New Delhi, India
The Delhi Metro’s showcase Airport Express Corridor, connecting the Indira Gandhi International Airport to the heart of the city, was rolled out for the public yesterday. This will be the first line in the country to be mapped on GIS to enhance safety, maintenance and traffic regulation. Mapping the corridor on GIS will help in mobilising emergency services in case of a blast or fire on the train.
Delhi Airport Metro Express Private Limited, the company operating the line, has mapped all the emergency services, including fire stations, police stations, hospitals etc along the alignment.
Built at a cost INR 57,000 million, the Airport Metro Express, this is the first corridor in the country to come up on public-private-partnership model.
