Pre-feasibility study to be undertaken for Mathura-Vrindavan Mass Transit System
The tender has been awarded to Feedback Infra
The Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA), the statutory authority under the Railway Ministry, will conduct a pre-feasibility study of the Mathura-Vrindavan Mass Transit System in Uttar Pradesh.
The tender of the pre-feasibility study has been awarded by RLDA to Feedback Infra.
The purpose behind the pre-feasibility study is to assess the development as well as monetisation of a Mass Transit System in around 12 km meter gauge track between Mathura and Vrindavan.
As per RLDA, the 12 km gauge track is not widely used and has a right of way (ROW) of around 20-22 mtr.
The pre-feasibility study will not be limited to the identification of land banks that are available between Mathura and Vrindavan track as well as the monetisation potential of operational assets at that place.
Feedback Infra will conduct a detailed study on traffic analysis, monetisation of project potential, recommendation of transport solution, as well as estimation of project financial and economic returns.
The duration for completion of the pre-feasibility study is 40 days.
The proposed mass transit solution between Mathura and Vrindavan will comprise a two-third lane road along with a bridged metro/bus transit system/light rail.
The project also involves development of parking zones and commercial establishments such as hotels, flea markets, and eateries in the region.
The project will also create employment opportunities and promote tourism of the region.
