  • The urban rail sector has evolved at a steady pace. The regulatory clarity and scope for technological innovation that the sector offers has kept the stakeholder interest high. The network has increased significantly, up from 81 km in 2006 to about 700 km operational at present, with about 450 km added over the past six years. So far, 13 cities have an operational metro network, and this is expected to increase to over 25 cities in the next few years. Highlighting a plenty of opportunities, the report of the Taskforce on the National Infrastructure Pipeline puts forth a capital investment target of $78 billion till 2025 for metro projects.
  • However, Covid-19 has impacted construction activity in the sector. More importantly, the suspension of operations has resulted in huge revenue losses for metro rail corporations. The Delhi, Kochi, Bengaluru, Chennai and Lucknow metro rail corporations have together incurred losses of around Rs 20 billion on account of suspended operations. The resumption of services in some cities will step up demand, albeit slowly.
  • In the current context, embracing the post Covid-19 requirements has become crucial. Technology is now going to play a bigger role. Thermal scanners are being deployed at metro stations to test the temperature of commuters and warning signals will be given in case of crowding. Stations are also being equipped with foot-operated elevators to avoid the spread of Covid-19.
  • Overall, the indigenous manufacturing of rolling stock and signalling systems is gaining prominence, with the setting up of a number of manufacturing facilities and expansion of the existing ones. Further, the fare payments industry is undergoing developments such as the adoption of a variety of payment methods, especially interoperable electronic payment methods such as QR codes and contactless ticketing, smartcards, bank cards, mobile wallets and near-field communication (NFC)-enabled devices.
  • On the financing side, reliance on public and multilateral funds continues to grow. While the PPP experience in the sector has not been very encouraging, the opportunities emanating for private players are aplenty, particular in the O&M space. Focus on generating more non-fare revenue is also growing. Options such as train wrapping; licensing of food kiosks; branding of commercial outlets/shopping malls inside stations and concessions for commercial/residential developments; and station branding are being explored.
  • Land acquisition, clearances, right of way, engineering issues, geotechnical challenges and changes in scope are some of the other concerns facing the segment. In order to curtail operating costs, several metro systems have been devising ways to reduce energy consumption and promote the use of renewable energy. The use of regenerative breaking systems, VVVF drives and LED lighting for trains and stations are some of the steps in this direction.
  • Meanwhile, the overall success of metro rail projects in Tier I cities has led to a growing demand for similar systems in Tier II and Tier III cities. Alternative systems such as metrolite and metroneo have been proposed in some of the cities with lower expected ridership.
  • New concepts and technologies such as mobility-as-a-service (MaaS), internet of trains, big data, predictive maintenance, and renewable energy to power trains and stations are also being explored.
  • The mission of this conference is to highlight the key trends and developments in the segment, discuss the medium- to long-term impact of Covid-19, identify the key issues and concerns, showcase noteworthy projects and emerging technologies. The conference will also examine new opportunities in the development, design and construction of the urban rail system as well as in the deployment of advanced rolling stock, signalling, telecommunications and fare collection systems.
