INFORMATION FOR APPLICANT

Brief Description of Assignment : Dhaka is the capital city of Bangladesh. This city is one of the most densely populated cities in the world. About 18 million people live in this mega city. Though the city is expanding every year in terms of area and population but its transportation system has failed to cope with the pressure. Hence, tremendous traffic congestion has become part and parcel of city life. For this reason every day millions of working hour is lost. Traffic congestion is eating away the comfort of city dwellers and siphoning off the economy of the city as well as the country. Efficient & reliable transport system is the life line of any densely populated capital city like Dhaka. Approved Strategic Plan (STP) adopted different surface transportation system for Dhaka like MRT, BRT and Railway etc., to reduce the traffic congestion. An organized transport system should be developed with particular emphasis on public transport carrier. The rapid population growth of Dhaka city warrants better, comfortable & reliable public transport system. Circular rail can meet this demand in a better & efficient manner. People from one corner of the city will be able to travel to other corner without even entering main business corridor of the city. This will reduce unintentional intrusion of people into the busy area of Dhaka city. This will also facilitate easy entry & exit of sub-urban people of Gazipur, Narayangonj, Keranigonj, Savar & Munshigonj. Recognizing these facts, Government has decided to build a circular rail around Dhaka city using mainly flood protection embankment. The proposed project is expected to connect “Tongi-Dhour-Uttara-Birulia-Dhaka National Zoo-Gabtoli-Sankar-Nawabgonj-Babubazar-Sadarghat-Shyampur-Fatulla-Chasara-Choudhury Bari-Shiddhirgonj-Demra-Kayetpara-Beraid-Purbachal Road-Termuk-Tongi” around the Dhaka City. Construction of circular rail around Dhaka city will not only reduce traffic congestion but also enhance the economic growth eventually increasing GDP of the country. The Proposed feasibility study is to determine the viability of construction of circular rail line around Dhaka city so that an investment project can be taken to reduce the traffic congestion. The specific objectives of the Feasibility Study for construction of Circular Rail Line around Dhaka City are to: • Find out best possible alignment for the Circular Rail Line from the alternatives. • Device a pragmatic system to run the Circular Rail Line. • Identify appropriate technology for Civil, Mechanical, Electrical & signaling Procurement. • Enumerate specifications for civil construction materials, Rolling stocks, Electric traction etc. (i. e. for all Civil, Mechanical, Electrical & Electronics materials and Signaling system.) • Find out whether the project will be economically, socially and financially viable. • Provide an organizational structure to run the Circular Rail Line.
