3 Metro Lines in Kochi, Nagpur, Delhi targeted for commissioning in next 100 Days

New Delhi, Jul 23 (UNI) Government on Tuesday said three Metro Lines in Kochi, Nagpur and Delhi are targeted for commissioning in next 100 days.
''Three metro lines (21 km) have been targeted for commissioning in next 100 days which includes 5.6 km, Maharaja College to Thykodam, Kochi Metro; 4.3 km, Dwarka to Najafgarh, Delhi Metro and 11 km, Lokmanya Nagar to Sitabuldi, Nagpur Metro,'' Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs said in a statement.
''Till May, 2014, about 247 km of metro rail was operational in seven cities (Kolkata, Delhi, Ghaziabad, Noida, Gurugram, Bengaluru and Mumbai) in the country,'' the statement said.
Now, 657 km of metro rail is operational in 18 cities namely Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad, Gurugram, Faridabad, Ballabhgarh, Bahadurgarh, Jaipur, Lucknow, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Nagpur, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai and Kochi.
About 900 km of new metro rail/Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) is under construction in 27 cities.
Standards for Light Urban Rail Transit system called ''Metrolite'' has been issued by the Ministry on 15.07.2019. This is suitable for cities with maximum 15000 passenger movement per hour per direction which suit most of the cities.
State Governments have been requested to adopt Metrolite as a prime mode of mass transit in smaller cities. Cost of its construction is much less than (about 50 per cent of elevated and 20 per cent of underground) of high capacity metro system.
This system is most viable and sustainable due to its very less capital and operation and maintenance cost.
