TRIAL RUNS CONDUCTED on KAVI SUBHASH – HEMANTA MUKHOPADHYAY STRETCH OF ORANGE LINE FOR TWO DAYS
Kolkata, Date: 02.05.2023
Regular trial runs are being conducted on Kavi Subhash – Hemanta Mukhopadhyay stretch of the Orange Line in order to keep machineries and staff ready for the commercial services. As this 5.4- KM stretch of Kavi Subhash to Airport via Rajarhat Project is ready for commissioning, these trial runs are necessary for the preparation.
Metro authorities conducted two trial runs for two consecutive days i.e. on 01.05.2023 and 02.05.2023 from Kavi Subhash – Hemanta Mukhopadhyay stations and back. During these trial runs, ten round trips were made with the Medha AC rake (No. 416) to check tracks, power supply, proper docking of rake, response of the station staff etc.
The trial rake sometime stopped at all stations and also ran from one terminal station to another terminal station without stopping at intermediate stations.
