Hyderabad Metro to run at full speed now

HYDERABAD, Apr 02 (The CONNECT) - L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited (L&TMRHL) has obtained (Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) clearance to harness the full speed potential of its metro system.

L&TMRHL has recently undertaken modifications to its signalling software which were inspected by CMRS Janak Kumar Garg for three days from March 28.

KVB Reddy, MD & CEO, L&TMRHL, said, “With the receipt of this authorisation from CMRS, we would now be ramping up the metro systems to full speed potential thus saving time between the terminal stations, leading to a better passenger experience.”

With this, it is expected that journey time would reduce by about 6 mins on Corridor 3 (Nagole to Raidurg); about 4 mins on Corridor 1 (Miyapur to LB Nagar), and about 1.15 min on Corridor 2 (MGBS to JBS). It is also expected that with this systems upgrade, there will be an improvement in the rail wheel interaction on sharp curves thereby reduction in screeching and vibrations.
