The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has approved and finalized three sets of colours for its Monorail fleet divided in three basic elements of Nature. The Mother earth trains, Nature trains and the Sky trains. The colour pallet has been recommended by National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad.
The three colours finalized are Maroon, Green and Sky-Blue. “Each identifies an element of nature. Maroon celebrates Mother Earth, Green associates with environment and Blue promises an experience where sky is the limit!” said Mr. Ratnakar Gaikwad, a visibly happy Metropolitan Commissioner. “The aerodynamic design of the Monorail simply indicates the speed with which this vibrant city runs”, added Mr.Gaikwad.
The National Institute of Design has not only recommended the entire exterior and interior colour scheme of monorail but also the finishing of the interior. The side panels will be white and the end panels and the flooring will match the overall color scheme. The vertical and horizontal hand rails and handles will be of stainless steel. The seats will also be of stainless steel of brushed surface finish with long and continuous benches for flexibility in seating capacity. Considering the environmental conditions and visibility criterion, wide window glasses will have greenish tint.
