A step forward towards passenger service

Research Design and Structured Organization will conduct Oscillation Trials for CIDCO’s Navi Mumbai Metro Line no.1 from Belapur to Pendhar from 28th August 2021. The trials will be for the section between Pendhar Station to Central Park station which is a distance of about 5.14 Km. This Oscillation trial is an important step towards commissioning of metro for passengers.

It may be recalled that the first test run was done on 10 September 2019.

“Oscillation trial is an important stage before commissioning of metro service for citizens. The passenger service will be soon begun on metro line no.1 in two phases after oscillation trial. This will turn the dream of Navi Mumbai residents of travelling through metro into reality.”

RDSO will carry out Oscillation Trial and Emergency Breaking Distance (EBD) trial from 28th August 2021.
