“Detailed route survey through the busy roads of Mumbai, deploying numerous specialized trailers at once, the building of temporary roads as none of the main roads had the clearances required for safe movement and coordination with traffic police/multiple government authorities for smooth transportation through the city were the crucial challenges faced by our team,” said in the statement.
“With detailed route surveys, swept path analysis, accurate lifting plans, and seamless coordination our team managed to overcome the challenges and delivered the coaches by unloading them on rails. Proud to have added another feather to our cap!”, further added.
In July 2014, CIDCO had awarded a contract worth 78 million euros to an international consortium led by Ansaldo STS and including Tata Projects Limited and CSR Zhuzhou for electrical and mechanical systems for the first phase of Navi Mumbai Metro Line 1.
CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co., Ltd. was given the responsibility to design, manufacture, supply, testing and commissioning of 24 standard gauge metro coaches (eight 3-coach train sets) for Navi Mumbai Metro project.
According to the contract, the size of three-car trainsets is 64.6m long and 3.1m wide, with a passenger capacity of around 1,100 and a maximum speed of approximately 80 km/h. The CRRC had delivered the first two train sets of 3-coaches to CIDCO in March last year.
In September last year, trial run on 2-km long distance from Pendhar Metro Terminal Yard to Pendhar Station was conducted. This section is part of 11-km long Phase 1 of the Navi Mumbai Metro project.
The Navi Mumbai Metro project is always in controversy due to wrong planning and irregularities in the tendering process at various stages of project execution.
