1. Introduction

1.1. Background
The National Capital Region (NCR) is a planning region comprising the entire National Capital Territory of Delhi and the parts of the neighbouring states of Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan. With the total area of the region as 33,578 km2 (12,965 sq mi), it is one of the world's largest urban agglomerations. The constituent areas of the NCR are given below: (i) (ii) National Capital Territory (NCT) Delhi (4.4 per cent of NCR area); Haryana Sub-region Faridabad, Gurgaon, Rohtak, Sonepat, Rewari, Jhajjar, Mewat and Panipat districts of Haryana (40.0 per cent of NCR area); (iii) Rajasthan Sub-region Alwar district of Rajasthan (23.3 per cent of NCR area); (iv) Uttar Pradesh Sub-region Meerut, Ghaziabad, Gautam Buddha Nagar, Bulandshahar and Baghpat districts of UP (32.3 per cent of NCR area) The map of the constituent areas of NCR is given at Figure 1.1. The total population of the region was about 37.1 million (2001). As per the Regional Plan 2021 (RP21), it is estimated to grow to 48.6 million by 2011 and 64.1 million by 2021. Thus the region has not only very high concentration of the people but is also a fast growing economic hub.

Feasibility Study and DPR for Delhi- Gurgaon-Rewari-Alwar RRTS Corridor

Inception Report

The central core of the NCR i.e. NCT Delhi has been experiencing rapid and explosive growth in terms of population. The population has increased from 9.3 million in 1991 to 13.7 million in 2001. It is estimated that it will grow to 23 million by the year 2021. This rapid growth of population is coupled with high growth in economic activities and therefore transport demand is also increasing. The public transport system is inadequate to cater to the increased demand and consequently, there has been an explosive growth of private vehicle population in Delhi. This has led to the congestion on the roads, which in turn has led to high consumption of fossil fuel and consequent increase in environment pollution. The road network in Delhi essentially exhibits Radial Corridor pattern. There are nine corridors which form vital network system of transport in the region. It comprises national highways, state highways, major and other district roads. The primary NH system of five roads converges into Delhi (NH-1, 2, 8, 10 & 24) and two (NH-58 & 91) at the Ghaziabad. One State Highway (SH 14) also converges at Delhi. Other NHs i.e. NH 71, NH 71-A, NH 93 and NH 119 and State Highways also serve in strengthening the regional road network. The road network of the region is shown at Figure 1.2. The rail network in NCR shows the similar Radial Corridor pattern with eight Broad Gauge railway lines converging towards Delhi. The rail network has two special identified lines known as the Goods Avoiding Line (GAL) and Delhi Avoiding Line (DAL). The GAL provides a direct entry into New Delhi from Ghaziabad avoiding Delhi Railway Station, The DAL provides a direct entry into the Delhi - Ambala section from Tughlaqabad. The rail network of NCR is shown at Figure 1.3.

Feasibility Study and DPR for Delhi- Gurgaon-Rewari-Alwar RRTS Corridor

Inception Report

The Regional Plan 2021 prepared by NCR Planning Board highlighted the need for better integrated connectivity and accessibility in the region through development of Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) which would connect NCT Delhi with the rest of the region on lines of an earlier study titled Identification of Rail Projects for commuter travel in National Capital Region and Delhi which was commissioned by Northern Railways. The main aim of the study was to wean away the commuters from road based system to an optimal multimodal mass transport system. The study recommended twenty eight railway projects for commuter travel in NCT Delhi and National Capital Region to be implemented in three phases. The estimated cost of phase I was Rs. 58 billion (1998 prices). The study also recommended to integrate these corridors with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) network and road based mass transport system. This report has been reviewed in the literature review section. In 2001, NCR Planning Board identified three corridors for the implementation of Integrated Rail cum Bus Transit (IRBT) System on priority. These three corridors are: a) Shahdara-Ghaziabad (14.92 km), b) Sahibabad-Minto Bridge (17.36 km), c) Trinagar-Gurgaon (30.53 km) A detailed techno-economic feasibility study for these corridors was taken up. The study for Trinagar-Gurgaon corridor has been reviewed in literature review section. Another study was commissioned by NCR Planning Board to prepare an Integrated Transportation Plan for National Capital Region. The draft report of the study identified the following eight Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridors to be implemented in NCR for the movement of commuters. 1. 2. 3.

2. Literature Review

UMTC has carried out a brief literature review of some of the relevant studies undertaken in the recent past. This is followed by the review of the proposals of the Development Plans for the towns which fall on the existing railway alignment.

2.1. Identification of Rail projects for Commuter Travel in National Capital Region and Delhi March 2000
NCR was conceived to develop selected settlements outside Delhi in order to diffuse pressure on Delhi. An adequate and efficient Mass Transit System within Delhi and its connection to settlement in NCR is one of the major tools to achieve this objective. With this background Northern Railways commissioned a study in 1998 to identify railway projects for commuter travel in NCR and Delhi. The objective of the study was to develop a phased, cost- effective plan for an integrated rail/ road/ MRT system in the study area with the view to reduce travel time, congestion and pollution on roads of NCT of Delhi and NCR. The study undertaken revealed that in 1998, 102 lakh intra city vehicular trips were performed daily of which 62% were by buses, 1% by rail and remaining 37% by all other modes. In addition 20 lakh intercity trips were also being performed daily of which 50% were by buses, 20% by rail and 30% by all other modes. The study forecasted that by 2005 the daily intra city vehicular trips would increase to 157 lakhs and by 2025 to 249 lakhs. Of these daily trips, 82% would be by mass transport if improved mass transit system is provided. For intercity travel to Delhi, transport demand was expected to grow to 35 lakh trips daily by 2005 and 90 lakhs trips by 2025. Of these about 40% were projected to be performed by rail. The consumer preference survey undertaken revealed a substantial shift towards a mass transport system both in inter and intra city traffic if a well-integrated rail cum road based system (such as buses) is provided. Considering the demand and capacity of various sections, a commuter rail development plan to be implemented in three phases, was prepared.

2.2. Detailed Techno-Economic Feasibility Study for Integrated Rail cum Bus Transit (IRBT) Corridors- January 2003
Transport Department, Govt. of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD) commissioned another study to prepare techno-economic feasibility study for three corridors identified in the previous study. These corridors were a) Shahdara-Ghaziabad (14.92 km), b) Sahibabad-Minto Bridge (17.36 km), c) Trinagar-Gurgaon (30.53 km) The study was based on the following key parameters: The alignment to be kept along the existing tracks on the Northern Railway as far as possible. Railway and Government land to be utilized as far as possible so as to minimize the acquisition of private land. Indian Railways parameters to be followed as far as possible for track layout, design of structures and system planning including the coaches. Interconnectivity with Indian Railways to be provided at identified locations Planning for feeder buses to be carried out in detail to develop the integrated transport system. Utilize the existing infrastructure for Indian Railways to the extent of spare capacity. Ongoing and planned Railway projects in the influence area to be considered in planning the track layout. Based on various primary surveys undertaken and secondary data sources, it was estimated that IRBT corridor of Tri Nagar to Gurgaon would carry 3.20 lakh passengers per day with an average lead of 12.47km. The passenger kilometers carried would be 39.91 lakh.

The study finally recommended providing two Broad Gauge (BG) lines and using the existing Railway BG lines between Gurgaon and Delhi Cantonment and one BG line between Patel Nagar and Delhi Cantonment. Between Patel Nagar and Tri Nagar two elevated BG lines were recommended to be provided as the alignment is away from the existing railway system. The total length of the identified corridor was 25.78, including 2.25 km of elevated portion. Three terminals were identified North end terminal at Tri Nagar (near DMRC Tri Nagar Station), South end terminal at Gurgaon and mid terminal at Shahbad Mohammadpur (which at present is a halt station for Northern Railway). Passengers interchange facilities with Delhi metro system were required to be planned at Tri Nagar and New Patel Nagar station. A feeder route plan was developed taking into consideration factors like the existing bus routes and minimum route length and maximum influence area of the station etc. A total of 47 routes connected to 13 stations requiring feeder bus service, with an average route length of 6.8km were identified. They were expected to cater to 2.8 lakh passengers. The overall capital cost of the 25.78km corridor was estimated as Rs 8480 million including 8% general charges and 3% as contingency. This did not include the cost of land. The FIRR of the project was worked out to be 8.32% and EIRR as 31.75% A map showing the alignment is given at Figure 2.2

2.3. Integrated Transportation Plan for National Capital Region (draft report)
National Capital Region Planning Board (NCRPB), on approval of RP-21, initiated preparation of an Integrated Multi Modal Transport Plan (IMMTP) to be in consonance and within the policy framework of the RP-21. The draft report presented findings of surveys and studies, policy framework and details of IMMTP. The daily intra-regional travel demand in NCR for horizon year (2032) ranged from 10.0 to 15.44 million for different scenarios while daily goods tonnage generation varied from 1.79 to 2.48 million tonnes. The horizon year trip end forecasts incorporating inter and intra-region passenger trips ranged from 18.3 to 23.77 million while it varied from 5.87 to 6.57 million tonnes for goods traffic. Based on the evaluation of different scenarios, the report has suggested a Strong NCR Integrated Multi Modal Transport System as the most optimal scenario.

Rewari Draft Development Plan - 2021 Rewari is one of the regional centres, proposed in the regional plan. The town lies in the extreme south of the state and is situated at a distance of 93 km from Delhi towards its south-west. As per Census 2001 the city had a population of 1.01 lakhs. This is expected to increase 4 times and reach 4.5 lakhs by 2021 due to growth of adjoining industrial estates of Bawal and Dharuhera and resultant in-migration of population from surrounding districts. Accordingly, the density of the town is also expected to increase from 20 persons per hectare (PPH) to 90 PPH. The total area of Rewari is 4971 hectare, of which only 645 hectares form part of the municipal limits. The proposed land use distribution of Rewari is shown in Table 2.3.

Master Plan for Alwar 1988-2001 (extended for 2011) Alwar is the biggest town and a very important trading centre of North-Eastern Rajasthan. The town has a population of 2.7 lakhs as per Census 2001 and the Draft Master Plan has estimated a population of 3.85 lakh by 2011. In 1988, Alwar Municipal Area was about 9,375 acres of which only 5,500 acres was developed. To house the projected population of 4 lakh by 2011 and provide for work centers, community facilities, services and transportation system, the master plan has estimated the need for 4545 hectares additional land by 2011 (with an overall the town level density as 110 PPH).

Alwar is situated at the junction of three State Highways. The road pattern in the old city consists of narrow roads running in a haphazard manner. The outer areas of the city are served by six major roads which are 80-100 wide. The existing Alwar-Delhi road is serving the local as well as the regional and through traffic. Thus, in order to divert the through traffic, two bypass roads have been proposed. In addition to address problems of congestion due to absence of proper truck terminal resulting in

3.4. Reconnaissance, Review of Earlier Studies & Secondary Data Collection


Preliminary field visits for reconnaissance of the transport system / network along the corridor have been conducted. Consultant also attended a meeting of the task force held on 23rd April 2010 to assess the views and suggestions on the study and will incorporate them in the stage reports. As a part of scope of work, the Consultant will review earlier similar studies including their system specification, cost estimates and ridership. The major objective for this exercise would be to get an idea about the previous methodologies adopted for forecasts and their limitations. The Consultant will also review other secondary data like the development plans of cities falling on the alignment of the proposed corridor. The brief review of the previous reports and the development plans has been presented in Section 2 of this report. The Consultant will also identify & analyse project specific relevant data which can be collected through the secondary surveys.

3.5. Traffic Field Surveys & Transport Demand Forecast


The aim of this module is to estimate the demand for the corridor for the horizon years. The first step for establishing the demand on new system is to estimate the quantum of total traffic in the corridor in the base year across all modes and across all purposes. This will constitute the candidate traffic out of which a part of the traffic is expected to shift on the new system. To establish candidate traffic consultant will collect information from three different sources: 1. People using the Railways (ticketing information) 2. People using buses (to be conducted at bus terminals of major towns on corridor) 3. People using Cars Taxis, Vans, Auto rickshaws and Two Wheelers (Through road side interviews at 13 locations on key roads connecting these locations)

29

Feasibility Study and DPR for Delhi- Gurgaon-Rewari-Alwar RRTS Corridor

Inception Report

The quantum of traffic willing to shift to RRTS will be established through an interview survey. This survey will use a questionnaire which will have 2 parts: i) Socio-economic profile of the respondent. It will help to profile the respondent into categories that can be grouped. It is assumed that one category of respondent would have similar willingness to shift which will be different from the respondents in other categories. ii) 5 point likert scale: The questionnaire will be so designed that the response can be regressed with the variables of the scenarios such as fare, waiting time, comfort, travel speed etc. to develop response functions of the form. The responses on this pro forma will allow the calibration of a logit function. The probability (P) of shift is then computed through the below logit form P= 1/(e-R) Where R is the response function derived as per following. R= m1xv1+m2xv2. Where m1 and m2 are the derived coefficients and v1 and v2 are variable scenarios such as fare, frequency etc. This function will be derived for various segments of users and applied to each of the segmental candidate OD Matrices. The trip matrices of probable users derived so will then be summed up to obtain the total demand for the RRTS. This will provide the demand in terms of total trips, segmental loadings as well as station loadings that can be used for calibrating the model for the base year. Consultant will collect information on railway ridership on the corridor through ticketing sale data and establish elasticities between growth of traffic and economic parameters such as GDP/Industrial Growth/Population etc. A similar exercise will be carried out for the road traffic. On the basis of the development plan for the cities which have been reviewed earlier, the consultant will establish economic trends in the corridor and forecast the economic parameters along the influence zone of the

30

Feasibility Study and DPR for Delhi- Gurgaon-Rewari-Alwar RRTS Corridor

Inception Report

RRTS. On the basis of elasticities derived above consultant will establish growth rates for various segments of users and using these growth rates the candidate OD matrices will be forecast for the design years. (Application of growth rates on trip matrix). Forecast travel demand will then be estimated by applying the probability function as derived above. The traffic forecasts on the proposed RRTS Corridors will include section-wise passenger loads, transfers at interchange locations and intensity of utilisation for the horizon years 2021 and 2031.

3.6. Selection of Alignment


After the completion of the traffic study, various options for alignment will be explored and the most optimal alignment will be finalized after discussion with the Client. The alignment will be selected with the objective to minimize the private land acquisition and maximize the ridership. The route alignment will be plotted on the available survey maps of the corridors using alignment design parameters for the selected system such as curvature requirements, station locations, gradient, vehicle characteristics and reversal requirement. The operational width of the route alignment will be worked out depending upon dimensions of rolling stock of the suggested RRTS and other clearances required and its feasibility will be ascertained at site with a view to accommodating the same. The areas/locations requiring widening to accommodate the proposed system and land requirement will also be identified. Yard remodelling and connections to existing alignment will be spelt out.

3.7. Detailed Field Investigations


Topographic Survey Topographic Survey will be conducted along the existing railway alignment from Delhi to Alwar, covering an area of 50 m on either side of the extreme tracks by establishing the control points and using the Auto Levels and Total Station for further detailing. The outputs will be presented in AutoCAD drawing format. The survey will cover built up line to built-up line and include all physical elements as well as Spot / Ground levels. Additional Topographic survey will be conducted for the requirement of the new alignment on its approval by the client.

31

Feasibility Study and DPR for Delhi- Gurgaon-Rewari-Alwar RRTS Corridor

Inception Report

Geo-Technical Investigation The investigations will be conducted @ 1 borehole per half km (average) along the approved alignment of the corridor to assess the geological profile for structural suitability of the proposed System.

3.8. System Specifications and O&M Plan


System Specifications The consultant will submit station yard layouts, terminal yards etc. The consultant will also recommend optimal technology relating to Rolling Stock, Signalling and Telecommunications issues, Power and Traction System and methodology relating to rail traffic & train operations. The parameters of evaluation of system selection will include; Right of Way Requirement Passenger Carrying Capacity Capital Cost Operational Cost Life Cycle Cost Land Requirement Power Requirement Future Capacity Augmentability Adaptability with the citys transport network and Inter-modal Integration Compatibility/connectivity with the existing system

Maintenance Requirement of Proposed System The requirement of maintenance depots, their location, type and capacity will be established for the system. The maintenance cycle/schedules, stabling requirements, availability of the land, idle running of the vehicles, etc. will be spelt out. The facilities to be provided at the maintenance depots will also be identified depending

32

Feasibility Study and DPR for Delhi- Gurgaon-Rewari-Alwar RRTS Corridor

Inception Report

upon the operational requirements. Approximate land requirement for the maintenance depots will also be suggested. Construction Methodology Depending upon the type of structure and its functional usage etc., broad methodology for construction of the alignment, stations and depot will be suggested. To facilitate the construction, location of the construction depots will be identified depending upon the availability of land, and their functional requirements.

3.9. Station Planning and Intermodal Integration


Planning for Stations & Related Facilities The requirement of the number of the stations and their locations will be worked out depending upon the catchment area, approach to the station, inter-station distance, availability of the land at site, curvature of the alignment etc. Interchange facility from one mode of transport to the other will be suggested depending upon availability of existing modes of transport, peak hour station load, availability of land area etc. Depending upon the operational requirements/constraints and site conditions, the type of platform at various stations will be suggested. Approximate land requirement for each group of stations will also be worked out. Passenger Dispersal & Inter-modal Integration Objective of an integrated transport system is to gain maximum advantage from economic, efficient traffic handling and planning consideration. The various modes of transport will be proposed to be integrated in such a way that each mode supplements the other. Feeder services to selected stations will be indicated in order to provide convenient and quick transfer of passengers from one mode of transport to the other. Transit Oriented Development (TOD) The consultant will define opportunities and constraints for the TOD in the selected stations after summarising the key opportunities. Consultant will also suggest a 33

conceptual development program on the basis of site conditions, study area context, and real estate market conditions. Further a phasing plan will also be prepared.

3.10.

Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (EIA and SIA)

The Study would look at environmental and social effects due to the proposed alignment. The parameters of hydrology & surface water quality, air quality, soils and geology, noise, pollution, land use, forests & fisheries, historical & cultural monuments will be considered for environmental impact assessment. The EIA will analyse the impacts due to project location, project design, project construction and project implementation. The socio-economic profile of the Project Affected People (PAPs), whose private properties or land have to be acquired or those who are displaced due to the implementation of the project on the proposed alignment will be carried out. In addition, data will also be compiled for the other structures which get affected due to the proposed corridor. Using this data a Relief and Rehabilitation Plan will be prepared.

3.11.

Project Costing and Economic & Financial Analysis

Cost Estimation Block cost estimates for various components such as land, vehicles/rolling stock, civil works, depots, stations/terminals, electro-mechanical system, energy for operation & signalling system will be worked out. Operation & maintenance cost will also be worked out for various years of operation depending upon projected traffic on various sections of proposed system. Economic Appraisal Economic analysis is a technique whereby the effect of the project on all segments of the society is assessed. Economic appraisal of the project will be carried out using Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) technique. The process will be carried out within the framework of with and without (Business as usual) the project situation. The

34

Feasibility Study and DPR for Delhi- Gurgaon-Rewari-Alwar RRTS Corridor

Inception Report

without the project situation assesses the cost to the economy in case the projected volume of traffic will continue to be moved with the prevailing modes of transport. The with the project situation estimates the total system costs that the economy has to bear by introduction of the proposed Integrated Public transport system. In both cases, the relevant costs (fixed and variable) and benefits will be worked out. The cash flows will be worked out for the entire project period covering construction and operation phases. The sum of difference between the two cost streams (i.e. with and without the project) and benefits is net benefit of the project. The cost under the above situations will be evaluated on appropriate shadow prices as per the guidelines of the Planning Commission. Economic internal rate of return (EIRR) will be evaluated from net benefit stream. Financial Analysis & Financing Plan Financing is crucial to the introduction/expansion of rail transit facilities. For such projects, Government financing may not have priority. Therefore other sources of financing including privatisation need to be explored. Various possibilities for meeting the capital cost of the RRTS project are Equity (Center/State Government and Private sector), Debt, Subordinate Debt by Government, Property

Development/TOD along and/or on RRTS facilities and Dedicated Levies and Taxes. Some other sources to fund the capital cost may also be suggested during course of the study. Besides the O&M costs, the project will have to bear other major costs, viz. repayment of loans, interest on debt, contributions towards depreciation reserve fund, actual replacement cost of worn out assets and additions to rolling stock (to cater to the increasing ridership). The sources of meeting O & M costs are fare box collections, advertising, property development at stations & depot and Rentals from shops, Kiosks etc. and Interest on short term investment. The financial analysis for the project will be carried out using the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) technique to arrive at indicators such as internal rate of return. Sensitivity analysis will also be carried out to check the impact of various factors. The financial

35

4. Issues for Consideration of the Client


4.1. Changes suggested in the deliverables:
As per the schedule of deliverables provided in the contract for consultancy services, the 4th Stage Report i.e. Topographical Study Report and Geotechnical Investigation Report are to be submitted after one month of approval of the Travel Demand Forecast Report. The topographic survey is to be carried out for the area 50 metres on either side of the existing extreme tracks and the proposed alignment. While topographic survey of the existing railway alignment can be started right away, the same cannot be taken up for the proposed RRTS alignment unless it is approved by NCR Planning Board. Similarly geotechnical investigations, which are to be done for the new alignment, cannot be taken up unless the new alignment is approved. Consequently, the approval of new alignment is a condition precedent for preparation and submission of the Topographical Study Report and Geotechnical Investigation Report. It is therefore proposed that after the approval of 3rd Stage Report containing Travel Demand Forecast, a Corridor Alignment Report be submitted by the consultant as the 4th Stage Report. Thus the new alignment of the RRTS corridor can be approved expeditiously which will facilitate conduct of Topographical survey and the Geotechnical Investigations of the approved alignment area. The Topographical Study Report and Geotechnical Investigation Report will be submitted along with the Feasibility Report as 5th Stage Report, after the approval of new alignment for the corridor. NCR Planning Board may please consider and approve the suggested change in the schedule of reporting. The work Program has been drawn incorporating the suggested change.

4.2. Assistance required from the Client


NCR Planning Board (the Client) has agreed to facilitate the Consultant by providing following assistance for the duration of Consultancy Services: Issuing letters of request for organizing traffic police help for stopping of vehicles during Road Side Interview surveys.

5.1. Primary Surveys


As per the TOR of the study, following primary surveys are required to be carried out by the Consultant during the course of the study. 1. Traffic Surveys 2. Topographic Surveys 3. Geo Technical Investigations Out of the above surveys, the traffic surveys have already been commissioned and commenced. NCR Planning Board has issued the reference letters to the relevant authorities to assist the Consultant to carry out the traffic surveys. The surveys are basically trying to capture two distinct groups of commuters. i.e. private mode users and public transport users. The characteristics of both categories of commuters will be captured through different surveys. Private users will be captured using the classified traffic volume counts (CTVS) and road side interview (RSI) surveys. Consultant will carry out these surveys for 16 hours for a period of 3 days across 13 identified locations. The list of these locations is given at Table 5.1

5.3. Next Steps


The 2nd Stage Report to be submitted by the Consultant to the Client would be Existing Condition Analysis Report, which is required to be submitted after two months of approval of this Inception Report. 2nd Stage Report will primarily be based on the analysis of secondary railway data, which the Consultant is already in the process of collection. The traffic survey is also in progress which will bring out the existing traffic scenario between Alwar and Delhi and the major transport nodes on the way like Rewari and Gurgaon. Topographic survey of the existing alignment is also likely to start in May 2010. Traffic data from field survey and the ticket sale data from the railways will enable traffic modelling and ridership forecast for base year and the horizon years. These will be used in preparing the 2nd and 3rd Stage Reports.
