KTK Group in 2021 commissioned half-height PSDs at Mumbai’s elevated Line-2A.

Besides preventing suicides and accidents due to passenger movement, these PSDs will greatly help MahaMetro to reduce maintenance costs in the underground stations by improving the quality of the environment, resulting in lower air-conditioning and ventilation costs.

This is among the last major system contracts to be awarded. A list of all Pune Metro packages and their status / contractors can be viewed here.
