Overall, around 38 kilometers of the project’s double-track route, two depots and 23 three-car metro trains will be equipped with the system. The CBTC solution allows trains to operate at headways of 90 seconds or less.
Nagpur is the largest city in the geographical center of India and has over two million inhabitants. Over the past decade alone, the city’s population has grown by some 17 percent. Less than five percent of all inner-city trips are currently made on public transportation systems. The number of cars, motorbikes and bicycles in the city is growing much faster than the population. The two new metro lines will help prevent a threatening traffic gridlock. The east-west corridor of the metro line will have 19 stations, and the north-south corridor will have 17 stations and connect with the city’s airport.
