Trial Runs on Nagpur Metro’s Line-1 Officially Flagged Off

6 days after the first ever trial run was conducted, the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MahaMetro) today officially launched trial runs on a 3.5 km at-grade section of Nagpur’s 19.66 km Line-1 which’ll connect Khapri with Automotive Square in the 38.215 km Phase 1 project. The leased Hyundai Rotem train was first unveiled to the public in its new orange-white-green avatar, and then flagged off at 3 pm by Maharashtra’s Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari.

The train left Khapri Depot, traveled up to the Airport South Station through Khapri Station, and then headed back to the depot at speeds of up to 15 kmph.

    On a auspicious day good,here in Kolkata we have carnivals no METRO!

    • TMRG says:

      Services on Line 1 have been extended late into the night, no? Or are you referring to the progress made on the new lines?

    Didn’t the same thing happen in Lucknow? Jokers.

    • TMRG says:

      Yep. Secret late night trial on November 30 followed by an ‘official’ run on December 1 flagged off by the then CM.

  3. Ayush says:

    No matter which Metro line, that Hyundai stock looks ugly. If TMRG was to rate every stock, what would the list look like?

    Hyundai Rotem Coches Are Better Than Others Like Mitsubishi , BELML , Alstom , etc.
