Design and safety are the foremost factors to be considered while installing elevators and escalators. We are in the process of planning the redevelopment of railway stations called "RAILOPOLIS" – a mini smart city on principles of national transit oriented development policy and accordingly there would be high demand of elevators and escalators for these. These assets must have the state-of-the-art safety and surveillance provisions and emergency response mechanisms to avert mis-happenings."
