Rails arrive for at grade section of Nagpur Metro Rail

: The at grade section at the N-S corridor of Nagpur Metro Rail is gearing up for track laying. This total length of this section which is at grade between MIHAN Depot and the Airport Station is 5.6kms. The tender for supply of the rails was awarded to Jindal Steel & Power Limited.

The first consignment of rails for the at grade section arrived today at site from Jindal Steel Plant at Raigad and is being unloaded. The rails for metro track are heavy duty rails as compared to the normal railway track rails. These heavy duty rails will reduce the maintenance efforts in future. NMRCL will be procuring 2000MT of 90UTS Rails for this section. This is yet another milestone in the journey of Nagpur Metro Rail Project.
