Default JOHN MCASLAN + PARTNERS wins international competition for Dhaka metro line


BANGLADESH: Dhaka Mass Transit Co has appointed John McAslan + Partners to design the 16 elevated stations and the depot for metro Line 6.

The architectural practice is working with Nippon Koei, Delhi Metro Rail Corp and Mott MacDonald. It is also undertaking urban integration studies with local architects Development Design Consultants ‘to embed the stations into their immediate and wider urban context’.

The first metro line in the city would run 20·1 km from Uttara North to Motijheel and is to be built in three phases. The foundation stone was laid in October 2013 and completion of all three phases is due by 2022. Ridership is forecast to be 505 000 passengers/day by 2025.

A metro system in Dhaka? I call bull$hit. The chumps back home are too incompetent to get a mega-project like this done.

Metro system in Dhaka sounds like a necessary dream.... It was needed last 30 years, if it didn't happen till now I have my doubts seeing it in my lifetime....

I can tell you right now from day two of buidling the first brick, it will be a homeless shelter :p....

If British were still ruling that place, I think we would have had one... we kicked em out too early i think.... should have waited till they built all these systems..

a mega-project means mega-churi for these politicians and contractors. so they will do all to get this project started or at leash get some cash to flow.

It would be really great for the city though if they do complete it.

about time! If people took the train to go to work, the traffic would not be such a severe problem.
