A stronger push has also been given to urban mobility by focusing on improving access facilities for passenger convenience in  places with high urban density like railway stations and  airports.

The railways have received a major thrust from the government as 600 stations have been identified for upgradation by the railways. All the railway stations with more than 25,000 footfalls will have escalators. Such upgrades will undoubtedly help move people faster at railway stations and make the entire travelling experience more convenient.

The proposal to enhance airport handling capacity five-times to one billion trips and the allocation of   Rs. 2.04 lakh crore for the development of the 99 identified smart cities will also catalyse the growth plans of the country.

We at thyssenkrupp are looking forward at being an active partner to meet  India’s urbanisation and sustainability goals.
