Nagpur, Metro Rail News: The The MahaMetro conducted its first trial run on February 18, 2019, with the three-coach train that covered 11.5 km distance between Khapri and Ajni stations, at a speed of 45 km per hour.

The trial run took place under the supervision of an 11-member team of Research Design and Standards Organisation, functioning under the Ministry of Railways.

“The team checked compliance markers, such as safety, braking system, acceleration and deceleration, among others. It will submit a report, following which a team of the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) will undertake a visit for the final certification of safety to pave the way for the commercial run,” said Akhilesh Halve, DGM Corporate Communication

Stretching 39 km over the two corridors, the work for the project began in 2014.
