Pune Metro starts trials for signalling system
The Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation (Maha Metro) on Monday started trials of the Pune Metro rail project with the communication base train control signalling system (CBTC). With this, it would be possible to operate a train every two minutes.
Brijesh Dixit, MD of Maha Metro, said, the CBTC’s high-speed train trial is an important step towards the completion of the project. “Pune Metro in a few months from now will be operational from Garware College Metro Station to Civil Court and from Phugewadi to Civil Court,” Dixit said.
