Anyways that video was not about specific projects within MPT redevelopment, it was about Over all design philosophy, mostly focused on what he calls Redevelopment site 1.
Ya'll Nibbiars The overall plan is now different than the HBS Design I had the revised plans of the southern section.

let me clarify, reason for posting that video is that I was more interested in design philosophy not actual designs.

by the way, this is happening quite frequently now. I post something, you reply in negatory and discussion goes in a different tangent.

Ya'll Nibbiars and the newer design have taken influence and philosophy from the ASLA and not from the HBS Design.

Purvanchal express way per km construction cost(excluding land acquisition cost) comes to around 4.7 million $ , how does it compare to rest of the world?

with land acquisition cost it comes to 8.7 million $ per km.

keep in mind this is an elevated expressway.

Including land acquisition cost, it comes to Rs 65 crore per km whereas in the world benchmark super power land of Banga-jhatus, the cost of only expressway is Rs 175 crore per Km. 175/65 = Bangas are 2.7 times richer than us, thus proved.

The construction cost of the Dhaka-Mawa-Bhanga Expressway, the only expressway so far built in Bangladesh, was Tk200 crore per kilometre

Nice trick to inflate GDP numbers as well as corruption.

Just asking how much you think cost per km will come down if govt had passed land acquisition bill ? Prices of land are only going up north year on year either its close to highway or barren land in middle of nowhere . How much of land would have been taken from private individuals for such projects and how much for state govt land holdings ? aren't inflated project cost are better way to transfer some money from centre to state govt?

haven’t looked at it recently, but I think whatever increased compensation GoI wanted to give thru land acquisition bill they giving it anyways.

To over come land acquisition costs issue, they are mapping the expressway taking land value into account using satellite imagery. this is why you will see Delhi Mumbai expressway cutting thru small hills/mountains.

Donno about the thrird question.

UP expressways are fully funded by UP gov, not central govt. NHAI funded expressway continue to remain as central govt assets, transfer of central govt funds to state govt doesn’t arise.

Ya'll Nibbiars The actual cost is much lower than said here but still higher in Bangladesh. The Samruddhi Maha Marge has costed around less than 70 crores per KM and ofcoures the 5 crores per km increase is due to many sections spans through extreme mountainous regions. The cost of construction of The Expressway in India is less than most of the world.

The Jalgaon Nanded Expresway is estimated to cost around 50 crores per Km the lowest in recent times.

Ya'll Nibbiars yeah and also mostly plain region and the construction cost of 5,500 crores which is also the lowest in the recent times. The cost Increases if the terrain is difficult. In Himalaya it would be astronomical even to lay a 4 lane highway. And even in valley like kullu as the environment need to be taken care of with or without environmentalist.
