LRT: Stations depend Location on "Park and Ride" Possibilities
18 February 2013 - lexpress.mu
Nothing is done regarding the route of the light rail in Mauritius. These are criteria circulation around the stations that will determine the way of the subway.
According to sources familiar with the matter, "three or four options were offered" on the various stations. But it depends on the possibility of applying the principle of "park and ride".
In addition to appropriate space for passengers will park their cars for the day before taking the subway, the impact of this alternative mode of transport on the surrounding traffic must also be taken into consideration.
"If there are 1000 cars which agglomerate, should the venue have adequate road infrastructure," says L'express source. Even more than the mass of cars will add the feeder bus.
We must therefore await the outcome of a "survey" on various sites before a decision is taken.
In the meantime, the procedures to find a private partner continues. From Monday 18 February, the exercise of expression of interest (EOI) will be open and any interested parties have until April 12 to express their interest. Interested parties will each have a username and password to be used on the website created for this purpose.
Procedures will pass another milestone with the request for proposal, which will be short a shortlist of the best deals of the EOI received from September.
