The Nagpur dream of a metro seemed very very real on Monday when the Metro railway successfully managed its first ‘at grade’ trial.
Until now the metro trials and joy-rides were all happening on the ground level. It is for the first time today that the metro had an elevated trial run. The RDSO team has specially come down to monitor the trials. The metro requires the RDSO sanction which will be spread over a lot of trials and speeds before it can commence commercial run.
Today the metro covered a distance of 11.5 Kms from Khapri to Congress Nagar. This encompasses some ten metro stations as per the plan.
