PARAGRAPH ON DELHI METRO FOR CLASS 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8

PARAGRAPH ON DELHI METRO FOR CLASS 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8

Prime Minister AB Vajpayee inaugurated the Delhi Metro project on 24 December 2002 and travelled with a host of other dignitaries from Shahadara to Seelampur. It was, in fact, a dream come true for Delhi. Delhi Metro provides many facilities. A great care has been taken for the safety measures. Escalators are equipped with several safety devices like protection against speeding, detecting a missed step etc. To reduce fire risk and improve safety, a tray to collect human hair, dust, water and oil has been provided. In addition, there is a unique sari guard feature that deflects lose clothing from getting trapped in the escalator. There are also emergency stop switches prominently displayed at three locations-bottom, top and middle. Not only this, the coaches have been designed for maximum comfort and safety. They are equipped with automatic opening and closing mechanism with the provision that the train cannot move unless all the doors are securely closed and locked. In case a door opens when the train is in motion, it would come to halt of its own. There are other safety measures in place; for example, the special design to reduce fire risk; emergency evacuation through front door; facility for the passengers to talk to the driver I an emergency; provision of announcements in case of an emergency; provision of communication of Operations Control Centre and the driver; and emergency illumination and ventilation in case of power supply failure.
