The Navi Mumbai Metro received two metro trains from China on Monday. The trains are with the three-coach formation. These trains have landed at the Mumbai port from China and reached to Navi Mumbai Metro’s Taloja depot for further testing and commissioning activities. The train coaches have been manufactured by China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC) at Zhuzhou.
As per the plan, there will a total of eight trains which will be run in the 11.1 km long corridor between Belapur and Pendhar under the Navi Mumbai Metro project. Three more trains are expected to arrive in May and another three trains in August this year.
According to the CIDCO officials, the trial runs of these trains may begin in September-October as soon as contractors hand over stations.
Each metro train will have a three-coach-formation- Two DM (driving motor) cars-one in the front and the other in the rear, while the middle coach will be T (trailer) car.
The Navi Mumbai Metro rail project has been delayed much beyond schedule. The first phase of the project covers a distance of 11.1 km and it will have a total of 11 stations. This corridor will connect Belapur Railway Station to Pendhar Station near Taloja where the CIDCO is developing metro depot-cum-workshop. The cost of phase-I is estimated to Rs.3,063.63 crores.
“The kits will be assembled at the depot. Individual coach testing will be done, followed by integrated testing. Once the stations are ready, we will roll the trains for track testing with safety inspections,” said Deepak Hartalkar, Cidco superintending engineer for Navi Mumbai Metro Project.
The Navi Mumbai Metro project, kicked off in 2011 at a cost of Rs 3,000 crore, has missed several deadlines and a new deadline of 2020 has been set for commissioning of the project. The work on the elevated span has been almost completed and the work on stations, signalling systems etc. are in progress.
The Navi Mumbai Metro project has been divided into four phases. The second phase has been planned between Khandeshwar and Taloja MIDC. The third phase will connect Pendhar and Taloja MIDC and the fourth phase will connect Khandeshwar and the upcoming Navi Mumbai International Airport (NMIA) near Panvel.
