Government standardizing norms for Metro Rail Projects

By Accommodation Times News Service

The Urban Development ministry is working on to set standardized norms for Metro Rail Projects across the country and six sub-committees appointed by it will soon submit their final reports in this regard.

“We are working on for standardization of Metro projects in the country. We have formed six sub-committees looking after Metro’s different aspects like signaling system, rolling stocks, automated fare collection, bridges.

“Some committees have submitted their reports, they have been given certain feedbacks and are working on putting the final papers,” said Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) director Prakash Singh said at a seminar on Monorail and Light Rail Transit (LRT).

The decision was taken because most of the new metro projects have different working specifications. Most of the manufacturers are foreign companies. Unless they get an idea of Metro rail in India and what is the demand, they won’t have a clear picture on how to carry out the projects, Singh said.
