At Charkop depot, the Mumbai Metro has established a “monsoon control room” and set up anemometers at five stations on the elevated lines 2A (Dahisar to Andheri) and 7 (Dahisar East to Andheri East) to measure wind speeds.
The control centre is outfitted with cutting-edge technology and staffed by a team of qualified experts who will deliver seamless services and minimise any potential dangers or disruptions brought on by bad weather. To let passengers communicate with the control room, the Maha Mumbai Metro Operation Corporation Limited (MMMOCL) has also provided helpline numbers: 18008890505, and 18008890808. The State Disaster Management, Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM), Police Control Room, medical services, and fire brigade can all be reached by calling the hotline number.
The usage of wind velocity anemometers at 10 metro stations, five on each of lines 2A and 7, is one of the major strategies used by the Mumbai Metro. Mumbai Metro can closely monitor wind conditions and decide whether it is safe to continue operating services, thanks to these anemometers’ accurate measurement of wind speed.
Mumbai Metro is still dedicated to providing for its users’ convenience, satisfaction, and safety convenience, satisfaction, and safety of its users. The monsoon control centre is furnished with state-of-the-art hardware, software, and qualified personnel who will keep an eye on the weather and follow the passage of trains in real-time. According to MMMOCL CMD Dr. Sanjay Mukherjee, Mumbai Metro hopes to minimise disruptions and offer a dependable and efficient metro service to its passengers with the installation of this technology.
According to the MMMOCL, the newly established control room will stay in regular contact with the BMC’s disaster management cell as well as other appropriate authorities to ensure efficient coordination and the implementation of necessary precautions to protect passenger safety.
In addition, Mumbai Metro would run additional train trips to accommodate impacted customers and offer commuters a dependable alternative in the event of service disruptions in other modes of transportation.
Each metro station in the Mumbai Metro has a minimum of 64 CCTV cameras covering the platforms, road levels, and concourse areas. These cameras are accessible via the Security Control Room and Operation Control Centre, which allows for quick responses to any potential security or safety issues.
