State govt agrees to increase built-up area on railway land 4.4.2018 deccanherald.com
Pushing for the formation of a special purpose vehicle for the suburban railway project in Bengaluru, the state government has written to the Centre, agreeing to increase the floor space index (FSI) for railway land while suggesting the financial structure for the SPV. Mondays letter was in response to Railway Minister Piyush Goels statement that the Centre would share 50% of the project cost (instead of the earlier 20%) if the state government increased the FSI of railway land to 1:5. The present index is 1:2.5 and the change would provide for an increase in the built-up area. Mahendra Jain, Additional Chief Secretary, Urban Development Department, one of the nodal officers for the project, said the in-principle agreement was subject to local conditions. "The hike in the FSI for each parcel of the railway land will be subject to local conditions," he added. The letter says the Karnataka Railway Infrastructure Development Corporation (K-RIDE) could be used as the "vehicle for the constitution of the ...

Untangling the Majestic mess 24.3.2018 deccanherald.com
Untangling the Majestic mess Commuters in their teeming thousands struggling up and down narrow stairs; senior citizens pulling and pushing heavy luggage on long, unwieldy corridors; strangers to the city wandering without a clue. The citys busiest transport hub, Majestic is a gigantic mess. The ill-planned nerve centre of the railways, the metro and bus services is a poor advertisement for seamless inter-modal connectivity. Sprawling in its expanse, the KSR City Railway Station is a gigantic crowd-puller. One look at those overcrowded platforms, and you know there is not an inch of space left for more. Its foot over-bridges packed beyond capacity, its escalators too narrow for peak-hour rush, the Stations infrastructure cries for a serious hyper-boost. Cumbersome transition But the ordeal begins much before reaching the Station. The Majestic interchange Metro station has emerged as everyones favourite hop-off point to board either an inter-city train or a KSRTC bus. This is also where people heading to ...

Cantonment-Whitefield quadrupling project worth Rs 493 crore sanctioned 21.3.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The quadrupling of the Bengaluru Cantonment-Whitefield railway line, pending for over 20 years, is set to become a reality with the railways sanctioning Rs 492.87 crore on Wednesday for adding two more tracks. The original project, sanctioned in 1997-98, had proposed the quadrupling of Bengaluru City (Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna)-Whitefield section. But the scarcity of land between Bengaluru City and Bengaluru Cantonment stations and the high cost had put the entire project on the back burner. "Though the Ministry of Urban Development subsequently recommended the Transit-Oriented Development of Krishnarajapuram and Whitefield stations involving (an) extension of Bengaluru Metro, it had been decided to drop the quadrupling project considering its non-viability," a statement by the Press Information Bureau said. Officials modified the proposal, limiting the quadrupling project to the Cantonment-Whitefield section, where the railways has the land. "One track will be built on either side of the existing ...
