Navi Mumbai: The safety trial will start from Monday between Kharghar’s Central Park to Taloja’s Pendhar on Line-1 of Navi Mumbai Metro running from Belapur to Pendra in Taloja. The trial will be conducted by the Commissioner of Metro Railway Safety (CMRS). This trial will take place on the 5.14 km metro line from Central Park in Kharghar to Pendhar in Taloja.

After this successful test, RDSO has given the certificate of speed for this line for the first phase of Navi Mumbai Metro Line-1. CIDCO has sent a proposal to the Commissioner of Metro Railway Safety (CMRS) through Maha Metro to start metro service on this route. Approving this, CMRS is starting the safety trial on Line-1 of Navi Mumbai Metro from Monday. If successful, the way for the commuters to run on this route will be cleared for the Navi Mumbai Metro.
