KANPUR, INDIA (Metro Rail News): In view of the proposed trial run on the 9KMs long Priority Corridor (IIT-Motijheel) in November 2021, Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation Limited (UPMRC) commences the testing of the signalling system in the Metro Depot, located near Gurudev Chauraha. The first train set is being prepared for trial on the test track in the Depot and before that signals are being charged and tested. The process is known as ‘Signalling Power On Test’.

Signal Installation Almost Completed in Depot & on Mainline
Total 29 signals are to be installed in the Depot, out of which, 27 signals have already been installed. The Mainline is to be equipped with 43 signals, out of which, 35 signals have been placed. Currently, signal installation work is pending at the Motijheel Metro Station only and that too will complete soon.

Metro Train to follow these colours!
Metro Train’s movement will be controlled with the three coloured signals viz. Red, Violet & Green. Red says to stop, while the violet signal allows for the conditional proceed (movement with a prescribed low-speed limit). This signal is shown when another train is in the vicinity. Green refers to the clear route and the driver (Train Operator) can proceed freely with the allowed speed limit.

One more kind of signal is there for movement inside the Depot. This signal has 3 white lights. When two lights glow horizontally, the driver is instructed to stop and when the two lights glow at a 45-degree angle, the train is allowed to proceed. This signal is called ‘Shunt Signal.’
