No agency in India has the experience of handling monorail projects


By Yogesh Naik

The Mumbai Monorail, which is the country’s first such project, has hit the most elementary roadblock. No government or private agency in India is able to test its safety; hence, trial runs scheduled on Phase I later this month are likely to be delayed.

Awaiting trial runs is the Chembur to Jacob Circle line. MMRDA plans to make the first part — from Wadala to Chembur (8.26 km) — operational by the end of this year. MMRDA approached the Commissioner of Railway Safety to certify the monorail network, but the request was turned down, saying the railway safety department had no experience in handling such projects.

MMRDA Commissioner Rahul Asthana said, “The Commissioner of Railway Safety said that they cannot be the certifying authority for monorail. Now, we may approach the Shanghai Metro Corporation, which has set up a huge system in China.”
