Why does India not have trams?
The future of mobility: Metro for millions
India, the second most populous country after China with 1.3 billion inhabitants, struggles with an enormous volume of traffic every day. With increasing prosperity and the growth of a well-educated middle class, the number of cars has multiplied in the past few decades. In 1980 there were only about 4.5 million vehicles on India's roads, in 2015 the authorities counted 210 million - almost fifty times more. In the metropolis of Delhi alone there are seven million vehicles, cars or motor rickshaws - not counting trucks. The result: the streets are chronically congested, especially during rush hour. A two-hour drive from your front door to work is more the rule than the exception. In order to get the masses under control, the traffic in Delhi has been heavily regulated: trucks are only allowed to drive through the city at night between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. Nevertheless, during the day traffic jams even on the 12-lane main roads. In economic terms, these traffic jams mean enormous losses because millions of people lose valuable working time in traffic jams. "The Indian government has recognized this problem and is now promoting functioning mobility as an important building block for the rapid development of the nation," says Amitabh Bhagwat, who is responsible for turnkey projects at Siemens in Mumbai. “She sees local public transport and a turn away from motorized individual transport as the solution. It is crucial to get people to work quickly. "
In many major cities in India, completely new metro lines were built in record time, a good 200 kilometers in Delhi alone.
