The Pink City is on a quick path to development with the new and upcoming metro project. The metro is going to bring about a change in how commuters traverse in Jaipur, and now, citizens just may be a step closer to a functional metro.

The underground metro routes will soon undergo inspections from senior officials, which is a step towards making Jaipur Metro Phase IB a reality very soon. Construction for these underground routes has been completed and once the inspections are carried out, Jaipur metro will become functional for the people.

What's the update?

As part of the inspection, all aspects of Jaipur metro including track parameters, tunnel safety, stations, train systems and other safety precautions will be scrutinized. Such inspections are crucial when it comes to finalizing the metro as it ensures safe and seamless travels while on the metro.

The only thing remaining in the underground metro is the installation of signalling points. The technology helps manage train routes and the tracks themselves. Signalling is also vital in keeping metro trains punctual. Once the technology is implemented, the JMRC will invite the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) to solidify the whole project.

Earlier this month, reports suggested that the JMRC was opting for elevated tracks which would help cut down costs. Though that is the case for the metro Phase II, Phase IB will use the newly constructed underground tunnels. To clarify, Phase IA of the metro connects Chandpole to Mansarovar, which is an already functional route.

About Phase IA & IB

The underground metro is a direct expansion of the existing Chandpole to Mansarovar route (Phase IA). Authorities have stated that the goal is to have Phase IB, the expansion of Phase IA ready and operational by the end of March 2020.

The existing Phase IA currently covers a distance of 9.63-kilometers. Once the extension is complete, the total length of the route will be increased to a total of 11.97-kilometers. The Phase IB will have a length of 2.34-kilometers and will have two stations along the route.

The commencement of Metro Phase IB in Jaipur metro will give rise to a better connected city, which is an important step towards progress.
