Instead of spending 12000cr for under ground/elevated tracks in a cojested area this amount can be used to develop a planned industrial city , where we can get plenty of openland, water..
Track on open land will be life long as compare to elevated/under gorund.
Planned city means... ... ...
1. First construct 6 lane straigh train track of 100km length.
Means city length is 100km.
2.Put one passenger (slow train) station per every one km like a, b, c, d....
train X stops at a, c, e.... other train Y stops at b,d,f...
3. Fast trains will stop for every 5km.
Develop roads (express way) parallel to the track (100km) with 8 lanes left side and 8 lanes right side both are two way use.
Major roads (access) connectivity to this road for every 5 km T-junction, which extends to 5km length, where in this path shops will exist.
Minor roads connects to access roads with 1 km pitch.
All street /colany roads get connects to minor roads.
So the city become the strcture of....
100 km length.
10 km width (left side 5km, right side 5km).
No junction points of local train track.
20 junction points of express way with access roads.
So a person any where in the city hecan travel by train and road journey is maximum of 5km.
LOcal train can be run 24 hours, since only single route it gets always with minimum number of people.
I agree. This Rs 12000 crore investment in single city fuels more population growth, more congestion which requires even more funding in future. This kind of capital centric policies drive regional imbalance further. Instead the money should be spent on roads and high way transportation to drive more decentralization.
