CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) is set to install Platform Screen Doors (PSD) at all stations of its phase 2 project to ensure passenger safety during Driverless Train Operation. The move comes as a part of CMRL’s commitment to providing a world-class experience for its commuters. The PSDs not only provide additional safety to passengers but also improve air conditioning at underground stations by preventing cool air from escaping into the tunnels.

Thiru Rajesh Chaturvedi, the Director (Systems and Operations) of CMRL, has announced that the contract for the installation of PSDs on Corridor 4 of phase 2 has been awarded to M/s Zhuzhou CRRC Times Electric Co. Ltd. for INR 100 Crores. The work is being funded by the New Development Bank. The installation will include half-height PSDs for 18 elevated stations from Poonamalle to Kodambakkam Powerhouse and full-height PSDs for nine underground stations from Lighthouse to Kodambakkam.

The PSDs will be operated automatically by the driverless signaling system of Corridor 4. The contracts for the remaining corridors 3 and 5 are also in the process of finalization. CMRL’s decision to install PSDs at all stations of phase 2 shows its dedication to ensuring the safety of its commuters. The PSDs not only prevent accidents but also offer a more comfortable and efficient travel experience.

In conclusion, CMRL’s decision to install PSDs at all stations of phase 2 is a crucial step towards ensuring passenger safety and providing a world-class travel experience. With the installation of PSDs, CMRL aims to offer its commuters a safe, comfortable, and efficient mode of transport.
