    Shankar Nagar, Rachna Junction metro stations get CRMS clearance

    Nagpur: The Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) on Monday gave its clearance to Shankar Nagar and Rachna Junction metro stations after inspection. These two stations are located on Aqua Line (East West Route) and provide commuters in Western parts of the city an alternate mode of transport.

    The CMRS Janak Kumar Garg and his team carried out minute inspection of tracks and passenger amenities at the two stations for two days and found them satisfactory. Nagpur Metro is fast-tracking clearances for stations with focus on stations between Sitabuldi Interchange to Wasudeo Nagar on Hingna route on top priority. As of now Rahate Colony, Ajni Chowk, Bansi Nagar and LAD College Square metro stations, Subhash Nagar and Rachna Ring Road junctions are ready to be unlocked once normalcy returns and most of the education institutions reopen. The CMRS and his team also inspected the Subhash Nagar and Rachna Junction metro stations and examined various facilities available for the passengers in the station area.

    During the month of September, Ajni Chowk, Rahate Colony, LAD College Square and Bansi Nagar metro stations were opened for service and now two new metro stations would be in service for passengers in the coming days. Now, in all 18 metro stations are available for metro services with eight on the Orange Line and 10 on Aqua Line.

    Dr Brijesh Dixit, ManagingDirector, Maha Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MMRCL), expressing satisfaction over clearance for two more metro stations, complimented the construction workers and officials saying their joint efforts have borne fruit. He appealed to citizens to make full use of the metro service in large numbers and also inspire others to use it. Metro expects footfall to increase as Shankar Nagar and Rachna Junction (near Hingna T-Point) will greatly benefit the citizens of the area where there is substantial population base.
