The Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) has achieved another milestone while completing the work for the underground section by completing the track laying work in the downline tunnel. Track laying work in the upline tunnel had already been completed and LMRC is now planning to commence Metro operations soon in the Underground section.
LMRC used the Mass Spring System (an elastomer pad of 25 mm thickness) below the track bed for construction of track. Mass Spring System, procured from Austria, eliminates the problem of vibration and sound in adjoining structures of the underground portion.
Besides track laying, Lucknow Metro has also completed almost 80% work of the Rigid Overhead Catenary System (ROCS) i.e. overhead electrification which is being carried out inside both the tunnels for traction power.
Apart from this, the work of entrance and exit gateways at all underground stations has almost been almost completed. More than 60% of tiling and beautification work at the concourse and platform area of all the three underground Metro stations (i.e. Hussainganj, Sachivalaya & Hazratganj) has also been completed.
The construction work of all the important rooms related with Metro rail operations such as the Electrical, UPS, DV Room, Telecom & Security Room etc. is also being done at a fast pace.
