Nonsense alignments

 Interestingly, some of the Scomi proposed monorail alignments seem to make more sense than the CTTP ones! Somebody convince me why the CTTP ring road alignment for a monorail makes any sense?

Commuter Rail Markings on the map? Inspired by NR Map?

The map has marking s 'commuter rail' on all the IR lines as envisioned in NR report. Wondering if the map has taken the commuter rail inspiration from Praja's report.

Not sure if this map is accurate /updated --

1) Metro reach-4 is shown terminating at RV rd in ph-1 whereas it has been extended upto Puttenahalli.

2) Metro reach-2 is shown extending upto Kengeri in ph-1 whereas it terminates much before at Mys rd.

Ring road alignment totally non-sense

BTM on the ORR is the main bottleneck which takes around 30 minutes to pass during peak hour. No Monorail for that stretch, rather we have monorail on the ORR and not the Marenahalli main road which is the stretch of people movement.

To make it sense, monorail should touch the Silkboard junction from where BRTS starts. It doesn't make any sense to end it somewhere on BG Road.

Couple of observations on the routing:

  1. There appears to be a section on NH4/Old Madras Rd where it runs right alongside NM before it turns onto 80' Rd. A station right there the would be a perfect changeover from NM to the Monorail
  2. Isn't it interesting that NM AND the first Mono line likely to be built first (source: DNA E-paper) just happen to go past Vidhana/Vikasa Soudha? Instead wouldn't aligning the 'Green Line' with KG Rd (it currently appears to use NR Rd) better serve the area. Moreover, you could still extend the 'Blue Line' (using NR Rd) till Hudson Circle linking up the two.
