India’s booming Urban Mobility Sector
India’s Urban Mobility segment is booming with some new Metro Railway projects under active implementation and many more under planning. As per Government’s plan India is expected to have 30 operational metro systems by 2030 covering approx. 2,300 Km.
Similarly at present 2 Dedicated Freight Corridors (DFC) are under active implementation, namely Western (1,468 Km) and Eastern (1,760 Km) DFC’s. 4 new DFC’s covering approx. 6,163 Km are under planning phase and another 2 Corridors have been proposed.
Significance of RDSO Approval for Cords Cable
Cords has been earlier supplying various cables to projects where RDSO approval was not required and has been doing good business in the Railway Mobility segment. Signalling is a major part of any Urban Mobility project and is of critical importance with respect to Safety and Reliability of the whole system. Cords already has enough experience in this quality critical segment.
Now since some projects have a mandatory requirement for RDSO approval Cords shall be able to offer its Quad Signalling cables to all upcoming and new up-gradation Railway projects such as Dedicated Freight Corridors and Metro-Rail Projects in India.
