The metro rail system introduced in major Indian cities in recent years has resulted in significant improvements in the country's transportation infrastructure and intra-city connectivity. This first-of-its-kind study maps the story of India's largest mass rapid transit system and uses data,analysis, and first-hand information to provide a comprehensive and authentic analysis of the urban transport scenario in Indian cities. Covering metro projects proposed and undertaken across the major Indian cities of Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chennai, and Mumbai, among others, this volume focuses on the complexities of project planning. In addition, it also looks at how large cities across the globe effectively addressed theirurban transport problems to provide a comparative view. The study also helps to distil important lessons for other infrastructure projects undertaken in developing countries.
M. Ramachandran, a senior bureaucrat, was Secretary to the Government of India, Ministry of Urban Development. Currently, he is working in an advisory capacity in the areas of infrastructure, urban affairs, and project planning.
