DMTC is committed to minimize the inconvenience arsing out of the construction of this Elevated Metro Rail system. Road and Traffic conditions are one of the mostly researched factors that were being scrutinized in minute details. In order to minimize damages to the road and traffic congestions, MRT Line-6 project has taken up a strategic plan based on numerous surveys of Traffic Pattern and existing Road conditions. Diversion of Traffic routes along the construction sites, introduction of alternate roads, erecting enclosures around the construction sites to prevent accidents and spillage will be a few steps among others to mitigate public suffering during construction.
