Given the September deadline for trial, authorities have increased the workforce and also started night shift to meet deadlines. After September, operational run of the train along the 6 kms long route between Gandhi Nagar and Super Corridor(S3) called 'super priority corridor' will commence.
As far as specifications are concerned, the metro will have three to four coaches catering to 350 to 400 passengers. The train is expected to ply at a speed of 80 kilometres per hour.
