MAINTENANCE OF THIRD RAIL PEDESTAL OF METRO RAILWAY DURING LOCKDOWN
During the nationwide lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic, Metro services have been suspended since 23.03.2020. Metro Railway is making full utilization of this period by maintenance activities of various departments which have been going on smoothly to keep all Metro assets including rolling stocks ready for resumption of its services.
Repairing and construction works of third rail pedestals along the North- South Metro corridor have been taken up during this time in order to replace the old pedestals. Third Rail which carries and supplies electricity to the running Metro rakes is placed on these pedestals with the help of insulators.
Reconstruction of these pedestals will give enhanced stability to the third rail.
