Currently guess its New York subway which is the longest . However, after rolling out almost 50,000 miles of expressways and 6,000 miles of high-speed rail lines, China is now turning its attention underground with the most extensive metro project the world has ever seen. Sensing the benefits of commutation via metro, India is also developing metro lines across different cities. Recently, Siemens Mobility has signed a contract with Rapid Metro Rail Gurgaon Limited (RMGL) to build a new metro line connecting Gurgaon Cyber City to Line 2 of the Delhi metro (DMRC), via the connecting station of Sikanderpur. For this project, Siemens will implement total rail solutions from coaches to electrification and signaling to system integration. So guess the day is not far when India will also be counted among the countries have high-speed rails and long metro lines.
