    Sydney Metro: Metro Experience Day at the new Tallawong Station

    October 16, 2019


    [Music] The station day was all about showcasing our facilities to those in the community with mobility constraints – hearing, visual cognitive – to just show them how easy it is to come in and use this service. The whole purpose of the new metro is that ease of being able to transfer from a car or something in the street, right through to getting onboard the train and to your destination. For the customer, it’s how they get to the station, what they do when they get to the end of their journey, how they move around. So we’ve focused on making sure all of those parts come together for the customer. [Music] A lift at every station and when you get down to the platform, the safety of the screen doors. If you’re someone with a disability, if you’re someone with a young child, that sense that there is a very low risk environment moving in and around. [Music] Could you ask one of your station attendants to assist? Over. [Music] As you move around on the train, you’ll see that there are some new features such as dedicated spaces for wheelchairs spread throughout the train. We’ve got areas where parents with prams can step on and put them in an area which is out of the way of majority of the customers. We’ve got help points at every door, [Music] and it is an eual train for everyone. You can move around whether you’re in a wheelchair or whether you have other disabilities. It is quite easy to move around on this train. [Music] You can see the full length of the train, the sense of security around because everyone knows where everyone is on the train. [Music]

    now let’s talk about the rail connectivity now lets talk about rail connectivity whenever we talk about North East Railway we need to talk about one person that is Suresh Prabhu the changes in his three years tenure it was made in North East India were never there in 70 years before there were many projects which were started by UPA government, Vajpayee but all these were under construction and completed in his tenure it is in his tenure in which why water filled states were converted into broad gauge from meter gauge and 29 new trains were launched which connector North East India to all the other parts of India and the important of it is Tripura Sundari express way as this will connect Agartala to Delhi directly there are many projects in northeast which are under construction and many which have been completed like Agartala to badarpur distance railway line of 227km is converted to Broad gauge from metre gauge and from longding to silchar line is also converted to broad gauge still there are many Railway projects which are under construction in North East like Agartala to Akhaura line, for which there was a pact signed with bangladesh this line will go to Kolkata from Agartala via Akhuara which is a Bangladeshi area the old route to Calcutta was 1590 kilometres but due to this new route the distance will be only 499 kilometres helping the travellers a great deal bairabi to sairang foundation was laid in 2016 after the completion of this railway line it will connect all the capitals of the Northeast States and it is estimated to be completed by 2020 March railway track from agartala to ashuganj is also being laid whose total length will be 54 kilometres there are 20 such Railway projects which are under construction m13 projects are there which will convert metre gauge to Broad gauge now let’s talk about the airport project the largest airport of North East region is in Guwahati known as LGBI airport this is being extended new integrated terminals are being constructed the total cost of which is said to be 1200 crores and estimated completion is by 2021 apart from this there is one Gill field airport which is being constructed in sikkim this will be the first airport of Sikkim the total land area of which is 440 hectares and it is built at an altitude of 4900 feet this will be India’s 5th highest airport and in May 2018 the commercial licences of which have already been sold which means this Airport is completely ready and by December 2018 this will be launching the estimated cost of Pakyong airport is 300 crores apart from this there is another airport being constructed that is in Arunachal Pradesh this is the tezu airport and this is almost ready and this airport can be launched by September 2018 and we can see two new airports in North East region in coming years and LGBI airport’s Integrated terminal is being enhanced and also Shillong Airport runways are being extended till now we have seen rail connectivity Road connectivity and air connectivity now let us dive into the smart cities in the 100 Smart City mission North East cities are also included and 465 projects have already been identified and approved the cost of the construction of these projects is 14,120 crores 826 Crores for brahmaputra river development project and 409 crore rupees for Kohima roadway project apart from these two cities imphal Agartala, namchi, phasigat, aizwai, Gangtok are also included recently Shillong city has also been included in 100 Smart City mission each city will be allotted rupees thousand crores for the development apart from this Guwahati metro rail is being constructed in Assam whose Foundation stone was laid in 2016 at an estimated cost of 20000 crores but there was no permission taken from central government and in India if you have to lay a railway track you need a central government permission now a new government has formed and also a new draft is being prepared which will be ready by 2018 and the state government can ask for permission in 2019 and by 2020 work of this metro rail can be started so these are the projects which are under construction in the North East but friends wait the video hasn’t yet finished apart from this there are National schemes which are helping Northeast India in development and that is AMRUT (Atal Mission for Rejuvination of Urban Transformation) under which water is used in sewage problems will be solved Friends there are 43 projects which have been completed in North East. at a cost of 150 crores swachh Bharat mission is also helping North East development and North East India can be open defecation free by 2018 December and via saubhagya scheme Northeastern rural areas are being electifired so this is the development going on in North East India GDP growth rate of north east in 2012 was 15% and in 2013 it became 17% and the speed at which the investment is being done in North East the GDP growth rate will reach 20% by 2022 currently Northeast GDP is 85 billion dollars and by 2022 it will reach 170 billion dollars we hope that Northeast is also develops rapidly that’s it for this video post your opinions in

    Japan’s Night Train: The Sleeper Car Adventure 寝台列車サンライズ出雲 ★ ONLY in JAPAN #32

    October 16, 2019


    so finally arrived in Tokyo Station and
    this is one of 2 sleeper trains in Japan. A really
    special experience and it’s going to be traveling 950
    kilometers from here to your station all the way
    to IZUMO this is called the Sunrise IZUMO
    I’ve been on SHINKANSEN bullet trains have been on local trains
    that are really slow I’ve been on subways I’ve been on monorails I’ve never been on one of
    these This is gonna be fun The IZUMO sunrise express departs
    daily at 10 p.m. from Tokyo Station it’s a long ride no food service on board there is a shower Tourists visiting with the JR Rail Pass only need a reservation and it’s free Me? Here’s my ticket. Car 12, Row 4, seat B Is it a seat or is it a bed let’s take a look I’ve been on sleeper trains in europe
    India and even the trans Mongolian railroad to moscow but I’ve never seen a layout like this
    really Japanese style Take your shoes off It seems a little cramped It sorta reminds me of camping, staying
    in a tent or maybe even a capsule hotel These curtains to separate everything have a reading light I can shut this off, and here is a fan pretty cool time to say farewell to the city Big skies, fresh air and new experiences await on the Sea of Japan side only 12 hours to go Goodbye Tokyo let’s have a closer look at this
    Japanese style sleeper train 14 cars have go to IZUMO have go to SHIKOKU splitting in Okayama the single sleepers also haven’t upper and lower birth these have doors pajamas pillow slippers and a big window here’s the bed an electrical outlet alarm clock radio and light control comfortable here’s a twin compartment I’m staying in the NOBI-NOBI- Zaseki it’s an open area for laying down but
    it’s considered a seat a little hard very little privacy but it
    saves on a night at a hotel take off your shoes as I said
    japanese-style everything is super clean this sink for brushing your teeth the toilet spotless this train is equipped with the shower
    available to all passengers So I’m in the shower room, the shower part Its 320 yen. There’s a limited number
    available so buy one as soon as you get on the train it’s 6 minutes. I better hurry up. Everything you need here. There’s thesoap There’s the shampoo. They even have the adjustable lever so you can adjust the hight of the shower so really convenient for tall people. There is even an auto clean feature for when you are done The trains run in back and forth which is really interesting the changing room is pretty small. Better
    hit the shower Make sure you adjust the temperature first. 6 minutes goes by pretty quickly It’s freaky. It’s counting down as if it’s going to Y’know I can’t help but stare at that
    clock counting down the pressures on Can I rinse off that shampoo in time? live to ride another day I really like this its it’s enough room for me to sleep
    it’s kind of a carpet I get my own window which is really
    great There is a curtain in the front for checking clothers.A little bit of privacy And the wall separates you from the person next to you So you have a little bit of privacy here. The NOBI NOBI ZASEKI has sheets but
    no pillow but I’ve got that covered ready for bed while I slumber on the rails let’s take
    a look at why anyone would go to IZUMO? Here is Tokyo on the Sea of Japan side is the Sannin
    area it’s considered the birthplace of Japan There is IZUMO Taisha. one of Japan’s most important shrines. Lake Shinji and Matsue, a beautiful
    castle town then there’s the crossroads City, YONAGO with beaches and onsen and overlooking it all DAISEN, a stunning FUJI like
    volcano with loads of outdoor activities The SANIN area is loaded need more reason to visit? this dream just keeps getting better and
    better check this out we’re almost there Ohayo-Gozaimasu IN Japan the Sun rises
    around 4:30 in the morning during the summer there’s no food service but a vending
    machine can handle thirsty travelers Grab a canned coffee and head to the
    lounge car with your breakfast don’t forget to buy something in Tokyo
    Station before you board I bought a tonkatsu bento breaded pork cutlets sauce and rice at
    Tokyo Station it’s an EKi- Ben. Eki meaning station Ben for Bento Inside, there is everything you need. Chopsticks, sauce. and wet napkin rice with the sour umeboshi plum on top and the breaded pork cutlet put the
    sauce on and chow down. Don’t forget to say, before eating The view just got a lot better. an empty stomach is no way to enjoy a
    train ride so don’t forget your eki ben, and never
    ride alone again The cool summer morning Fog off the rice paddies trapped by the
    surrounding hills mysterious mesmerizing reason to ride the rails at a normal
    speed at Okayama the train splits The break is fast is there enough time to get a drink from
    that vending machine maybe maybe maybe not The fast vending machine run couldn’t be done its easy to make friends in the lounge
    and share the beautiful Japanese landscape as and rolls by the big
    windows the sky reflex off the clear water in the
    rice paddies stunning the train follows a river most of the way. The trip and view from Okayama to Izumo is the best part when you see Dyson that meansIZUMO is not far away back at the NOBI NOBI ZASEKI, the
    landscape continues to roll by most of the passengers get off at YONAGO
    and Matsue a moment to reflect as we near our final
    destination finally IZUMO trains are a big deal in Japan really is special linking one side of
    Japan with the other so if you come to Japan with the rail
    pass and want to see an area that’s a real
    hidden treasure of attractions ride the rails overnight to the SANIN
    area do it for the experience and what’s
    waiting on the other side see you again SUNRISE IZUMO
