Addressing the gathering at an event on Traffic Safety Management System (TSMS), Union Road Transport Minister, Nitin Gadkari, said, “Our big plan to start Metrino on the 70-km stretch is on track. Next month we will issue the tender for the project”. The safety issues related to India’s first driverless pod taxi system, Metrino, between Dhaula Kuan in Delhi and Manesar in Haryana have finally been cleared. According to Gadkari, the Metrino project will help in decongesting the busy stretch.
He further said, “We are also expecting two projects to be completed in next two months which expected to take off 50% of Delhi’s traffic woes. These include the 14- lane Delhi-Meerut Expressway and the Eastern and Western Peripheral Expressways.” A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the Delhi Police and the Maruti Suzuki for implementing the TSMS from Dhaula Kuan to Sarai Kale Khan in a year’s time. The system is said to have cameras with high definition radar technology that would automatically detect violations like jumping of signals and over speeding.
