"Siemens Mobility has been working with Indian mass transit operator DMRC for more than 15 years and understands their commitment to ensure it offers passengers modernized intelligent infrastructure that will meet the capacity demands of their growing working populations. These enhancements on Delhi's second longest and busiest line will provide not only increased capacity and drastically shorter commute times, but also will provide environmental benefits, making the cities a better place to live and work," stated Michael Peter, CEO Siemens Mobility.
The Government has been taking steps to reduce emissions from mass transport and encourage residents to take greener forms of transport, the ongoing metro project being an important component. This expansion also makes it easier for hassle-free commuting between Delhi Metro's Blue Line and Noida Metro's Aqua Line.
The Siemens Mobility technology includes Automatic Train Protection system for trains, Central Operation control center with Automatic Train Control & Supervision, Electronic Interlocking and Trackside equipment.
