Metro Neo - The Perfect Mobility Solutions

NAGPUR 16: Metro Neo serves to be a perfect mobility solution, especially in cities with high traffic density during peak hours, observed Dr Brijesh Dixit, MD, Maha Metro, today. He was talking at a round table conference organized on the second day of the 12th Urban Mobility India (UMI) conference on `Mass Transport for All', presently on at Lucknow, Uttar Padesh.

Addressing the gathering, Dr Dixit said that, such a project is ideal for cities with `Peak Hour Peak Direction Traffic'  (PHPDT) between 5,000 and 15,000, he said. The project is being executed for the first time in the country in Nasik, he said. The cost of Metro Neo project is much less as compared to the conventional Metro Rail projects, he added.

Metro Neo is an ideal solution to the urban mobility problems, Dr Dixit observed. The state government has cleared Metro Neo project for Nasik and Maha Metro has been entrusted with the responsibility of executing this project. In November 2018, state government had entrusted the responsibility of safe, comfortable and reliable transport solution to Maha Metro.

The central government as exploring the measures to provide mass transport facility for cities with population of 20-30 lakh. After thinking of a number of options, the Union Government, on 21 August 2019, set up a committee chaired by Maha Metro MD Dr Brijesh Dixit. The committee was entrusted with the responsibility of working on various aspects of providing a tyre-based metro service.
