CHENNAI METRO :: COMPLETED to OPEN 1st LINE

Friday, May 29, 2015 / No Comments
CHENNAI METRO 

Chennai Metro Rail completed all formalities to open First Line. CMRS(Commissioner of Metro Rail Saftey) inspected the line between Ashok Nagar and Alandur on Monday and Tuesday and will give clearance for operation of 10km Koyambedu - Alandur line in few days.The government will be able to commission the line after the clearance comes. Sources say that the by-election in R K Nagar constituency may not be a stumbling block for the project to be opened by the state government as the election commission has notified exemptions to the ban on declaring new projects.

Metro rail officials do not expect any objection from the safety commissioner, and considers the visit as more or less a formality as the Ministry of Urban Development amended rules to allow Single - Line Operation on the stretch in spite of a technical handicap caused by incomplete work. The commissioner did not inspect the line from Ashok Nagar to Alandur when he arrived a few weeks ago to inspect trains and stations because a crossover line near Alandur metro station that allows trains to change track and return along the parallel track was not ready. “This is a necessity as per railway rules because trains are not allowed to run on single track back and forth. Now, the rule has been amended allowing such mode of operation to prevent the metro rail project from getting delayed,” said an official.

Services may get truncated because a train that reaches will have to use the same line to return to Ashok Nagar. This will affect frequency as trains cannot be run on Ashok Nagar - Alandur line till a train returns from Alandur.Sources said the technical glitch happened because the construction contract for the elevated line got delayed though work was awarded five years ago. “This forced metro rail to drop St Thomas Mount (from the first operable stretch) and start pushing for opening of the line from Koyambedu to Alandur. But the line was not designed to allow trains to turnaround at Alandur,” said an official. Such ad hoc decision caused confusion, and the ministry amended the rules to prevent further delay. Metro rail officials started sending documents to the commissioner of metro rail safety in January. Truck loads of paper containing drawings, designs and other details were sent to Bengaluru.

SMS Based System for Cleaning in Running Trains

Western railways announced a new facility for passengers to ensure that cleanliness is maintained in the trains during their run, on Board Housekeeping Service (OBHS) has been provided on 48 rakes of 23 trains and to include wide spectrum of passengers, additional 29 trains has been identified for inclusion under OBHS.
SMS Based Train Cleaning                                                 As an initiative to provide greater facility to passenger, and with an objective to provide a systematic technical solution for passengers to demand cleaning service on board, “Swachh Rail Seva“ has been started on all OBHS based trains of Western Railway through SMS to a mobile no., on trial basis. Passengers can request for Housekeeping/Cleaning services at their seats/coaches by simply sending a SMS followed by their PNR No. prefixing the word "Clean" to 09004449990 e.g. "Clean < 10 digit PNR No. >". This activates an Application to direct OBHS staff on the train to the passenger and monitors the performance of the services by taking regular feedback from the passengers and OBHS staff. The object of this Application is to systematize passengers’ requests for on board cleanliness and hygiene. It also documents WR's endeavor to meet the demands of its valued customers. 

For example if your PNR No is 1234567890 then you should SMS like following format

Type "Clean 1234567890"  on your mobile and SMS to  Phone No. 09004449990

Enjoy the feature and do let me know your feed backs.
