COMMERCIAL OPERATIONS TO FOLLOW DECEMBER TEST RUN

You could be commuting on a Namma Metro train sooner than you expect. Come December, Metro officials told this newspaper on Tuesday, Reach 1 -- from MG Road to Byappanahalli -- will be chugging along, making the project the one bright spot in a city where building even a small flyover or an underpass typically takes ages.officials said work on Reach 1 is nearing completion and will be ready for safety testing by October. Commercial run will begin in December.
"All piling work and piers of Reach 1 have been completed. We expect to finish the civil work by end of October and begin test runs", BMRC deputy chief engineer B.L. Yashvanth Chavan told Deccan Chronicle, "Once we get safety clearance from the Commissioner of Railway Safety, we will commission Reach 1. Given the pace at which the project is rolling, we should be ready to ride on the Metro by the end of the year."
