Metro Command and Control Centre handed over to PMA


The Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) has officially given the charge of metro bus service to the Punjab Metrobus Authority (PMA) after the construction of Command and Control Centre for the twin cities.

According to sources, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will be requested to inaugurate the centre in Saddar. The staff required to run the control centre has been appointed and the employees are undergoing special training sessions to avoid glitches in their duties. The services of foreign experts were also hired in this regard.

The centre has been equipped with up-to-date computerised systems to monitor the locations and performance of the drivers of the metro bus service in the twin cities. The computerised system will allow the control centre to point out any negligence of the workers of the metro bus service and give directives to the bus drivers regarding their duties. In case of emergency, the command and control centre will establish a quick contact with the rescue service for immediate cooperation.

The building of the centre consists of seven floors. The authorities have started the process of registration of parking lots and searching occupants for the two floors of private offices.

The PMA has expressed its commitment to administer the Command and Control Centre in the best way possible.
