of tracks will help railways save around Rs 8,000 crore annually.
Moving ahead on its Mission 350 Plus, Railways will organise a global meet to explore the possibilities of introducing ultra-high speed technology to run trains at a speed of 500 km per hour.
New Delhi: In a bid to explore various options to enhance the speed of trains, the railways would be hosting an international conference in the national capital. The ministry of railways is looking at various technology available across the world, including the Maglev which can clock the speed of 500 kmph. The conference is part of the Mission 350 plus stated by the Railways minister Suresh Prabhu to explore the possibility of running trains in excess of 350 kmph in the country.
Bangalore: Work on the new Bengaluru-Hassan railway line, which would reduce travel time between the two cities as well as to Mangaluru, has come to an abrupt stop. The 185-km project, which has missed several deadlines, has hit another roadblock for want of land on a two-km stretch.
The project, which was commissioned in 1996 by the then prime minister H D Deve Gowda, is unlikely to be ready by December this year.
Bangalore: The cabinet on Thursday approved the 42-km Light Rail Transit System (LRTS) project proposed by the urban development department to ease the traffic woes of Bengaluru.
The LRTS project was mooted in 2007 to supplement Bengaluru’s bus transport system and act as a feeder network for the Metro rail. However, it did not take off due to lack of political will and bureaucratic complacency. As a result, the cost of the project shot up from Rs 5,600 crore, when it was first conceived, to Rs 11,000 crore now.
“Funding has been a major constraint. The cabinet has directed the urban development department to work out the modalities to mobilize financial resources for setting up a reserve fund to execute the project,” law minister TB Jayachandra said.
The government will bear around Rs 5,000 crore of the total cost of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) System announced in the State budget, said C Jayaram, Director (Projects), Bangalore Airport Rail Link Ltd. “The cost to be borne by the government will include land acquisition charges of the over Rs 10,000-crore project,” he said.
The 42-km route, to be implemented soon, will form Phase-I of the originally proposed 77-km LRT project, he said.
Proposed to supplement Namma Metro’s Phase-I and Phase-II network, the LRT consists of two elevated corridors. It will connect Bannerghatta Road to Hebbal along the Outer Ring Road covering 32 km and from Toll Gate along Magadi Road to the proposed Peripheral Ring Road, another 10 km. Both the corridors will intersect at Nirashritara Parihara Kendra (NPK).
Will Act as Feeders in Future
“In the long run, the LRT and Metro will act as feeders to one another. LRT will boost the ridership for Metro and the latter will, in turn, will provide better ridership of the Light Rail,” Jayaram added.
LRT is part of the Comprehensive Traffic and Transportation Plan proposed to ease traffic congestion in the city, the final report of which was submitted by engineering consultancy firm RITES in June 2011. A Detailed Project Report was submitted by Capita Symonds, a UK concern in 2013.
When asked about the reasons for the delay in implementing it, Jayaram said, “This is a capital-intensive project. Such projects require a longer gestation period than others so that they do not get into any legal tangles.”
Representatives from the French concern Alstom visited Bengaluru last week to make enquiries in connection with the project.
“The government will call for global tenders after cabinet approval,” Jayaram said. He was, however, non-committal on a deadline for completion of the project.
‘An Expensive Affair’
Sanjeev Dyamannavar, an urban commute expert, felt the LRT will be a costly mode of transport compared to other public transport systems. “It is similar to Metro but the coaches are smaller which reduces its carrying capacity.”
Amaravati: The Amaravati Metro Rail Corporation (AMRC) has opted out of the proposal to approach the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) for about Rs.3,500 crore loan after the Japanese agency put forth a fresh condition.
It instead signed an agreement with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on Monday for the execution of the metro rail project on a turnkey basis. “The agreement has been signed for a period of four years. By February 2019, we expect to put the priority corridor between Nidamanur and Pandit Nehru Bus Station into trial run operation,” AMRC Managing Director N. Ramakrishna Reddy told on Tuesday.
According to the plan, Railways will be introducing three types of Rail Cards – Gold, Silver and Platinum!
New Delhi: Suburban train passengers may soon get a Rail Card in place of monthly season tickets which they can also use for some retail therapy. The public sector transporter is in talks with 31 banks to firm up the co-branding proposal, a senior Railway Ministry official said. An estimated 1.1 crore passengers use local trains daily across the country.
The Indian Railways’ vinyl-wrap advertising plan for Mumbai-based trains has attracted interest from agencies such as Times OOH, Media on Track, TDI International India (P) Ltd and JCDecaux India, among others.
According to officials in the ministry of railways, who spoke requesting anonymity, these agencies have come in at the pre-bidding stage, wherein prospective bidders clarify their concerns, if any.
“Pre-bidding consultation for the vinyl-wrap tender of Mumbai-based trains was held on Tuesday (23 August). They have some demands. We are looking into it,” said a railway ministry official requesting anonymity.
Though state electricity regulatory commissions (SERCs) were set up in each state to help fix the ailing sector by enforcing higher governance standards, bringing in competition and ensuring correct tariffs were charged, as their history shows, they have done precious little.
As a result, not only have losses of state electricity boards (SEBs) ballooned—necessitating a bailout package with increasing regularity—the tariffs charged for paying customers have sky-rocketed.
The fact that increasing electricity outages coexist with high levels of unutilised capacity—as reflected in power minister Piyush Goyal’s daily tweets—is symptomatic of the mess.
