The final inspection of Lucknow Metro’s 23-km North-South corridor from Amausi Airport to Munshipulia by Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) team is set to begin from February 20 and will go on till February 22. The CMRS team led by A.K. Jain arrived in the city earlier today to begin the inspection from the Hussainganj underground metro station. The inspection will begin with the underground metro stations followed by the trolley inspection on the up-line track.
What all does the inspection includes?
The inspection of the entire stretch will primarily focus on tracks, signal and safety measures for commuters on all the metro stations. The team will also examine the facilities available for the public and differently-abled on all the metro stations to help them access it easily.
The inspection will also check whether the cross doors made in the underground metro stations to help during an emergency are sufficient or not. The communications system in the underground metro stations will also be a matter of consideration before CMRS gives the final certification.
The construction of 175-meter long metro stretch on the Gomti River, the metro curve near IT and the speed of metro at these points will also be a part of the final report.
The three-day inspection plan
On the second day of the final test, February 21, the CMRS will do the trolley inspection on the down-line track. The up-line and down-line inspection on the route between Amausi station and Chaudhary Charan Singh station will also be done on the same day.
On the last day, February 22, both high and low-speed inspection will be done on the entire route from Chaudhary Charan Singh metro station to Munshipulia station.
The team will also check and decide the appropriate speed for the metro run throughout the route. It is expected that if the CMRS finds no faults in the metro during the inspection, the CMRS will give the green signal by February 25.
