Metro Ligero; Arequipa, Cusco, Trujillo y Piura podrían contar con sistemas de tranvías

Gracias a pegasus_

Lima, jun. 27. Con el objetivo de evitar el caos vehicular en provincias, tal como sucede en Lima Metropolitana, el Ministerio de Transportes y Comunicaciones (MTC) estudia la implementación de sistemas de tranvías en Arequipa, Cusco, Trujillo y Piura.
“Con la cooperación francesa estamos estudiando un sistema de tranvía en Arequipa y estamos iniciando los trámites con el Cusco, y más adelante estarán Trujillo y Piura”, señaló el director de la Oficina General de Planeamiento y Presupuesto del MTC, Omar Linares.


Sostuvo que en cuanto al transporte urbano el MTC hace un “mea culpa”, porque se dejó de lado ese tema por una cuestión de competencia municipal.
“Tratamos de no meternos, pero eso ha sido un craso error, porque los problemas han escalado a un punto en el cual se forma un caos para trasladarnos dentro de la ciudad de Lima y eso debe evitarse en provincias”, indicó.

Tren de Cercanías Region Lima Region Ica demandará inversión mayor a US$ 5,000 millones

Por: Christian Ninahuanca Abregú

Lima, jul. 6. El nuevo proyecto del Tren de Cercanías, que unirá Barranca con Ica, pasando por Lima, demandará una inversión mayor a los 5,000 millones de dólares, estimó hoy la Agencia de Promoción de la Inversión Privada (ProInversión).
“Todavía no hay un monto específico, pero si entiendo que debe ser un proyecto muy grande que estará por encima de los 5,000 millones de dólares”, sostuvo el director ejecutivo de ProInversión, Álvaro Quijandría.

Quijandría explicó que el proyecto del Tren de Cercanías se ha replanteado, pues existía una iniciativa privada que fue rechazada porque no correspondía al diseño que requiere el Estado peruano.
“Se está trabajando en el Ministerio de Transportes y Comunicaciones (MTC) para poder concretar la convocatoria y tener una APP con un diseño que vaya de Ica a la conexión sur del Metro de Lima y desde Barranca a la conexión norte del mismo Metro”, dijo.

Quijandría agregó que se incluiría una línea en paralelo que vaya cruzando la ciudad de Lima, con lo cual sería un proyecto de una magnitud bastante más grande y que debiera completar un sistema de transporte para Lima con las líneas 3 y 4 del Metro de Lima.
“Cuando estén listas las cuatro líneas del Metro de Lima, más el Tren de Cercanías, estará completo el sistema de transporte urbano y suburbano”, manifestó.

Quijandría anunció que la convocatoria para el Tren de Cercanías estaría lista este año, más no la adjudicación.
"Se requiere el estudio de factibilidad para luego abrir el proceso de diseño de una APP y pasar recién a la adjudicación", explicó.

Cabe indicar que hace poco el Ministerio de Transportes y Comunicaciones (MTC) indicó que el Tren de Cercanías consistiría en un solo proyecto, que iniciará en Barranca y llegará hasta Ica, pasando por Lima, y ya no estará conformado por tres iniciativas distintas como se planteó al inicio.

Sostuvo que la iniciativa privada planteada para el tramo Lima-Chincha fue desestimada y de la misma forma que ya no se considerará el tramo Lima-Chosica.
Un funcionario del MTC explicó que el proyecto del Tren de Cercanías comprende 476 kilómetros de rieles desde Barranca (en el norte chico) hasta Ica (sur).

China unveils first domestically-built bullet train


The first high-speed train designed and manufactured entirely in China debuted on the Beijing-Shanghai line on Monday. It boasts a top speed of 400 kilometers per hour (kph).
The high-speed train is called ‘Fuxing’ which means 'rejuvenation.' There are currently two models, CR400AF and CR400BF, operated by China Railway Corporation.


A CR400AF model departed from Beijing South Railway Station at 11:05 am local time for Shanghai. At the same time, a CR400BF model left Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station for Beijing.
The trains will run at a steady 350 kph meaning it takes three and a half hours to travel between Shanghai and Beijing. Currently, the travel time between the two cities by rail is around five hours.
The Beijing-Shanghai railway line is China's busiest, used by more than 50,000 passengers daily.


The Fuxing train has a sophisticated monitoring system which checks its performance in real time and automatically slows the train in case of emergencies or abnormal conditions.
The bullet trains provide free Wi-Fi and more legroom in all carriages.
According to Lu Dongfu, the general manager of the China Railway Corporation, the new train models were developed according to China's railway standards and technologies.

Beijing plans to export Fuxing trains to foreign countries, including Russia.
A senior researcher with the Chinese high-speed rail program, Jia Limin told China Daily the Fuxing Bullet Trains would operate on the Chinese network as well as on the Moscow-Kazan high-speed rail line in Russia.

El Primer Tren Ligero Electrico de Supercondensadores del Mundo SIN RIELES- China

380 pasajeros de capacidad

70KMH de Velocidad









INTRODUCTION

How does China solve the country’s prevalent public transportation problems? By unveiling the world’s first autonomous train transit system that runs on a virtual track.
In this video we will know about China’s New Autonomous Train that Doesn’t Even Need Rails for its truck.

CHINA’S AUTONOMOUS TRAIN TRANSIT

The world’s first rail less train was revealed last week in Zhuzhou in central China’s Hunan province. China’s state-owned enterprise called CRRC began developing the Autonomous Rail Rapid Transit back in 2013, to provide a solution to the country’s transportation problems in congested urban areas.

The Autonomous Rail Rapid Transit in short ART is some kind of cross between a train and a bus or tram. The ART runs on roads like a bus, but only on designated paths like a tram. It's modular like a train, and carriages can be added or removed to accommodate different numbers of people. Each carriage can fit about 100 passengers.

ENVIRONMENT FRENDLY VEHICLE


It is considered to be a cheaper alternative to other commute networks as well as being sustainable and environmentally friendly. With a cross appearance between a bus and a train, the autonomous train is composed of three carriages and spans 30 meters long.

It’s part of the intelligent rail express system by CRRC, which operates on rubber tires as opposed to traditional rail tracks. Means, it runs on rubber tires and has sensors to read the dimensions of the road and plan its route.

A pair of dashed white painted lines acts as virtual tracks which the autonomous train follows. The idea is that the 'smart train' could travel without a driver or rails.

CAPACITY AND CAPABILITY 

This ART system can be driven up to a maximum speed of 70 km/h and can carry up to 300 passengers in three carriages at a time. Providing a new and smart method for solving urban transport pressures, the autonomous vehicle is powered by electricity, which can journey to a distance 40 km when fully charged. It uses a lithium titanate battery and can embark on a substantial journey with only 10 minutes of charging.

Equipped with sensors, the autonomous train can process and analyze road dimensions then plan its own course. Very much like a bus-train hybrid vehicle running on a virtual track. CRRC can also add more carriages to the transit system in order to increase the passenger capacity. Moreover, the newly developed ART system can be integrated fairly easily into existing road infrastructures as it doesn’t require heavy construction works compared to rail track systems.

COST SAVING EFFORTS

In general, most medium-sized and smaller cities in China doesn’t have the budget to build expensive subway systems, or most of the time, they take too long to build.
According to Xinhua, it costs up to $102 dollar to build a kilometer of a subway track, as compared to about $2 million for a standard length ART bus.
So, this solution proves to be ideal because of its multiple advantages over conditional transit systems. It’s cheap, sustainable, and is able to transport a large volume of people in a fast and reliable manner.

PLANNING

The current ART system is still in its prototype stage and is driven manually by a human driver. However, the Zhuzhou city government in the Hunan province is expected to build a 6.5-kilometer ART line throughout its downtown. Operations of the autonomous train within the city will begin in 2018.
