Oscillation trials of Metro completed

But it will take at least another month for the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) to know if it has met all requirements and if it is now eligible for the fresh speed certificate.

The RDSO officials had arrived in the City in the first week of June to conduct the trials and based on that will issue a fresh speed certificate to BMRCL, which had run into a major hurdle in the Schedule of Dimensions and Track Structure, forcing the Commissioner of
Railway Safety (CRS) to instruct the Corporation to approach RDSO for a fresh certificate.

Informed sources said: “The team, after reaching Lucknow, will have to first prepare a report which will go through different sections of the RDSO, before reaching the (CRS).”

Preparation of the clearance report itself, sources pointed out, could take at least upto four weeks, after which it has to be sent to the RDSO directorates concerned, including Building and Structures and Track Design.

This would mean that the wait for Namma Metro will not be complete any time before August.  The BMRCL will run a 2,500-km trial before the CRS inspects the project to declare it safe or otherwise.
