CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): The Chennai Metro Rail has successfully performed the diesel locomotive trial run on the 9-kilometre phase-1 extension stretch from Washermenpet to Wimco Nagar.
The trial run covered 9 kilometres up and down, stopping at eight metro stations with six elevated and two underground stations according to a statement issued by CMRL.
“The installation of various systems including ballast-less track, overhead electrification, signalling, tunnel ventilation, HVAC, platform screen doors and automatic fare collection gates is underway,” a statement read.
The Metro is also expected to give a green makeover to the medium lanes by planting various plants which would grow on the shade.
Once open, the six km elevated stretch of the nine km stretch will give commuters a view of the north Chennai coast while commuting.
The Chennai Metro has also floated tenders for Digital Route Display Requirements for setting up LCD TVs and audio systems for announcements in the trains and stations.
