MMRDA deploys drones in metro projects

    Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority
    It is perhaps for the first time in the country that drones are being deployed to ensure the smooth and quick execution of the infrastructure projects in the urban areas of the country. The case in point is that of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), which is all set to deploy drones in urban planning. In this connection, it will use unmanned aerial systems (UAS) or drones to plan the city‘s upcoming Metro-rail corridors. The drones will be used to survey and map out the alignment of the corridors as the nodal agency believes that the move will help it acquire accurate details of the current situation and will save time. The authority has floated bids to appoint an agency to carry out a detailed survey of the 32 km Wadala-Ghatkopar-Thane-Kasarvadavli corridor (Metro 4) and the 23.5 km DN Nagar-Bandra-Mankhurd corridor (Metro 2B) with the help of these drones. The UAS will help prepare an accurate map of the area, its topography, and the type and number of trees, which will help implement the project, joint project director and spokesperson, MMRDA, Dilip Kawathkar said that their services will be used for carrying out detailed surveys, demarcating, measuring and geo-referencing the area, taking aerial photographs and videos and preparing maps of the area.
