The officials of Maha metro will now have to think of an alternative to inaugurate the Aqua Line and its commercial services which was earlier to be inaugurated by the hands of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi but due to the unpleasant weather conditions, Modi’s visit was postponed.
Since the metro’s commercial services have already received a green signal by the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS), metro officials are in worry and searching a way out to start these services on the Aqua Line of Nagpur Maha Metro as soon as possible.
One of the alternate ways within the Metro Officials planning is to wait till the scheduling of Prime Minister is clear and then finalize a date for the inauguration according to the schedule of Prime Minister.
The other planning may hold an inauguration by the hands of Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, this has a lot of chances depending on the schedule of Prime Minister and a word from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). All the planning and chances are to be done within the span of next week, said the sources.
The Khapri to Sitabuldi route was opened to be used by the citizens right after the Prime Minister had a video conference session, where he dedicated the route to the city. While on the other hand the Reach 3, which is Lokmanya Nagar to Sitabuldi route also known as Aqua-Line is getting delayed to start its commercial services and the officials have stated no clue as per the present situation.
Services on the Aqua Line would be available every hour on either side where the first service will be available at 8 am from Lokmanya Nagar to Sitabuldi interchange station. The last service would be at 9 pm.
The metro officials are currently trying to put up a brave face as in run-up to the inauguration of Aqua Line since last one-week hectic preparations were on. The last-minute postponement of Aqua Line inauguration programme has dampened the high spirits of metro team that left no stone unturned to put up a grand display for the big day.
