New Delhi: Delhi Metro will conduct an advanced training programme on 'ballastless tracks' for the professionals of urban rail-based systems across the nation and also the neighbouring countries, an official statement said on Sunday.
The ballastless technology facilitates the movement of trains at high speed and requires very less maintenance.
