Ten remarkable infrastructure developments in india

  1. 1. Ten remarkable infrastructure developments in India Email:sandeep.patel544@gmail.com Presented BySandeep Patel IPER, Bhopal
  2. 2. Mumbai's Eastern Freeway India's second largest flyover
  3. 3. Mumbai's Eastern Freeway • Dubbed an engineering marvel, the first phase of Mumbai's Eastern Freeway from Orange gate to Panjarpol opened to the public in June 2013 while the second and last phase from Panjarpol to Ghatkopar expected to be thrown open in July. • Over 25,000 vehicles are expected to take the freeway daily. The Eastern Freeway elevated road will be the longest such in an urban area in the country. The bridge will have 313 pillars and 3,340 segments.
  4. 4. • The 17-km freeway is divided in three parts: the 9.29-km elevated road, the 4.3-km road-tunnelflyover and an elevated 2.5-km flyover from Panjarpol till the Mankhurd-Ghatkopar Link Road (MGLR) via Govandi. • The eastern freeway is Mumbai's most ambitious and much awaited project in terms of traffic decongestion as the road is expected to decongest entire eastern road corridor of the city.
  5. 5. Indore's BRTS - Built on the pattern of Ahmedabad BRTS
  6. 6. Indore's BRTS • The BRTS road route built at a cost of Rs 135 crore. City travellers have a bus frequency of 15 minutes at every specific point. The BRTS consists of physically separated bus lanes and enclosed 'metro-like' stations. • The proposed bus corridor will eventually cover a distance of 120.46 kms. The fare collection system will include smart cards. • In 2012, The UN chose Ahmedabad's BRTS as a showcase project to highlight that addressing climate change is not a burden, but an opportunity to improve the lives of people
  7. 7. Double-decker trains
  8. 8. Double-decker trains • Its been some years since India's first superfast doubledecker train was flagged off, but the railways has been introducing them on many routes. • The much-awaited air-conditoned double decker express train between Chennai and Bangalore started its run from April 25 2013 augmenting seat availability in the highdemand route. • Every coach has seats in two decks with food trays attached at the back of each seat. Every row is provided with bottle holders, push back seats, windscreens and also charging socket. Kapurthala RCF is the only railway factory in the country which manufactures double decker AC coaches.
  9. 9. India's first solar park at Charanka village in Gujarat
  10. 10. India's first solar park • Gujarat accounts for 66% of India's total solar power. The country's first Solar Park came up at Charanka village in Gujarat in April 2012. The park at Charanka, spread across 5,000 acres, has 500 MW of generation capacity of both solar and wind energy. • Solar project developers like Alex Astral, US-based Sun Edison, Lanco Solar, Roha Dyechem and GMR Gujarat Solar Power have set up plants in the park. • While 214 MW of grid connected solar power was commissioned at Charanka by 17 national and international companies, 10 solar plants having combined generation capacity of 87.49 MW have gone on stream in Surendranagar, 8 in Kutch (85 MW) and three each in Banaskantha (55.20 MW) and Rajkot (25MW), amongst others.
  11. 11. Yamuna Expressway
  12. 12. Yamuna Expressway • The 165kmlong Yamuna expressway is one of the longest accesscontrolled six-lane rigid pavements in India. With the help of Yamuna Expressway, the rapidtransit corridor between Delhi and Agra, the drive from Greater Noida to Agra takes just 90 minutes. • On the 165 km Greater Noida-Agra expressway, the maximum speed limit is 100 kmph for cars and 60 km for heavier vehicles. The Yamuna Expressway, besides connecting Delhi to Agra through Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, touches 1,182 villages of Gautam Budh Nagar, Bulandshahar , Aligarh, Hathras (Mahamaya Nagar) and Mathura district. • The expressway provides a safe and an uninterrupted movement of passenger and freight traffic between the nation capital Delhi and Agra.
  13. 13. Banihal-Qazigund rail link through India's longest railway tunnel
  14. 14. India's longest railway tunnel • An 11-km-long tunnel across the treacherous Pir Panjal mountain range on the Banihal-Qazigund railway line in Jammu and Kashmir, is the longest such transportation passage in India and second longest in Asia. The 18-km long Banihal-Qazigund section of the ambitious mountain railway, connecting Kashmir Valley with Jammu region, was inaugurated on June 26. • The railway line, which connects Kashmir Valley with Jammu region, will considerably reduce the travel time between the two places. The distance between Banihal and Qazigund, which is also one of the most treacherous stretches in the entire Kashmir rail network project, will reduce from 35 km by road to 17.5 km on train. • The tunnel is totally water proof and equipped with a fire fighting system across the entire length of the tunnel. The tunnel passes approximately 440 metres below the existing Jawahar road tunnel.
  15. 15. GIFT City in Gujarat
  16. 16. Gujarat International Finance Tech-City • Spread over an area of 886 acres, GIFT city city project aims at state-of-the-art internal infrastructure encompassing all basic urban infrastructure elements along with an excellent external connectivity by roads, metro rail and Bus Rapid Transport Service (BRTS). • The Rs 60,000-crore GIFT City project will house a financial servicesbased multi-services SEZ, a centre for domestic financial sector, corporate offices, regional offices of companies, a trade centre, housing colonies, social infrastructure and other associated amenities. The project is expected to create ten lakh new jobs in ten years. • The city will use the energy-efficient district cooling system instead of air-conditioning. It will also use an automated waste collection system that sucks away garbage from buildings at high speed.
  17. 17. Metro rail projects in various cities
  18. 18. • The Metro fever is catching up in smaller cities, thanks largely to the success of Delhi Metro. While Bangalore has already started metro services, Jaipur, Gurgaon and Mumbai are expected to begin operations this year. • Meanwhile, Mumbai's Chembur-Wadala monorail section, which is India's first is set to be operational later this year. The 13 km first reach of Kochi Metro Rail project from Aluva to Palarivattom is expected to be completed by December 2015 and the second by March 2016. • The Hyderabad Metrorail is the world's largest elevated Metro Rail PPP project based on DBFOT basis (Design, Built, Finance, Operate and Transfer). • The Union urban development ministry has decided to consider the proposal for Metro in Tier II cities like Lucknow, Kanpur, Patna, Ahmedabad, Pune, Surat, Indore, Nagpur, Coimbatore, Kozhikode. Guwahati will soon have Metro rail with the Centre approving Assam Government's proposal for the mass transit system.
  19. 19. Modernization underway at India's Airports
  20. 20. • World over governments spend billions to make that airport moment agreeable and delightful for visitors and locals alike. India, with the gleamy T3 in Delhi, is just getting there...With the AAI initiating a number of upgradation works -both for airports and airspace navigation - the technology to be used is also undergoing a phenomenal change. • While Hyderabad Airport has been rated as the No. 1 in India by Skytrax-World Airport Awards, the GVK-led consortium that operates Mumbai airport will throw open terminal 2, or T2, that it hopes will outshine Delhi airport's T3. • Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport's new passenger terminal has come up in Kolkata. It will have a capacity to handle an annual traffic of 20 million passengers as compared to the present 7.46 million. A new glass-and-steel domestic terminal at Chennai airport is also coming up.
  21. 21. World's highest rail bridge to come up across Chenab river
  22. 22. World's highest rail bridge • Arguably one of the toughest engineering challenges in hand, Railways plans to complete the Chenab bridge in Jammu and Kashmir by 2016, making it the world's highest rail bridge. • The arch-shaped bridge across Chenab river-bed in Reasi district, which will be five times the height of Qutab Minar at 359 m above river bed, will connect Baramulla and Srinagar to Jammu via Udhampur-Katra-Qazigund covering the entire route in about seven hours. • The 1,315-m-long engineering marvel would boast of several unique features. The design would ensure that it withstands blast and seismic activities, while the signalling arrangements would ensure the train does not encounter high wind velocity at that height.
