MP: Bhopal Metro ran at this speed for first time in Priority Corridor

Bhopal: For the first time on Friday morning, the Bhopal Metro train ran at a speed of 80 kilometers per hour on the Priority Corridor of the Metro. However, just a day before this, the Metro was run at a speed of 60 kilometers per hour on this corridor. 

Managing Director of Metro, Sibi Chakraborty said that according to the design of the Metro, the fixed speed of the Metro is 90 kilometers per hour. But as there is a metro station at a distance of every two kilometers, the metro will be able to run at a speed of 80 kilometers per hour only. 

A new experience for city residents

The trial runs of the metro that took place prior to 16 May were at a speed of 10 to 15 KMPH. On 16 May trial run was held at speed of 60 KMPH and on 17 May at 80 KMPH. This is the first time that the metro was run at a speed of 80 kilometers. The Managing Director has congratulated the entire team for this.

The trial run that took place on Friday was a new experience for the city residents. For the first time, the residents saw the metro moving so fast on the track. Within a moment the metro train from Subhash Nagar had reached Rani Kamlapati. The people were amazed to see this. 

Trial runs will continue further

Trial runs will continue on the 6.22 km long priority corridor. According to Bhopal Metro Corporation, the metro stations of Subhash Nagar, Kendriya Vidyalaya, RKMP and MP Nagar in front of DB Mall are almost 90 percent completed. 30 to 40 percent work is left at DRM office, Alkapuri and AIIMS stations. Commercial run on the priority corridor will start as soon as the work of the station is completed.
