PRESS RELEASE

 

NEW METRO CARSHED AT KAVI SUBHASH

 

Kolkata, 18th February, 2024

 

Kavi Subhash Metro station is the interchanging Metro station of Blue Line and New Garia Railway station of Eastern Railway. Soon it will also be the interchanging point of another line of Kolkata Metro, i.e. Orange Line. Like Blue Line, it is going to be o­ne of the terminal stations of Orange Line. After the commercial service of Blue Line, the rakes are stabled here. For this Kavi Subhash has a Metro Carshed. But as the Orange Line will be opened within a few days, the number of rakes will be increased whose maintenance will be required. Currently Kavi Subhash Carshed does not have maintenance facility, o­nly stabling of rakes done there.

 

To serve the commuters better and reduce the maintenance pressure o­n Noapara Car Depot, a separate maintenance shed has been constructed beside the existing Kavi Subhash Carshed. This shed consists of Inspection Bay, Lifting Bay and Stabling Lines. It will cater to the needs of Orange Line.

 

The Inspection Bay is required for the routine and unscheduled maintenance which consists of 3-tier inspection facility i.e. under the car, side portion of the car and roof of the car for maintenance. Two dedicated lines will be there to serve the purpose. 

 

Lifting Bay is required during the maintenance time. The Stabling Bay is required for the stabling of rakes after the commercial services. This new shed has 6 new stabling lines. 

 

This new Carshed also has an Automatic Train Washing Plant which will help to wash the rakes periodically. 

 

One Battery powered Rail cum Road Shunter has been provided to facilitate shunting of Metro rakes in the yard.

 

It also has a 500 kWp Solar Power Plant o­n the roof of the shed, which will help to reduce the carbon footprint.
