Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety accepts CMRS to inspect Rapid Metro line soon

GURGAON: The Rapid Metro authorities have claimed that the Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) has accepted their application to conduct the mandatory inspection before the line can be opened for public use. They said a series of meeting between the CMRS office and the Rapid Metro are underway. The Rapid Metro is expecting his visit any day. 

Meanwhile, the authorities are conducting trial runs from 6am to 12 midnight everyday and appear to be satisfied with the trial runs. In early August, the Research Design and Standards Organization (RDSO) team from Lucknow had given their approval for the high oscillation trial and had submitted their report to the CMRS. 

Meanwhile, senior officials from the Hooda government jumped the gun and announced that the commercial operations will begin from October 2, even though the CMRS was yet to inspect the line. The Rapid Metro authorities were forced to do some quick damage control and therefore, are now unwilling to comment on when the operations will eventually begin. 

"From our side, we are fully prepared. We are waiting for the CMRS to visit and inspect the line. We are not sure when the inspection will take place and therefore, we are not in a position to comment by when the commercial run will start. All we can say is that we are all set to launch the moment we receive the CMRS go-ahead," said a Rapid Metro spokesperson. 

However, according to a source, before the CMRS actually comes to the site and inspects the line, he might ask his deputies to inspect it and submit a report. 

The network has already missed many deadlines. It was supposed to open in March. Even now, whenever it opens, only five out of the six metro stations will be operational as one of them is still under construction.


For the convenience of passengers and to clear extra rush during the festive season, Western Railway will run special trains for the benefit of passengers.

Railway board member inspects Jaipur Metro

JAIPUR: Member (engineering) of railway board and ex-officio secretary to Union government Subodh Jain inspected Jaipur Metro on Saturday.

At the sites, Jain inspected the track, electrification and the signals. But his major thrust was on the safety and the technical aspects of Metro sites.

Railway board project advisor Pradeep Kumar and Jaipur Metro chairman & managing director Nihal Chand along with the officials from Delhi Metro Rail Corporation were also present. They briefed Jain about the safety measures taken in the project.

Jain also took a ride on a train from Mansarovar to Shyam Nagar. Along with that, he inspected the elevated route and track signals. At Mansarovar station, he checked the automatic fare collection system and safety arrangements. He also inspected the Mansarovar to Chand Pole route.

After the day-long inspection, Jain said that railway issues clearance to Metro projects after ensuring proper safety and checking the technical systems. The railway board has issued almost all clearances to Jaipur Metro, he added.

He also talked about the scheduled oscillation trials by Research Design and Standard Organization (RDSO), a research wing of the railway board in November and said that on the basis of RDSO recommendations, more clearances for Jaipur Metro will be issued.

"This trial is a legal necessity before the train opens for passengers," said Jain. During the trial, the RDSO will inspect the vibration on the tracks while the train is in motion. He also pointed out that compared to other metros, the width of the train here is less and hence safer on sharp curves. There is no reason for the train to get unstable on sharp curves, he said.
