LUCKNOW: Having realised that running a clean rapid transport system in UP could be a tough challenge, Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) has decided to purchase rolling stock (trains) to ensure scratch-free and stainless body.

Moreover, the coaches would also be skid-free to protect people from slipping while catching trains. All these would be first of its kind features in the country.

LMRC has already prepared bid document to invite applications for the rolling stock. The bid got approval from the board on Wednesday and would be issued in a couple of days. LMRC would be purchasing 80 coaches (20 trains each with four coaches) for the city-metro.

To ensure safety of passengers, LMRC is adopting communication-based train control system (CBTC) to allow trains to move within a specific distance safely. As soon as they trespass the limit, automatic brakes would be applied in trains.More info
