Safety inspection of Airport Metro done

Safety inspection of Airport Metro done
The Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) on Wednesday completed a mandatory safety inspection of the high-speed Airport Metro Express Corridor and expected to announce his decision on Thursday.

CMRS R K Kardam had began the inspection of the 23-km Line yesterday. Kardam is expected to give his reply tomorrow, with sources saying the inspection went off well.

The green signal from CMRS is mandatory for reopening of the corridor. The 23-km corridor, connecting the city’s business centre Connaught Place with Terminal-3 of the IGI Airport, was shut down temporarily in July last year after cracks were found in the civil structure.

The high-speed corridor underwent extensive repairs for the last six months.

Once the line is cleared by Kardam, the operator -- Reliance Infrastructure -- would start services on the line within a couple of days.
