The country’s first-ever elevated metro rail to inaugurate on December 28 as the much-awaited metro rail is ready for commercial operation from Uttara to Agargaon.

“Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will formally inaugurate the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT Line)-6 of the metro rail from the capital’s Uttara to Agargaon at a function at the Bangabandhu International Conference Center on December 28,” Road Transport and Highways Division Secretary ABM Amin Ullah Nuri told this evening.

Earlier at a programme, DMTCL Managing Director MAN Siddique said that all sorts of construction works were completed and the MRT Line-6 was ready for commercial operation.

Siddique said the train was operating a system trial or service trial and it would operate a blank operation (moving without passengers) from December 18 ahead of the launching of the service.

“A total of 12 trains are ready for operation, but initially 10 will run having six coaches each train while the remaining two will be on standby to ensure an uninterrupted metro rail service if any one of the operational trains faces any problem or technical glitch,” he added.
