It has been 5 days since the historic day when Nagpur Metro was first flagged off, but the buzz around this new mode of city transport is not ready to die down yet. Along with Nagpur Metro, the MahaMetro officials also cut the ribbon of #MaziMetroDreamComingTrue exhibition. The expo has been set up at the Airport South station and is open for all.
MahaMetro has organized this expo to give deeper insights into the project and its journey so far and further ahead. Approximately 23,000 citizens have visited the expo in just 5 days. People from all walks of life, right from kids, students, and youths to senior citizens, made a beeline at the show. Not just individuals but institutions such as schools, colleges, officials from the government departments, volunteers from social organizations also visited the exhibition. Nagpurkars from all over the city dropped by to gain a first-hand experience of the Metro through the expo.
Many students from engineering colleges such as Ramdeobaba College of Engineering and Management, GH Raisoni College of Engineering, and St Vincent Pallotti Engineering College and others were seen at the expo. These students were accompanied by their teachers to understand the technicalities that went into making the Metro project. Both, students and teachers were seen appreciating and lauding various aspects such as the modern construction, innovative design and interiors of stations and train. Several junior college, ITI and school students were also present at the exhibition for the same purpose.
Apart from the Metro model, the expo has many other attractions for the visitors. E-cycles from the firm called ‘Bounce’ have been kept, as these cycles will be found at various stations in the city for last mile connectivity. MahaMetro experts were seen giving demos, explaining the details of the Metro and taking and addressing questions from the visitors.
Last week, another metro rake made it to the city from CRRC (China), according to the MahaMetro officials. The rake was shipped to Chennai from China and then transported to Nagpur via roadway. It is presently at the MahaMetro’s Mihan depot undergoing various software, machinery and other tests.
