(moving thread to Greater Noida section)
Zohaib comments
Noida expressway has the MAJOR advantage of having ample land kept for expansion.

Metro needs nearly 250-300 crores PER KM and will take 3-4 years to be ready .

BRTS in a region like Noida expressway can be ready in mere 5-6 months at a Fraction of a Cost.

Its extremely flexible and versatile

The first step NA should take is to start BRTS....this will give a boost to the region.

Once they have ample money and enough population in region...then Metro work can be initiated....

If BRTS is not required after Metro...they simply have to put the buses on other routes....and partition for corridor removed.

BUT.....The issue is NOT this simple

Metro Factor is used to boost the sales of Builders.....if BRT is made...then people will not Buy the Metro story....

The problem is that authority has one goal.....to make money as much as possible....

Simple things like electricity, security, etc which doesnt give them monetary gains are grossly neglected

For BRT...this is recommended:

- ISBT at Greater Noida to be start point

-From there Only Low floor AC buses to run on BRT corridor..which terminates at Botanical Metro station in Noida.Botanical metro station will have 2 routes..one going to mayur vihar and another to kalindi kunj.

- Tourist Buses to Agra can be also starting from Metro station and go to greater Noida ISBT via BRT and then take Yamuna expressway.

  • Ahmedabad BRTS

    Photos of Ahmedabad BRTS which is working is well.
    Metro cost=200 crore per km, BRTS cost 6 crore per km. Negative side--property rates won't go as much as Dwarka/Gurgaon/Vaishali but same purpose is solved.

    Pictorial representation -why BRTS will work even while reserving one lane exclusively for buses...how space wastage is avoided . (lifted from skyscraper forum)

  • Unbelievable and very pleasant to see that such good infrastructure exists within India.... I wonder why the mainstream media conveniently ignores these images and instead runs day long investigations for Nirmal Baba ;-)

  • Very Good Idea !!

    This is a very good and prudent idea... The distance from Pari Chowk to Mahamaya is exactly 23 Km.. I have made timed runs in my car... It takes about 15 to 20 minutes max. So, a BRT makes complete sense. A fleet of air conditioned Volvo buses plying from Pari Chowk to Botanical garden metro, would do wonders to the connectivity of Greater Noida to Noida.

    Also, another investment worth doing is improving the connectivity of Greater Noida to Sector 37 via the Dadri Road. A Flyover over Bhangel village and another over the Sector 46 traffic signal will ease movement of traffic and cut down the travel time considerably. It will also give a fillip to the real estate value of greater noida sectors that are close to the Surajpur entry point.
    That way, there will be even increase of real estate value near the pari chowk as well as other areas.

  • The Transportation problem of city can be solved in just 6 months with just 100 crores (Not 6000 crores..which apparently the authority doesnt have !!!)

    But its all about MOTIVE

    The Motive of all these Mega projects on paper by authority is to help Builders

    They have no intention to actually get a practical solution to issues

    They cant even have enough policemen on roads in Noida and talk about mega 300 crore security program using satellites !!!!!

  • For Lucknow BRTS corridor, experts called in from Gujarat
    http://www.indianexpress.com/news/fo...ujarat/946317/


    The Ahmedabad-based Centre for Environment Planning and Technology (CEPT) will conduct the feasibility study of a Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) in Lucknow. A team of experts from CEPT is likely to visit Lucknow next week.

    CEPT is credited with the successful implementation of the BRTS project in Ahmedabad. The institute had prepared feasibility as well as a detailed project report for the project there. A detailed system design and support during construction was provided by them.

    The Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) had approached CEPT after Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on March 24 directed the Housing and Urban Planning Department to get feasibility studies conducted for BRTS, Metro rail and mono rail in four major cities, including Lucknow, Kanpur, Agra and Varanasi.

    “After receiving our proposal, CEPT had sought some reports about Lucknow city’s road network and current traffic situation, including availability of transport mediums. The information has been sent to CEPT and a team from there will be in Lucknow soon to start the study,” said Ashtbhuja Prasad Tiwari, LDA secretary.

    Tiwari said that a detailed project report (DPR) for Metro rail in Lucknow has already been prepared by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. Last year a team from LDA had visited Mumbai to study the mono rail project there. The previous Mayawati government had got the Metro rail DPR made, but could not take a decision regarding the funding for the costly project.

    In the present government, however, there is a view that BRTS would be preferable in Lucknow as it would be more economical than Metro as well as mono rail and it will have connectivity to more localities of the city.

    In the other three cities, the development authorities have not taken any step to get feasibility studies conducted for Metro rail, mono rail or BRTS.

    Kanpur Development Authority secretary Rakesh Kumar said that they had not received any specific directions from the government in this regard.

    Agra Development Authority vice-chairman Lal Vihari said, “The ADA does not have the expertise for conducting a feasibility study. The Divisional Commissioner, as ADA chairman, has to select an expert agency, but the post has been vacant for the past few weeks.’’

    An official in the Varanasi Development Authority said that discussions were held after the Chief Minister’s directive, “but no decision about a feasibility study has been taken”.

  • @rajesh_vsworx - thanks for sharing. good to know lko talks of BRTS is happenign .now we need similar message for Noida--Greater Noida BRTS..
    US is not stupid to cancel high speed train project..cost was just too much. France/London sq.mile area is fraction of Delhi NCR..hence metro/tubes work over there pretty well.
    As zohaib said..first spent 100 crore..
    -upgrade law enforcement (increase salaries, modernize weapons/PCR vans, add internal affairs department to keep an eye on police)
    -spend money to make government school and hospitals accountable..give actual service instead of just having a brick structure which no one use
    -Put IT systems to remove intermediaries..
    -Solve this water problem--whatever it takes..AND THEN INVITE INDUSTRIES
    Jab 5000 crore aa jaye. and population is significant. then Metro bhi le aana..
