MUMBAI: Real-time monitoring of images for safety of women passengers, obstruction deflection device (ODD), driverless train technology are some of the unique features that trains on the three upcoming Metro corridors will boast of. To top it, an Indian firm will be behind the latest world-class facilities. An official said there will be a minimum of 29 IP (internet protocol)-based cameras per train, which could be increased later. The CCTV saloon surveillance system will have facility for real-time monitoring from a control centre. Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has awarded the contract to Bengaluru-based BEML (Bharat Earth Movers Ltd) for procurement of 378 Metro coaches for Dahisar-DN Nagar, DN Nagar to Mankhurd via Bandra) and Dahisar-Andheri via highway corridors at Rs 3,015 crore or Rs 7.98 crore per coach. MMRDA has claimed a saving of Rs 1,100 crore due to competitive bidding.Metropolitan commissioner RA Rajeev stated, “A major milestone has...
been achieved with placement of rolling stock contract. We are confident our rolling stock will be of world class standards having latest passenger comfort, safety and energy efficiency features. Our focus will be to ensure speedy delivery now.” MMRDA spokesperson Dilip Kawathkar said, “The rakes will be designed for advanced Unattended Train Operation mode, though operators will run the trains for the first few years.” The six-coach trains will accommodate nearly 2,400 passengers. The trains will be equipped with ‘Obstruction Deflection Device (ODD)’ which will push away small obstacles on the track that can cause derailment. Delivery of the first prototype train set is expected next year.
