PUNE (Metro Rail News): The Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited also known as Maha-Metro is going to extend trial runs of the rakes across a 7km stretch between the Sant Tukaramnagar and Phugewadi stations.
The priority stretch falls on the PCMC-Swargate Metro corridor. Maha-Metro has said that it has completed constructing the viaduct, laying tracks and installing the overhead traction cable network between these two stations. Work on a crucial portion around Nashik Phata was the last to be finished — a couple of months ago.
“The trial runs will begin soon. We have chalked out a plan to test all parameters. Some final work is pending and will be done in the next few days,” an official was stated saying by a media agency.
“As things stand, the rakes are running in phases for a few metres beyond both stations. All these trials have been successful so far,” the official had added.
