The metro fever is catching up in India. The smart city mission has only added to the momentum. As per recent statistics from the Ministry of Urban Development, India should have metro rail running over 1000km in a decade. Both the government and the people have realised the importance of affordable mass rapid transport systems like monorail, metro rail and BRTs. With the success of Kolkata and Delhi metros and the later Mumbai and Bangalore ones, there are a number of projects at varying stages all over India indicating the preference for metro rail. Among all these is the Hyderabad metro rail, the largest elevated metro rail project on PPP. The project has been experiencing challenges including the development of commercial places to reach the target of 18.5 million sqft. But the focus of the story on Hyderabad metro in this issue is on the technological highlights of the project and most importantly the vision of the State government in using this transport system to bring in life style changes in Hyderabad.

It was encouraging that at the recently concluded Green Building Congress in Hyderabad, a Green rating systems for MRTS was released. The rating system is a tool to enable new rail based MRTYS to apply green concepts during design & construction to reduce environmental impact that is measurable.

We have an interesting essay on the use of Hot-in-place recycling in road construction which is quite cost effective and widespread in the US. The process uses less heat & material and generates less greenhouse gas.

Only a few months are left for the 4th TrafficInfraTech Expo in New Delhi which will have a special section Parking – Parking InfraTech. As the booking of booths are continuing, the visitor registration too has started in full swing.
