Kolkata: The drawn out race process in a bad position for the city’s greatly required – yet ‘unnecessarily postponed’ – Metro ventures. Practically every Metro venture in the city falters habitually – on account of area issues. The seven-stage survey appears to have exacerbated the situation with the state government capturing further defer and resultant cost overwhelm of the undertakings.
The state government has as of late communicated its stress over the postponement in undertakings. Bengal’s primary secretary (transport) Alapan Bandyopadhyay has kept in touch with general chief of Metro railroad asking for additional activity to defeat the hindrances and bring back the tasks on quick track. “As of now, Metro ventures face real time overwhelm. Individuals of Kolkata have endured a considerable measure due to these endless tasks,” said a vehicle office officer.
Case in point, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) leeway for the area at Curzon Park is in limbo. In the last affable military contact gathering in front of the surveys, it was chosen that the Kolkata Metro Rail Corporation (KMRC) needs to apply for the NoC for the plot. Unless the NoC is acquired, work like moving of the cable car tracks to clear a path for the development of incorporated Esplanade Metro station can’t begin. MoD is the overseer of Maidan. Bandyopadhyay, in this way, asked for the Metro GM to prompt the KMRCL powers.
Altogether, not at all like other metro urban areas in India, all the Metro ventures here are under Ministry of railroads. In other Metro urban communities, the activities are under urban improvement service. While KMRC is the executing organization of East West Metro, Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL) is taking care of the usage of all other Metro ventures in Kolkata. “If there should arise an occurrence of Joka-BBD Bag Metro passage, I discover RVNL engineers require some more clarity on the issue of arrangement from Majherhat onwards,” the letter said.
The letter likewise said that the legislature of West Bengal can professional effectively help RVNL in finding elective area for Mominpore Metro station, yet again RVNL requires some clarity on the applications for ‘lingering protection clearances’. Other than the Momimpore land, the Joka-BBD Bag extend additionally needs plot at Maidan for bringing down the passage exhausting machine (TBM). Unless the freedom comes quick, there will be further postpone in the underground development of the Joka-BBD Bag Metro, said an authority.
The Garia-Airport hall requires a realignment close to the mouth of Rajarhat-New Town since some multi-storied structures came up after the notice of the arrangement. While the Metro powers favored an annihilation request against the structures, the state favored a realignment. The charges offered by the RVNL for study and outline of the realignment by the RITES is yet to be settled.
There is next to no advancement at Noapara-Baranagar, Noapara-Barasat by means of Airport and Baranagar-Barrackpore by means of Dakshineswar arrangements. Area is the significant obstacle here.
