Hyderabad: Chief Electrical Inspector to Government of India (CEIG) DVS Raju inspected the Overhead Electric Traction System (OETS) between Punjagutta & LB Nagar Metro stations on Monday. He also accorded sanction for energisation of the OETS.
- The traction system is fed from the Receiving Substation (RSS) of the Hyderabad Metro Rail at the Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station.
- Incoming supply to this substation is drawn from the main substation of TS TRANSCO.
- Energisation of the OETS would facilitate movement of trains for trial runs from Ameerpet to LB Nagar (Stage 5) and thus connect the entire Corridor-I from Miyapur to LB Nagar, after conducting the inspection, DVS Raju said.
- The trial runs would begin in a few days, a senior Metro official said.
- LTMRHL MD and CEO KVB Reddy said,“This is an important milestone for Corridor I. We are thankful to the CEIG for inspecting and approving stage Ameerpet- LB Nagar energisation from Punjagutta to LB Nagar.”
- This would enable LTMRHL to test other systems of the Metro Rail and thereby start trial runs as per its commitment to complete all statutory requirements, he also said.
