On the move
Rapid urbanization, population expansion and economic growth have placed tremendous pressure on India’s existing, aging infrastructure. Now, with projects like Rapid MetroRail Gurgaon (RMGL), India’s urban infrastructure is transforming.
Rapid MetroRail Gurgaon, India’s first fully privately financed metro system, connects the Cyber City business district in Gurgaon to the Delhi Metro rail network through an interchange station at Sikandarpur. Walkways and skywalks connect the buildings in Cyber City to provide commuters with easy access to the metro station.
Metro passengers enjoy a comfortable ride with 99.8 percent punctuality. A passenger information system provides real-time data. The train control system ensures 120 seconds peak time headway.
State-of-the-art transportation solutions from Siemens include a signaling system, third rail electrification, rolling stock and major depot workshop equipment. Siemens also oversaw the design, system integration and interface management.
The RMGL project helps reduce traffic congestion, air pollution, and noise levels, in line with Siemens’ vision of transforming cities for the better through sustainable technology.
“Rapid MetroRail is a landmark public transportation project and has given us an opportunity to prove our prowess as technology partner to provide state of the art transportation solutions on turnkey basis. Supporting infrastructural development in India through such projects resonate our vision of transforming cities for the better through sustainable technology.”Mr. Tilak Raj Seth, Executive Vice-President and Country Division Lead – Mobility, Siemens Ltd.
