jaipur-metroJaipur: Commissioner of Metro Railway Safety (CMRS) Chetan Bakshi inspected Jaipur Metro rolling stocks on Sunday and gave satisfactory remarks. With this, it is expected the project is inching closer to commercial run and expected to be operated in March end.

Project director Ashwani Saxena said, “As per the mandatory norms, CMRS approval is necessary. The rolling stocks were inspected today and now the JMRC will receive the recommendations and approval of the CMRS. We have also requested him to carry out inspection of the corridor in February-end or March first week.”

The JMRC was targeting to complete its pending work of four stations by December 31 and expecting the commercial run by March 2015. However, it still appears a herculean task as at present major works at Ram Nagar, Civil Lines, Railway Station and Sindhi Camp stations are still pending.

It was informed that JMRC has already started the service run in which everyone from station masters of nine stations, signaling staff and train operators are on duty. The exercise is to acclimatize the staff with the operation of the railways. Others, including customer care executives, are also on duty during the service run.

The much-delayed Jaipur Metro project is just a step closer towards being operational. So far, the Jaipur Metro has cleared the speed test and obtained the mandatory certification. Recently, the railway’s research arm, RDSO had issued necessary approvals for city’s first Metro corridor between Mansarovar and Chandpole. A top speed of 80 km per hour has been set for the Metro, which is expected to roll out soon, officials said.

The average speed of the Jaipur Metro on the 9.25 km route will be 32 km per hour. “Metro trains will not be allowed to cross 42 km per hour at curves. With a maximum speed of 80 km per hour, the Metro will be able to achieve the desired speed as expected by the JMRC,” the official added.
