Preliminaries and tests for the Dakshineswar Metro are probably going to begin on November 15.
The trials along the 4-km expansion of the city’s current north-south stretch to Dakshineswar is a preface to its dispatch at some point in December, said authorities.
The preliminaries will begin with oneself worked motor sudden spike in demand for November 15 and afterward there will be a joint testing of the framework by Metro Railway and Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL).
Metro Railway, which runs the Kavi Subhas-Noapara Metro administrations and the shortened Sector V-Phoolbagan stretch of the East-West Metro, will be working the new segment. RVNL is the executing organization of the all-inclusive hall.
Before the preliminaries start, the critical Train Protection Warning System (TPWS) hardware — an advanced programming that forestalls mishaps — may show up from Germany during the primary seven day stretch of November.
These issues were examined at a video-meeting between the offices on Tuesday.
Indeed, even as Metro Railway has applied for review by the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) for the 4-km expansion, the significant mishap avoidance innovation, which was expected to be conveyed by Siemens from Germany in March, ran into lockdown limitations.
A report of the preliminaries and the joint testing attempted by Metro Railway and RVNL to check the segment’s availability should be shipped off CRS’ Lucknow base camp before it consents to examine and gives the date of visit.
Authorities said the preliminaries and testing shouldn’t take a lot of time since this was just an expansion of the current 27-km north-south passage.
“The TPWS programming might be conveyed at some point one week from now. It will take four or five days for its establishment in the tracks. After this, we will check the product’s exhibition,” a senior RVNL official told TOI on Wednesday.
