Architect Archana Chaudhary spoke on the upcoming Metro project and highlighted that there was no special parking facility at the proposed stations, which would be an inconvenience to travelers who will be deprived of a 'park and ride' facility. She further added: "The project has to be economically viable and for that driverless trains should be run."
She further said that replicating the Delhi metro model, the technology employed in Chandigarh Metro would be 45 years old by the time it would come into operation in 2020. She also expressed that a circular system of metro would work better for the city than he presently proposed cross model.
