NEW ESCALATOR TO BE COMMISSIONED IN MG ROAD STATION SOON
Metro Railway has taken several measures to improve passenger amenities at different Metro stations during the lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic. Replacement of old escalators with modern ones is going on in North-South Metro in this period.
As a part of this initiative, replacement work of an old escalator at the Dumdum end of Mahatma Gandhi Road station has already been completed. Load Testing and other safety parameters checking of the new escalator have also been completed. Electrical and Civil Engineering Departments have worked in tandem to complete this work in record time maintaining all Covid-19 protocols.
This new escalator will be commissioned very soon after completion of some formal works.
