Nagpur: RDSO (Research Design & Standards Organization) has issued speed certificate for at grade section of Nagpur Metro. This certificate will now be sent to Railway Board for approval after which CMRS (Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety) will do the final inspection. Once CMRS clears the section, metro will be able to start commercial operation, which is scheduled in January 2018.
- Mahametro had conducted self trial of at grade section & sent the results to the RDSO, Lucknow.
- Speed certificate signifies that the Metro track in at grade section is safe for operation.
- The conclusion was reached on the basis of oscillations recorded by oscillation measurement system (OMS) fitted on a Metro Rail coach during trial run.
- “The commissioner office will do a comprehensive test. The officials will check the tracks, stations, electric traction signalling and telecom system. They will also check whether our staff is well trained and capable of handling the operations. All things will be checked at one go,” Brijesh Dixit, MD, Mahametro, said.
