Madhya Pradesh’s Indore city will begin trial runs for the Metro rail operations along a 5.9-kilometer route, an official affiliated with the mass transit project revealed on Friday. Madhya Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation Managing Director Manish Singh told PTI that all preparations for the trial run are proceeding as planned and are expected to be nearly complete by September 10th. Pending approval from Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the trial runs could kick off around September 15th.
Singh further indicated that the first phase of the Indore Metro project is anticipated to conclude by April 2024, with commercial operations potentially commencing a month later.
