Mumbai: The MMRDA (Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority) will Soon set up a simulator at the Monorail Wadala depot for training of the drivers, sources said. The project will cost the MMRDA around Rs 6 crore. The simulator is machine designed to provide a realistic imitation of the controls and operation of a vehicle.

More Information:

  • The simulator is used to train pilots for aircrafts or other complex system in training purposes.
  • An official said,“One simulator has to be set up to train the new loco pilots, since training them on ground is not feasible. The previous pilots were trained on the Phase-1 route (Chembur to Wadala Depot) before it was thrown open to public.”
  • In a pre-bid meeting held, bidders from USA, China and other international countries showed interest in setting up this simulator, according to MMRDA.
  • At present, 7 rakes are in operation on the 19.54 kms route from Jacob Circle–Wadala Depot–Chembur.
  • Once the drivers begin work in 3 shifts, the new 10 rakes will be in operation soon.
  • 51 drivers will be required to work in 3 shifts to run 17 rakes.
  • More drivers will be appointed to meet this requirement.
  • Recently, MMRDA has invited tenders for buying of 10 new Monorail train sets of 4 cars each for Mumbai Monorail Project.
