New Delhi: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC)’s Training Institute is going to conduct a special training programme on ballast-less tracks for the professionals of urban rail based systems across the nation and the neighbouring countries.
This three day programme will focus on various aspects of installation as well as maintenance of ballastless tracks, which are now being used by most Metro systems including Delhi Metro. The ballastless technology facilitates the movement of trains in high speed and requires much less maintenance. Most high speed railway networks across the world use this technology.
The advanced training programme, scheduled to be held from the 10th to the 12th of August 2015, is expected to attract professionals from all other urban rail based systems in India as well as the neighbouring countries. The inaugural edition of the training programme was organized last year.
