PMRDA to soon receive detailed project report on Pune metro extensions – ET RealEstate

PUNE: The Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) is expected to receive a detailed project report (DPR) on Metro corridor extensions by the next week.

Metro extensions have been proposed on Shivajinagar-Hadapsar-Loni Kalbhor and Saswad road. The DPR is being drafted by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation.

The PMRDA is already constructing a Metro line from Hinjewadi to Shivajinagar and has been working on the development of more lines in and around Pune. The proposed Shivajinagar-Hadapsar-Loni Kalbhor line will connect the city’s Western and Eastern parts.

A possibility of extending the Metro line up to Saswad road is also being explored, considering the proposed international airport ahead of Saswad. The extension towards Saswad can be from Hadapsar. “We are expecting the study report in the next few days. We will plan further after studying the report,” Suhas Diwase, PMRDA chief, said.

NEW DELHI: Lieutenant governor Anil Baijal on Wednesday reviewed work on the ongoing East Delhi Hub, a transit-oriented development (TOD) project, under which a state-of-the-art infrastructure zone will come up in the national capital.

As per the specification outlined at the time of the launch of the project, it also includes the national capital’s tallest tower, to be built in east Delhi.

“Chaired a meeting with VC DDA, officials from NBCC & other experts to review the progress of the ‘Integrated Development of East Delhi Hub, Karkardooma‘, project-One of the foremost projects being developed on Transit Oriented Development Norms with Pubic Private Partnership,” Lt governor Baijal tweeted.

The hub will be developed around the existing two Delhi Metro stations at Karkardooma — on the Blue and Pink Lines, and will include a massive open landscaped green area, besides a 48-storey signature tower that will come up in the first phase of the project, officials had said during its launch.

“The 1,168 cr project spread over 29.60 hectares of land will have mixed uses of residential and commercial components & 7.82 hectare of green area,” Baijal, also chairman of DDA, tweeted.

“Being executed by NBCC, the project will comprise of 6,518 dwelling units including 1992 dwelling units for EWS category along with various amenities like schools, dispensaries, library, cultural centre, community halls, convenient shopping, community spaces, creche,” he further said.

The two metro stations of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation within the layout itself, will provide connectivity to the commercial complex of the project, the LG said.

“Environmental friendly/ green building features, skywalk connectivity and cultural centre are other notable features of the project (sic),” he tweeted.

The LG said he has also advised the DDA’s vice chairman to “firm up” activity-wise timeline for each phase of the implementation to facilitate close monitoring and time-bound completion of the project.

“Also, advised the team to prepare a blueprint for the implementation of PPP component of the project on priority,” he added.

Aiming to promote use of public transport over private vehicles, the DDA had in December 2014 approved the East Delhi Hub project.

Union home minister Amit Shah on Thursday had laid the foundation stone in December 2019 and asserted that it would be inaugurated in the tenure of the current government at the Centre.

Delhi: Green nod to commercial tower above Bhikaji Cama Metro Station – ET RealEstate

NEW DELHI: A joint committee, comprising experts from Central Pollution Control Board, IIT-Delhi and Delhi Pollution Control Committee, has found that the proposed project for constructing a commercial tower with four floors at Bhikaji Cama Place by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation “seems reasonable and viable on environmental accounts.” The panel had conducted an environment impact assessment (EIA) and carrying capacity studies.

National Green Tribunal in August last year had said that EIA and carrying capacity studies should be conducted before the construction begins above Bhikaji Cama Place Metro Station. The proposed project is a commercial tower having four floors above ground floor with a total built-up area to the tune of 18,436 square metres.

The joint committee, which recently submitted its report on the project to NGT, said as the proposed project is a commercial complex only having visitors or employees, it is not expected to result in an increase in the population of the area. The report (a copy is with TOI) said the impact of air pollution generated at the project site on the nearby residential colonies and on the traffic pattern of the area would be marginal. The committee in its report observed that figures on water demand would exert marginal increase on the existing water supply system of the area.

A plea filed in the green tribunal had opposed the project and alleged that “the proposed construction of a commercial complex above the underground Bhikaji Cama Place Metro Station by the DMRC was designated as district park/green belt as per the Delhi Master Plan, 2021. In 2012, some open land (district park) was transferred to the DMRC, which was to be redeveloped after completion of the construction work. Construction work has been completed but instead of redeveloping the park, the DMRC has proposed to develop it as commercial complex against the environment norms and public trust doctrine requiring the park to be maintained as such.”

However, DMRC had responded saying that the land allotted was subject to land-use change for which an application had been moved to Delhi Development Authority. The report said the approval from DDA for land use change was yet to be received. The report shows that clearances and NOCs from other agencies for layout plan, sewerage, water supply, etc, are awaited.

In its report, the committee recommended that the project proponent must ensure that all necessary permission or approvals are obtained and valid. “An undertaking may be submitted that no groundwater will be extracted during the construction phase. Before dewatering (if needed) during construction, NOC may also be obtained from the District Advisory Committee on Ground Water. During construction and occupancy phase of the project, all environmental norms and proposed mitigation measures should be strictly adhered to by the project proponent,” recommended the committee.

The committee said in the report that the recommendations would be withdrawn or cancelled automatically in case size of the project was enhanced or proposed mitigation measures were not implemented.
