Indian railway has informed the National Green Tribunal that it will not be possible to provide ‘Roll-On, Roll-Off’ (RO-RO) services with the existing infrastructure and it is not feasible in Delhi as almost the entire rail network in the region is electrified.
“The ro-ro (roll-on roll-off) service by Konkan Railway started 13 years ago is a unique service that has enabled transport of loaded trucks directly by railway wagons. “The ro-ro service has reduced expenditure on diesel, wear and tear of tyre and maintenance of trucks for operators, and has also ensured on-time and intact delivery,” adding that in 13 years since its inception, there has not been a single case of accident.
